Everyone’s house has a back space screaming for a makeover. It’s time to make your balcony less of a storage area and to breathe some life into it by decorating with some beautiful outdoor furniture.
“In India, people end up using it (balcony) like a utility instead of a sit out. It is very important to divide that space and revamp the décor,” says Shruti Keskar, a landscape architect. She also points out that only people living in high-rise buildings, independent houses or in a balcony which has a good view show interest in designing their balconies.
Furniture is the most powerful décor which decides whether the place should be a house or a home. This year, take a note of these trends to give your balcony, a new and trendy look.
Break the boundaries between indoors and outdoors. Nowadays, people are looking for space which feels indoors but is, in fact, outdoor. Throw in an outdoor rug along with desired furniture with a good amount of pillows and blankets. You can also add a small book rack to finish the indoor look.
Wicker furniture is something that always keeps trending with its evolving designs. And this furniture is prefect for outdoor décor. Get the wickers and paint them with some bold colours to give your outdoor space a customised look.
If you are blessed with more space, please go ahead with full fabric décor. It is elegant, trendy and extremely comfortable. Go for some pastel hues which would make the space look brighter.
This year’s trends got a little heavier. To our relief, concrete furniture has made a major comeback. Concrete is perfect for those who are looking for furniture with less maintenance and more tolerance against unpredictable weather.
Along with this wonderful decor, don’t hesitate to add some greens, LED lights and even a pebble path, if necessary, to accentuate the whole look and feel of your balcony.
