Its no secret at all that access to outdoor space in your apartment, no matter how small, is essential to your mental and physical health. The ability to walk outside and enjoy the early morning sunshine, make a phone call, or enjoy the view all add to a more inclusive and enjoyable living space. This can be an important factor in deciding where to buy or rent a new apartment. While all apartment balconies are great, some are better than others. Square footage or your setup can make all the difference in the world. While it might be hard to visualize, there is a lot that you can do to improve your apartment balcony setup. Even if it looks bland right now, we’re confident you can turn it into a warm, cozy, and bright escape. In this time of a pandemic due to the Coronavirus, we should prioritize getting some fresh spring air on our balconies while we practice social distancing. Here are four ways to improve your apartment balcony.
Give it a Clean Sweep
Balconies collect plenty of grime and dirt, especially after they’ve been battered by inclement weather all winter. Start by giving the space a nice sweep, mop the floor, and dust off the railings. While your apartment management might wash the outside of your apartment balcony, you will be responsible for the interior, so give it a solid wipe down. Cleaning is one of the first steps for improvement.
Lay Down Tiles or Rugs on Your Apartment Balcony
This can make a world of difference in the feel and look of your balcony, transforming it from a chilly and sterile space to a warm and inviting one. Look for temporary rugs or tiles that can be laid over the ground. Your feet and your pets will love this.
Add a Stylish Urban Garden
Consider where the sunlight hits your apartment balcony for the longest stretch of the day, then add railing planters, planter walls, flower beds, and pots. If your climate is warm enough, you could even try to grow a few veggies or two.
Lighting Adds a Cozy Ambiance in Your Apartment Balcony
Think about adding string lights, candles in lanterns, and flameless candles to add some twinkle during the late nights on your apartment balcony.
