One apartment amenity some residents really appreciate the most is their balcony or patio. If you have one, make sure to get the most use out of it at any time of year! You can do this by personalizing it in a dew different ways. Today we have put together three suggestions to help spark your imagination when it comes to your apartment balcony or patio. Read on to learn more!
Create an Apartment Balcony Garden
Create a small fairy garden to put onto your apartment balcony or patio. Purchase a garden kit or put together some supplies from various spots like a craft store or dollar store, and check and see what you’ve already got on hand that might work. Start with a container. A few ideas for containers include terra cotta pots, baker racks, old-fashioned orange crates, a children’s wagon, pram, or a birdbath. By definition, apartment balcony gardens are small, and you will need some miniature items to complete your entire garden. Of course, you could be creative and fashion items by yourself, or you could make pieces to place into your garden too.
Container Garden to Scare Mosquitoes
Container plants that scare mosquitoes are beautiful additions to your patio or balcony. Some good ones to use are horsemint, rosemary, marigold, ageratum, lemon balm, citronella, basil, catnip, verbena, peppermint, lemon thyme, basil, oregano, geranium, lavender, and lemongrass. Most of them have other helpful properties too. If you need help deicing on which plants you should start growing, consider asking your neighbors and friends for their advice.
Furniture for Your Apartment Balcony and Patio
Your apartment balcony or patio is there for you to enjoy, so as you are decorating everything, make seating your top priority. It does not have to be full of furniture if you do not think you will use it, of course. But, try to stock it with a comfortable chair or two, a bench, and perhaps a table for your books, laptop, or food so you can enjoy the beauty of the outdoors without feeling crowded with furniture and any other decorations.
Consider all of these tips when decorating your apartment balcony or patio, and you will be able to enjoy it fully!
