How to Prepare Your Apartment Balcony for the Spring

There are many ways you can customize and prepare your balcony for the spring.

Spring has arrived, and there is no better way to make the most of the season than by spending time outside. Luckily for you, a lot of our Prescott Square Apartments include patios and balconies where you can enjoy the fresh air and sunshine. Like the rest of your apartment space, your outdoor area deserves a bit of spring cleaning and a refresh. Read on to learn how to discover how you can customize and prepare your balcony for the spring!

Start Off with Some Spring Cleaning on Your Apartment Balcony

While spring cleaning, set aside a bit of time to tackle your balcony or patio, we highly recommend washing everything out there, from the rugs to the floors to any décor or furniture items. A nice, deep clean from the top to the bottom will wash away the dirt that will naturally accumulate from being outdoors. Once you have a spotless, clean slate, you can begin transforming your patio.

Plant Seasonal Blooms on the Apartment Balcony

Nothing says the spring like plenty of blooming flowers. Take a trip to your own local gardening store or nursery and grab a couple of planters and seasonal blooms. You could even try planting some fresh herbs that you would be able to incorporate into your home cooking. Plus, a garden on your balcony will attract birds, butterflies, and bees, and before you know it, your patio will be the ultimate spot for springtime.

Create a Relaxing Space

Your patio should be your own sanctuary, so it is very important to decorate it as such. Remove items from the space that will detract from the atmosphere, like old, worn-down ladders, furniture, etc. Find decoration items that will encourage you to go outside, like a comfy bean bag or some lights to hang up. Decorate the patio in a way that will bring you peace and comfort while following your apartment community’s regulations and rules.

Keep Your Pets All in Mind

If you do not go anywhere without your pets by your side, it is crucial to transform your balcony or patio with your pets both in mind. The thing you should consider first is their safety. Take a look at the balcony railing and think about whether your pets would be able to get out easily. If they could, then add some extra protection to help provide you with peace of mind. Consider adding beds, dishes, and some toys to keep your pets entertained.
