Lucky enough to have an outdoor balcony space?
How you use — and decorate — it can make all the difference in your enjoyment of the space in the summer.
Are you a sun worshipper or entertainer? When you are limited on outdoor space, it’s important to realize your preferences and turn that small space into something stylish.
If you lack privacy for tanning during the day then consider extending your dining room outside.
From late-night dining, playing board games, working from home or weekend brunches, an extra dining space is a great way to utilize your balcony.
Got direct sun and lots of privacy? Turn your balcony into an outdoor spa furnished with loungers for lazing, a water feature to create soothing sounds; just add sunglasses and lotion!
