How to do up your home – Balcony area

By Smith Subscribe to RSS | February 10th 2012 | Views:

A new concept in the interior decor industry that has evolved over the last few years is of theme homes. Those who can spare the little extra to give their dream homes a unique look go for theme homes in which the complete decor of the house is based on a particular theme. However, that does not mean that those who do not want to spend too much cannot enjoy the luxury of a theme decor.

In this series of articles on home renovation, we will discuss how to do up a balcony space giving it the tag of a theme balcony.

In theme decor, the most important aspect is choosing the theme. Once you have arrived at the theme, rest is not that difficult. One of the most commonly used themes when decorating balconies is the natural theme. Therefore, in this write-up we will discuss the natural theme for your balconies.

When thinking of a natural theme, nothing works best than taking inspiration from the nature itself. The serenity, the tranquility and the freshness that the touch of nature bestows upon anything is just unmatched by anything artificial decorating element. Therefore, if it is not 100 percent natural, then it is not fit to be used for the natural decor. Just like the eco friendly laminates for your balcony countertops. Wondering what this means? The idea is to give your balcony a natural look, which is incomplete without a mini garden. In whatever minimum space is available at your balcony, go for a smart and compact mini-garden using laminate countertops to rest plant holders, pots etc. If you use laminate countertops then it will not just effectively solve the space crunch, but will also prove useful for the mini-garden as you can not only rest plants on the countertops surface, you can grow some at the base and hang plant holders from the countertop itself.

Above all, if the countertop is made of eco friendly laminates, you can be sure that you are using a natural product that emits very little amount of chemical in the environment, thereby keeping the place toxin-fee and providing your plants with a much more healthy environment to grow. Just imagine yourself with a cup of coffee at this green balcony…in order to complement this look, if you have a little more space to spare, bring in the water element. Not just from Vastu perspective, but also to attract birds to your balcony, a small fountain or a pool is a good idea. The water element is going to add the required definition to your balcony space making it appear more diverse.

Once you are done with the garden and the pool, there’s just one more thing left and that is comfortable seating arrangement. You have to do this very cleverly. Keep in mind the remaining space and bring in chairs and tables that would not disturb the pool, the garden and movement in the balcony.

We suggest you go for portable style seating for your balcony. Get tables made of compact grade laminate blocks that can be folded easily. Another advantage of using compact grade laminate table is that you can customize the size as per your requirement.

Remember that there are many more ways to do up your balcony, what’s mentioned in this write-up is just one way through which you can get a themed look for your balcony without having to spend too much on it. All the products mentioned can be purchased at very nominal prizes from select brands.
