Are you always complaining about the lack of storage space in the house? If you are, the answer to your issue is most likely right in front of your eyes. Now you need to look out the window (and look at the balcony!).
You can transform your balcony into a beautiful storage sanctuary without sacrificing style with a few smart tips and tricks. This dependable guide will stoke your imagination. Shall we begin then?
Time to pick under-seat storage
The balcony is no exception to the law of multifunctional furniture being a golden solution for space-constrained homes. To make the most of every nook and cranny, consider balcony seating along with built-in storage (drawers or cabinets). Slimline wall seating can provide ample storage while providing comfy lounging space for lazy nights on the deck!
Add wall storage
The balcony wall is frequently the most underutilized part of the space. Install a storage device to make it do some heavy lifting. An open shelving display can help to elevate the look of your balcony. If you must use an open storage solution, make sure it’s only for sturdy, wind-resistant items that the elements won’t damage. Alternatively, if you’re short on space, opt for floating shelves. These can serve as useful storage surfaces while not taking up valuable floor space.
Coat wooden furniture in enamel paint and water sealant to protect it from pollution and other harmful elements. This will help ensure that your balcony furniture lasts a long time.
Ottomans as Storage
Invest in a few trendy storage-enabled ottomans and place a couple of them on the balcony. Not only will they swallow your throws and cushion when not in use, but can be convenient spaces to set down drinks on, when you have company.
A dedicated storage chest brimming with style and character will add a fantastical flair to your balcony. It’s critical to choose a material that can withstand the elements in an outdoor setting. Wood, wicker, rattan, metal, stainless steel, and wrought iron are just a few of the materials that can withstand the Indian environment, though they all require some maintenance.
Spot-lit wall alcoves can add a touch of elegance to your balcony while also expanding your storage options. Use these nooks to hold knick-knacks, trinkets, or to showcase potted plants.
A combination of floor-to-ceiling and cupboards can be the ideal addition to any balcony, combining uncomplicated charm with maximum functionality.
Consult your carpenter first about the best products to use to weather-proof your cupboards, just as you would with any outdoor furniture.
These are some of the ways you can increase the storage space of your balcony. They look amazing and add a nice element of surprise. Hope you found that quick read useful and continue to check us out for more decor tips and tricks.
Happy decorating, everyone!
