Not everyone can afford to go out of town for the whole summer, so a beautiful balcony is the only place where we can be alone with nature every day. What is the best way to decorate a balcony so that it is a place of rest for us and can serve as a place to store some of our things. We present for you 25 photos of beautiful balconies, where a practical and aesthetic challenge using various approaches.
The only thing that is located on this beautiful narrow balcony is a window sill-table top at the level of the railing and high bar stools. The only decorative element - the boxes with grass between the table top and the railing look very unusual. More practical natures can use them to grow herbs, more romantic balcony owners - for flowers.
A balcony decorated in the same style looks beautiful. Simple storage boxes are complemented by nautical pillows, and the same fabric is used to make an impromptu curtain for the bottom of the balcony.
Such a solution is not only aesthetically pleasing, but also quite economical; any housewife can always change the fabric on the pillows and curtains to her taste and mood.
A beautiful balcony with your own hands
Luxurious landing on the balcony is the basis of its aesthetic appearance. It is good if you are friends with flowers and they respond to your concern with healthy growth and abundant flowering. Then, instead of numerous pots on the balcony, you can make a small box under the railing, where you can collect all your indoor plants into a single composition. Fill in the spaces between the pots with gravel and minimally decorate the surface of the box, you will get a stunning effect.
If your scale suggests fewer plants, then the same idea can be implemented with small wooden boxes.
Elements from natural materials give a special mood to the balcony.
If you like tinkering, then making such a pot from a wooden saw cut will not be difficult for you.
For this idea, both the horizontal surface of the saw cut and its side part are suitable - in this case, the piece of wood should be larger in height, but smaller in diameter.
The same approach can be used to create miniature flower pots from wood scraps. This option is perfect for a collection of succulents or cacti.
A beautiful balcony means that it will be pleasant and interesting for you to observe all the small details of its design as well as the development of plants. A simple wooden flower stand can unexpectedly become the highlight of your balcony.
Flower pots of the original shape can be made with cement.
Cement will allow you not only to show your imagination in the form of pots, but also to create a roomy flower container with your own hands - inexpensive, stylish and practically of any size.
If you don't like the concrete surface, simply decorate the surface of the pot with twigs. They can be put on glue and glued to the pot, but it is better to tie them together on a thin wire, because their service life is short, and next year, the branches glued to the pot will turn into dust.
A beautiful balcony is different for everyone - for someone it is simplicity and convenience, for someone a small garden, but there is no doubt that its original inhabitants will appeal to everyone.
