How To Use Your Apartment Balcony In A Creative Manner

If you have a balcony no matter how small, you can turn that space into a place where you can do plenty of activities. Here are some creative ways in which you can use your balcony...

Reading Area

If you like reading, then your balcony can be a quiet getaway where you can do that. Grab a chair and put some cushions on it. Make the place comfortable so that you're not distracted. This is ideal for apartments that have a balcony facing away from the road since there will be less noise. When you are in your apartment you can take out a book or a magazine and read it.

Herb Garden

If you enjoy herbal tea or cooking with fresh herbs, there is no need to go to the farmer's market to get the herbs. Get a small container, make holes at the bottom, add some soil and plant your herbs. If you take good care of the plants, you should have a good number of herbs on your balcony. Whenever you are craving some herbal tea or preparing a meal, you can get what you need from there. If the balcony is very small, you can always use hanging pots. Ensure that this is not against building policy before you start planting.

Nap Area

If you like taking naps during the afternoon or in the evening, make your balcony a nap area. Hang up some hooks and make a hammock. This will become a very good place to take a nap away from the noise. It can also come in handy when you want to look at the stars on a starry night. You can place some pillows and a blanket there to cover yourself when it gets chilly. Of course, you can also put a rug or cushions down on the floor to make it more comfortable for star-watching.

Meeting Area

A balcony can be a great place to have drinks with friends. If you play cards, board games, or even have a book club, you can make your balcony a meeting place. Get some comfortable chairs, a small table, and some cushions for the chairs and this will be a very good meeting place to hang out and get some fresh air at the same time.

Cooking Area

There are barbeque grills that you can attach to your railing on the balcony. If you enjoy entertaining on the weekends, you do not have to be limited by the fact that you live in an apartment. Get one of these grills, and share a nice barbeque with your friends on the weekends. This is also an idea that may be limited by building policies, so find out if it is allowed.

Additional Tips

You can get mason jars and put candles inside them. When you light these up at night they will create a very attractive outdoor area. Here you can sit and relax by yourself, with your significant other, or a good friend. Have a beer or share some wine.
