Are you looking for interesting ways to give your balcony garden a mini makeover? Then you’ve come to the right place. Without spending a huge amount of money, you can easily make your balcony or veranda a relaxing sanctuary right there in your home. With these simple and cost effective ideas, you can turn your balcony into a serene place from which to admire and enjoy the view. Expert tip: If you have a lack of space in your veranda, you can try adding vertical pots to your balcony walls which will free up the space for these seating arrangements.
An easy way to quickly change the look and feel of your balcony is to add a swing or a jhula. You can buy a jhula for home online and take a look at the different types of swings available in the market. There are wall mounted swings, hanging swings and also hammocks. Keeping in mind the decor of the balcony, pick a swing that can seat at least two people and create a cozy and fun nook in your home. Swings are fun to spend time on and can be enjoyed by kids and adults both.
Adding balcony chairs and tables is the most fail-safe way to make space to sit in the balcony without spending much. The market is full of great options that come in wood, plastic and metal and you can choose the one that will blend seamlessly with your home’s decor. Chairs and tables in the balcony should be mobile enough in case they need to be moved during monsoons so opting for light-weight chairs like settees is a good idea. With these, you can enjoy your evening tea or read the morning newspaper in a peaceful space.
If you want to opt for something that isn’t structured and can be moved around then bean bags in the balcony are great options. These are as good as low level couches and 2 or more bean bags can easily fit into a mid sized balcony. They are comfortable and work great if you want to add a touch of your own personality. The best thing about bean bags is that even if they deflate a little they can always be filled with more ‘beans’ and will last a very long time.
If you want to go a step further and make a permanent and durable place to sit in your balcony, you can add a cemented parapet in your balcony. Without costing much, this can be a great addition to your veranda and you can make a DIY project out of it by painting it yourself. Along with this you can paint your veranda and add a few cushions to the parapet and you’ll have a brand new place to chill with friends and family.
With these few tweaks and changes, you can spruce up your balcony and veranda without spending too much money on the makeover. With various discounts and offers available online, you’re bound to get a bang for your buck.
