How to upgrade your balcony

How to upgrade your balcony

How I would love to have a balcony.

Many years ago when I was at Uni I had a teeny tiny one with old, worn, iron railings. I furnished it with a small iron chair and a little table. It led off my bedroom and I just adored it. I would sit outside early in the morning with a coffee and listen to the birds in the garden and take a deep breath before my day began. It was a wonderful time. I remember an old boyfriend serenading me from underneath it once too. Very Romeo and Juliet.

It was however concrete and a bit ugly and looking back I so wish I had taken a bit more effort to make it really beautiful and much more comfortable

We are currently on the lookout for a new home and I would absolutely love our new property to have a little balcony for my early morning coffees and maybe  a late night glass of wine too, under the stars.

roof window balcony is a wonderful concept and one I would adore in my new home.

 

Gosh isn’t this just gorgeous. All that lovely light and a chance to step out int0 the fresh air too. Oh I would just love this!

This style of balcony would be a serious upgrade on my old concrete one with rusted iron railings.

I would definably add a lantern, perhaps a few fairy lights and a lovely plant or two. You could even trail plants form the railings to save the ground space. If I had a large enough balcony i would but a little patio heater for it so I could maximize the time I spent out there.

If all I had room for though was a little chair I’d try and get a little  rocker and I would buy a beautiful soft throw in baby blue  to keep me cozy when I was out there. Finally, I came across some lovely ideas to make the most of your balcony and turn it in a tiny garden.

Oh yes a balcony upgrade from my past and a lovely addition to my home indeed.

Wouldn’t it just be the perfect place to read too?

    I’ve been lucky enough to go to Verona and stand underneath the balcony Shakespeare supposedly used as inspiration for Juliet’s balcony, and I have to say, it was pretty small! It may be idealistic but I’d much prefer most modern balconies as they are made for two. Balconies are best when they are sociable, definitely, but they have to be aesthetic too, as they have such a capability to be the most calming place in the house.
