3 Ways to Make Your Condo Balcony More Livable
February 1, 2018
The condo balcony or verda is often a foreseen space in a condo. Condo balconies are the most personal open space a condo dweller can get in the privacy of his/her unit. Aside from that, it’s part of the total square meter count that you pay for, not being able to use your balcony means that it is a sleeping asset, or worst: a wasted one. It’s important to accessorize that space as an extension of your personal living space, if you’re not making it livable, it is a waste of space. Here are three local condos that will inspire you to revamp your condo balcony!
1 Add Some Greens
Aside from adding a mini-garden with planters and succulents on a table, you can go the extra mile by layering your balcony with faux grass (obviously, real grass will be hard and close to impossible to maintain at those heights). To give your space a refreshing feel, add some AstroTurf or more commonly known as fake grass. You can get these from home depots per yard or at Dapitan Arcade for Php600.00 per yard. Measure your balcony and get right amount you need.
2 Make a Mini Patio
Layer your condo balcony with wooden floorings for a more rustic feel. You can get these at home depots per square meter. If you’re quite the green thumb, you can grow a vertical garden with some vines and a standing fence. Add outdoor chairs and a table for your personal hideout.
TIP: It is important to use outdoor furniture that can survive both heavy rains and extreme heat. However, we recommend that you bring in your furniture indoors if you won’t be using them for a long time to minimize wear-and-tear damage.
3 Turn it Into a Lounge
Add a high bar table and some matching chairs for your own personal bar. If your condo balcony is very narrow, this type of furniture fit-ins should be perfect for you. This condo’s table was customized, while the bar stools were purchased from a home store.
