my balcony needs serious renovation -
any ideas? what kinda floor should i build? tiles for the walls also?
it's a small space but i'd like to build it so that it's big enough
for a comfy chair for a cup of coffee and a newspaper.
1. Clean it up.
2. Get rid of all the plants, flower boxes, glass plant table, garbage
pails, towel rack, and whatever that thing is that is folded on the floor.
3. That tree is in the way of any view and looks too close to the house.
4. Replace the bench with a chair. You can use that glass table to set
your coffee down.
from buffalo ny:
don't touch the tree at all, it may bring the birds in close for a
visit and give you some seasonal shade. if you have a friend with a
green thumb, give her those plants. by making the balcony clean and
choreless it will be a welcoming retreat from the household hustle.
[or perhaps the plants would enjoy thriving on a planter that hangs
out beyond the railing in the rain and sun.] determine how the sun
falls at what seasons and at what time of day onto this part of your
home. maybe it's a sunny morning nook and a shaded afternoon spot
that's just waiting for a hosing and spring scrubbing, some
interlocking colored rubber 24" x 24" floor mats, and a long couch
glider for three or hammock for one for a nap. depending on the
climate and the overhead supports, an awning or sun-diffusing fabric
may be desired.
