If you have a balcony, it can be easy to just keep it an empty space, with perhaps a couple of chairs and a table. While this is nice, there are so many more things you can do with it to really make it the perfect space to relax and entertain visitors. We recommend that you invest in some nice outdoor furniture such as an outside sofa with cushions. You can add a rug to the floor, plants and fairy lights. You can also give your balcony a contemporary touch with glass balustrade. This is safe, beautiful and really can have a great impact on how your balcony looks.

Consider splitting your outside space into different areas

This is a particularly useful one if you have children, as it’s so easy for your outside space to become overrun with footballs and toys. To avoid this, have different areas of your garden for different things and try to separate these with something like a path, fence or flower beds. You could have a space where the kids can play their games, where you can have BBQs and cocktail evenings and a space for gardening. Ensure everyone knows what each zone is for.

Add lighting

Lighting in backyard

Lighting is another really important factor when it comes to elevating your outside space. You can add lighting in your garden in so many ways, from little solar lights that you pitch into the ground, to fairy lights that you can drape over your balcony or your fence. You could add spotlights to guide a path, or little lights to highlight your flowers. Solar power lights tend to be a great option to save wiring lights up to your house.  

These are just a few things you can do that can help you to elevate your outside space for summer. When the weather warms up, you’re going to want to have people around to enjoy BBQs, drinks and just generally catching up under the sun. To do this, you want your outside space to be as welcoming and inviting as you can. Considering everything from the plants, to the lighting, to separating the space into different zones can really make a difference.
