Living your best balcony life is easy at Crest at Skyland Town Center
Balcony life is the best life! For anyone that lives in an apartment home with an outdoor space understands this very well. There’s nothing quite like being able to step out and get some fresh air right when you wake up or having a quaint setting to be able to entertain family and friends whenever they visit. A balcony is an expansion of your living space, which means it requires just as much if not more design thought than went into the indoor portion of your apartment. At Crest at Skyland Town Center Apartments, we know a thing or two about balcony life. We offer a wide variety of balcony-style floor plans that give our residents a perfect opportunity to express their outdoor creativity. Whether you already have a balcony space in your apartment or looking to get one soon, you must know the elements of making your outdoor space as inclusive as possible. Below is our curated list of some great ways to begin creating a balcony aesthetic that you can be proud of; having an outdoor space that you never want to leave no matter what season we’re in is the goal. Use these essential balcony tips to get started today!
1. Add something cozy to step on.
One of the best ways to start your balcony design journey is by adding a soft flooring area. An outdoor rug or a turf placement instantly turns your outdoor space into an outdoor living room. There is something special about being able to step out to your balcony bare-footed on a Friday night or early Saturday morning and embrace the soft footing while enjoying incredible views.
2. Lights, Lights, and More Lights.
Decorating your balcony in lights is a fantastic way to add a glow to your outdoor space. There are various light color options you can utilize to add a pop to your balcony paradise. When it gets dark outside, the intimate setting the lights create will make you want never to come inside!
3. Greenery goes a long way.
Adding some greenery will always add a warm personality to your outdoor space! When you engulf yourself in some of your favorite plants, you turn your balcony into a place of serenity and peace. When shopping for outdoor plants, make sure you keep an eye out for outdoor-specific plants. Having plants made for an outdoor setting will save you a lot of time in plant maintenance.
4. Outdoor Furniture, of course.
Having some kind of furniture on your balcony is a must! We know that balconies come in all different shapes and sizes. Whatever size your balcony is, be sure to get some outdoor furniture that will mix well with the dimensions of your outdoor setting, whether they’re small chairs with a table to match, larger recliner chairs, or even a couch. Creating a relaxed atmosphere on your balcony will serve you well in your apartment living experience.
5. Think outside of the box.
One of the best things about your balcony space is that it’s not the first thing people see when they walk in. What does this mean? This means you have the green light to think outside of the box in your design process. Get crazy with color selections, get some super exotic plants, add a hangable picture. Whatever comes to your mind, do it! And then do it again! There’s no such thing as regrets when it comes to putting together your outdoor space.
