The balcony in house is a special area, and design and use of this space will give us big surprises. Let's look at what you need to pay attention to when decorating a balcony.
1. Balcony support
Before decorating a balcony, one must first understand its bearing capacity, and storage should not exceed its load. Try not to put heavy furniture on balcony, so as not to fall off balcony, which is a great danger.
2. Schema modification
Before finishing, balcony should be well planned so that it is convenient to use. The balcony needs separate lighting for daily use. If it is used as a living balcony, a reserved washing machine socket must be provided. It is best to install a waterproof cover on outlet on balcony to prevent risk of a short circuit or electric shock due to rainwater.
3. Waterproof balcony
There must be a tap or a washing machine as a living balcony, and washed clothes are also dried right on balcony. Or if balcony is transformed into a kitchen, it is necessary to make a waterproofing layer and a drainage system on ground.
4. The counterweight wall cannot be removed
Many associate balcony with interior, but not all walls can be removed. It should be clear that if this is a counterweight wall, then this wall is related to stability of balcony. Therefore, it cannot be dismantled and redone, which will lead to risk of collapse of balcony.
5. Green plants on balcony
A beautiful balcony should be decorated with green plants. Green plants should not be too much or too little, too much will affect line of sight, too little will make space too monotonous.
