Balconies are usually closed with windows in middle, but there are also semi-closed or open balconies. The last two balconies must be equipped with railings, height of which must be up to 1.5 m, and installation must be solid.
3. Reservation of water and electricity
Be sure to plan use of balcony before finishing, especially if balcony is turned into a garden or laundry room, location of water and electricity should be reserved. Whatever functional space is transformed into, it is necessary to reserve socket, and it is best to choose a socket with a protective cover.

Each time flowers and plants on balcony are watered, they more or less spill onto ground. Laid wooden floors require immediate and quick cleaning. In event of heavy rain, rainwater seeps into balcony, and if you are not careful, the floor will get wet. I have to look at it and wipe it dry, I'm very tired.

Especially for small sized balconies, the selection of suitable balcony materials and reasonable design can make balconies both practical and beautiful.
