Every family has lots that are relatively small spaces, and decorating them is very troublesome. Because it's really not that easy to fully use space and decorate it beautifully. For us, a balcony can be a pantry, a dressing room, a small garden or a work area. Today I will share with you some precautions when decorating a balcony!
1. Make a good waterproofing
When finishing balcony, it is necessary to perform a good waterproofing of countertop, which can effectively prevent balcony from flooding. In addition, when installing balcony windows, we must pay attention to sealing gap, especially between outer window frame and window.
2. Do not make a false ceiling
The area of the balcony is not very large, but if you place a lot of things on balcony and dry clothes and bed linen, then there will not be much space left. Therefore, it is better not to do a false ceiling on balcony, although it looks prettier, it will be more depressing.
3. Balcony tiles
When choosing a balcony tile, first of all, you should consider its slip resistance. Since clothes will be dried on balcony, water will inevitably drain, which will easily slip and fall. In addition, color of tiles can be dark, which is more resistant to dirt. When laying tiles, take into account horizontal slope of balcony so that water flows into drain in balcony floor.
4. Balcony lighting
To illuminate balcony, it is best to choose a brighter ceiling lamp, which can be combined with a wall lamp, so that you feel better when watching night scene or reflecting on nightlife.
5. Green plants on the balcony
You should choose some green plants that are easier to grow for balcony green plants to avoid replacing plants frequently. Choose higher quality flower pots or they will be easily scraped off on windy days.
