The balcony is a small area in house, but balcony can be turned into many functional areas. For example, a balcony can be designed as a laundry room, an office, a seating area, a small garden, etc. The balcony is constantly changing. But balcony cannot be changed at will, so what are problems with finishing balcony?
1. Security Issues
Safety is a top priority for any finish, and load-bearing capacity of balcony must be considered. If you want to install lockers on a balcony, it must not be overloaded, and do not put too much furniture on balcony to avoid safety hazards caused by overloading.
2. Wall problem
In order to increase space, we decided to open balcony and interior to increase practical area and functions. The load-bearing wall should not be dismantled. If load-bearing wall is removed, it will directly affect stability of balcony, and even cause balcony to collapse directly.
3. Problems with water and electricity:
If area of \u200b\u200bthe house is small, often balcony is used as a laundry room, responsible for washing and other functions. Then balcony must be waterproof, water supply and drainage in the design design.
4. Privacy issues:
A balcony can also be a private space. To protect privacy, it is easiest to install curtains. It is best to install blinds on balcony that block view.
5. Lighting issue:
Many owners will install ceiling lights on their balconies, but once they move in, they find it very inconvenient. Although balcony is small, we also want to divide it into zones for lighting. As main light source, you can choose a ceiling lamp or wall lamp, if it is a balcony for relaxing, you can think about making a chandelier, and if there is a place to study, then be sure to have a table lamp or sconce.
