Many people ignore decoration of balcony when decorating, but in fact, since balcony is connected to living room, decoration of balcony will affect appearance and lighting of house. If you don't do it well after checking in, you will understand how concerned you are. Let me share with you some precautions when decorating a balcony.
1. Bearing capacity
The bearing capacity of a balcony is an important consideration. Many people find that walls on both sides of a balcony are very intrusive and they want to remove walls during finishing. In addition, there are windows between balcony and interior. The counterweight wall under window has been removed to expand space. There will be some security issues. Therefore, supporting structure of balcony must not be damaged.
Now most washing machines are placed on balcony, which not only allows you to fully use space on balcony, but also makes it very convenient to dry clothes immediately after washing. However, since balcony wall itself is an outside wall, it will be relatively damp, plus it's a dishwashing area. Therefore, waterproofing of balconies should also be given attention, it is necessary to waterproof not only ground, but also walls.
3. Chain safety
The balcony can also be designed as a seating area or even a kitchen. If balcony is conceived as a functional area, it would be appropriate to add several outlets. However, due to location of balcony, environment is mostly relatively humid. Therefore, lamps and lanterns must be chosen moisture resistant. If you want to locate switch outlets on a balcony, it is best to have waterproof protective covers and leak proof devices to avoid potential safety hazards.
4. Balcony material selection
Many people like to make a closed balcony, which can not only increase useful area of the living room, but also make living room more spacious and transparent. However, attention should be paid to packaging of balcony. The material of balcony must be made of strong and durable materials.
5. Thermal insulation
Choose glass with good thermal insulation. It can effectively block heat from outside. At same time, this type of glass generally has good sound insulation, which makes it possible to make use of room more comfortable. In addition, thermal insulation film can be pasted on glass to make thermal insulation effect better.
