Today we will mainly address people who are in an apartment and who are lucky enough to have a balcony. There are lots of ideas to organize this outdoor space. We can think of pallets to create an outdoor sofa. We can also think of the planters that will allow you to flower your balcony. But the main problem with the balcony is to find garden furniture whose size is suitable for your space. It would still be a shame to waste space unnecessarily and not to benefit 100% from your balcony because of this detail. In this article, we suggest you discover where to buy garden furniture suitable for the balcony, but also the criteria to choose it well and inspirations to decorate your balcony. We hope all of this will give you ideas for this summer!
here are different criteria to take into account before buying a piece of garden furniture, especially for a small outdoor space like the balcony.
THE SIZE AND SIZE OF THE GARDEN FURNITURE
The first thing to look at, even before the aesthetics of the garden furniture, is the place it will take. When you have a large garden, it doesn’t matter when you choose a larger model than what you need. On the other hand, on a balcony, generally, square meters are counted. We must, therefore, think about optimizing space or at least not losing space unnecessarily. If you have a very small exterior, rectangular tables are to be avoided. We will leave more on a square or round table. These models are less bulky. The choice of seats is also taken into account. Garden chairs are generally more cumbersome than chairs. (And it’s also valid inside in the case of a small dining room for example!)
THE COMFORT AND USE OF YOUR BALCONY FURNITURE
The second point to choose your balcony living room is the comfort and use that you will have. It is all well and good to choose furniture that does not clutter your balcony, it must still correspond to your expectations! If you plan to eat on the balcony or just have an aperitif, the furniture on your balcony will be different. To take meals outside, it is better to choose a table of classic height while for a drink or a coffee from time to time, a low table is enough.
THE POSSIBILITY OF STORING BALCONY FURNITURE
Many sets of balcony furniture are foldable. This has a major advantage since it will take up less space when you want to clean your balcony or put it away for the winter period. In my opinion, foldable garden furniture is a big advantage when you lack space outside. It’s up to you to see if this meets your needs too!
WEATHER RESISTANCE OF THE BALCONY LOUNGE
Finally, the last point to look at is the resistance of furniture to weathering. If you have a balcony, it is likely that you will not have space to store your furniture during the winter. And even if your balcony is partially protected, it is not an interior space. Metal or wood when treated against moisture are the materials of choice for the exterior. When autumn is coming to an end, you can also protect your outdoor furniture with a well-tied tarp to guarantee the best durability of your furniture.
