More and more Kenyans are living in urban settings and with that has come the need for more highrises to accommodate the growing numbers.
This has meant that like the reggae singers constant lament; our suburbs, towns, and cities are becoming concrete jungles. This has meant that space is more constrained and thus the need to use efficiently.
One area that is constantly overlooked in most apartments and flats is how people use their balconies. There are several ways one can maximise and smartly use their balcony.
They are below;
Add a small table
One can enjoy a morning coffee, brunch or work on your laptop using the table.
Bring in Greenery
One can plant fruits and veggies in their balcony and no it isn’t as hard as you imagine.
Put up a Hammock or a rocking chair
The hammock or the chair is a nice way for one to enjoy the breeze or read a book as you lounge at home.
Add Pattern with an Outdoor Rug
This will give your balcony character and make it more inviting to relax.
Opt for Floor Pillows
This is a wonderful idea for those who want to just chill and while away the day. One can have a nice conversation, read a book, play a board game or just meditate.
Surround Yourself with Flowers
Buy potted flowers and surround yourself with these beautiful reminders of nature’s best.
Install Built-In Seating
Put in some bench seating and use them while hosting your guests. Opt for Floor Pillows.
Design a Spot For Cocktails
Put up a temporary bar that you can use to prepare cocktails and drinks for yourself and guests.
