As a tenant, it’s on you to make a comfortable living space out of your Baltimore City rental home. The same could be said of your outdoor living spaces, as well. If your rental home has a patio or balcony, decorating it might prove to be a challenging task. Though with some creativity, you can add décor that will make your home’s exterior just as inviting as the inside.
One creative technique to decorating a patio or balcony is to add some greenery. Plants are a great addition to any room, inside or out. They’re a great adornment to any home, especially because they’re not too costly. On a balcony or patio, it is easy to create appealing groups of pots, flower boxes, or other green elements. Thereby, you invite natural beauty into your outdoor living space.
Another inventive manner to dress up a patio or balcony is with colorful furniture, cushions, or even curtain panels. A patio or balcony that is outside can be as comfortable as an interior living room. Add some durable outdoor furniture pieces to invite relaxation, paired with some bright pillows. You might also want to opt for an outdoor rug to make things seem a bit cozier.
Outdoor rugs are weather-resistant and washable, making them a desirable addition for any home. You’d be surprised how adding outdoor curtains or even sheer curtain panels to one or more sides of your patio or balcony can improve the overall feeling of coziness. Filmy curtains flowing in a cool breeze could be the missing piece to your dream scenario of a home!
For a more whimsical approach to patio or balcony décor, think about hanging a porch swing, hammock, or strings of lights. Hanging swings, chairs, and hammocks can foster both convenience and relaxation while adding the vibes of a beach getaway to your home’s exterior. Hanging décor like lights, paper lanterns, or even pottery can add both beauty and whimsy to a balcony or patio, promoting a charming space ready to use day or night.
Do you have a very small patio or balcony? That shouldn’t be a problem to decorate! For small spaces, think vertically. You could put up a decorative shelf on one wall and deck it out with potted plants, ceramics, and other knick-knacks. You could also go with an awning or decorative screen. Either will help provide both shade and privacy, and give your outdoor space a customized look and feel.
If your patio or balcony is your favorite gathering place with family and friends, go ahead and design your outdoor décor around entertaining. One thing you could do is make cold drinks and other refreshments more accessible. A rolling bar cart would be nice for this. Guests could easily grab the drink they want instead of having to walk inside the house every time. If big outdoor furniture isn’t your style (or in your budget), consider adding pops of color with decorative footstools, ottomans, or even large floor cushions. Hence, you bring about both seating and eye-pleasing decorative elements for your guests at the same time.
With a bit of creativity, it can be fun and easy to give your balcony or patio the form you want, and the function you need. Go ahead and be creative! Let your balcony and patio be a reflection of who you are.
