Decorating a Balcony for Spring: 5 Colorful Ideas

Staff Writer · May 31, 2011

When decorating a balcony in spring, you should consider using a lot of flowers. A balcony is an extension of the house, and you can express your taste when you decorate it. Here are five colorful spring ideas to try:

1. Green Plants

Decorate your balcony with a lot of green plants to give it an outdoorsy air. The plants can be placed along the edges of the balcony or you can hang them in decorative baskets. Containers can add a touch of color to the balcony and give it a spring-like look.

2. Bright Flowers

Containers with bright seasonal flowering plants can be incorporated into the green plants as well. Care should be taken to consider the amount of sunlight and shade your balcony gets. You should choose appropriate flowering plants so that they thrive in the environmental conditions of your balcony.

3. Bamboo

You can use a bamboo fence along the outer edges of the balcony to screen the plants from the seating area. Bamboo is inexpensive and can be secured to wrought iron or wood easily. A unique and decorative touch can be imparted by varying the height of the bamboo fence.

4. Furniture

A table and a couple of chairs of wrought iron painted white in color can look perfect in the spring. A vase containing some flowers can make a lovely centerpiece for the table. If the balcony is sunny, you might consider using an umbrella for the table.

5. Area Rug

A braided area rug in beautiful colors should be placed under the table or in the middle of the balcony to add a splash of color and demarcate different areas of the balcony.

A nicely decorated balcony can be the perfect getaway after a long day at work, and is well worth the expense.
