A balcony is a must-have amenity for apartment dwellers and instead of just using this space to dry clothes, balconies can be turned into an outdoor treat for relaxing and entertaining. A garden created in a relatively narrow space typically in an apartment or condo with restricted space is often called a balcony garden. A limited yard space does not stop people from gardening and now many are transforming their balconies into functional garden spaces and vertical gardens help with maximum space utilization.
A tastefully adorned apartment balcony can complement the home design and decor. One can grow a wide variety of herbs and vegetables in apartment balcony and create your own small organic farm. Home decor such as pillows, cushions, blankets, serving trays and furniture can also be used to decorate your balcony space. If the balcony receives sufficient sunlight, DIY solar-powered lighting units are a great addition as they are easy to install and are inexpensive.
Without spending too much, you can make your balcony a fabulous exterior space and take maximum advantage of your beautiful patio to enjoy the view outside. Your apartment balcony can glow all year round with strategic placement of solar lights. Solar units being wireless make them very easy to be installed just anywhere in the balcony and they can be shifted from one place to another effortlessly.
Solar garden lights are small and elegant-looking lighting units of around 40 cm height that can be pushed into soil-filled pots or bolted to the concrete flooring of the balcony. All in one solar street light with motion sensors can also be installed on balcony walls for better illumination. There is no much heat produced from solar lights, making them safe around plants, pets and people. A solar-powered balcony will continue to shine even when the apartment has a power failure.
