Balcony makeover - creating an urban oasis

Balcony makeover - creating an urban oasis

Inspiring working space, relaxed lounge for coffee moment and blooming garden - even small balcony can be all of these. It is time to makeover balcony for the spring season!

Why not expand your living room out? From the balcony you can enjoy the clear skies and the fresh air outside in the comfort of your own home. Invite a friend for a coffee to enjoy the warmth of the sun in your secret hideaway. And if the moment of coffee turns into a longer dinner party, you're ready to go for the sunset.


Plan your dream balcony

Refresh your balcony with a new, fresh painted surface to your old balcony furniture. Find color inspiration from flowers. Also, consider choosing more bold colours for your rest of the interior, and don't hesitate to stick them - now you can be daring!

The fresh yellow painted surface on the deck chairs was inspired by sunflowers. The colour is S302 Grapefruit.

Finish the whole makeover with warm feeling textiles. A relaxed hassle rug on the balcony creates a cozy atmosphere and invites you to enjoy the balcony barefoot. Remember that small details matter a lot.

Decorate with plants

The lush greenery is a luxury. Decorate with plants and make your balcony a secret garden by choosing large outdoor plants.

Get the most out of an urban oasis and give plants two purposes: edible plants serve as both a decoration and additional food supply. The wooden boxes were decorated with non-toxic Tikkurila Patio Verso wood oil.

Putting the idea into practice

Planting box

Fresh looking planting boxes are not only inexpensive but also easy to implement. The wooden boxes were treated with Tikkurila's Patio Verso wood oil to create a harmonious look. Patio Verso is non-toxic and therefore a safe choice for edible planting boxes. Not only does the treatment look good, it also protects the material from moisture.

Balcony chair

The yellow color of the chairs radiates with the sun. The chairs were upgraded to Unica Akva, colour S302. Unica Akva is suitable for outdoor use and for treated metal surfaces.
