The balcony is an extension of the home, and it is an area where many people relax and read a good book, enjoy beverages, and enjoy the great outdoors. Consider some decorating ideas for balcony, and transform your ordinary outdoor space into an extraordinary place for relaxing and spending time. Here’s one example; plants, of course, are the most natural decorating ideas for balcony. A few clustered pots of flowers and herbs can add spots of color to a drab table, enliven a rough, empty corner of your balcony, and even help shade an unattractive view. Even if you have never gardened before, you can choose from a number of practically foolproof plants ideal for containers, such as impatiens, begonias, English ivy and hardy herbs, such as basil and mint. If your balcony has an ugly wall you would like to hide, low planters of fast-growing bamboo will both screen the wall and lend a touch of Asian chic.
