Today, I’ve rounded up 10 DIY Projects to Upgrade Your Balcony. These projects can add vertical elements and visual interest to your balcony, provide screening, and a place to grow some plants.
As I discussed in my 5 Elements for a Great Balcony post, you can treat the sidewall of your balcony like an accent wall. Why not cover your feature wall with plants? You can do purely decorative plants, or you could grow edibles. I’d plant a whole wall of basil so I could have fresh pesto. Mmmmmm.
The projects range from fairly simply and needing just a few tools, to ones that involve sawdust and power tools. But don’t panic and click away – even those are pretty simple projects. So, don’t just plop a couple of chairs on your balcony and call it a day. Try one of these DIY projects, and your balcony will be “the” place to hang out!
