Room With A View – Create A Balcony Retreat

A balcony can be a perfect place to relax on a warm summers evening. If you’re lucky enough to have a balcony, don’t let it become a home for bikes, toys and other junk. Transform it into a functional recreational space where you can sit and watch the world go by.

I love this suspended bench. I could happily sit here with a nice glass of wine and a good book. Image from Pinterest

  1. I love this little closet it looks adorable! 😀

  2. Great idea!!! A balcony is really for leisure, but somebody is using it as a junk area. Actually it is a nice place to rest and having fun. We can maintain a small garden there, it gives fresh air to home.
    Thank you for sharing your great views.
