Whether you rent or own an apartment, the balcony is usually the most ignored part of your dwelling place. More often than not they are kept completely bare or unused. Having a private outdoor space in the form of a balcony is something that most people yearn for when they don’t have a sprawling yard. So why not have a beautiful balcony that makes you feel comfortable and pleasant. Here are a few balcony decoration ideas to give your balcony the makeover it deserves.

Using plants like the curtain creeper on your balcony rail will create an illusion of a green vertical wall giving a unique look to the balcony. Instead of leafy creepers you can use flowering creepers like bougainvillea or wisteria to add color to an otherwise dull balcony.
