Make the Most of your Private Outdoors
May 17th, 2017
Warmer days and sunnier skies are in our sights, which means more time will be spent outdoors. At StreetSide, we know how important it is to have a space outside to breathe fresh air. To make that space as personal as your indoors, we’ve come up with a few ways you can style your balcony or patio.
When the sun goes down and the heat continues, you can still enjoy your outside enclave with a few lighting ideas. String up fairy lights, scatter old-fashioned lanterns, or light a few candles.

Create a cozy setting with pillows on chairs and blankets close-at-hand if the weather turns a little chilly. Your outdoor space can feel as welcoming as your living room.

If you don’t have a backyard, bring the backyard to you with plants layered on your balcony. You could even use an outdoor shelf to proudly display your green thumb. It’s the perfect spot to start an herb garden.

Decking is an easy and inexpensive refresh to your concrete balcony. After some simple measuring, stop by Ikea for a few decking options. Or roll out a rug.
Once summer has breathed its last breath, your patio furniture may be exposed to the cold and wet months ahead. To keep them intact for next summer, buy furniture that folds and is easy to store away. Or get a tarp to throw over your summer pieces.
Find a home for otherwise discarded items. Large wooden pallets can quickly become a lounger.
