Get the bigger balcony you've always wanted. No matter how small your balcony may be, secondary storage solutions help you combine efficient storage for anything from your bike to sports equipment, record collection, flowers or gardening tools with a space you can still use to relax and hang out in.
Your own balcony garden
When you love the outdoors, no small space can get in the way of enjoying it. Turn your balcony into a gardening haven with the help of some practical storage pieces for your tools and pots, and lots of plants. A proper gardener’s balcony really comes to life when your plants and flowers are beautifully displayed. Use HYLLIS shelving units to display your beautiful plants and to keep anything you might need under the cover (in an open balcony, it will protect your things from rain and dust). Covered with a special cover, the shelving unit can also serve for a small greenhouse, as each cover has an opening that allows air to circulate.
Make space for laundry
Sure, laundry can be a real chore. So why not change the scenery and take it to the balcony? Start with HYLLIS shelving units, add wall cabinets high on the wall to keep flammable and toxic items such as bleaches, detergents or softeners safe, and some SORTERA sorting bins for different types of dirty laundry. If you have an open balcony, add some sturdy, waterproof KLÄMTARE boxes and don't forget a foldable drying rack. When the laundry becomes dry, it can be kept on wall hooks to save even more space.
For leisure and sports equipment
Of course you’ve got enough room to support all of your hobbies. Just use those balcony walls. Place your sports and tourism equipment on HINDÖ shelves, use BROGRUND wall shelves with rails for small items or sportswear airing, or mount them lower on the wall to place your footwear and hiking boots. How about a bike? To save space, you can hang it on the wall, too. When the balcony is organized in such a smart way, there is enough room left for the wooden ÄPPLARÖ outdoor furniture and for you to relax after all the activities.
Many seasons, one shelving unit
The HYLLIS shelving units for both indoor and outdoor use plus the SAMLA boxes made of transparent plastic are a great combination for those who want to store and easily find their things. They suit for anything from things you use every day to those you only need for certain seasons: helmets, balls and skateboards, flower pots, brooms, cleaning clothes, working tools, tableware for summer picnics, thermoses or even Christmas tree decorations... With boxes in different sizes, it becomes easier to find just the right place for everything, both the nick-nacks and the big and heavy stuff. Besides, lids make these boxes stackable, so you can save the space.
Boxes, boxes, boxes!
Shelving keeps smaller items tidy, especially when you load up on SAMLA boxes with lids. Made of clear plastic, they make everything easy to find. If you have a lot of things to stow away, you might want to stack boxes on top of each other. It saves valuable floor space and gives room for other parts of life than storage. But to reduce the tipping risk, we recommend that you don’t stack them higher than 90 cm. To make SAMLA boxes serve for longer, we only recommend using them indoors. In a pantry or on a glazed balcony, for example.
A pantry for autumn goods
If you like cooking and always prepare something delicious using the autumn harvest, you definitely need a place to store your masterpieces. Don't have a cellar or enough space in the kitchen? Then, make a pantry for autumn goods on your balcony. Use the sturdy HYLLIS shelving units made of steel to store your pickled or preserved vegetables, bottled juice or boxes with jars, and add SORTERA sorting boxes for apples, potatoes or other garden goods.
When balcony is near your kitchen
In a small kitchen, there sometimes isn't enough room for all the utensils. However, you can store plenty of them on the glazed balcony near your kitchen. The OMAR shelving units are firm enough to hold large pots and pans, small kitchen appliances, cleaning supplies, or greenery pots. They also stand steady on an uneven floor since the feet can be adjusted. And even better, with all the kitchen utensils stored at one end of the balcony, you’ve got lots of space left over for other activities.
