Home gets better with IKEA: let the warm season in
Although the weather outside is still a bit changeable, now is the best time to start preparing your outdoor space for the upcoming warm season. Whether you’re looking for somewhere to enjoy breakfast with a view, a place to nurture your green fingers, or a cosy corner to kick back and relax after a long day, here’s how you can make your balcony work for all these activities.
A summery space to unwind
We believe the balcony is the unsung hero of the great outdoors. This little slice of outside space is brimming with potential just waiting to be released. So even if your balcony has strict space limitations, a bit of planning combined with flexible furniture is all you need to create a personal pop-up place in the sun. With foldable TÄRNÖ, stackable TORPARÖ and durable ÄPPLARÖ furniture, you can swiftly arrange a spot to enjoy the undisturbed me-time or a dining area for some tasty family meals.
Your feet will thank you
Walking barefoot on cold ceramic tiles or concrete floor is far from what most of us enjoy. Wouldn’t it be much better to feel the natural warmth of wood each time you step out to your balcony? We think so too. If you want to create that pleasant feeling of wooden seaside paths at your own outdoor space, use the RUNNEN floor decking tiles. With a top layer of acacia wood and a base of polypropylene plastic, they are just perfect for outdoor use and easy to install without any additional tools.
Missing the greenery outside?
If natural landscape is not yet as lush as you’d like to, create a green oasis of your own. Right here, on the balcony! You can move the indoor plants outside with a help of NISSAFORS trolley or arrange a vertical garden on the shelves of some sturdy HYLLIS shelving units. These are perfect for plant pots and plants ⎼ and can easily be transformed into a greenhouse if completed with a transparent HYLLIS cover.
The whole garden in the pots
It is possible to keep your household stocked with fresh greens, even if you don’t have a garden. All you need is some BOYSENBÄR pots suitable for both indoor and outdoor use. They are frost-resistant, made of concrete, come in different sizes and are ideal for growing anything from herbs to flowers to tomatoes.
Ready. Set. Enjoy!
With all the balcony corners arranged and organised, now all that’s left is waiting for a better weather. Just don’t forget to add some fluffy KUDDARNA chair cushions for extra comfort, a VARDAGEN jar with tap to serve those cold home-made drinks, and let the sunrays light up your balcony in the evenings as well – SOLVINDEN lighting chains are solar-powered and offer a sunny mood lighting long after the sunset.
