1. Change the Floors
Most balconies have concrete floors. The greys of the balcony can make it look cold, bland, and uninviting. You can add pizzazz to the space by adding stick-on tiles in different colors. Interlocking tiles can be your DIY project elevating your balcony space.
2. Add a Rug

The rug’s texture adds an element of comfort and warmth to your outdoor space, making it feel like it’s a part of your home. Moreover, a balcony rug can also as a tint of color and liven up space.
3. Plant vertically
Since balcony space can’t be expanded, the floor space on your balcony needs to be utilized smartly. While adding plants is an excellent way to oasis-ify the area, keeping planters on the floor will take up a lot of space. The best way to add greenery is to plant vertically. Wall planters can add privacy and vibrance to your space.
