Although a balcony is a window to the outside that already wanted many, the truth is that they can be a few meters but there are many people who choose to integrate them into the home to gain space. Yes, we are talking about the closed balconies, one of the most common reforms in small apartments. And it is logical, families are growing and more needs arise, and one of them is the covered space.
In today’s article we will share ideas for closed balconies, which have been closed not only to take advantage of cold days or bad weather, but also to become a very important part of the home, thus becoming an extension of the room , or the dining room. In other cases they are not an extension of another room but they become an environment more, like a reading corner, a study where set up a small office at home, or a sewing corner.
A corner for breakfast with views
Close the balcony does not mean that deprive us of a good view at breakfast time. Quite the opposite. The good of place enclosures on balconies or terraces is that we can use it both in winter and in summer. One way to make this space more useful is by placing nice chairs or stools and a small table (always depending on the available square meters). If the balcony were fully integrated and it was an extension of the house, we can even use a little larger furniture, without doors or passage areas.
Shelves in closed balconies
We love the shelves on closed balconies. As small as it is, we can install some open shelves where we can place not only books but also photos, travel memories or whatever comes to mind. An extra storage area that will give color to this “outside” space, without fear that rain or changes in temperature will spoil what we have here. It will be essential to have curtains to prevent the sun’s rays from damaging books and other objects.
Reading corners on closed balconies
An area to read and rest is another interesting option when we talk about balconies with enclosure. You can place from a hammock to create a chill out zone. A corner full of cushions in which to relax while enjoying a good book. A place where you can nap after summer meals (and why not, also, winter).
A small room outside with enclosure
You do not need to give a specific use to this new room in your home. Maybe you just want to create a covered outdoor lounge. A place where you can receive your visits and share a coffee or a meal while enjoying the light of day. Low wicker chairs and even a wooden bench and a low table, could be more than enough to configure this beautiful outdoor setting.
