Make the most of your balcony this spring.

As the weather warms up, we all start dreaming about days spent relaxing in the sun and nights spent making a meal on the grill. But do you have enough space on your condo balcony? With these tips, you definitely do!

1.    Choose your seating wisely

Do you live alone? With your partner? Do you entertain often? Do you like to eat outside, or just sit and relax on sunny days? Consider how much seating you’ll realistically need, and shop accordingly. Buying a large outdoor dining set will just waste your space if you won’t need it.

2.    Keep it colourfull

Look for a few brightly coloured accent chairs, cushions, or a fun, patterned outdoor rug. Keeping things lively and fresh will make even a small patio space feel big and bright.

3.    Maximize vertical space

Consider an outdoor shelf to add height by drawing the eye upwards. Cover it with small planters, candles or lanterns, or use it for storage for BBQ tools, outdoor dining pieces, or gardening supplies.

4.    Out of sight, out of mind

Want extra seating for entertaining, but don’t need it on a daily basis? Choose folding or stacking chairs. Want to add an outdoor bench for relaxing? Look for one with storage underneath.

5.    Don’t compromise

If you love spending time outdoors, work with a builder who understands this! For example, at our Watermark community, every balcony starts at well over 40 sq. ft., plus residents have access to a spacious roof top terrace featuring lounge seating areas and an outdoor barbeque.  Queenscorp firmly believes that, even in a condo, you deserve a wonderful outdoor space to call your own.

Choose Queenscorp for a luxurious and large patio, giving you space to enjoy sunny days outside from the convenience of your urban condo community.
