5 ways to make the most of your outside space
If you are blessed with some outside space at home, then why not make the most of this. Whether this is a small balcony on the 21st floor of your condominium or if you have a terrace attached to your townhouse, there are several ways to utilise this to extend your living area and create a new place to enjoy.
Often the outdoor area becomes ignored, can turn into dumping around and is generally neglected. But put a bit of effort into this space and you will reap the rewards.

5 ways to make the most of your outside space

1. With a jaw-dropping city view and a sunset that deserves a sundowner

make your balcony a chill-out zone to relax after a hard day at work. Add some artificial grass, some cushions, and even a hammock if you have room for the ultimate urban escape.

2. Add some sparkle with some lights.

Whether these are candles set in lanterns or a string of outdoor fairy lights, your outside area can quickly be transformed into a charming space to enjoy in the evening with the right lighting.

3. If you have green fingers then an urban jungle is for you.

Regardless of the amount of space you have you can simply add some greenery to bring some nature to your home. Add a small herb garden if you are feeling particularly adventurous and remember to check what plants thrive well in your given conditions.

4. Should you be lucky enough to have a generous outdoor space to play with then add a table and chairs to dine under the stars.

Pick weather-appropriate furniture that requires minimal maintenance and your outdoor area will become the new place to enjoy your dinner or the place to invite friends to brunch at the weekend.

5. For families an outdoor area in a city is precious.

It provides an extra place to play and it is the perfect place for messy activities. Buy a small paddling pool for your children to cool down in, a sandpit to resemble a beach or just make this the place for painting knowing that you can easily wash everything down afterward.
