Best Balcony Design Ideas For Indian Homes And Apartments

Balconies are intimate beautiful spaces that can be designed to look and feel as warm and inviting as the rest of your home. Indian balcony designs are often under-explored and under-utilised because of the least amount of attention given to them. As much as can be done with them, the best balcony designs are those that allow the natural look and feel of the space to shine through.

Balconies hold a special place in Indian homes. These open spaces have always been a part of our home interiors since time immemorial, when houses used to be designed with large courtyards, open lawns and stone sit outs and benches that ran through the entire outside area. With time and the lack of space, they began to be made smaller and restrictive in their space. Today most apartments and houses have balconies which are cherished, but not much effort put into their design and decor.

Indian balconies are healing and calming. Because of our Indian nature to connect with neighbours, comment on their well-being and be involved with other families, these balconies provide an avenue that facilitates such sharing. We get to enjoy nature and natural surroundings with loved ones. In apartments especially, these balconies serve as veritable canvases that can be decorated and designed the way we want.

Balconies look great if done well. Their sizes don’t matter and much can be done in limited spaces with little means. All it needs is imagination, a bunch of ideas and a definite plan of how everything can be put together seamlessly.

Balconies are often square or rectangular in shape. But there are round ones too. Some others have just an extension of a window ledge, while others are created by adjoining ones joined together. Irrespective of the balcony interiors and availability of space, below are a few great ideas to explore in Indian balcony designs.

Small Is Beautiful: Balcony Designs For Tiny Homes And Apartments

Small balconies are popular in apartments that go from 700 square feet and upwards. Often, they are added as a distraction and rarely as a space to relax and decorate. Although tiny, such balconies can still be styled without compromising on comfort or style. Add a chair or two and a small coffee table, line the walls with potted plants and transform it into a cosy space. You can even create this space as an exclusive bar or breakfast counter to gather with friends or family.

Rusticity is reminiscent of the days of old, when older, discarded furniture would be bought, redesigned and placed around for the family to gather together. Rusticity has an unfinished quality, textured, hewn and blends well into an old space. Furniture made of wood, designs that are simple and functional, a porch swing and pergola, wooden decks and stone pots complete the look and bring together the space beautifully. Complete the look with bright contrast cushions and your space is all ready for some indulgence.

Balconies have to be exorbitantly designed. They provide an alternate space to relax and unwind, sip on tea or a get- together with friends. The ambience has to be comfortable. One way of doing this is by recycled balcony designs. They are great to work with as DIY projects, can be redesigned and moved around whenever you wish to change the decor. Logs and tree stumps can be used as seating and tables, discarded rubber tyres wrapped with cloth as stools, plastic bottles reused as planter pots. There’s so much to work around when the theme is recycle and reuse.

Put The Limelight On Lighting

Stylish, eye-catching and using lights to set the mood are balconies where the emphasis is on lighting rather than decor and furniture.

Water bodies, stone walls and hidden lighting set into the balcony can transform the space especially during evenings when the sun goes down. These balconies need great design and careful planning to ensure they don’t become overwhelmed yet enhance the look and feel of the balcony space perfectly.
