Bedroom balcony extension ideas

November 21, 2019

You have to admit: having a bedroom that has a balcony or terrace is a wonderful privilege and luxurious addition to any bedroom. Imagine what it would be like to wake up, then open the balcony door and breathe in the fresh morning air.

The balcony also offers other benefits, this time associated with interior décor. Considered an extension of the room itself, the balcony makes the bedroom feel open, spacious and airy. As for how you will decorate this space, there are several options. Opening the bedroom with a balcony provides an exceptional opportunity to use natural glazing to bring natural light into the room and enjoy it. Enhance the effect of views and landscapes with floor-to-ceiling glass walls to separate the balcony from the bedroom and enjoy the views without having to go outside. However, there is another option: turn the balcony into a small oasis and fill it with fresh herbs and bold colours. It can be a space that is completely different from your bedroom. There are many options and many details that deserve to be mentioned, but a good way to illustrate all these ideas is to use examples. The best way is just your imagination and ideas.

Installing a balcony

First of all, let's emphasize - you will need a permit to plan the installation of a balcony on your home. This may sound daunting, but with a good architect who will be your planning agent, it can be quite a painless process as they will be the best to design and submit the plans that your local authority must approve.

Planning officers ask specific questions when evaluating, so it might be a good idea to think of the following:

• aesthetics - does the planned balcony fit in with the rest of your home visually?

• neighbours - will your balcony interfere with their privacy?

• light - will the balcony affect any of your premises or part of the yard to become dark?

• fall protection - You must install a guard rail that prevents a 100mm diameter ball from passing through any opening.

It is also interesting to note that a balcony in the bedroom adds about 25% of the extra value to your home.

Here are just a few of the ideas for decorating a bedroom with a balcony that may serve as inspiration when you decide to decorate this space yourself:

White never goes out of style. This beautiful bedroom looks even more spacious and airy due to the glazed white balcony doors, and the glass fence on the balcony adds to the impression of width.

Bedroom in the converted attic - great idea. If you still have space for the balcony, you will wake up every day cheerful and fresh because the view from this height cannot fail.

Each design can find similar to itself in the patio furniture. In this bedroom, the style of furniture for the room and the terrace blend in completely, so that the terrace looks like a natural extension of the room. When upgrading your balcony, you need to be careful about how the new floor space will blend into your interior. The similar colour and pattern of the flooring contribute significantly to the impression of the unity of the two areas.

This example shows how balconies not only have to float outside the home but creating another access point in the garden can be a great way to connect your bedroom to the yard. This way you will create the perfect spot to watch the sunrise as soon as you open your eyes.

Also, consider the idea of the all-around balcony if the design of your house allows it, and you will not regret it.

This forest cottage is perhaps the best display of how you can enjoy sitting on your patio at all times of the day and evening. Just look at this comfort and convenience!
