The balcony in standard apartments has a limitedArea, so it is difficult to effectively use it without performing a labor-intensive and expensive re-planning, which also requires the permission of the architect, or another specialist. That's why, most people turn the balcony into a kind of pantry, a smoking room or a dryer for laundry items. Such use in most cases is impractical and designers in cooperation with the builders have repeatedly proved this by implementing a more successful design of the balcony in the apartment in various ways. These methods, or rather the options for practical use of the balcony, we will consider below. We hope that one of the examples cited will inspire you to a cardinal reworking of the balcony. Study. On a well-insulated balcony it is quite possible to create a small office and move there, a computer hindering at home and a cabinet with working materials. The main thing is that the balcony was not on the first floor, otherwise the thieves will be too tempted to knock out the window and borrow expensive computer equipment. The advantage of a working classroom on the balcony is privacy, none of the household will interfere with concentrating on work. On the other hand, the sun hitting the window and street noise can interfere, so you need to use good double-glazed windows and, if possible, blinds. Overview of balcony workplaces we'll start with a budget option, which practically does not require additional investment, you just need to glaze the balcony and pick up a suitable size table. Another simple, but much more expensive option. To implement it, you will have to perform the cosmetics of the balcony, plus a little fantasy when installing the table. More expensive and interesting option. Apparently an improvised cabinet is made on the balcony from the kitchen, but most importantly, that it does not completely close the window, and therefore allows you to enter the room in the sunlight. More expensive option, implyingRedevelopment of the apartment (increasing windows) and expensive decoration of the balcony. Looks nice, but not very practical, too much free space is wasted. The office is on the loggia, or on a considerably expanded balcony. Very nice and apparently comfortable. And the last, one of the cutest options. 2. Workshop. A workshop on a balcony is often the only way to do something without disturbing the household and being subjected to constant reproaches. In addition, on the balcony you can perform work related to the use of caustic, as well as highly smelling substances and materials, which if not wreaked havoc, then something will probably spoil. The balcony is easier to air and can be adapted, in contrast to the living room. The first example is a typical male workshop on the balcony. It's cramped, of course, but it's better than nothing. The second example - a workshop for women, decorated in a slightly warmer colors and a little neater. It's even narrower, but you can fit. Next, another workshop with unimaginable capacity. For complete justice, another workshop for sewing. Well, finally, we present the main masterpiece. Apparently, the workshops on the balconies do not differspecial care and beauty, but they do not need it, because the work does not mean perfect purity. And finally, a video about the manufacture of glass jewelry on the balcony. Read about it. 3. Rest area. If the sun periodically looks at the balcony of the sun and if it opens with a more or less decent appearance, you can on the balcony to realize a corner for relaxation with a table and chairs. Believe me, drinking coffee or tea on the balcony in the summer, meeting the dawn is an indescribable feeling that allows not only to wake up quickly, but also to gain positive, at least for the next 5-6 hours. By the way the decoration of the balcony in the apartment in the form of a recreation area is very popular, but also very expensive. We look and silently envy?
