6. Decorative metal grillesHow about creating an outdoor enclosure with decorative metal grilles that can offer both shade and privacy to the balcony? In this example, the decorative grilles on the flooring, ceiling and railing form a dominant feature of the balcony and add to the security of the home. However, one drawback of creating an enclosure with laser-cut grilles is that the balcony may feel claustrophobic.
…or grillesSimilarly, instead of a blind, consider installing a partial or full grille. Here, the grille helps enclose the balcony, give it an intriguing design flair and even offers itself as a place to hang plants and lights.Looking for a professional to design your interiors?

Continuous railingA really great idea for balcony gardens is to use a decorative metal grill that doubles as a railing and continues upwards to transform into a pergola. This creates a homogeneous look and integrates all the aspects of the small balcony garden.Pictured here, the three planes (of flooring, railing and ceiling) are integrated with a metal grill.
1. Geometric popThis balcony by Linear Concepts doesn’t need sunshine to pop with cheer. The orange and yellow here promise to brighten even the dullest day. Enclosed by a screen that locks an interconnected geometric design, the space exudes a contemporary vibe. See how the hanging planters offer bursts of colour as they sing to the colour palette created by the swing and wicker furniture. The balcony doubles as a sheltered sun room.
6. Geometric lattices to set a moodThe detailed lattice work that envelopes the balcony here can easily be used for large windows for an equally dynamic look. The filtered sunshine, coupled with the swing and chairs, transforms this balcony into a sunroom.
