5. Outdoor spaceAlfresco space, whether it’s in the form of a garden, courtyard or balcony, is must-have feature in any forever home. The fresh air and natural light is good for your health and wellbeing, plus access to an outdoor area provides somewhere for children or grandchildren to play, and a spot to indulge in healthy activities such as gardening.
2. Bring in wall storageThe wall is often the most underused part of the balcony. Have it pull some heavy duty by installing a storage device. An open shelving display, like the one pictured, can be a great way to elevate your balcony aesthetic. If you do resort to an open storage system, however, make sure to reserve it for sturdy, wind-proof items that aren’t susceptible to weather damage.

Use walls Privacy walls along tight urban balconies can make the space feel confining. Here a privacy wall from the neighbouring balcony has been outfitted to add interest via shelves and plant boxes. Objects and plants can be added to bring in colour, shapes and pattern, making the wall a design asset.
