At last I feel at home on my balcony now. Before I started this transformation, our balcony was never really used. Very bad, I thought to myself, something urgently needs to change. The floor actually  needed a new touch the most. On the website of IKEA then I found great floor tiles.




But before I can show you the result, I have to show you the before picture and the way to the new beautiful balcony (which is now one of the nicest in the neighborhood).



Yes, unfortunately a very bleak sight offers the fore-image. Before I redesigned the balcony, he was cleaned by my boyfriend with a pressure washer. Since I live in an older house, not all traces of the time were removable.



After thoroughly wiping the floor again, it was time to get to work. First I laid floor tiles RUNNEN from IKEA – on the website of IKEA you will find a guide, with which you can calculate how many packages of floor tiles you need for your balcony or garden. The bottom plates can be easily clicked in each other. First I laid out the entire floor with the plates.



Since the bottom plates left margins, we sawed the remaining parts with a jigsaw. Even just after laying the floor, the balcony looked a lot nicer. Then we assembled the ASKHOLMEN table and set up the matching folding chairs. Then afterwards the plant stand SALLADSKÅL had to be assembled and screwed on to the wall.



Then I placed all flowers and herbs. At IKEA I found this cute citrus tree and ivy. Also the beautiful lavendar bush and the rosemary.



I even found my new olive tree at IKEA. Matching with planters SOCKER and a plant stand SOMMAR 2018. The greening of the balcony beautifies this again tremendously. It is important to check whether the plants are suitable for outdoors and what preferences – much or little sun – they have.



Also textiles may not be missing on the balcony. The seat cushions HÅLLÖ. ensure comfortable sitting. On balmy summer evenings, a pretty plaid ike this one is just the right choice. And why not adding a carpet on the balcony?



Now, of course, I’m curious about your opinion? How do you like my new balcony?

    Hi, would the SALLADSKÅL free stand ok, without being against a wall?
