Your balcony can quickly change its appearance if you add a few touches of light. Thanks to your outdoor lighting, your balcony will adopt a completely different identity, a pleasant atmosphere. A rather simple way to take advantage of your small space in the open air. Indeed this environment can become for you a small stay outside, or a small corner for dinner late at night. Especially since after the winter period, I think we all try to enjoy the sun and the little outdoor space that we can benefit from.
Balconies are generally synonymous with small area. Despite everything, some are lucky enough to benefit from a rather generous exterior. This is why I have found several types of lighting that will highlight small and large balconies so that everyone finds their happiness. At the same time, I will give you some little tips to choose the lights according to the desired atmosphere.
1. Create an atmosphere with personalized lighting on your balcony
Having a balcony is a real plus. Even more so when you live in a big city such as Paris . So enjoying your little personal space outdoors is a real pleasure (at least Pomme loves it!). And I just like to enjoy my balcony day and night. Once the sun has gone down, small lights placed at the four corners of my terrace completely redesign my exterior. In fact, I would even go so far as to say that it is metamorphosed.
I would say that the highlight of my balcony is my Xanlite garland. Arranged in height, it creates a cozy atmosphere. Especially since I love the atmosphere of Parisian cafes, I find this decor a little festive at the same time.
2. Highlight your plants with beautiful lighting on your balcony
Why not enjoy your plants after dark? So you can have solar-powered lamps in your flowerpots and planters. At the foot of a flower bed, or a small palm tree, the light will bring relief to your plants and instantly transform your balcony as evening approaches. And as the expression goes: it will be day and night.
3. A pendant light like in the living room
In addition, to illuminate your dinners with friends, nothing better than a suspended light point. In addition, this type of lighting does not take up space on the ground and brings relief to the balcony. It is the ideal choice for small areas.
However, not everyone has an electrical installation allowing them to take advantage of this type of lighting. But don’t panic, I have the solution: rechargeable outdoor pendant lights. So I don’t want to hear any more excuses: everyone has the possibility of finding a luminaire adapted to their space.
4. Outdoor aluminum lamp
Little news in the world of garden lighting. The outdoor aluminum lamp is placed in the center of the table, hangs from a tree using its strap or is fixed to the wall like a wall lamp. It’s up to you to define its ideal location or vary it depending on the occasion!
5. A floor lamp for a characterful exterior
As I specifically told you, we bring the interior furniture out onto the balcony. And this even for the lamppost. For those who want to add a touch of personality to their exterior, this type of light is for you. Especially since this model is more imposing on a balcony, and dresses the latter in its entirety. In addition, you will need to have a large enough space to enjoy such a lamp.
6. A table lamp to light up your dinners
For a more subtle and discreet but just as charming lighting, the table lamp gives off this effect that I adore. Thus, arranged on the garden table, or on a coffee table, it illuminates specific points on your balcony. Indeed, it delimits the lighting by creating small intimate corners revolving around it.
7. Combine business with pleasure with connected lighting on your balcony
Take advantage of quality and connected lighting outdoors. To accompany your summer evenings, connected lighting can change the atmosphere of your exterior depending on the occasion. So you will only have to control your lamps from your smartphone or your Amazon voice assistant . For my part, I have already fallen for the Philips Hue brand for a long time. Whether colorful or neutral lamps with white and yellow tints, Philips Hue lighting is with you to find the perfect mood.
