Wide boards can create a very sophisticated look for any balcony.

Indian Apartment Wide Board Balcony

A nice, straightforward, wide board balcony from our line of 15 Engaging Asian Balconies.  This apartment in India contrast some wide boards with porcelain tiles on the inside of the apartment to create a very sophisticated look.

A wide board look can be achieved with wood of course, but also with different tiles.  Many porcelain tiles are now manufactured with a faux wood look that is very impressive.  Each of the tiles has a different grain, colour and can create a fabulous look for a floor.

In this example, the boards are running perpendicular from the doors, making the balcony look much wider than it is.  Add a couple of chairs, a simple table and a bit of greenery and you have a beautiful step out balcony.  A nice job!

A simple design made of porcelain tiles makes this condo balcony a full extension of the living space.

Wide Porcelain Tiles

These wide porcelain tiles are from a great article on engaging Asian balconies that we love.

This style could also be accomplished with wide, wooden panels but the tiles are so nice and clean that they are my favourite option.

In Toronto you're usually not allowed to change the wall colour or put up stone (who invented that stupid rule!) but you can put up a hanging or something else that gives you a more balanced look than grey concrete.

I like the two sizes of tile and the simplicity of the design.  Beautiful.

Lots of great inspiration from the folks in Asia in how to make a small balcony beautiful!

Grass With White Stones Balcony

Another in our series of beautiful balconies, this grass with white stones balcony is from 15 Engaging Asian Balcony Designs That Will Inspire You.

We have lots of beautiful artificial grass we can now use that is nothing like the old turf.  It last a long time and gives you a cushy feel underneath the feet.

In this design they also use some nice dark wood (which would also be nice as flooring) all around and together with the grass, makes the white stones really stand out. Lots of inspiration to be gathered from Asia!
