A simple design using a light coloured stain can really make your furniture and plants stand out.

Simple White Boards On A Spanish Balcony

Southern Europeans really like to dress up their balconies because they comprise a large part of their living and enjoyment space.  In this case, they've used a very simple design with a translucent stain to allow the grain to show through.

We did a similar job last year for a client who had been living in Germany for a number of years.   When you add in a few dark pieces of furniture and some colour with plants and vases, you can really turn a simple balcony into a stylish, stunning, spot.

The nice thing about whiter boards is they don't show dirt as much and as they fade, it is hardly noticeable.


Don't always think wood stain for your balcony. This is a nice example from Sweden that brings out the white in our lives!

The Swedes know how to dress up a small balcony and make it chic!

This is a lovely design that incorporates a couple of small, white chairs and table on top of white deck boards.  All decks do not have to be wood coloured or stained - paint is a great idea as well.

The white contrast beautifully with the black railings and makes for a cozy nook.
