5 Fun Things You Can Do On a Balcony

It’s fair to say that most people will agree that balconies are great for a wide variety of reasons. They can be a place of drama and relaxation, depending on your needs and mood. Now is the perfect time to have a balcony installed by Salop Glass. But what can you do on a balcony?

To answer this question, we’ve put together this article. We hope you like our ideas, and if you have any of your own comment below – we’d love to hear from you!

5 Fun Things To Do On A Balcony 

Creating A New Green Space

A balcony isn’t necessarily the first thing you associate with greenery – after all it is part of your home. However, creating a green space on your balcony is a great way of transforming your home and adding a new layer of freshness to your indoor space. As well as potted plants, you can grow vines along the top of the bannister. This will create a totally unique vibe that your friends and family are sure to love. 


The next great thing you can do from a balcony is going stargazing in the winter. Stargazing is a great activity, whether you’re doing it solo or with your loved ones; it allows you to step away from the hustle and bustle of your life for a while and just admire the world around you. But there is one big problem with stargazing in the United Kingdom: it’s cold. 

Yes, because stargazing can only really be done in the winter months, you will have to trade off an exploration of the cosmos with coldness and possibly frostbite. Luckily, however, having a balcony installed in your home helps to negate this problem. As a result, you’re free to explore the universe at your leisure. 

And what could be better than that?

Have a Romantic Dinner

The balcony has been associated with romance since the years of Shakespeare, so there’s no reason why you can’t bring some of that fantastic energy to your own relationship. 

The fact of the matter is that a balcony is a great spot for a romantic dinner. For one, the size of most balconies inspires intimacy like few spaces within the home. Secondly, having a meal on a balcony is a completely unique experience compared to eating in the dining room or the living room. 

Create a Reading Nook 

Having a specific reading space in your home is a real luxury for a book lover. It gives you the opportunity to just fall into a book in a way that just isn’t possible in a room that is used for something else. A balcony is a great place to have such a space for the sole reason that a balcony is a half-way point between the comfort of your home and the fresh feeling that only comes from going outside.

Work From Home in a Fun Way

Our final recommendation for your balcony is one that has been truer these past few years than it has ever been. For the same reason that a balcony is a great place to read, it’s also a great place to work if you find yourself working from home, particularly in the summer when you don’t have to worry about putting up a parasol. Not only is it relaxing and good for your overall mental health, but it also gives you an opportunity to get some fresh air.
