Simple balcony makeover

That drab concrete balcony is often the last area to be addressed in any apartment makeover. Maybe itís just too small to justify a procession of tradespersons traipsing through the apartment day after day to lay ceramic or terracotta tiles, grout them and then polish them. Maybe you live in a rental property and donít want to spent money on something you canít take with you, but really want to brighten up that valuable exterior space.

Perhaps the best and easiest solution is to install DIY decking tiles. These tiles are laid directly on the existing balcony without requiring any surface preparation. The tiles just click together without needing any adhesives, screws etc. You may need to cut some tiles to fit around pipes or to fit flush against the balcony wall, but all thatís required is a handsaw or jigsaw. And as the tiles are constructed with a special mesh base, water drains away quickly and easily.

Some manufacturers have more than one style of tile so you can mix and match to make your own unique pattern. If you get tired of one pattern, just lift up the tiles and move them around to make another.

To keep the attractive wood colour, you will need to apply a decking oil at regular intervals, once or twice a yearComputer Technology Articles, but this is small price to pay for the benefit of an attractive wood balcony.

To further enhance the balcony you could leave out a few tiles and fill the gaps with some funky polished stones or maybe some chunky bark nuggets. And of course some bushy plants in attractive pots team exceptionally well with any wood deck.
