6 Tips for Making the Most Out of Your Tampa Bay Balcony


Tampa Bay is one of the best places that you can live and take full advantage of an apartment balcony. If you have recently moved into an apartment with a balcony and you are looking for ways that you can get the most out of it, no matter how large or small it is, below are some handy tips that you can help your balcony reach its full potential.

Put a Swing In

You might think that swings are just for using in your yard or patio, or on your porch. But if you have an overhang on your balcony, there’s no reason why you can’t put a swing in as well. Of course, make sure that the landlord is okay with this by reading your lease or asking them. But it’s a great way to make your balcony very comfortable and relaxing.

Enjoy the Amazing Views

One thing that we are known for in Tampa Bay is our amazing scenery. If you live on a second floor or higher, enjoy your balcony by turning it into an outdoor area for dining. Just imagine sitting outside on your balcony and enjoying breakfast, lunch or dinner while enjoying the gorgeous views that you can see from your balcony.

Don’t Forget the Sun Protection

Along with gorgeous scenery, we’re also known for lots of sunshine in Tampa Bay. So, it’s a good idea to have some protection while you are enjoying those views. You can use a beach umbrella or something else so that you have a shady spot to sit in without worrying about getting sunburnt.

Be Space Savvy

When you are looking for furniture to use on your balcony, think about the amount of space you have and then choose your furniture. If you don’t have a large balcony, choosing an ottoman rather than a table is a good option. This way you have something that you can use for a table and, when it’s not being a table, you can use to put your feet up. Double duty is the way to go!

Light It Up

The nice, balmy breezes of our state mean that you don’t have to go inside just because the sun goes down. Hook up some string lights or other types of lights so that you can keep on enjoying your balcony even when the evening comes.

Use Candles

Another great way that you can light up your balcony and create a romantic atmosphere is to light it up with some candles. Lighting citronella candles will help keep the bugs away and create a relaxing and fun way to spend some time with your honey.
