1. Evaluate the space available on your balcony

First of all, evaluate the size and available space on your balcony. Measure the area where you want to place the planters to ensure you choose appropriate sizes and dimensions that will fit perfectly without cluttering your living space.

In fact, it is better not to suffocate the space, so as not to obtain an unlivable jungle effect. At the same time, however, consider that pot holders can help you create privacy , with the right plants, so arrange them in a clever way.

2. Choose durable outdoor materials

Consider that planters are exposed to different climatic conditions: if your balcony is exposed to the sun, wind or rain, it is important to opt for weather-resistant materials such as metal which guarantees greater durability over time.

3. Plan the distribution of plants on the terrace

Plan in advance which plants you want to grow and how to distribute them in the planters. Be sure to consider the light and space needs of different plant varieties to ensure their healthy and lush growth. Create mixes between tall and short plants. Think about flowering if you want to add color. Get advice from an expert!

Finally, don't forget to consider the color of the planters. Choose shades that harmonize with the color of the plants you intend to grow and that add a touch of liveliness and cheerfulness to your terrace. Also consider the color of your home's facade, window frames and exterior flooring.

Our advice is to choose two colors for your planters in order to alternate them and create a contrast: for example fossil green and olive green . Or vanilla and cinnamon .

However, if the balcony is very small, you can choose just one shade.

With the right balcony planters you can create a relaxing and pleasant environment in which to spend time.
