Balco wishes everyone a happy Easter – three spring tips for your balcony

Balco wishes everyone a happy Easter! In Balco’s Easter eggs you will find three tips on how to get your balcony ready for the warmer days ahead.

Put color on your balcony and mix different textures

Go for the addition of colorful details such as patterned and colorful pots for a lovely color click on the balcony. Choose details with different textures to renew without having to replace all of the interior on the balcony.

Create a green oasis

Another effective way to get the balcony ready for spring and summer is to plant different kind of plants. Mix green and colorful plants to easily create interesting contrasts. If you have a balcony with a lot of surface, you can use pallet collars to grow both flowers and spices (do not forget to protect the bottom so that the floor or balcony mat is destroyed). Do you have a balcony of the smaller kind? Take advantage of the height instead. Stack wooden boxes at the height so you can put plants both in and on top of the box to create greenery at different levels on the balcony. Another trick is to acquire a flower staircase or inflorescence with room for several pots. Do you have children or pets? Remember not to staple the boxes too high so they become possible to climb on.

Light up the summer evenings

Even though the summer usually offers bright summer evenings, it may be good to have light sources on the balcony. Balco likes the lamps that have solar cells a little extra, these are nicer to the environment and the electricity bill. Another plus is that these lamps do not carry as much fire hazard as candles. If you have an open balcony, you can use a light loop that you simply wrap around the balcony railing.

Why do we perform impact tests?

Balco’s development department regularly perform safety tests on our products to ensure the appropriate industry criteria is met.

At Balco we want our customers to feel safe when they choose Balco’s Balconies. We may be crazy about balconies but we’re serious about keeping our customers safe. Want to know more about how and why we test our products? Watch the video clip below and see it in action.
