 Private balcony in Summer - How can I make my balcony more private?

There are several easy and creative ways to turn a balcony into your own secluded oasis. One way is to add privacy screens or curtains to block out any unwanted views. Another option is to use plants to create a natural barrier between you and your neighbours. You can also install a retractable awning or shade sail to create more privacy and shade on your balcony.

3 Ways to Improve Balcony Privacy 

1. Install Privacy Screens or Curtains

Choose from a variety of styles and materials, such as bamboo, fabric, or metal, to add privacy and style to your balcony. Screens can be custom-sized for your needs and can even enhance the aesthetics of your space.  

2. Hang & Grow Plants

From cascading ivy to fragrant flower baskets, hanging and trailing plants add privacy and beauty to your balcony. Consider adding vines, bushy flowering plants, or small potted trees.  

3. Add a Retractable Awning or Shade Sail

Not only do they offer protection from the sun, but these outdoor accessories can also provide more privacy on your balcony. You can also easily store them away when not in use.
