Most homes in Malaysia comes with a balcony, and it is often only used as a laundry space to dry clothes or perhaps a storage space.
But instead of keeping it as a laundry or storage space, why not close it up and create a whole new space in your home? The possibilities are endless, from a herb garden, to a cool lounge area where you can relax, to a study area for your home office.
Landed property is ideal for closing up the balcony, for example in a two storey semi-d, terrace or a bungalow house. However, if you live in a strata title apartment or condo, there will be strict rules concerning balcony renovations, so please check first.
Here are some great examples of glass-covered balconies that we have found for you to take inspiration from! (yes we know that some of the images look like overseas condos, but we hope they give you some ideas nonetheless)
