Which is your favourite space to enjoy a steaming cup of tea or coffee with your favourite book? For most of us, that would be our balcony. Your balcony or private terrace is the perfect place to lean back and relax while enjoying some quality time with your loved ones. But it is essential to ensure that you and your family, particularly the little ones and elderly, are not at risk. For this, we have curated a list of balcony grill design ideas. Read on to get inspired!

Balcony Grill Design #1: Mesh

Child & pet-friendly mesh

It is important to find the right balance of charming and safe when it comes to your grill designs for your balcony. Especially, if you have young children or pets at home. In fact, one of the best ways to achieve this is by using mesh. Planters and pots, in combination with a striped rug and a comfortable chair, instantly transform the balcony into a picturesque delight!

Balcony Grill Design #2: Toughened Glass

See-through grills

Patterned wrought iron grills adds a rich ornate flavour to the outdoor space. In this #LivspaceHome, we have converted a large balcony into a space for socialising by adding a wicker sofa set, coffee table and a cabinet. The use of fortified glass here also allows for an unobstructed view of the surroundings.

Balcony Grill Design #3: Brick Wall

Rustic patio style

Convert your large balcony into a patio by using bricks as a parapet. Moreover, the combination of grey walls, metallic railings and glass walls lend a clean and contemporary look. Additionally, potted succulents and relaxed outdoor seating make this balcony the ideal place to dine al fresco, under the stars.

Balcony Grill Design #4: Wooden Panelling

A private space

Incorporating wooden paneling in your balcony will give you a serene space, tucked away from the concrete jungle. In fact, adding wall creepers and planters offer enhanced seclusion, while the use of wicker patio furniture adds a rustic look to the space. Throw in some floor cushions for a more laidback seating arrangement, or when you have company.

Balcony Grill Design #5: Collapsible Gate

Easy breezy style

If you are looking for grill patterns that are perfect for a small balcony, a collapsible grill is the way to go. Moreover, it creates the illusion of space with the unobstructed stream of natural light. Thus, from your morning tea to your evening nightcap, this balcony will quickly become your new favourite place!

Balcony Grill Design #6: Concrete

Sturdy and solid

Concrete is sturdy, durable, weather-proof and long lasting, making it a practical choice. For example, this white concrete wall is primped with green and pink foliage, while the steel railing in the background gives it a contemporary look, and the concrete blocks allow you to enjoy your balcony with complete privacy. 

Balcony Grill Design #7: Wooden Fencing

A country vibe

Wooden fencing brings the feeling of openness to your garden or yard. This modern grill design has been reinforced with a metal. The simplicity of the white fence is offset with green artificial turfing to create a serene setting, giving you the perfect escape from the humdrum of everyday life!

Balcony Grill Design #8: Raised Railing

Safety with a view

Raised railing as a modern grill elevates your space, literally! It opens up ways for you to intelligently use vertical space, and works especially well in a small balcony. We have incorporated a Bohemian theme in this #LivspaceHome, where we combined the metallic raised railing with outdoor furniture, colourful throw pillows and a small vase. The aerial view is the perfect companion for a relaxing cup of morning tea.

Balcony Grill Design #9: Contemporary

A great place to enjoy a cup of tea

A contemporary railing is a great option for modern and urban apartments. For instance, this voguish balcony grill perfectly offsets the wicker furniture and subtle colour palette. Also, notice the storage unit which is an effective space-saving option if you have a small apartment.

Balcony Grill Design #10: Vertical Garden

A breath of freshness

A great way to add a fun factor to your balcony grill design is via some fresh and green plants. If you lack the space, convert one side of your railing into a vertical garden, which looks amazing and is easy to manage. Some lovely vines and creepers will give your balcony railing an aesthetic look.

Balcony Grill Design #11: Minimalistic
