Finishing loggias and balconies, how the premises differ
Many people believe that the loggia and the balcony are synonymous concepts, but this is fundamentally a wrong statement. According to primary sources, the concept of "balcony" stands for protrusion, and "loggia" in translation from Italian means "room". By and large, most of the balconies, especially in the apartments of the old stock, have almost the same size. All of them are characterized by a rectangular shape, and in rare cases their area exceeds 3-4 m². The loggia, depending on the project, can have any shape and area, and very often, to increase the living area of an apartment, the premises are combined with the main territory.
It is interesting! The main difference between one room and another is that the balcony always protrudes beyond the facade of the building, while the loggia is located in the same plane with the outer wall.
If you look at photos of balconies, loggias, you can pay attention to the fact that the balcony is distinguished by a hinged device, and it is for this reason that its bearing capacity is limited. This feature must also be taken into account when choosing materials for decoration, so as not to greatly overload the structure. In addition to the built-in balcony, there are also attached ones, the bearing capacity of which is determined by the type of supports.
The premises differ in both configuration and location. Balconies are also divided into closed and open (the choice depends on the preferences of the owners). The most common method of adding a structure is considered to be the use of cantilever beams that go into the structure, and it is on these beams that the floor is then mounted.
In brick buildings, a cantilever slab is used to install a balcony, secured with reinforced concrete columns and brackets. With this method of installation, the room can have any area and configuration, but installation is possible no higher than the second floor. Other types of balcony structures are also distinguished:
- Attached. They are mounted on side supports, and front stands are used for better support.
- Hinged. They are hung using special fasteners installed on the facade.
Loggias are also divided into open and closed. Regardless of the type of room, in any case, it is recommended to carry out wall insulation. At the same time, it is better when external wall insulation is carried out, which does not take away the useful area inside the room. As for the choice of materials for finishing the balconies inside, here you can use the same options as for repairing the rest of the premises in the apartment. The most common and cheapest way is to clad the balcony with clapboard, which can be wooden or plastic. Clinker tiles and decorative stone are also popular. Many people prefer to use a combination of materials to create a more attractive appearance.
How to get started on the balcony: photos showing interesting design ideas
Where to start finishing the balcony? It depends on the functions assigned to the premises. The structure that you want to make a continuation of the living room should be designed in accordance with the overall design of the room. In the event that it is not planned to make redevelopment, you can think over an unusual decor and dilute the interior with original accessories. If you look at the photos of finishing the balconies inside with your own hands, you will notice that the following material options are most often used:
- ceramic tile;
- imitation of natural stone;
- wood upholstery;
- use of ornate carving.
Helpful advice! Even the simplest version of balcony cladding can be successfully supplemented with eye-catching blinds, Roman blinds or other ways to decorate a window opening.
The choice of the finishing option for the premises is considered one of the most important stages of the repair on the loggia or balcony, which will subsequently determine the appearance of the room. Before making a balcony in an apartment, you should choose the right building materials, taking into account the peculiarities of the indoor climate. It is important to understand that carrying out insulation work can minimize the impact of temperature extremes occurring outside.
In any case, when choosing materials for cladding, preference should be given to moisture-resistant raw materials that can easily tolerate an increase or decrease in temperature and are fireproof. The attractive appearance of the cladding is also important. To create a stylish balcony, you need to pay attention to the quality and attractiveness of the material, choose the options that are most suitable for the balcony decoration.
Before you arrange an open or closed balcony, you should determine if there is an opportunity and desire to perform insulation, replace old double-glazed windows with modern ones, install new doors. All these activities must be done before finishing the finish, so as not to damage the finished surfaces.
It is interesting! The balconies were originally intended to be used as a security measure against fire, so that in an emergency it would be easier to evacuate a person from an apartment building.
How to start decorating balconies with your own hands: step by step instructions
The choice of interior decoration option depends on the individual wishes of the owners and the functional purpose of the premises. Increasingly, apartment owners are moving away from the banal use of a balcony as a storage for unnecessary things, preferring more sophisticated options. Basically, the space is equipped for spending evenings in a pleasant company.
Before you start choosing a decorative surface coating, you should finally decide on the purpose of the space. It is necessary to decide whether it will be used for short-term exits in order to contemplate the weather and the situation on the street, or whether it is planned to equip a full-fledged room here that can be used all year round.
For the permanent use of the premises, it is important to perform high-quality insulation. In this case, the best option is considered to be a complete dismantling of the fences with their subsequent replacement with a full-fledged wall made of bricks or foam concrete blocks. In addition, you should inspect the floor slabs, which are located in the lower and upper parts. If concrete peeling or partial destruction is observed, repair work with reinforced waterproofing will be required, especially when the balcony is on the upper floor.
In the case of repairs in an old house, most likely, you will have to tinker with the stove on which the floor is equipped. If problems are found, you will have to completely redo the fill. Additionally, when carrying out these works, it is recommended to immediately lay a warm floor. Other activities that should be performed before finishing finishing work begins:
What cladding options are there? Requirements for interior decoration. Wall, ceiling and floor decoration. How to insulate the balcony? External cladding.
- Check the quality of the installed window and door blocks. If you are not sure about the quality and reliability, it is better to immediately replace them with new ones.
- Think over the arrangement of furniture and appliances in order to prepare the wiring and install the required number of outlets.
- Plan the lighting and determine in advance the mounting locations for the switches.
Helpful advice! No matter how it is planned to operate the premises, in any case, it is recommended to insulate it. Additional insulation will help to avoid problems with condensation, which will cause the growth of fungus. Many are interested in the question of what is the best way to decorate the balcony. Most builders advise expanded polystyrene, expanded polystyrene or mineral wool.
Decoration of balconies inside: photos of plastered and painted rooms
Plaster is considered the simplest and cheapest finish inside the balcony. In addition to the low price, the material has other advantages:
- high speed of surface treatment;
- wide distribution of building materials and the ability to purchase at any point of sale;
- short drying time;
- lack of unpleasant odor during work;
- the ability to select the optimal color of the coating using the color scheme;
- finishing without experience of interior finishing works;
- attractive surface appearance.
Among the disadvantages is the fact that the plaster is applied mainly in 2-3 layers. Due to the presence of lime in the composition, the material is prone to absorbing dust, as a result of which the coating is recommended to be renewed annually, and if the windows face a busy avenue or an active construction site, then 2 times a year.
Another low-cost finish on the balcony inside is paint, which is also easy to apply without special skills or experience. At the same time, it is considered an advantage that you can paint any surface options, including finishing layers. When buying paint, it is important to ensure that it meets certain criteria, including:
- ecological cleanliness of the composition, especially if the room is used often;
- resistance to humidity and temperature extremes;
- lack of burnout and cracking under the influence of sunlight;
- the material should not impede air circulation and must be vapor-permeable.
When buying, you should pay attention to the presence of antibacterial substances in the composition. Most often, acrylic paints are chosen for finishing balconies, which are easy to apply, retain an attractive appearance for a long time and do not harm others. Silicone paint is vapor-permeable, but until it dries, it gives off an unpleasant odor. Silicate paints based on water glass are considered the most durable. The least stable are water-based solutions, which, if used, are only used to decorate ceilings.
It is not so important what to make the walls on the balcony from - it would be best to carry out high-quality surface preparation, which will create a reliable basis for any material. The adhered puttying technology will help not only to level the surfaces, but also to give them a complete appearance. After such work, both paint and plaster will fit well.
If the balcony is warm, a dry mixture for interior cladding is taken for work. For an unglazed open version, it is better to immediately buy material intended for exterior facade processing. Taking these factors into account, paint is also selected. Finishing the balcony with plaster will be inexpensive, because mainly the material is a cement-sand mixture. If the walls are processed correctly and in compliance with technology, the need for major repairs will disappear for many years. For example, topcoated latex and water-based paints are designed for multiple wash cycles.
Features of pasting walls with wallpaper: photos of beautiful finishes inside the balcony
Wallpaper for wall decoration is recommended to be used only if the room temperature is constantly maintained inside the room, because with its frequent jumps and high humidity, it is possible to peel off the sheets, especially for cheap paper wallpaper.
It is interesting! On numerous photos of the decoration of a small balcony inside, decoration with wallpaper can be found quite often. Such popularity is due to the fact that there is a large selection of both colors and textures. In addition, wallpaper does not take away useful space from the room, as is the case with cladding with various panel options.
When buying wallpaper, it should be borne in mind that they should be combined with the walls of the adjoining room.In some cases, the same finish is used to visually increase the area in adjacent rooms. If you want, on the contrary, to highlight the balcony space, it is recommended to paste over the walls with unusual decorative photo wallpapers. The main thing is to be careful with the choice of the pattern, especially in a small room, so as not to visually reduce it in volume. The optimal design options are shown in the photo of finishes inside small balconies.
In order for the wallpaper to stick well to the surface, it must be well prepared - dried and leveled. A significant advantage of the material can be considered the ability to independently perform work. Of the minuses, some distinguish the high cost of high-quality materials and the likelihood of color fading with constant exposure to ultraviolet radiation. Especially the loss of color will be visible if the same wallpaper is pasted on the walls in the adjacent room.
A more fashionable and modern finish is considered to be liquid wallpaper, which is also called "silk plaster". In addition to its attractive appearance, the material has other advantages:
- the ability to hide small irregularities and blemishes on the surface of the walls that remained after putty;
- good sound and noise insulation characteristics;
- the presence in the composition of only natural components from cotton, silk or cellulose;
- good air throughput, which is important for the organization of the correct microclimate;
- the possibility of self-preparation of the mixture or the purchase of a ready-made solution;
- no need to use glue, because the adhesive component is already part of the solution;
- long-term color retention, no burnout and destruction;
- easy dismantling without the use of special tools.
Liquid wallpaper is applied on a dried primer, the surface of the walls dries completely and hardens a day after application. After that, it is recommended to carry out treatment with an acrylic finishing compound so that the surface becomes smooth and does not absorb dust. After that, it is permissible to clean the walls from time to time with ordinary soapy water.
Lined balconies: various interior options
Finishing the balcony inside with clapboard (photo - confirmation) is considered a universal option for cladding rooms. In this case, the material is used for both internal and external surfaces. There are various options for panels, which differ in the type of material used for production, as well as the method of connection and size.
It is interesting! The lining is a cladding board equipped with a tenon-groove connection, which greatly simplifies installation, and also eliminates the appearance of seams, irregularities, cracks and cracks.
Most often, the balcony is finished inside with a clapboard made of wood or plastic, because it is these materials that are characterized by universal physical and consumer qualities. In addition to these options, fiberboards, the so-called MDF panels, are also popular.
MDF has one significant drawback - fragility, which must be taken into account during installation. It is better for fasteners in this case to use not nails that require hammering, but self-tapping screws that can be carefully screwed in without damaging the material. With neat execution, trimming loggias with panels will look attractive and will last for a long period.
Wooden lining is considered very warm and attractive.Various photos of finishing the balcony inside with wooden siding show that the cladded room looks cozy at home. The material is also practical: it is able to withstand various negative influences. To make the room look neat for a long time, when buying, you should give preference to a high-quality board treated with special fire-fighting, antifungal, anti-mite and antiseptic mixtures that protect the tree from destruction.
It is important to buy perfectly dry wood panels. If they are even slightly damp, then, most likely, the process of absorbing moisture from the environment will continue, followed by swelling, which may cause the masonry to move out. Studying the photo of decorating the balcony inside with wood, you can get interesting ideas and implement your favorite options at home. The main characteristics of wooden lining:
- the material is considered environmentally friendly and safe;
- retains heat well;
- has good sound insulation properties;
- it has a rather high cost;
- veneering requires a significant amount of time and effort.
Photo of balconies lined with plastic clapboard: material features
More affordable panels for finishing the balcony inside are plastic, which are much cheaper than wooden ones. Another advantage of plastic is simplified installation, as well as the fact that the material tolerates temperature extremes and exposure to moisture well, so they do not need to be treated with any solutions or varnished. On the Internet you can find a large number of photos of balconies finishes inside with plastic panels, decorated in various colors. Often there are options that imitate a variety of surfaces. The most popular panels copy the following materials:
- a natural stone;
In the photo of the balcony finishes with plastic, you can find such unusual options as decoration using multi-colored sheets. Of course, the use of several colors will look unusual and bright, but when choosing shades, you need to make sure that they not only go well with each other, but also match the surrounding interior. It is not difficult to decorate the balcony with plastic panels inside with your own hands. This does not require the purchase of special tools, even the most basic skills in carrying out repairs are enough.
Of the minuses of finishing with plastic clapboard, the poor ability of the material to pass air is distinguished, which negatively affects the microclimate of the room. If you purchase low-quality material, over time, color loss and yellowing of the elements are possible. Another disadvantage is the low ability of plastic to retain heat.
Helpful advice! When buying plastic panels, you should inquire about heat resistance indicators, as well as clarify the features of operation. Some material options, with constant exposure to heat, begin not only to fade, but also to deform.
When buying panels, you need to carefully study their composition, because in the production of cheap panels, low-quality materials are used that, when heated, can release toxic substances that have a negative effect on the health of others.
Facing panels and MDF lining: photos of balconies
MDF lining is a cross between the two finishes described above. The material itself is sawdust and fibers compressed at high temperatures.To give smoothness and attractive gloss, the surface of the panels is additionally covered with a polyvinyl chloride film, which, like plastic, is capable of simulating various materials. In the photo of the cladding of balconies with clapboard made of MDF, options for a tree or natural stone look attractive.
In appearance, such panels are absolutely not inferior to natural material, but they are much cheaper. However, one must also take into account the disadvantages of the material, which include:
- inability to use on an open balcony or loggia;
- fragility of the top layer, which is easily damaged by mechanical stress;
- inability to tolerate high temperatures;
- swelling when moisture penetrates under the film due to its damage or peeling off.
It is important to take into account the strong flammability of the material when finishing the balcony with MDF-clapboard, therefore, when wiring, all cables should be laid in a special corrugation. In general, the cladding looks modern and attractive, and dirt can be easily removed with a simple soap solution and a soft cloth.
Cladding panels are considered convenient for installation material, because they are large in size. However, to install them, you will first have to make a frame on the walls. The advantage of installing the frame system is the absence of the need for perfect alignment of surfaces.
Photos of the trim panels inside the balconies clearly demonstrate that they can be used not only for wall decoration, but also for the ceiling. In general, the material is considered a budget cladding option, because the panels, due to their large size, will require a small amount. Individual sheets can be cut and adjusted to fit any parameters of a loggia or balcony.
The use of plastic sandwich panels and aluminum panels: photos of balconies inside
Plastic sandwich panel is an advanced multi-sheet PVC material with high price and high quality. The space between the two sheets is filled with thermal insulation foam, which, in addition to its attractive appearance, provides good insulation. Among the consumer qualities of the material, the following advantages stand out:
- the ability to resist mechanical damage;
- lack of color fading in the sun;
- not susceptible to moisture absorption.
Helpful information! Due to the fact that the sheets are a multi-layer composition, it is not required to carry out additional work on hydro and vapor barrier.
A significant disadvantage of the panels can be considered a rather laborious installation, because the sheets are quite heavy and large. The size of each element is 3x1.5 m.Due to the fact that the base is extruded polystyrene foam, covered with plastic for greater strength, the use of the material has the following positive aspects:
- long service life;
- tight fit of the panels to each other thanks to the “thorn-groove” system;
- flat and smooth surface (no visible gaps and seams);
- the possibility of using any type of fastening: self-tapping screws, nails, construction glue;
- large selection of shades;
- the ability to tolerate weathering well;
- easy care.
Aluminum composite models are also considered one of the siding options that is considered practical, especially when it comes to open, unglazed balconies. The material is distinguished not only by its high cost, but also by a large number of advantages:
- incombustibility of panels;
- high resistance to high humidity and temperature extremes;
- a large selection of color schemes;
- high rigidity and strength, allowing to withstand even high pressure;
- the ability to elasticity and easy bending.
Aluminum panels are produced in the form of a continuous strip, which allows, if necessary, to cut the sheet to the desired length. This makes the material waste-free and economical. The average thickness of the panels is 0.2-0.6 cm, the width is 16 cm, and the maximum length is 6 m. A well-chosen chemical composition allows the aluminum composite to withstand an acidic environment. Thanks to this feature, the panels are not subject to corrosion and abrasion. Decorating the balcony inside with aluminum panel siding is considered the only option for which users do not highlight any drawbacks.
Other options than sheathe a balcony: ceramic tiles, drywall, cork
Plasterboard is considered a traditional material for interior decoration. After surface treatment, drywall can be plastered, wallpapered, painted and covered with any of the listed types of cladding.
A layer of thick plasterboard consists of several layers of dense cardboard, between which the dried gypsum mixture is distributed. It can be dry mounted on horizontal surfaces or on a pre-prepared metal frame. It is especially important to use sheets with strong irregularities and curved walls. Among the advantages of cladding are:
- long service life - about 15 years;
- safe for health composition;
- good vapor permeability;
- clear course of work during installation;
- the ability to give surfaces different shapes;
- the ability to keep warm and absorb extraneous noise.
Interesting information! Plasterboard boards are versatile materials that are used as a basis for decorative finishes. Liquid and ordinary wallpaper, plaster, decorative tiles, as well as artificial stone look good on drywall.
A significant disadvantage of the material is considered fragility and sensitivity to changes in temperature and humidity, therefore it is better to use this type of finish on an insulated and glazed balcony. The best consumer properties are moisture-resistant boards.
Cork is made from cork, which is crushed and pressed during production. On trading floors, the material is presented in the form of thin sheets, the so-called veneer, which is convenient to use for surface finishing. This material is especially good for using on balconies and loggias, where a children's area is organized. The cork is considered a hypoallergenic natural raw material, which is lightweight, which makes installation easier. The wood base does not burn, does not absorb odors, and is also pleasant to the touch. After facing, the room is considered to be reliably sound and heat insulated.
Ceramic tiles have an attractive appearance and are resistant to atmospheric vibrations. Such a surface is easy to maintain. Thanks to the large assortment, you can choose the finish not only for walls, but also for flooring. Many are interested in what is better to make the floor on the loggia or open balcony.The best option is considered to be ceramic tiles, intended for decoration of verandas and other open spaces.
Helpful advice! If the surfaces are made of cold materials such as tile or stone, it is best to install a warm floor covering such as carpet, laminate or parquet flooring. In the photo, the decoration of the balconies inside with a laminate looks very good, in addition, it is pleasant to stand on such a floor. This option is only suitable for enclosed spaces.
Not everyone can afford to use natural stone for repairs. And it is not always rational to use expensive material in such a small area. It is much more practical to finish the balcony with decorative brick or artificial stone, which are both cheaper and less load on the supporting structures. Modern technologies give the material a graceful appearance, which allows you to decorate a room for any purpose. It is appropriate to use this finishing option for both closed and open balconies.
The main ways and ideas to make the balcony beautiful: design options
Today the balcony has become an integral part of every apartment. The room is used not only as a storage room. For example, people who prefer to work remotely use the balcony space to create a small office, because there you can install not only a laptop table, but also other office equipment.
In this case, it is important to keep the room spacious and light and not saturate the room with distracting details. With this design, the room must be well insulated so that it is comfortable to be in it at any time of the year. Basic recommendations for the implementation of the cabinet on the balcony:
- it is better to use spotlights and mobile lamps for lighting;
- so that you can work at any time of the day, it is advised to close the windows with blinds or curtains;
- decorating a balcony is recommended in a loft or high-tech style, which do not accept a large number of accessories;
- it is better to install furniture that is multifunctional, but at the same time characterized by a simple and discreet design.
If the main purpose of the balcony is a recreation room, warm pastel colors and cozy accessories should also be preferred in decoration, such as:
- wicker chairs;
- flowers in pots;
- hanging hammocks;
- attractive curtains;
- homemade sofas and pallet armchairs.
A large number of various photos of interior decoration options for the balcony show that the owners often want to use the room for arranging a winter garden or greenhouse. In such a situation, it is important to take into account the peculiarities of the growth of plants that are planned to be bred indoors. The main conditions necessary for the development of plants include:
- good illumination;
- optimal air temperature;
- sufficient hydration.
In general, a heated room with warm glazing is suitable for creating a greenhouse. What is the best way to make the walls on the balcony? Here, preference should be given to moisture-resistant materials, because for normal plant growth, the air will have to be constantly humidified with a spray bottle with water. In this case, it is not recommended to glue the wallpaper or use wooden panels on the balcony, which, due to constant waterlogging, may lose their shape or come off.
As an additional decor and to focus on certain objects, it is important to use various lighting options, but it is important to think over this option even at the stage of the repair in order to reliably hide the wiring. Any style directions are suitable for decorating a winter garden, but the most relevant interior looks like Japanese, modern or country style. Designers also pay attention to the fact that it is important to combine green plants with rattan or vine wicker furniture.
Other design options for balconies: photos illustrating interesting decoration ideas
Considering the photo of the design of finishing the balconies inside, you can also observe non-standard options, for example, using the premises to organize a small gym. It is important to take into account the weight of the simulators when arranging so that they do not put excessive stress on the floors. This design option is preferable when organizing the space of a spacious loggia. In a small balcony, it will be appropriate to limit yourself to the installation of the Swedish wall, near which there will be enough space for training and for placing a soft mat. In this case, you can make a balcony either with cork or with wallpaper or plaster.
If the balcony is small, shelves with books can be placed along the corner and long wall. It is advisable to install a comfortable table and chair near them. Thus, the space easily turns into a cozy library, which is appropriate to equip with a good floor lamp with a rotating shade. A small sofa with soft pillows or a rocking chair will be an ideal addition to the room.
In the photographs of the balconies, you can see that quite often a children's room is expanded with the help of additional space, or a small children's corner is simply organized here. If the balcony is used as an area for children, special attention should be paid to insulating not only the walls, but also the floor. In this case, it will be appropriate to install a warm floor. It must be remembered that it is strictly forbidden, according to building codes, to bring central heating batteries here.
Important! When the balcony space is used for children, be sure to think about safety by installing protective grilles and locks on the windows to prevent children from opening the window. In this case, it is better to select natural and environmentally friendly materials as an option for finishing the balcony inside.
The kitchen area is taken out onto the balcony only in rare cases, and not only because of the difficulties associated with the transfer of some communications, but also because of the need to obtain some permits. Therefore, more often a dining area is set up on a balcony or loggia. To do this, you just need to choose the optimal table size, and materials that require simple maintenance should be attached to the walls. Other space design options:
- Organization of a miniature bedroom, which, if necessary, is used as an additional bed.
- Removal to the workshop balcony area, where you can lay out all the items necessary for work with the help of a large number of hanging furniture and racks.
