Bamboo Fencing DIY for Small Spaces
Decorating small patios and areas for condos and apartments can be frustrating at times. Fortunately,Â Bamboo fencing DIY is the perfect solution for creating a beautiful yet space saving design. It can also be the easiest DIY you have ever come across. The only hard part is decidingÂ the height, thickness,and color of your bamboo fencing!
The first step is to decide why you need bamboo fencing. Are the walls or balcony unsightly? Do you need more privacy? Or maybe you just want a new look to your outside area. Whatever your reasons are, these factors will help you choose the best type of bamboo fencing. If you would like more coverage and privacy, 3 or 4 foot fencing is perfect for smaller balconies. Some condo or apartment associationsÂ may allow up to 6 feet of fencing but if you live on the second floor, a 3 or 4 foot fencing is sufficient.
The thickness of bamboo poles is a personal style choice. Thinner styles are subtle and blends into the background better than thicker style poles. Thinner poles are more versatile in style while thicker poles look more tropical in style. Bamboo fencing makes a great backdrop for your design needs. Unsightly patio bars or aging drywall can be easily masked by propping up bamboo fencing. Dress up your patio space with some clean and modern planters or a small patio furniture set.
Bamboo fencing comes in various shades. Natural, Natural Black, and Mahogany are all very popular colors when it comes to making over your patio or balcony space. Natural Black and Mahogany are beautiful contemporary shades that will work with many designs. Natural is a warm and neutral color that would also be a great addition to your condo or apartment.
Hang your bamboo fencing horizontally with zip ties like the picture above. Or set it traditionally so that the poles are vertical instead. This easy bamboo fencing DIY is a great way to kickstart any patio or balcony makeovers to come!
