A narrow site does not necessarily mean space problems. If you accept the idea that the house can go up instead of extending out, then you have plenty of solutions to put in practice. Today, we want to show you several examples of smartly built layers of decks, balconies and rooftops that make the usual homes soar to their maximum potential. First of all, when decorating outdoor, pay attention to flooring.  Wooden floors on porches benefit from a good coat of paint (and perhaps a couple of coats of polyurethane). Choose a color that’s compatible with the color of your house’s exterior walls — maybe a color that matches the existing shutters. Don’t put indoor upholstery on a porch because sun, rain, and dust will damage it.  Instead, use wicker, teak, aluminum, wrought iron, or wood as furniture for seating. Last, but not least, add personality with accessories: potted plants — especially those that bloom — are a natural outdoor accessory. Pile a bunch into a child’s red wagon, antique wicker pram, or old wooden boxes. Take a look and let us know if this project inspired you!
