During the pandemic, we have discovered the potential of balconies and terraces. Now we know that our outdoor space is used for everything: to have a reading corner, to set up a barbecue with relatives or even to enjoy an outdoor cinema at home. The only drawback in some cases is the lack of intimacyterraces and balconies are private spaces because they are part of the house, but in some cases they are very exposed to the view of the neighborhood.
It is not something that we should worry about excessively, because after all, most of the things that we will do on the balcony are the same that we would do in public outdoor spaces, such as going on a picnic or sunbathing, but if we want to more privacy for our terrace We can achieve this with different decorative elements specially designed to cover the railing.

For example, one artificial ivy or a hedge of artificial plants can be one of the first options, the one in the cover image costs 135.99 euros on Amazon.
