2. Install rain curtains – If you are not able to get rain curtains, you can also opt for shower curtains that some in various sizes, patterns, colors and material. They not just look great but are also budget friendly. Even during the summer months these curtains can be used to block the sunlight.
3. Bring some water-proof furniture –Make sure that you enjoy the rain without worrying about what would happen to your furniture. Bring in some furniture like a couple of chairs and a small table which is water-proof. They come in various designs and would add to the glam of the space that you have.
4. Apply water-proof paint – When you decide to paint your balcony, make sure that you buy a water-proof one so the walls will not catch any moisture during the rainy days and it will also prevent the growth of fungi.
