The monsoon season provides welcome reprieve from the summer’s oppressive heat. The majority of us like being in nature and taking in the sights. We all love spending time in the yard or on our balconies surrounded by plants. If you haven’t already begun preparing your outside space for the upcoming rains, don’t worry; we’ve got you covered. After all, this is too lovely of a season to be wasted inside.
You can do a lot to make your home more pleasant during the monsoon, from sipping hot chai on the balcony to preparing for the rain. According to Lokendra Singh Ranawat, founder and CEO of WoodenStreet, “the three most important things to consider while preparing your home to make the most of the monsoons are fragrance, lighting, and music.”
Outdoor living areas that are well-furnished are like paradise during the monsoons. Bring some chic, underused furniture out to your balcony. Hritesh Lohiya, PritiHome’s co-founder and chief executive officer, suggests picturing a cosy table or chair where you may have a hot cup of tea and a muffin while gazing out at the rain.

During the rainy season, a covered balcony is the perfect place to relax and unwind on a plush rug. A warm and inviting atmosphere is created by them. Choose items with attractive aesthetics and colourful designs.
Decorations such as wind chimes, aromatic candles, low lighting, and hanging plants can help you get into the mood for this weather, much as in the movies.
To keep the interiors neat even in this gorgeous weather, Ranawat suggests installing a shoe rack, rubber floor mat, and umbrella stand in the entrance.
Fairy lights are a wonderful accessory for a balcony. When utilized in a space, fairy lights are known to provide a soothing effect. In doing so, they trigger the production of endorphins, or “feel-good” chemicals. Lohiya also recommends pairing them with some greenery or a decorative cage for added ambience.
