Storing extra things and objects on the balcony or loggia, which are very disturbing in the rooms, in the kitchen or hallway – is very inconvenient. The balcony becomes a temporary or permanent “haven” for car tires, bicycles, building materials, and libraries.
Naturally, people perform such actions because of the lack of free space. But 50% of the population still try to equip the balcony space as a recreation area, a library or a game room.

Modern residential buildings have quite large balconies and loggias, so there are a lot of options for how to make an interesting and useful interior of non-residential space. These are decorative terraces, a space for tea drinking, a chess or computer room. Some on the balconies arrange workshops for modeling or decorative arts.
