Have you transformed your balcony during lockdown? If so, you could win £1,000 in vouchers at a home retailer in our new competition.
Get Living has launched a contest to find Britain’s best balcony. All you need to do to be in with a shot of winning is to upload before and after photos of your balcony transformation to Instagram using the hashtag #BalconyMoment.
To give you some inspiration, we helped three households in East Village with eye-popping dream makeovers! One balcony was converted into a luxe Miami poolside, while another received a theatrical overhaul, perfect for both people watching and performing!
The last balcony makeover was themed around a bespoke wilderness outpost, offering the chance to spot all the local flora and fauna of East Village while camouflaged by foliage.
We were inspired to launch the competition after residents made incredible use of their balconies during the lockdown, including Phoebe Haines, who performed amazing classical renditions of songs such as You’ll Never Walk Alone.
And it’s not just East Village where people have been getting in on the act. Our research shows that 63% of people have grown to appreciate their outdoor space more since lockdown, and 69% of people have taken the chance to decorate their space.
Get Living’s hunt for Britain’s best balcony aims to celebrate the best in design, creativity and use of space.
The competition is open to anyone with an outdoor space at home and invites people to share photos of their transformed space on Instagram using the hashtag #BalconyMoment and tagging @SimplyGetLiving in the caption.
The winner will receive a £1,000 prize to spend at the home retailer of their choice. Upload your photos by midnight on 1st September 2020 to be in with a shot.
Ian Gibbs, Director of Neighbourhoods at Get Living said: “Our residents have well and truly made the most of their outdoor spaces, whether that’s their balconies or the communal outdoor spaces at Get Living neighbourhoods up and down the country.
“Seeing the creativity on display has been fantastic, and with the hot summer weather here, there’s never been a better time to spruce up your balcony and enter our competition.”
