Re: balconies - Europe vs USA vs World
said by sk1939:Funny. I lived in Europe. My wife is from Europe. We have an apartment in Europe with a balcony. In my experience, all the balconies in Europe are pretty much used the same as in the US - for smoking, plants & bicycle storage; not to mention hanging laundry, satellite TV antenna, and the occasional BBQ. Yes, they do have pretty different cultures; but not when it comes to apartment balconies.
every apartment that I've had that has one has either been utilized as a smoking section for visitors or a place to put plants and a bicycle, that's about it.
Do you rent it out?
Yeah, I noticed small balconies in Paris, some had clothes drying. Others were small patios with café table. But most were too small for anything but a smoke.
