Using a lattice for privacy is just one of the product’s many functions. While you’ll get the best results if you grow plants up, this isn’t always necessary, unlike with a trellis.

Surprisingly, there are plenty of ways to use a privacy lattice on a balcony. To help get you inspired, here are 6 ways to use a lattice for privacy.

Maintenance While lattices don’t need a ton of maintenance, they’re not as long-lasting as metal screens.

Things to Consider Before Setting Up a Privacy Lattice

Blocking the railing

Lattices with larger holes are a bit more common, so you can always use an expandable lattice like this one and add more privacy with real or artificial plants.

Hung from the ceiling

A privacy lattice hung from your balcony’s ceiling won’t do a ton. But you could use it as the basis for a larger privacy setup, such as hanging curtains or plants, to create a more contained space.

Freestanding privacy lattice panels

Freestanding panels are ideal as space dividers or as a flexible privacy option. Unlike other lattices, they obviously don’t need to be fixed to a surface.

Wall topper

If you have a balcony wall rather than a railing, consider using a privacy lattice as a topper. A small expandable lattice is ideal for adding extra height and support for plants.

Plant support
