Juliet Balconies

What is a Juliet balcony?

A Juliet/Juliette balcony (also known as a balconette or a false balcony) is a decorative railing that sits just outside a set of windows or French doors.  

This is not the type of balcony that can be stepped on. Instead, a Juliet balcony is made flush to your building, allowing more air and natural light to enter your property. A Juliet balcony allows you to open your windows or French doors fully and safely.  It also helps increase the sense of space in your property, whether it is a flat, house or office building. 

Taking its name from Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet, Juliet balconies are a popular design feature in Europe and continue to grow in popularity in the UK. Mostly constructed from steel, glass or iron, Juliet balconies are designed to give the appearance of a full balcony once the adjoining windows or inward-swinging French doors are open. 


What is the difference between a standard balcony and a Juliet balcony?

A traditional balcony will provide you with enough room to stand or sit out on the balcony itself. It will add extra space to a property and be large enough to comfortably place outdoor furniture on.  

By contrast, a Juliet balcony does not give you room to sit or stand. Sometimes known as a false balcony, Juliet balconies are very narrow. They allow you to safely open up your room to the outside by providing a comfortable, secure railing at the outer plane of your existing window. When the windows are open, you are free to safely lean over your new Juliet balcony and enjoy unobstructed views around your property.  

Juliet balconies are often attached to apartment buildings as they offer a greater sense of space and an alternative way to enjoy the fresh air if you do not have the luxury of a garden. 

Due to their smaller size, Juliet balconies are more reasonably priced than full-sized steel balconies. 

Their size also makes the delivery and installation of Juliet balconies more simple and easier to perform, meaning you could have your bespoke Juliete balcony designed and installed in just a matter of weeks.  


What are the benefits of Juliet balconies?

Juliet balconies are excellent additions to homes and flats. They give an increased sense of space and help bring more light into your property. 

The main advantages of installing a Juliet balcony are:  

  • Increase natural light
  • Adds value to your property
  • Creates a larger sense of space
  • Increases air circulation and ventilation
  • Pleasant and attractive spaces that optimise productivity in your workplace and home. 


Why install a juliet balcony?

Juliet balconies are a highly suitable option for a range of different property types. They are adaptable, easy to install and offer a variety of design options for you to choose from. 

Let's take a look at each of these key points in more detail below: 



Attached with stainless steel fixings and made from high-quality materials, Juliet balconies are a versatile decorative option for your home and business. 

They are suitable for both residential homes and large-scale commercial projects. Juliette balconies are available for many different buildings, including new builds and high-rise blocks. 


Simple and easy to install

Generally speaking, Juliet balconies require no planning permission.

The balconies arrive pre-constructed for simple installation. Therefore, the installation process is quick and causes minimal disruption.  


A vast range of design options

ifab is proud to offer a range of different styles and materials which you can choose from to customise your Juliet balcony. This allows us to blend your new Juliet balcony perfectly with the building it is attached to, while creating it specifically to your taste. 

Choosing a glass Juliet balcony can provide a modern look to the upper levels of your property as well as letting more light into your rooms. Laminated glass ensures you have a safe barrier between inside and outside. We supply clear and frosted options to suit your preferred style. 

We also offer more classic looks with our wrought iron railings in different styles and patterns. Steel, such as 316 marine grade stainless steel, looks sleek polished and is made to withstand the elements without degrading or rusting. 

The colour of your Juliet balcony is another area for consideration. All of our paints are powder coated for optimal protection, which prevents the colour from chipping away over time, leaving a stylish, modern look for years to come.
