What is a Juliet balcony?
A Juliet/Juliette balcony (also known as a balconette) is a narrow railing that sits just outside a set of windows or french doors. It is not the type of balcony that can be stepped on, but a decorative barrier made flush to your building.
Taking its name from Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet, they are a popular design feature in Europe and continue to grow in popularity in the UK. Most commonly constructed from steel, glass or iron, they are designed to give the appearance of a full balcony when the large windows or french doors are open.
The benefits of having a Juliet balcony
- Increases natural light
- Adds value to your property
- Creates a sense of space
- Increases air circulation and ventilation
- Pleasant and attractive spaces optimise productivity in the workplace
Not only that, but a Juliet balcony may often be the most suitable option for a property for a range of reasons.
Attached with stainless steel fixings and made from high-quality materials, Juliet balconies are a versatile decorative option for your home or business. They’re suitable for both residential homes and large scale commercial projects and many different types of buildings including new builds.
- Simple and easy to install
Generally speaking, Juliet balconies require no planning permission. The balconies come pre-constructed for simple installation. Therefore, the installation process is quick and minimally disruptive.
- A huge range of design options
ifab is proud to offer a range of different styles and materials that can be chosen to suit your taste. This allows us to blend your balcony perfectly with the building it's attached to while creating something bespoke for you.
For example, choosing a glass Juliet balcony can provide a modern look to your upper floors while letting more light into your rooms. Laminated glass ensures you have a safe barrier between indoors and outside. We supply clear and frosted options to suit your preference of style.
Or perhaps you want a more classic look. We offer wrought iron railings that come 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 the balcony is another option you need to consider. All of our paints are powder coated for optimal protection and prevent the colour from chipping away over time.
