With more of us spending an increasing amount of time at home, there's a growing emphasis on maximizing space and daylight in our living spaces. Unsurprisingly, external balconies and Juliet Balconies have garnered increasing interest. So, how do you make the most of a Juliet Balcony?

A glass Juliet Balcony offers a wonderful and cost-effective way to enhance light, space, and views in almost any type of building. Whether it's for larger commercial and communal projects like retail developments, restaurants, and retirement homes, or for family homes and flats, there's a Juliet Balcony to complement any design.

If you're contemplating your next project or simply seeking inspiration, here are some Balconette ideas to ignite your enthusiasm for incorporating a Juliet Balcony into your life.


How do you use a Juliet Balcony?

Let in natural light and increase ventilation

A glass Juliet Balcony is a stylish way to enhance space within an upstairs room, be it a bedroom, a first floor living room, or a loft conversion. By installing inward-opening French doors, sliding, or bi-fold doors, protected with a Juliet Balcony for safety, you can seamlessly connect the indoors with the outdoors.

Thanks to the floor-to-ceiling glass in the doors, natural light levels are significantly increased. On warmer days, with the doors open, ventilation improves, promoting better sleep-in bedrooms during the summer months.

Furthermore, a glass Juliet Balcony, whether with a low-maintenance aluminium handrail or a frameless design, ensures an uninterrupted view.

Relax with a Juliet Balcony

While a Juliet Balcony may not provide the opportunity to sit in the open air, it allows you to connect with the great outdoors while remaining protected from the elements. Placing a table and chairs next to your Juliet Balcony enables you to relish the fresh air and views, all from the comfort of your home.

How do you use a Juliet Balcony in communal living?

Glass Juliet Balconies serve as an uplifting design feature in larger communal dwellings, including retirement homes and hotels. Their use on mezzanine floor levels and landings enhances the sense of spaciousness and allows natural light to permeate the internal space.

Glass panels used as a balustrading feature, whether with an aluminium handrail or a sleek frameless design, make them virtually maintenance-free and, of course, easy to clean.

How do you use a Juliet Balcony – face the right way

Consider the placement of your Juliet Balcony if you want to make the most of it. Northern-facing aspects tend to receive little direct sunlight, which means your Juliet Balcony will mostly be in the shade. However, the available light will be optimized by a larger expanse of glass.

Conversely, south-facing aspects will receive the most sun, offering the benefits of warm sunlight and extra ventilation on long summer days.
