Bronze Juliet Balcony

While today's Juliet balconies differ from the famous stone structure portrayed in Shakespeare's well-known Romeo and Juliet story, they continue to hold their appeal. The evolution of this centuries-old building element can be attributed to modern materials, contemporary construction styles, and changing lifestyles.

Firstly, it is essential to distinguish between a Juliet balcony and a larger "walk-on" balcony that provides access to open outdoor space. Serving as a "guard" or security barrier for sliding doors or inward opening full-height French Doors on a first-floor room or above, a Juliet balcony allows for increased natural light and fresh air when the doors are open.

Low maintenance solution

Using glass panels, with or without a handrail, creates an elegant Juliet balcony that offers an unobstructed view without the need for railings   or bars. Glass is an ideal choice due to its low maintenance nature, eliminating the need for time-consuming and costly painting required for iron or timber structures. Simply wiping down the glass occasionally is all that is required to keep it looking pristine.

Connect with the outdoors

Where space or planning regulations restrict the installation of a full external balcony, a compact Juliet balcony provides an alternative that allows you to experience a connection with the outdoors. One of the key advantages of a Juliet balcony is the protection it offers from the elements, as it is situated inside your home.

During warmer days, opening the French Doors connected to your glass Juliet balcony allows you to fully enjoy the view while benefiting from increased ventilation. It creates a comfortable space where you can sit and appreciate the surrounding environment without compromising on convenience or safety.

Additional natural light

By replacing a window with full-height French Doors and incorporating a Juliet balcony, you can truly transform a room, be it a bedroom, office, loft conversion, or living room. This alteration brings about a significant change, allowing ample natural light to enter the space. Not only is increased natural light beneficial for our health, but it also promotes the well-being of houseplants, further enhancing the overall ambiance and atmosphere. Embracing this upgrade contributes to a more inviting and uplifting environment throughout.

Affordable Juliet balconies

Modern glass Juliet balconies not only offer an aesthetically pleasing appearance, but they are also cost-effective with minimal ongoing maintenance expenses. The use of glass panels ensures optimal light transmission, preserves the view, and simplifies the cleaning process. Balconette's anodised aluminium or powder-coated handrails, as well as anodised side-profiles, have demonstrated excellent corrosion resistance and require minimal ongoing care.

For those seeking a seamless and unobstructed view, a frameless glass Juliet balcony is the ideal choice. With no handrail, it provides a clear and pure glass experience while still providing the necessary secure barrier. This type of Juliet balcony offers a beautiful aesthetic from any angle, making it a captivating addition to any space.

So, what is the point of a Juliet balcony?

To enhance your view, maximize natural light, and improve the airflow in your home, a Juliet balcony serves as the perfect solution. Opting for a glass Juliet balcony, with its sleek and clean lines, is a fantastic and affordable method to elevate both the external and internal aesthetics of your home. There's no denying that they truly enhance the overall appearance.
