A Juliet balcony, sometimes alternatively referred to as a Juliette balcony or balconette, is a type of shallow balcony that is attached to the exterior of a building. Although the edificial adornment is small, it can have a hugely positive effect on a structure and spaces within.
Benefits of a Juliet Balcony
A Juliet balcony can be attached to the exterior of a building to permit the installation of full length windows. The railings provide a safety barrier that helps to negate any health and safety issues related to having full length window.
The extra light admitted through full length windows can cause a dramatic change in a room and help to create and brighter airier atmosphere. Juliet balconies are particularly useful in buildings where natural light is at a premium and are often installed on the exterior of lounge areas or bedrooms, where people generally spend the majority of their time at home.
Owing to the compact nature of the architectural feature, Juliet balconies are very popular in urban areas such as city centres.
Balconettes are available in a huge range of different designs, from intricate Victorian styles to minimalist modern options. The balconies are also available in a wide variety of different sizes. The balconies may be fitted to cover a single pair of full length windows or an entire side of a building – the size is generally dictated by the requirements of a customer.
Juliet balconies are slim in design; however, they are built to last and offer great strength and security. The architectural features are made from hard wearing materials, such as stainless steel, that are not only robust but resistant to corrosion.
