Light Up Your Room With A Juliet Balcony

Our SMART Juliet balconies are the perfect choice for both commercial and domestic property use. Available with stainless steel and glass or structural/frameless glass balustrades, Juliet balconies are great for providing a secure barrier in front of your french doors or windows, elevating the architectural design of a property. They are a great way to create an outdoor, open feel to an indoor area.

We can provide Juliet balconies with a range of glass variations to ensure maximum light into your property, as well as a choice of handrails to complete the feature. Unlike a standard balcony, Juliet balconies are very narrow and are typically used as a ‘guard in front of elevated doors or windows on a property. As well as their practical usage, Juliet balconies are also an elegant feature on a property – they are a popular choice for apartments, office buildings, care homes, hotels and modern residential homes. Our Juliette systems are all rigorously tested to ensure 100% compliance with building regulations.

Juliet balcony options

Our Juliet balconies can be installed with stainless steel and glass or structural/frameless glass balustrades. Glass adds much more of a contemporary, clean and open look, allowing much more light through to expand your space and make it feel more large. However, stainless steel is a more durable option, and very easy to clean, making it the perfect investment for any Juliet balcony.

Boost aesthetic with Juliet balconies

Juliet balconies can offer a strong and aesthetically pleasing element to your property, depending on their style they can really compliment your building to make it either more traditional or contemporary. A Juliet balcony can allow you to open up your space to much more light, and create a brighter and airy space, especially in the winter months. Bring the outdoors inside with our Juliet balconies, allowing you to enjoy fantastic views from the comfort of your home or commercial properties.

    Juliet Balcony FAQs

    A Juliet balcony is usually a railing or a very narrow balcony which sits just outside a window or a pair of French doors. These can also be referred to as balconets or balconettes, which are very common in countries such as Italy and Spain. Having a wide range of designs, from a traditional Victorian style to simpler, modern minimalist designs, these are the perfect add-on to spruce up your building or home. 

    A few steps need to be taken before installing a Juliet balcony, and hiring a professional team such as ourselves is your safest and most efficient way to get the project done. We will ensure all safety regulations are adhered to and the installation goes perfectly. However, if you have the relevant experience and skills to be able to do it yourself, you will need to consider the following:

    • Make sure to measure the area you want the balcony several times, to avoid any mistakes when ordering the balcony and fittings.
    • Ensure you obtain all the necessary tools and safety equipment.
    • It is best to have a spare pair of eyes and hands to help you along your project journey, assistance is highly recommended as you will need someone to hold material and keep a safe hold of any ladder or platform you’re using.
    • Check all planning permissions and regulations, making sure you comply with the minimum and maximum requirements and rules.

    Both of these structures are used to create more outdoor space and elevate your property, but they can differ in size, location and also construction. Balconies are usually a small and elevated platform that are usually fixed to a given room in a property. Whereas a terrace can have numerous access points, unlike balconies which will usually feature just one. Terraces are considerably larger, built on the ground and can be a standalone structure, whereas balconies are usually smaller, elevated and affixed to buildings or houses. However, Juliet balconies are very narrow, usually a railing that sits just outside a window or a pair of French doors and are a common architectural feature in Mediterranean countries.

    This is a common question, and the positive news is that most of the time you do not. Juliet balconies in the UK are classed as Permitted Developments, and due to this will not need planning permission. The exception to this where you will need planning permission can be:

    • The Juliet balcony does have a floor, no matter the size, and therefore it is considered to be a raised platform.
    • If the Juliet balcony is an uncommon feature where you live, you may be required to seek out planning permission. 
    • If the property is in a conservation zone or a listed property.

    Please double check before attempting to have the project started if you require planning permission, as it can vary depending on certain variables of your property and area.
