Juilet Balconies

 

Juliet balconies were named after the famous balcony scene from Shakespeare's tragic love story Romeo and Juliet. Like a petite porch or a very shallow balcony perhaps a foot (or 30cm) deep, a Juliet balcony is smaller than a traditional balcony. It will probably only have enough room for one, or at most two, people to stand on. Some Juliet balconies don't have any floor at all, being simply a set of railings held flush to the wall for visual effect.

 

These days, you will often find this type of balcony positioned above a traditional family room with a two-story ceiling. For safety reasons, in order to act like a safe barrier, they are mostly built with strong wrought iron or steel railings.

 

When renovating their residential property many people want to avoid building an extended structure. They find that a Juliet balcony is a far more attractive option. They can be installed quickly and easily and are not as expensive as traditional balconies. There is no need for any re-evaluation of the foundations of your house and no extra foundations required in order to accommodate them.

 

Of course, safety must be your priority here. The railings must be firmly attached to the building, fixed properly into the structure of the building. They need to have the inbuilt strength to withstand the combined weight of several adults leaning on them.

 

Choose a faux balcony design mimicking a classic European estate, or go for a more contemporary feel. With simple, small adjustments to the lines and curvature of the banisters and railings, your Juliet balcony can be made to look very romantic or more casual according to your taste.

 

Juliet balconies are eye-catching. Generally, they will enhance the look and overall value of your home. They are the ideal choice for those who want to bring more light into their home. With its mini-terrace made safe by a strong balustrade, parapet or railing, the Juliet balcony is an option many find hard to resist.
