What is a Juliet Balcony?

Thinking about buying a French doors-style Juliet balcony? If you have large windows or doors in your home or flat, then a modern Juliet balcony is a wonderful option, providing an extra level of security, especially if you have children or pets in the home.

What’s more, they enable you to open your doors and windows in the summer without any risk of danger. Also known as a Romeo & Juliet balcony or exterior door, a Juliet doors balcony allows light and air into a property, and stands out as a robust and long-lasting home addition.  Steel is most commonly used for a Juliet balcony Verona, although glass is also a popular material, as it allows more light into the interior space, adding to the aesthetics of a building façade.

Juliet Balconies Offer Style, Function and Aesthetic Appeal

Juliet railings are an interesting feature that can help you open up living rooms or bedrooms. Also known as balconets, Juliet balconies are made up of a railing placed over large windows which reach to the floor. When the doors are open, it gives the appearance of a balcony. This is an excellent way to let in more light and air to rooms on the first floor or above, and this look is suitable for both contemporary and traditional homes.

Juliet or Juliette balconies are gorgeous architectural features which aren’t a type of balcony you can walk on but act more like a shielding or guard in front of an opening or door. ‘Juliets’ are a favourite in terms of architectural styles and are a cost-effective way of adding a balcony to residential developments, even if the structures weren’t built with them.

An essential element of this balcony is its railing. The Juliet balcony railing is so well-designed that it lets light and air into the house doubling as a sturdy and hard-wearing railing material, with wrought iron being the preferred material.
