Juliet balconies are a desirable feature for British homes: they enhance natural light, support better ventilation, and make your rooms feel brighter and more spacious. There are a variety of styles of Juliet balconies available, from simple classics to ornate designs, so which one would best suit your home?

Read our guide to choosing the right type of balcony for your home:

Styles of Juliet Balconies

A Juliet balcony is typically viewed from both the inside and outside of your home, so it should complement the character of all aspects of your home design. It could also be installed internally, for example, across an opening of a loft.

You should consider whether you’d like the balcony to be across an existing window, or could even explore the possibility of renovating your property to include bifold doors or French windows to enhance the connection with the outdoors.

Modern homes are best suited for contemporary Juliet balconies that come in sleek lines with glass infill and an anthracite or stainless finish, like the Severn glass Juliet balcony and the Teviot stainless steel Juliet balcony.

Period properties can keep their character with Juliet balconies featuring black curved railings with ornate patterns, like Forjj’s Medway Curved Juliet balcony.

Keep in mind, though, that Juliet balconies of all styles can add a unique feature to your home, whether you’d like to add a classic touch to a contemporary property, a modern vibe to a traditional home, or even if you’d like to request a bespoke design for your Juliet balcony.

Building regulations and safety

Ensure that you select a Juliet balcony that is compliant with UK Building Regulations and that the manufacturer is vigilant about complying with safety legislation.

Not all balcony manufacturers are registered or monitored under required safety standards, unfortunately, so do your research and select a manufacturer that utilises materials and processes that will ensure your balcony is safe, secure, long-lasting, and in line with building regulations.
