What are Juliet balconies?

Juliet balconies are narrow railings or balconies that sit across an opening (such as French doors) in the upper story of your house. Unlike a classic balcony, their main function is an aesthetic one; so, they don’t extend outwards and can’t be walked on. 

Juliet balcony benefits

Key benefits of Juliet balconies include:

Increased natural light 

Aside from their elegant look on the outside of the house, they also look stunning from the inside. The glass design helps to fill the room with light, helping to make the most of your existing space. This will also help you save money on bills during the daytime. 

Improved airflow 

As well as lighting up your space, a Juliet balcony can help improve the airflow into your home on warmer days, providing more space for the air to enter the room.

Compact Size 

Due to their smaller size, a Juliet balcony is a more versatile installation than a regular balcony. It allows you to capture the essence of being on a balcony and overlooking your property, in areas where installing a full balcony may not be feasible. 

Lower maintenance 

Juliet balconies are ideal, because they give the appearance of a regular balcony, but without the maintenance involved. They are also easier to install than a real balcony, as well as being easier to clean due to their small size and singular glass pane.

Money saving 

Due to them being easier to install, Juliet balconies can typically be installed without requiring planning permission, or an architect’s involvement. They can generally be bolted onto an existing wall, which makes them much cheaper and quicker to install.

Seamless connection with the outdoors 

Whilst you can’t sit on the balcony itself, you can easily set up a comfortable seating area next to the opening, so you can enjoy the view whenever you like. The stunning unobstructed glass offers a seamless connection to the outdoors, without having to leave the comfort of your home.

Safety 

As you have to sit within the floor boundaries inside the house to enjoy the view from your Juliet balcony, you will feel more safe and secure. The unobstructed edge means you don’t need to lean over the edge to enjoy the view. You can simply pull up a chair and grab a blanket or a drink and look out at your surroundings in comfort and safety, with protection from the elements.

Where can you put a Juliet balcony?

A Juliet balcony can be installed across an upper story opening in your house. Ordinarily, this is in front of sliding, bifold or French doors. 

How much do they cost?

Coming in at a much more affordable price than full balconies, a Juliet balcony can cost between £293 and £741.59, depending on your design preference, glass thickness and size requirements. A frameless style can cost between £333.43-£741.59, with prices sitting at around £293-£700 for a glass one.

FAQs

Why is it called a Juliet balcony?

It’s called a Juliet balcony as its style is inspired by the iconic balcony from Romeo and Juliet, offering the opportunity to enjoy the outdoor view without protruding from the building itself.

Can you walk out onto a Juliet balcony?

No, you can’t walk out onto a Juliet balcony, as it is formed of a sheet of glass bolted onto an existing wall. The floor in front of it is the existing flooring inside your home.

Juliet balcony safe?

As the floor in front of it is inside your home, a Juliet balcony is a safer option than a regular balcony. This is because you don’t have to hang over the edge to enjoy the view. You can also install railings for extra safety, if you feel this would be beneficial.

Are Juliet balconies worth it?

Juliet balconies are worth it if you’re looking to open up your existing space and get the aesthetic, and unobstructed view, of a balcony, whilst saving time and money. They’re also perfect for ventilating your space and opening it up to natural light, helping you get the most out of your property, inside and out. Additionally, they can be an easy way to add value to your home. However, it’s important to check with your local estate agent in the event you’re looking to sell, so they can advise you based on your specific property and the current market conditions.

Great service from the team. Easy to order, good buying guidance and clear install instructions for my builder. Rooflights look absolutely great! The team at TGS couldn't have been more helpful in organising a smaller delivery vehicle to help with restricted access. Highly recommend TGS.

The glass balustrade gives us an amazing view onto the lake outside. So happy we ended up going for the frameless glass balcony from Toughened Glass Systems instead of one with posts

My job is to design the interiors for a lot of houses and a lot of times the hardest part was when the client wanted some really inexpensive rooflights that should look like some contemporary ones as well. That until I found Toughened Glass Systems and started working with them more and more. They have a lot of this kind of stuff at a very decent price, a price for anyone I can say. If you’re looking for cheap skylights for flat roofs or any types of roof lights, they probably have something for you.
