You can have a beautiful glass “Juliet Balcony”. The Juliet balcony does not strut out like most balconies, but is recessed into the side of the building. It was named after Juliet in the famed “Romeo and Juliet” by Shakespeare. Romeo courted Juliet as she stood looking down from her balcony. Juliet balconies are usually fairly narrow in depth and have only a balustrade across the front of it. A true “Juliet Balcony” has no platform, and opens with a door or most frequently double doors, such as “French Doors”. These were used in the olden days to let light and ventilation into dark dreary rooms. A barrier is used to keep occupants of the room from falling when the doors were opened.
What Design Options Are Available for a Glass Juliet Balcony?
When it comes to design options for a glass Juliet Balcony, it could be seemingly endless. There is a lot you can do with this particular balcony style which benefits both the interior and exterior design. Lets look at some of the choices for a “Glass Juliet Balcony”.
Back Painted Glass Juliet Balcony – A back painted glass Juliet Balcony can come in almost any colour, or be matched to a colour sample you provide. This balcony is fantastic because it will add to the design element or style of the existing structure into which it is installed. You can also play up on the opening door styling and balustrades, such as “Tudor”, “French Provincial”, or any major influence styling you choose.
Clear or Tinted Glass Juliet Balcony – Clear and tinted glass is a great choice for any type of balcony because it doesn’t impede your view. A smoky tint looks fantastic paired up with the exterior of many contemporary homes. It would also look great in a modern business with an upper level and fancy wrought iron work.
A “Glass Juliet Balcony” is a Good Overall Choice in Balcony Styles
A glass “Juliet Balcony” not only looks great, but it is fairly easy to have installed. Another commendable thing about these balconies is the fact they can fit and carry good styling most any where. “Juliet” balconies are sometimes referred to as “balconettes”, which means a smaller balcony. They are often employed as false balconies for cosmetic purposes to spice up the decor. Doors usually work best with Juliet balconies, but you can also build a Juliet balcony where you have ceiling to floor length windows. Double doors and double windows always work best with Juliet balconies. On occasion you will find a Juliet balcony with a small deck, or platform, where there is just enough space to stand. In the past ornate metal was often used for the Juliet balcony as in the case of “Romeo and Juliet”. Architectural innovations and advanced technology armed with contemporary measures have placed the glass Juliet balcony very high on the list when it comes to choosing the perfect balcony for home and office use.
