Do I Need Planning Permission for a Juliet Balcony?

Juliet Balcony Planning Permission

One of the questions we frequently hear asked is “do I need planning permission for a Juliet balcony?” The answer tends to be no, but there is no straight answer. Read on to understand more about planning regulations for Juliet balconies. A Juliet balcony is not a traditional balcony so planning regulations are more lenient. As you do not need an external platform for the balcony, very little alteration is taking place to your property.

Make the Most of Your Bedroom with a Glass Juliet Railing Balcony.

Bedroom Juliet RailingChances are your bedroom is a private sanctuary. A place where you can relax and recharge in privacy. A Juliet balcony is a wonderful way to add to the serenity of your bedroom. Add light, a sense of space and fully appreciate your surroundings with the beauty of our non-obtrusive glass balconies.

Let the Light In

A glass and metal Juliet balcony lets you take advantage of natural light at its best. Enjoying those early morning rays as you sit in bed with a cup of tea must be one of the best ways to start the day; all that natural light will set your day off perfectly. And come the autumn and winter, you’ll have an unhindered view of the night sky, perfect for a spot of stargazing before bed.

On a more pragmatic angle, a Juliet balcony will bring more light into bedrooms that are a bit too dark and dingy. Perhaps you have an embarrassingly dark guest room? Fit one of our balconies and your guests may love their room so much they don’t want to leave.

The stunning look that our glass balustrades produce is hard to beat but, because it’s glass, some people have concerns over safety. We’ll also talk about keeping the glass clean.

Keeping the Original Stunning Look

Glass Balustrade - Paul & Brenda Reach, DartmouthLet’s start by looking at keeping it clean. The aluminium handrails come in different coatings, which in all cases just wipe clean with soap and water. You don’t need any chemicals or abrasive pads as these will damage the coating. This makes our systems much easier to keep clean than Stainless steel systems, which tarnish over time.
