You wouldn’t know the Frameless Juliet was even there
Julie and Paul Dove selected a 2,180mm-wide Frameless Juliet balcony to provide the required barrier to French Doors in their first-floor master bedroom of their Cotswolds home.
The floor-to-ceiling doors, flanked by tall glass panels either side, allow maximum natural light into the room and make the most of far-reaching views over adjacent countryside near Chipping Campden.

Juliet balconies are increasingly popular and deservedly so. Often used in apartments or added to bedrooms and upstairs living room areas, they can transform a dark or dull room. Open up a small window or part of a wall and you make the most of your view and add extra daylight for a bright and spacious feeling. If you’re adding a Juliet balcony to your property, either as part of a new-build project or a renovation, the railings you choose have a significant bearing on the final appearance of your project.

What is a Frameless Juliet Balcony?
A Frameless Glass Juliet Balcony is simply a sheet of glass that provides a clear protective and highly-aesthetic barrier for a balcony on or above first-floor level.
Popular with homeowners, architects and designers, a frameless solution is an elegant, simple and highly-effective solution for all types of properties.
With no spindles or rails to block the view, the Balconette Frameless Glass Juliet balcony is an unobtrusive and secure solution for French Doors, and spans up to 3.3 metres wide.
Whether you’re renovating an existing home, adding a new extension or even self-building, why not consider a Frameless Juliet balcony to create a feeling of spaciousness and to bring in the light.

Lofty ideas from Balcony Systems – putting the finishing touch into Loft Conversions.
Loft conversions and extensions are an increasingly popular trend with homeowners seeking to add value, space and light to their homes without incurring the expense and hassle of moving.
They’re also an excellent investment: according to a recent survey by the Nationwide Building Society, adding both a bedroom and bathroom through extensions or loft conversions, in London or anywhere across the UK, can add up to 23% to a property’s value.
Many balcony areas and terraces are created above living spaces, whether on a flat roof above an extension or living space, kitchen or bedroom or on the top floor of an apartment complex.
Great attention needs to be given to sealing the balcony surface and waterproofing it.
Glass fencing is getting more and more popular, probably due to our warmer summers and the growing popularity of pools.
Fencing made of glass, is another application for the glass balustrade that is being used more and more in new builds as well as renovation projects. A glass fence is made of toughened glass that is held at the base and often also with a handrail around the top of the balustrade glass.
