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.

The Future is Here
Seeing the sun stream through your windows is one of the best ways to start your day. Unless of course your glass isn’t looking its best. Watermarks, dust and grime really show up in the sunshine. Instead of enjoying your day, you end up calling a window cleaner or getting out the ladder and cleaning the windows yourself.

Balcony Systems Defined
Balcony systems is a term that is used a lot but can mean many things.
First of all, let’s define a balcony. This is “a platform enclosed by a wall or balustrade on the outside of a building, with access from an upper-floor window or door”. So, in simple words, it is the floor and the low wall sitting on that floor, sticking out from a building for people to walk out onto.

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.

Embrace the Sunshine this Spring with a Glass Juliet Balcony
Don’t you just love spring? Open your windows and doors to the outside world; let in the sweet-smelling air and blow away the cobwebs as you hear birds singing happily in budding trees.
Spring is the time when your Juliet balcony comes into its own again. What better way to breathe life back into a bedroom or apartment than to open your doors wide and inhale the mild spring air as the sunshine floods through.
