Internal balustrade adds ‘wow’ factor

Home design consultant Alexa Collins chose glass and aluminium balustrading from Balcony Systems to make a dramatic, light-enhancing statement inside her self-build five-bed Buckinghamshire home.

Glass balustrade forms an internal balcony around a central ‘double-height’ area at the back of the house. “It’s the ‘wow factor’ of the house, linking the upstairs and downstairs while reflecting the open-plan nature of the house. I had considered structural glass, but Balcony’s anodised aluminium handrail gives a better feeling of security and matches the interior décor,” says Alexa.

“The balustrade is much-admired by all who see it and people rush up to it. They feel safe leaning over and having a chat. It’s so solid and well put together.”

Alexa surveyed and measured for the balustrade herself, adding: “Balcony’s technical guys were marvellous and their advice made the installation as smooth as possible.”
