What is a Juliet Balcony
The Juliet balcony – also known as a French balcony – gets its name from the famous balcony scene in Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet. Traditionally, they were made from steel and painted black, until the addition of glass made the balcony look much more aesthetically pleasing. Instead of a “walk on” balcony, Juliet balconies are simply barriers that are placed outside of a full height French door that is installed on first floors and higher – they do not lead to a balcony.
Advantages of a Juliet Balcony
Juliet balconies are becoming more and more popular for houses who have large windows and French doors on the first storey and above. So why are these balconies becoming increasingly popular to home and apartment owners?
