Want to transform your garden this summer? If you want to add a touch of elegance and chic to your garden then a Juliet balcony would be a perfect addition to your outdoor area.
A Juliet balcony is a stylish way to section off a seating area or a barrier for sliding doors. There are different types of Juliet balconies like the easy view balcony, framed Juliet balcony, framed & frameless. They are the perfect home improvement to the home and investment. The glass lets in the natural light into an area of your home, whilst also providing a perfect mix of an indoor and outdoor space.
Typically you can expect to see outdoor glass balustrades on balconies. Most conventional balconies need a protective barrier to stop people from falling off them, and a great deal of natural light is often blocked off. With glass balustrades, however, this isn’t a problem because the transparent glass allows plenty of natural sunlight to flow through it, and into the home behind.
If you have a concrete or wooden balustrade it can be difficult to clean them because the materials are so abrasive and sensitive. With wood, for example, getting stubborn stains off may be tough, yet you couldn’t rub too hard in case you damaged the wood. With concrete, it can be tough to see where the dirt actually is. With glass, however, any marks are instantly visible, and they can instantly be cleaned away with minimal effort. All you need is a spot of warm soapy water and a squeegee, and in a matter of seconds the glass will once again be gleaming and it will look better than ever, especially in the sunshine.
Make Areas Appear Spacious
Another great benefit of outdoor glass balustrades is the fact that they can open up areas and can make them appear more spacious. If you had a concrete balcony, for example, the solid walls on either side would make it look and feel as if you were boxed in, and could make the area appear claustrophobic and smaller than it actually is. The glass, however, as it is transparent, opens out spaces and makes them look and feel larger than they actually are.
Glass balustrades are made from incredibly thick glass that would be virtually impossible to crack or break by normal everyday standards. Because of this, it is very durable and hard-wearing, meaning that basically, it could last a lifetime with minimal maintenance. Wood obviously rots and fades and is damaged by the elements, as is metal and concrete, whereas glass, other than getting slightly dusty, which can easily be resolved, remains in near perfect condition.
