Frameless balustrades and Juliet balcony in Berkhamsted

You don't have to be a love struck Romeo to appreciate our fantastic Juliet balconies; they can be appreciated for many more reasons than Shakespeare intended.

Why have a Juliet balcony?

A Juliet balcony allows you to appreciate the outdoors from the comfort of your home; Juliet balconies are great for properties that have modern and traditional styles. Due to their simplicity and versatility, Juliet balconies are a fantastic way to enhance your home.

Our clients in Berkhamsted decided to have a Juliet balcony for a number of reasons. The main purpose of their Juliet Balcony was to incorporate more natural sunlight and fresh air into their living space, as it provided an opportunity to extend the room into the outdoors.

By adding a Juliet balcony to their Berkhamsted home, they added character and made a bold architectural statement that increased the beauty and undoubtedly increased the kerb appeal of their property should they decide to sell.

Why are they called a Juliet Balcony?

The Juliet balcony is without doubt inspired by the famous Shakespeare play, Romeo and Juliet. During the play, Juliet stands at her window whilst speaking to Romeo. Although there is no mention of a balcony during the play, the Juliet balcony is forever connected to the bard's masterpiece. However, whenever we see an adaptation of the Shakespeare play, Juliet is nearly always calling down to her Romeo from a balcony. Juliet balconies became popular in the United Kingdom during the Georgian period, after their growing popularity in Europe during the 18th and 19th centuries.

You don't require planning permission for a Juliet balcony

Another benefit of Juliet balconies is that they don't require planning permission due to being classified as a permitted development. For example, a homeowner can replace a window with French doors and have a Juliet balcony railing installed very easily.

A toughened glass Juliet balcony for beauty and safety

A toughened glass Juliet balcony tends to be used to deliver a thoroughly modern style to your home. Our Juliet balconies are not only stylish and beautiful, they are practical too. So many properties, particularly apartments above the first floor and the upper rooms of houses can become very hot during the warmer months. Opening a small window may offer some respite, but a French door will allow far more fresh air in, but this raises safety concerns when above the ground floor. A Juliet balcony offers a clear barrier to prevent dogs and children from falling when the door is opened. Having French doors fully opened with a Juliet balcony can turn s stifling hot room into a comfortable airy living space easily.

Frameless balustrades are perfect for balconies and patios

Frameless balustrades are modern and stylish. They offer a clean, simple and unobtrusive addition to any balcony or raised patio. They even transform a decked area like nothing else can.

Toughened glass balustrades deliver a minimalist open air look, with an almost seamless look that will elevate your property beyond your wildest dreams.

Clear glass balustrades improve and preserve whatever view you have, unlike traditional balustrades that can block the majority of the available view. Our client in Berkhamsted had a wonderful view that they can now enjoy to its full potential. The slim line profile of frameless balustrades mean that you can maximise the usable footprint of your balcony or patio.

A frameless balustrade can work in many environments

Frameless balustrades are incredibly popular for roof terraces, raised patios and decked areas. They are particularly useful as a beautiful surround to water features such as ponds and offer an added safety barrier too. Our Berkhamsted clients had a sloping garden with terraced areas, and the frameless balustrades complimented this environment perfectly.

Frameless balustrades for safety

Our frameless balustrades are extremely safe and very robust, like all our architectural glazing. Frameless toughened glass balustrades are certified and tested to very high safety standards. Because they're designed to provide fall protection, they are made with toughened load-resistant safety glass. Although we specialise in frameless balustrades, we do make balustrades with handrails too, just let us know what look and feel you are looking for and we'll be happy to help.

So, if you would like to enjoy a stylish Juliet balcony or a frameless balustrade like our Berkhamsted clients, simply drop us a line and we will get in touch to help you realise your properties full potential.

Kitchen Splashback in Hitchin by Artist Johanna Wood

We templated, supplied and installed the glass, and then the artist Johanna Wood painted the splashbacks. The result looks amazing with intricate details which create a bespoke design.

Kitchen Splashback with Mirror Line, Newmarket

This splashback was painted in Ellis Ikon Azure. We also added a mirrored line through the splashbacks which is quite popular. The customer can choose the position and quantity of the lines and also the thickness so can avoid sockets etc.


LED Backlit Splashback, Royston

With a artistic design printed on the back of the glass very lightly, we are able to achieve the design without a light backing but also achieve illumination in various lights through the LED strips installed in a track behind the glass. With a colour wheel on the remote control for the LED Lights, the customer now has an unlimited choice of colours and brightness for his splashback.

Wine Room, Roydon

Working alongside Brandt Kitchens we installed the glass for this beautiful Wine Room in Roydon. By fitting the very large 10mm Glass Panels on the outside, we painted black borders around the glass to hide any hardware and give a nice edge to the glass. The glass works were then finished with matching Black Hinges and a Black Handle.

Full Shower Enclosure, Surrey

We installed this Glass Shower Enclosure towards the end of 2018. With the 10mm glass sitting in the grooves of the marble shower pan, there is a real sleek and seamless look to the enclosure. We had the entrance to the enclosure CNC'd for a nice smooth finish and all chrome hardware to match the rest of the bathroom.
