A balustrade, in its traditional sense, is a railing supported by balusters, often an ornamental parapet on a balcony, bridge, or terrace. By creating bespoke balustrades for your home, from interior solutions to garden barriers and outdoor stairs, we can help you create outstanding features in your home.
Here are 5 versatile ways a balustrade can elevate your home:
Balcony balustrades and Juliet balconies
A Juliet balcony, also known as a false balcony, is a small balcony that is usually attached to a window or French doors. It provides the illusion of a full balcony without the need for a large outdoor space. Juliet balconies use a balustrade for safety, allowing you to open second story french doors and let the air flow in.
In contrast, a full balcony is a larger outdoor space that is supported by brackets or cantilevers that extend from the building. Full balconies can be made from a variety of materials, including wood, metal, and concrete. They offer more space for outdoor furniture and decor, and can be a great addition to a bedroom or living room. These will be lined with balustrades and are of course, much more of an investment than a juliet.
You might be surprised to learn that the design options for both Juliet and full balconies are endless; with the option of frameless or framed with a variety of different finishes, we can help you achieve the look that suits your home.
Glass deck panels
Another way you can incorporate balustrades into your home is by using them as room dividers. For example, you can install a balustrade to separate your living room from your dining room or to create a private workspace in your home office. Balustrades can add a touch of elegance and sophistication to your home while creating functional spaces that meet your unique needs, you can also opt for frosted glass to add a level of privacy.
Using glass balustrades in place of your traditional bannister can create a really stunning, modern feature to your home without having to compromise safety. Balustrades can be used to create unique and eye-catching design elements in your home that will impress your guests and add value to your property.
Frameless glass balustrades for internal landings
If you’re lucky enough to have a pool or large garden, balustrades can also be used to create a stylish and functional fence. Glass fence panels or garden partitions are a popular choice as they provide a modern and sleek look while still providing safety. You can also choose from a variety of materials and designs to create a fence that complements your home’s style and adds value to your property.
