Why Add a Glass Juliet Balcony To Your Bedroom

If you have a compact–sized bedroom space, it’s natural for you to want to create a more open and spacious look in the room. While you can get larger windows installed, it may not always be possible and feasible to do so. Many people like the concept of having balconies leading out from various rooms of their home, but not every structure has them. If you have purchased and existing home, you don’t really have any control over what feature may or may not be there in the home.

In circumstances such as these, people wonder what they can do to make the indoor spaces of their home more airy and bright. The one feature that can solve all these problems and meet your requirements is a Glass Juliet balcony. This feature is unique in a number of ways. It sits almost flush with the exterior walls of your home and acts like a safety railing for a full length window. It’s different from a balcony in that there is no space where you can stand in (as in the case of a regular balcony).

Juliet Balcony – The Benefits

There are a number of reasons why you should opt for a Glass Juliet Balcony installation in your existing or new build; take a look at what these are:

  • A semi-framed or framed glass balcony brings in a lot of natural light into the indoor spaces of your home. This lends a very cheery atmosphere to your property.
  • Brighter indoor spaces help you maintain higher energy levels and put you in a good mood. Many people that get a Glass Juliet Balcony added are pleasantly surprised to see how much of a difference it makes to the appearance of the indoor spaces.
  • A Glass Juliet Balcony may look like a modern structure in terms of its styling; however, it blends in very well with all different types of architectural elements. This is because the structure itself has a very slim and clean profile. If you opt for a frameless or semi-framed feature, it will blend in perfectly with the exterior of your home and won’t stand out like a sore thumb like some new features do.
  • When you add any new installation in your home, you want it to be functional as well as aesthetically appealing. A Glass Juliet Balcony looks stunning and adds to the value of your property as well.
  • Since the feature is made of glass panels, the surface is very smooth. This makes it an ideal installation for homes that have kids and pets. Since the balcony is custom designed for you, you can get one that is higher than a standard railing. Neither your kids not pets will be able to clamber over it like they would over a railing made of wood or metal.
  • The installation is quick and there aren’t too many building rules to follow. This is largely because the feature sits almost flat against the exterior walls of your home; it doesn’t protrude from the outer walls like a regular balcony does.
  • Having a Juliet Balcony outside your bedroom window is a great way to frame the outside view. And so, if you have a great landscape or an excellent view, you would be able to enjoy that too.
  • The Juliet Balcony is largely made of toughened, laminated glass, which makes it a very strong and resilient installation.
  • It’s easy to maintain and will last for a number of years without any trouble.

glass balustrades for commercial or leisure settings

Why Glass Balustrades Are an Excellent Choice For Commercial Or Leisure Settings

Competition is very high in every modern day industry and business; staying on top of the game is a lot about ensuring that you provide your clients and customers the best services and products and that your premises are well-planned and designed using safe, attractive and functional installations.

The ambience of your commercial space can impact the amount of foot traffic you get and it’s always a good idea to ensure that every area of your property is well lit, open and spacious. This helps make the spaces more inviting and people will be more encouraged to stay there and patronise your business. With this aspect in view, frameless glass balustrades are an excellent installation and can complement the look of any commercial or leisure setting such as:

  • Shopping malls
  • Office buildings
  • Retail outlets
  • Spas and salons
  • Bars and cafes that have alfresco areas
  • Rooftop swimming pools in hotels
  • Restaurants with patio and deck dining spaces
  • Other

Glass balustrade installations can go a long way in turning even the most simple interior design concepts into something unique and stunning. You can choose from framed, semi-framed and frameless glass installations, based on the décor and theme, the other installations and features, as well as your personal preferences and budget.

Different Types of Glass Balustrade Installations

Since these balustrades are custom-designed for you, they will fit in perfectly into the space they are meant to be installed in. Here are some of the settings they are ideal for:

Café

If your café has a curved terrazzo space specifically for smokers, we can install curved glass balustrading there. The installation will be of the right height so as to provide safety to your customers.

Hotel

If your hotel is located in an area with a fantastic view, you want to ensure that your guests be able to enjoy the view. In this case, you can install frameless glass balustrade in guest room balcony spaces, on patio and deck dining areas as well as along the periphery of poolscapes.

Shopping Malls

These commercial establishments see a significant amount of foot traffic and it means the staircases and every level needs to have sturdy and robust railings. Most malls and large shopping centres now opt for glass balustrade installations because these are strong, and provide the segregation required, without hampering the view.

The clear glass allows a lot of natural and artificial light to pass through and this helps make the place look more cheery and bright. This kind of a lively and bright atmosphere enhances the shopping experience and helps showcase the display windows of the different stores in that mall.

Office Buildings

Today, the interior spaces of most office buildings are designed on an open floor plan. This concept is very popular and it adds to the spaciousness of even a modestly-sized office. Glass lends itself beautifully to this concept and it can be used along internal balcony and mezzanine spaces, along staircases as well as in outdoor balcony and terrace areas.

Why Opt For Glass Balustrades?

An enclosed space with concrete, metal or wood railings will only end up making the space look smaller than it really is. Since these materials are opaque, they don’t allow light to pass through and this makes the areas look darker and feel more claustrophobic too.

In comparison, glass is a versatile material and lends itself very well with different settings and complements the look of different architectural and interior design styles. You also have the option to add tinted glass, frosted or etched glass panels instead of completely clear ones. This will add to the uniqueness of the structure as well.

We at Quantum Frameless Glass provide excellent, customised glass fencing solutions for residential and commercial spaces. For any more information about our glass balustrades, call us at this number – 1300 282 248. You can also contact us using this online form.

glass railing ideas for your deck

Creative Glass Railing Ideas For Your Deck

Decks add charm and value to your property and they become a perfect relaxation and entertainment space. Most decks are built a certain height and it’s best to install a railing along the periphery of this feature. Not only does it add dimension to the installation, but to its safety as well. Property owners look for simple yet elegant railings that will be easy to maintain and durable too, and this is where glass railings or balustrades come in.

Design Ideas

These features look stunning in any type of setting and complement the look and ambience of traditional as well as contemporary home and residential designs. This means, a glass fence won’t mar the appearance of your existing deck space and there are a number of creative glass railing ideas for your deck that you can choose from, such as:

#1 Frameless Glass Balustrade With Connecting Stairs Balustrades

While some decks are hardly a foot high from ground level, others may be at a much greater height. In this case, you would have stairs leading into the yard from the upper level of the deck. It’s never a good idea to keep the edges of either the raised deck or the steps unprotected as that can lead to accidents.

Installing a frameless balustrade along the deck as well as the stairs is a good way to add some form to the structure and improve its safety. In this design, the railing that runs along the stairs is a continuation of the one that protects the deck and it provides a very seamless and clear look.

#2 Glass Balustrade For Multi-Level Deck

Some homes have multi-level decks. These could be built as standalone features around the pool or as an extension of living and bedroom spaces that are at different levels in the structure. This type of decking looks stunning and unique and you can add to their appeal by installing a semi-framed glass balustrade on them. If you prefer a more open look and want a clear view of the surroundings and landscaping, you can choose to get clear glass installations for these features. On the other hand, if you need a certain level of privacy in any of these areas (like the bedroom decks), you can opt for tinted or frosted glass panels. These semi-frameless structures are extremely resilient and will last for a number of years with very basic maintenance.

Glass Balustrades For Pool Decking

Many people like to have decks built around their swimming pools and at times these structures may have multiple levels as well. These installations can also benefit from glass balustrades and railings; they add to the safety of the deck and you don’t have to worry about your kids accidently falling off of the deck while playing or walking around the pool space.

If you also have some sunning areas on the deck near the pool, where you require some privacy, you can opt for acid-stained glass or frosted glass. If you prefer, the same type of glass panels can be used along the periphery of the decks that lead out of the living areas and connect to the multi-levelled pool deck.

Regardless of the type of glass railings, fencing or balustrades you need, we are the experts that can provide you with high-grade, custom solutions that fit in perfectly with your specific requirements. We at Quantum Frameless Glass cater to both residential and commercial customers. For any more information about our glass balustrades, call us at this number – 1300 282 248.

glass balcony balustrades

Glass Balustrading – The Perfect Addition To Your Balcony

Modern structures tend to have larger open spaces as well as open floor plans. The objective is to ensure that these areas get a larger amount of natural light and air. This is also why homeowners choose to get balcony installations leading out of bedroom spaces in their home structure.

One important aspect of any balcony is its balustrade and railing; this safety aspect has to be given due consideration and it has to be engineered well and built with high-grade weather-resistant materials. While you can opt for masonry features or ones made of wood or aluminum, none of them would be able to provide the elegance and sophistication that a glass balustrade provides.

Why Opt For Glass Balcony Balustrades?

There are a number of reasons why glass balustrading is the perfect addition to your balcony, such as:

The Design Aspect

Regardless of the architectural style of your home and the design theme of various features in the indoor and outdoor spaces of your home, a glass balustrade will always blend in. This is a trait that no other material can boast of. Glass is transparent and it’s why a balustrade made of this material can complement the look of any setting. It will add to the beauty of a classic style home as well as a more modern or contemporary structure.

Light & Openness

As mentioned earlier, most people now want their home spaces to look open and be airy and full of natural light. It’s why modern structures have such large glass windows and doors. However, if you build a balustrade made of concrete, natural stone, metal or wood on your balconies that will significantly reduce the amount of light that filters into your bedrooms. In turn this will have a negative impact on the ambience of your home. Getting glass balconies installed is one way of ensuring that as much natural light as possible filters in.

Unhindered Views

When you are sitting in your balcony or even in your bedroom, you want to be able to get an unhindered view of the landscaping or the surrounding views. This won’t be possible if you get balustrades made of traditional materials installed. Only a glass installation will provide you this open and clear view of your surroundings. If you want some privacy without compromising on the open look, you can get frosted glass panels installed. While they too will block the view, they won’t block the light and will still lend an open look to the space.

Safety

Glass may seem like a fragile material and normal glass is. However we use toughened and laminated glass panels in our frameless balustrades; this means you don’t have to worry about whether your safety will be compromised in any way. In our opinion, if you have kids or pets in your home, glass is safer than wood and metal. This is because it has very smooth surfaces, which makes it almost impossible for your children or pets to climb over the railing.

Balcony Balustrade Installation

When we handle glass balcony balustrade installation for your home, you can rest assured that it will be of the highest quality and will meet building codes. Based on the nature of the installation, the setting and your specific requirements, we use glass that’s 15mm-18mm thick, which provides you the safety you need. High-grade hardware, fittings and railings are used in the work and this adds to the integrity, resilience and longevity of the installation.

We at Quantum Frameless Glass provide excellent, customised glass balustrade solutions for residential and commercial spaces. For any more information about our glass balustrades, call us at this number – 1300 282 248. You can also contact us using this online form.

glass fencing for garden and yard spaces

Different Ways in Which Glass Fencing Can Be Used in Garden and Yard Spaces

The garden spaces of your home lend openness and greenery to your property, and it’s why you hire professionals to design and plan these spaces for you. If these areas are demarcated well and the right kind of installations are used in the work, that can add to the beauty and functionality of your yard.

The one common way to segregate garden and yard areas effectively is to build half-height walls along the periphery of outdoor installations such as the swimming pool, the outdoor kitchen, patio, deck etc. You can also install edging along the lawn and flower bed areas to protect them from being accidently trampled upon. The pathways and walkways can also be lined with brick or concrete walls and this ensures that no one will stamp on the plantings and shrubs that line these features.

While all of these are good options, any kind of masonry structure is opaque and very solid in appearance. All these installations would be able to demarcate the required spaces; but they also make the space look smaller and constricted. The one way to circumvent this problem is to get glass fencing installed in the outdoor spaces of your property.

Glass Fences – Different Applications

Glass fences are now becoming the installation of choice on residential as well as commercial properties. Take a look at the different ways in which these features can be incorporated into the design and aesthetic of the landscaped areas of your home:

Swimming Pool

Many homes have swimming pools and it’s important that these installations have the right kind of fencing around them. It’s the best way to prevent accidents from happening and a fence lends a neat look to the space as well. A frameless glass fence with a complementing glass gate will provide the safety and segregation you need without affecting the openness of the yard. In fact, if you have a modestly-sized yard, it will definitely benefit from a glass fence installation.

Outdoor Features

Most homes have features such as a deck, patio or an outdoor kitchen and glass fencing or balustrades can create a distinctive look around these installations. Even when you are sitting in your outdoor kitchen space or on the deck or patio, you would be able to enjoy an unhindered view of the landscape. Adding a gate to the glass fence increases its safety aspect and you can easily let your kids and pets play in this space.

Driveway, Pathways and Walkways

You can also install glass fencing all along the walkways and pathways in your garden. This is an excellent way to prevent anyone from trampling on the plantings and lawn spaces. When glass is used to demarcate these spaces, it doesn’t impact the design and theme of the yard or garden, as it is transparent, unlike masonry features that are made of stone, concrete and brick.

Fireplace and Fire Pit Areas

Many homes have standalone fireplace and fire pit installations. You can create cosy nooks anywhere in your yard for these features, by installing glass fencing around these elements.

As you can see, glass fencing can be used in a number of ways in your garden and yard areas. We will work closely with you to understand what your requirements are, and then provide features that work best for you.

We at Quantum Frameless Glass provide excellent, customised glass fencing solutions for residential and commercial spaces. For any more information about our glass balustrades, call us at this number – 1300 282 248. You can also contact us using this online form.

glass balustrades for deck and patio installations

Types Of Glass Balustrades for Deck and Patio Installations

Spring and summer are the perfect seasons to enjoy the outdoor spaces of your property to the fullest. You don’t have to worry about rain or a nip in the air and can truly enjoy these features and the leisure and entertainment aspects they offer. Many homeowners also like to undertake home improvement projects and sprucing up the look of their deck and patio spaces are a great option.

These areas see a significant amount of wear and tear as they are exposed to the weather, and they are used with regularity as well. This means any feature or addition to them has to be planned and thought out well. If you are looking to add to the functionality and attractiveness of your yard, you should consider getting a glass balustrade installation for your patio or deck.

Deck Glass Balustrade Features

  • Since decks are raised structures, adding a glass balustrade is a great way to enhance its safety.
  • You can also add a glass gate at the top of the steps that lead down from the deck to the yard and this enclosure can become the perfect spot for your kids or pets to play in.
  • Since the glass panels are smooth (unlike wood or aluminium railings), your children or pets won’t be able to clamber over them. So, you can still relax in the alfresco spaces without having to constantly keep an eye on them.
  • You can decide what kind of installation you want and can choose from frameless, semi-framed or framed features.
  • You also have the option to choose the kind of glass you want, in the thickness you need.

Patio Glass Balustrade Features

Decks are also a very popular feature on residential properties in and around Sydney. While some homeowners like to keep the structure simple and don’t add anything to it, others prefer to turn it into a semi-enclosed space; they may build an outdoor kitchen on it or install a pergola to create a semi-shaded space underneath it. These options enhance the utility of the space. While homeowners do want to make better use of this space, they may not always want to build half-height walls to demarcate the patio space as the masonry installation can hamper the flow of the space and the open feel. The one way to have your cake and eat it too, is to get a glass balustrade installed along the periphery of your patio. This will still allow you to create the segregation you want, without impacting the expansive look of your patio. You can still be seated on the patio and enjoy an unhindered view of your landscape.

Excellent Glass Balustrade Installations

We work very closely with our clients to understand what their specific requirements are and ensure that the glass balustrade we install is right in line with the design concept and theme of the other features in the landscape. The best materials will be used in the work and the craftsmanship will be top-of-the-line. This means you can rest assured that your glass balustrade installation will last for a very long time, with just very little maintenance.

As mentioned earlier, summer is the perfect time to get some simple yet effective upgrades for your home. A glass balustrade for your patio or deck is a great way to enhance the appeal and functionality of your yard space. We at Quantum Frameless Glass provide excellent, customised glass balustrade solutions for residential and commercial spaces.

frameless glass balustrades for your outdoor kitchen

Frameless Glass Balustrade Design For Your Outdoor Kitchen

If you are planning on getting an outdoor kitchen installed on your patio, it’s a great way to make optimal use of the available space. An outdoor kitchen becomes the perfect setting for those weekend BBQ parties you have with your family or dinner parties you organise for friends.

While getting an outdoor kitchen installed in this space is an excellent idea, you have to plan it well; ensure you use the available space in the best possible way and that any feature you add is functional, aesthetically appealing and that it adds to the value of your home. While many people like outdoor kitchens, they don’t like the fact that the half-height walls create a solid feature that blocks the view of the landscaping and surrounding areas.

An outdoor kitchen is a transitional space and the idea is to use it functionally without hampering the flow of spaces and design elements. The one way to get all this and more is to opt for glass balustrading. This has become a very popular feature and is used in residential and commercial spaces to great effect.

Frameless Glass Balustrade – Different Aspects To Consider

While a glass balustrade may seem like a simple enough structure, it’s a specialised feature that should be installed by professionals. There are a number of aspects that have to be taken into account when frameless glass balustrades are being designed for your outdoor kitchen setting:

The Available Space

The experts that you hire for the job will come and survey the space. They need to ensure that the balustrade installation will have a solid base to be fitted on. They will also check whether there is are steady wall surfaces at the end, where the balustrades can be anchored.

The Type of Balustrade

Today, there are a number of different types of balustrades to choose from such as framed, semi-framed and frameless. The one you choose will be based on your preferences, the design of the other installations in your home as well as the architectural styling of your home. Since glass is transparent, it rarely ever clashes with any home design or interior design concept. In fact, it fits in perfectly and adds a cohesive look to the space.

Glass Thickness

You can choose between glass panels that range in thickness from 10mm-18mm and more (if required). If you are more comfortable with having thicker glass installed, you can inform the balustrade company about it, and they will use that material. It’s a good idea to opt for toughened and laminated glass as this will mean it is less prone to breaking on impact.

Light and Openness

There are times when people get an outdoor kitchen built on their patio, but then find that the adjacent indoor living space becomes a little darker. This problem can easily be solved by adding a glass balustrade installation. You can choose to get clear glass installed, without any etching or other embellishments; this allows more natural light into the indoor areas of the home.

Privacy and Safety

If these are the aspects you are focusing on, you may want to consider getting half-height, frosted glass panels installed in the balustrade. These will still bring in a certain amount of light and an airy feel into your outdoor kitchen, and provide you the privacy you want. They are an excellent option for homes that are located in a very busy neighbourhood or ones that have an adjacent property very close to theirs.

aspects of glass balustrade systems

Some Aspects of Glass Balustrade Systems

Today, it’s common to see glass balustrade systems in the indoor and outdoor spaces of commercial and residential structures and they lend a very distinctive look to the property. While these installations look very modernistic and complement the look of different types of architecture, the concept of balustrades is centuries old.

Balustrades In the Past

These features were first used in various buildings when the Roman Empire built great structures to house royalty and wealthy people of their time. The balustrades of that period were very different from the slick glass and metal features we see today. Those balustrades we typically made of natural stone and installed in the interior and outdoor spaces of mansions.

Over the decades, the design concepts of these elements evolved and the current day balustrade systems are stunning installations made of large panels of toughened and laminated glass panels. These could be framed, semi-framed or frameless installations that can be custom-designed to match the appearance and functionality requirements of the setting they are to be installed in.

When you start looking for different balustrade systems, you will find there are a large number of options to choose from and this is why it’s important to ensure that the system you choose is built specifically for your project.

How Glass Balustrades Enhance Interior and Exterior Spaces

  • Residential glass balustrade systems may not need the same thickness of glass that commercial balustrades require. However an internal glass balustrade and railing system can uplift the look of you home.
  • There are times when staircase landings are in interior spaces of a structure. If you install concrete, natural stone or metal balustrades here they will end up blocking the light. On the other hand, when you install a glass balustrade, it brings in a significant amount of light into these spaces and creates a sense of openness and space.
  • Modern day architecture and interior design concepts lean very heavily on linear and crisp concepts and themes. Glass has a very modernistic, yet classic and clean look and complements the appearance of these structures.
  • If you have a compact or modestly sized bedroom with considerably small windows, adding a Juliet balcony is one way of opening up the space. This feature looks like a regular balcony but is more like an addition that requires far less space, construction time and resources.
  • Many people like to add the safety factor to their patios and raised decks by adding a frameless glass balustrade. It’s not too difficult to add a glass gate to lend a complete look to the feature. These spaces are enclosed but don’t look that way since the glass panels allow you to enjoy the beauty and openness of the outdoor spaces, without compromising on the security factor.
  • Many people take this concept one step further and also get glass fencing installed around their poolscapes. This adds to the charm of the property and the open spacious look gets carried through in all the outdoor spaces.

Custom Designed Glass Balustrade Solutions

When you are getting a glass balustrade installed, you should hire the services of expert and experienced contractors that would be able to work closely with you, understand what your requirements are and then provide customised solutions that fit into your budget and match the architectural and design concepts on your property.

We work closely with you, offer suitable options and solutions at pricing that fits right into your budget. For any more information about our glass balustrades, call us at this number – 1300 282 248. You can also contact us using this online form.

glass balustrades for flat roofs

Add Functionality To Your Flat Roof With a Glass Balustrade

Many modern-styled homes have flat roofs. While these features look very stylistic and add elegance to the home’s appearance, these spaces can’t be used optimally and safely unless they have some type of railing or balustrade. If you install a balustrade made either of vinyl timber or aluminium those can provide safety, but won’t allow you to a clear and unhindered view of the surroundings. This is where a glass balustrade is different – it’s a perfect installation for a house that has flat roofing.

Glass Balustrades For Flat Roofs

There are a number of benefits to adding a frameless glass balustrade to your flat roof:

  • It complements the look of different types of architectural styles.
  • Once the balustrade has been installed along the perimeter, you will be able to use the space in a more optimal manner. In fact, if you have large French windows or doors opening out onto this area, from the rooms that overlook the roof, that can add to the expansiveness of these connecting spaces.
  • Glass balustrading brings in more natural light and adds a feeling of openness to your home.
  • You can choose to get the balustrade added as part of your new home build project, or turn it into a home improvement project as well.
  • The design and styling can be customised to your requirement and you can choose from framed, semi-framed or frameless installations. There are different varieties of hardware and railings to choose from and this gives you the design flexibility to create the look you want on your property.
  • The added living area that gets created by installing a glass balustrade to your roof also adds to the value of your home and increases its resale value.
  • If you live in a busy neighbourhood, you can add frosted glass panels to the balustrade. This will acts as a privacy screen without hampering the natural light and the open feel of the space.
  • When you are getting any feature installed in the outdoor areas of your home, you want to ensure that it will be able to withstand the climatic changes and last for a number of years. When we install these outdoor balustrades for you, we use toughened, laminated glass in the feature and this adds to the strength, resilience and longevity of the structure.
  • The other aspect that busy homeowners want to prioritise is that any installation they have on their property should be low maintenance; glass balustrades don’t need too much maintenance and an occasional cleaning with diluted soap water is all it takes to keep them looking sparkling clean. In comparison, metal, timber or vinyl balustrades require a lot of consistent care to prevent them from deteriorating.
  • These balustrades are good for homes with children and pets. You can choose higher installations; since the glass panels have smooth surfaces, kids and pets can’t clamber over them. This makes it a truly safe feature.
  • Glass balustrades can be made as simple or stylistic as you want them to be. For instance you can choose from semi-translucent or opaque glass finishes or ones of different tints and more.

Make the Right Choice

Depending on how much use that space is going to see, you can choose from glass panels of different thicknesses ranging from 12mm to 21.5mm. To a certain degree the thickness of glass used in the installation will also be dependent on whether you have chosen to get a handrail installed or not

interesting ways to add glass balustrades

3 Interesting Ways To Add Glass Balustrades To Your New Build Home

When you are building a new home, you want it to look distinctive and unique; even more than that, you want it to have character. The latter aspect is about adding special features that will be functional as well as aesthetically appealing. As a homeowner, you want to be able to make maximum use of the available space and take advantage of the view from your home.

You also want your home to be airy and bright and all the rooms to look cheery and spacious. While the floor plan of every floor and the design and architecture play a very important role in the aesthetic of your home, there are certain features that will lend a very unique look to your property. Adding glass balustrades offers a number of advantages and there are various applications these can be used in such as:

#1 Interior Glass Balustrades

Just as you want the exterior design of your home to look distinctive and different from the rest of the homes in your neighbourhood, you also want the interior spaces to look stunning in every way. Installing a glass balustrade on your landings as well as the staircase can add dimension to the most simply designed and compact interior spaces.

It makes the area look brighter as they allow natural light to filter through, add safety to these features and create very stylish interiors. Glass balustrades are very simplistic and elegant at the same time; since glass is transparent, it complements the look of different types of interior design concepts. You can choose from semi-framed, framed or frameless glass balustrades that fit into your budget.

#2 Deck Balustrades

Based on the design of your home and your personal preferences, you can add different types of decks to your home. If the space and architecture of your home lends itself to raised decking, the feature is a great way of creating the perfect open entertainment and relaxation spot. While a raised deck adds to the character of your home, it’s important to add some sort of railings along the periphery; glass balustrades serve the purpose very well. You are also able to enjoy the view while you are seated on the deck and don’t have to worry too much about safety when your kids are playing there. You can also get a complementing glass gate installed at the head of the stairs that lead down into the yard, from the raised decking.

#3 Juliet Balcony

Many urban townhouses have a small footprint and are more tall than wide. They also have very limited outdoor spaces. Home builders look for ways and means of adding brightness to the interior spaces and incorporate large windows in the structure. The other way to add openness to the interior spaces is to install Juliet balconies outside the windows of bedrooms on the upper storeys.

They bring in plenty of fresh air and natural light. In these applications too you can choose from custom-made semi-framed, framed or frameless structures. They add the perfect touch to any type of home architecture and increase the value of your property.
