Balcony makeover: railing ideas

1 year ago 0 category Inspiration & Design

The weather has finally warmed up and if spending more time outside on your balcony has you thinking about ways to renovate your space, we have some ideas for you.

Having the appropriate balcony railing is essential for safety reasons but it can be achieved without sacrificing your unique style. With many different options to choose from, you’ll be able to find something that complements your balcony within your budget.

All our railing options are durable, safe, and easy to maintain. We have an option for any size of balcony or Juliet balcony. Get inspired with the below railing ideas:

Elegant steel Juliet Balcony railings

Juliet Balcony railings are vital for raised window or door openings; they are placed across the opening to create a balcony effect. Our steel Juliet balcony railings are a more cost-effective alternative to our glass designs and are a great durable and long-lasting solution.

Compliant with building regulations, our Juliet balconies come in stock sizes and can also be made to measure. The steel Juliet balcony railings can be delivered to your door for a small charge, and the balcony railing will be delivered to you ready to be installed.

Balcony railings with black glass

Our glass balustrade railings can incorporate glass-coloured panels to not only enhance the visual appearance of your glass railings but also offer you some extra privacy. We create bespoke systems tailored to our customer’s requirements and can help you turn your vision into reality.

If you prefer maintaining your solitude from those around you, we also offer frosted and opaque glass panels for your balcony railings.

Stylish glass balustrade railings for clear views

Glass balustrade systems offer unobstructed views, a minimalistic design and are suitable as railings for balconies. Glass balconies make a fantastic addition to the outside of your home, allowing you to enjoy the sunshine and make the most of your existing space.

This way, you can relax and feel comfortable about any kids or pets running around in an open space without missing out on the view.

Glass button Juliet balcony railings

SHS Glass button Juliet balconies

The glass button Juliet balcony is perfect if you want to create the barely-there balcony effect and you are going for a more industrial modern design. The glass provides clear unobstructed views and a minimalist, sleek appearance to enhance and add value your property.

The buttons are available in several sizes and the glass thickness is typically 17.5mm or 21.5mm thick toughened laminated glass depending upon the opening size to which the Juliet will be fixed. You can also choose from clear, opaque, or coloured glass.

Sturdy Wire rope balustrade railing

The sturdy Wire Rope Balustrade System features made-to-measure stainless steel posts connected by wire rope infill and a cylindrical top rail. You can specify the number of rows you would prefer, and we’ll manufacture the system to your requirements.

We have the experience and products needed to meet your time and budget demands while assuring your design meets building regulations and your personal aesthetic needs.
