Whether you’re building from scratch or completely overhauling a home, adding a balcony is a great way to embrace the outdoors and boost your space at the same time. A balcony package makes this as simple as it gets…

Breathtaking balconies

Whether it’s a classically elegant Juliet to open up your home, or something cantilevered that lets you maximise your living space, balconies are a wonderful addition to any building. BalconyLife specialise in these, allowing you to transform your design with something that helps to blur the lines between indoor and outdoor spaces.

Juliet balconies are a cost-effective way to add a real touch of class to areas where you don’t want a full balcony, especially when paired with French doors. Open them up on a sunny day and enjoy the vistas from your safe and secure Juliet.

Open up your space

With a cantilevered balcony, you can boost the amount of space you have while also providing a transition from interior to exterior. Perfect for lounges and bedrooms, you can have your own space for al fresco breakfasts, enjoy the sunshine and even have a barbecue. The Vista View Balcony, with its glass balustrade, affords you the perfect view.

BalconyLife’s range has different sizes and styles so you can incorporate the best balcony for your needs or those of your client. Different materials, frameless glass to maximise sight-lines, privacy panels, toughened safety glass, decking options and a wide range of colours give you ultimate flexibility to get the balcony you want.

Simple installation

BalconyLife are bolt-on specialists, meaning that they personally manufacture and supply their range, and that the balconies can be installed simply. If you’re building an extension or even the entire home, they offer design co-ordination that includes expert technical support.

Your balcony will be delivered at the stage you want it, and they’re able to answer any questions about how installation works with the structure of your building. The packages also include all the essential elements such as building connections and Insula structural thermal breaks.

It’s an approach that simplifies one of the most desirable modern home elements – a beautiful balcony that makes the most of your outdoor space and connects it with your inside.
