Juliet balconies have long been popular in Europe and in cities where space is at a premium, like New York. In recent years, however, they have become more popular throughout North America. Traditional balconies often provide additional outdoor living space, making it seem that tiny Juliet balconies add little value to a home. This could not be further from the truth.
Juliet balconies come in a variety of styles, including some that create a shallow projection from the exterior of the building that may or may not be large enough to step out on. Many newer Juliet balconies involve a railing placed on the exterior of a building and have no projection at all. These railings are placed in front of sliding or inward-swinging double or single panel doors, which can be opened, letting light and air into a living space.
