Ensuring adequate natural illumination, whether via a Velux or a dormer window, is critical to make the room as habitable as possible. A balcony is another fantastic approach to increase natural light while also adding a beautiful and unique element to the renovation. There is no better way to take in the views from your new loft conversion than by installing a balcony to stand on, whether with a morning coffee or in the evening air. Because of the additional light provided by the greater window area, the loft seems larger and opens out into an airy and pleasant living environment. Balconies are growing more and more in demand in the UK, maybe due to the warmer, more protracted summers we've witnessed over the last several years, and represent a big selling factor when it comes
There are four basic varieties of balconies to select from: A raised platform is the most classic appearing style of the balcony where there is a distinct platform extending out from the main structure with a door leading to it and some sort of balustrade around the perimeter. A rooftop balcony is a flat roof with a door and a balustrade around the perimeter. A window balcony is a sort of roof light that is installed between the rafters of a roof (often as part of a loft conversion) and opens to produce a platform and railing large enough for a person to stand or sit on. A Juliet balcony is essentially a set of double doors with a railing across them that allows a lot of air and light into a room above ground level while preventing the occupant from going outside.
Some balconies are better suited to specific locations, such as a window balcony, which can only be erected on a sloping roof. A rooftop balcony can only be erected on a level roof, so if you want to add a single-story expansion, you might reach the roof from a first-floor room. With a loft conversion, you may get access via a dormer or mansard in a double-height expansion. A Bi-Fold balcony is created by removing the upper half of one wall of a room and replacing it with a series of linked windows that can be opened and folded away together at one end, allowing the remaining wall to function as a railing and transforming the entire space into a balcony.
This may already have been handled if the balcony is part of a larger loft conversion. Consult a surveyor or an expert craftsman to determine if any proposed balcony extension requires the removal of load-bearing materials, as well as whether the roof is in good enough condition to sustain any planned work. If not, reinforcements may be required. If planning permission or structural issues prevent you from having a ‘true balcony’ or another protruding type, a Juliet balcony is generally always an option.
