This is likely what you envision when someone says the word ‘balcony’. With a deck floor and railings, it’s the perfect outdoor space. It’s big enough to be walked on and it’ll be able to hold furniture. If you’re dreaming of warm summer evenings sat outside with a glass of wine, then this is the balcony for you.
Faux balconies are not actually real balconies at all. Instead they are just made to look like they are. They’ll have a rail but no actual floor, meaning that it’s impossible to stand on it. This type of balcony is ideal for if you want to make your house look a bit more interesting on the exterior, but you’re not bothered about actually having the outdoor space.
This type of balcony has a rail and only a small bit of decking. The point of a false balcony is to make a room feel more open and light. There will likely be enough room for if you want to grow any plants or herbs. False balconies are commonly found on apartment buildings, but they could work just as well on your house.
These balconies are found inside your house. There will usually be a large deck and railings- it’s basically the same as a true balcony, except that it’s indoors. A mezzanine balcony is the perfect way to create a cosy corner in your home, as well as a good way of making it feel like there’s more room.
