A Juliet balcony is a type of small, decorative balcony that projects out from a building's wall without a railing or enclosure. It is often designed as a decorative feature, with a railing or balustrade that does not provide a physical barrier or fall protection. Named after the famous balcony scene in William Shakespeare's play "Romeo and Juliet", Juliet balconies are often found in residential and commercial buildings, particularly in traditional or classical architectural styles. Juliet balconies are often used as an alternative to full-sized balconies in situations where space is limited or a railing or physical barrier is not required. They can provide additional light, ventilation, and a connection to the outdoors. However, they are not typically designed to be used for standing or sitting, and they do not provide fall protection.
