Some places in the house need to be designed to provide maximum protection for children and adults: the balcony and stairwell are the top priority. In the old buildings often turns out that they are not very safe.
The balcony railing is a must in an apartment with small children. Most of the time, the focus is on materials such as wood and metal, with modern variants of metal and glass. What roles does a high-quality, stylish railing play on your terrace?
First and foremost is safety. Usually you do not pay much attention to the exact building material. It is sufficient that the balustrade is securely fastened. A height of at least 90 centimeters is desirable.
Second is the beautiful railing as a decorative element. Whether simple or decorated, made of iron or wood, curved or angular, the design depends entirely on your style of furnishing and your personal taste. The balustrade usually has the same motif as the banister.
The workable metal as a well-chosen choice of materials is robust and ensures great safety. The designs are diverse: from simple to modern to retro charming. The balcony furniture will be adjusted accordingly.
Railing according to the type of your balcony:
For the usual balcony, the material and the actual height of the parapet are important, i. you would have to think about child safety in advance. But would a stable railing with optimum fall protection be combined with the rest of the building and living design?
The balcony railings are great as wind and privacy. Therefore, consider whether frosted glass would not be better than grids. Do you like more ornaments? With the help of glass paint, each parapet can be individually designed and made opaque. Since the railings are occasionally cleaned, a low-maintenance material and a clear design are desirable. Any flourishes will complicate your work.
French balconies serve the aesthetic, decorative goals and emphasize the style of each exterior. The choice is more with pretty design and less robustness or functionality.
Make sure that you choose the stability of your railing, which should also match the style of your home.
