A dormer with balcony is just what it sounds like – a dormer window that has an external balcony. This type of window can add a lot of value to your property, as well as extra living space. In this blog post, we will discuss the benefits of adding a dormer window with balcony to your home, as well as how to go about doing it.
One of the main benefits of adding a dormer window with balcony to your home is the extra living space it can provide. This is especially beneficial if you live in a smaller home or apartment, as the extra space can be used for anything from a home office to an extra bedroom. Not only does this add value to your property, but it also makes your home more functional and liveable.
Another benefit of adding a dormer window with balcony is the increased natural light it can bring into your home. If you live in an area with limited sunlight, this addition can really brighten up your space and make it feel more open and airy. Additionally, the added height of the window will also give you better views of your surroundings.
Types of dormer balconies
- Juliet balcony: these are the most affordable dormer balcony styles. It can be as simple as a metal railing across the opening. Installation doesn’t require much additional work and they can still give you that extra space and light.
- Fixed eternal balcony: These can be constructed projecting from the roof, giving you a larger area to use. The balcony floor and doors can also be set into an opening that’s been cut into the roof slope. You’ll most likely need planning permission though.
- Feature Velux balcony: there are a few options to choose from. For example, a VELUX grouped window system where groups of windows are stacked vertically, allowing for more light to come into the room. A VELUX cabrio fold out balcony system is where two windows are stacked vertically up the slope of the roof. A VELUX roof terrace system gives you two window elements; one sloping and another vertical. They can be grouped together as well, for a custom balcony solution.
If you’re interested in adding a dormer window with balcony to your home, the first step is to consult with a qualified contractor. They will be able to assess your specific needs and help you plan for the project. Additionally, they can also give you an estimate of the costs involved so that you can budget accordingly.
Once you have a plan in place, the next step is to start construction! This type of addition can be fairly simple to execute, but it’s always best to leave it to the professionals.
