Juliet balcony is a shallow balcony which plays the role of a balustrade on the top floor of a building. They are commonly known as the Julietes. They are installed on the inner side of doors to prevent one from falling off from the height created by the construction of French doors. They also give a clear view of the outside from inside the rooms.
