Balconies and Verandas

image 1In the Regency period decorative ironwork seen in balconies became very popular. At this time ironwork was being mass produced and ordered from catalogues.

Ironwork continued to be used in the Victorian properties with balconies on the first floor in front of the popular french windows. Ironwork was also seen in outside rooms called verandas which were often found in larger houses or villas.

Edwardians loved their balconies. They increased in size so that they stretched across several windows. The larger houses used them as an area to enjoy the sun or even as a loggia - an open air sleeping room. Balconies were made from wrought iron or carved white wood.
