Squeeze in a sweet spotI love the little second-floor balcony that’s been squeezed in at the back of this house. With large, contemporary glazed spaces on the floors below, the scale as you go up the house diminishes slowly, as if there’s a hierarchy to the building akin to its Victorian heart.Do you have a balcony or roof terrace? Tell us how you use it in the Comments below.

Top it off with a balconyThe second-floor balcony on this period property is cute, but that first-floor spot is stunning. It’s also an excellent use of space; the simple, modern extension has been utilised to the very max by turning its roof into this large first-floor balcony.Your builder or architect will be able to advise on planning and building regulations, what materials to use and the best use of space if you are hankering after something similar. But a minimum thickness of 10mm clear toughened glass is a must; some frameless glass channel systems use 17.5mm thick toughened and laminated glass panels that fit into an aluminium channel at the base or sides, with no posts or uprights whatsoever to obscure the views across the garden.

Don’t waste space when extendingMany homeowners are opting for a simple square extension at the rear of their house, creating an open-plan kitchen-diner with a seating area and bifold doors. But don’t stop there. Before you submit those plans, speak to your architect about the feasibility of using the new space above for a balcony. Here, corresponding bifold doors link the two areas, while a glass balustrade keeps the balcony feeling as open as possible.Find out what you need to consider when planning a rear extension
