When you're greeted by a custom screened-in front porch with Union Jack stick-style balustrades, it's hard not to fall for this Georgia home.
The balustrades on the upper balcony of this Chicago home beautifully echo the Union Jack design.
Well-designed balustrades obviously contribute to the exterior appearance of a home, but they can also do wonders for the interior aesthetic when you can see them from the inside.
Balustrades are combined with square spindles here to keep the rail system from being too busy and to let the natural beauty of the waterfront environment shine through.
Ground-level porch columns align with upper-balcony newel posts to create a uniform exterior facade here. The Union Jack balustrades help to make the second-story balcony feel very open.
Union Jack balustrades are a perfect fit for this home and its gambrel roofline.
