The parapet refers to the protective and stylish mini railing that runs along the edge of the roof, terrace, or balcony. It provides privacy and protects the residents against the risk of falling. As an extension of the exterior walls, parapet wall designs contribute to the overall aesthetic of the house design. Modern-day architects are open to experimenting with creative elements when it comes to designing the house's parapet wall to enhance the beauty of the exterior and provide the home with a sophisticated transformation. Here, we have brought you some ideas for perfect parapet wall designs that can protect your home smartly. Have a look!  

1. Classy and in sync with the traditional style

The curves of the house complement the simplicity of the steel parapet acting as a protective wall. The roof has a solid concrete parapet wall that is quite traditional in appearance and has a classy look that is perfectly in sync with the house's classic style.

2. Unity in diversity




Above the faux wooden ceiling, the mini concrete wall merges with the stone wall, lending a stylish touch to the traditional parapet. The iron rod running all over provides sturdy support as well as contrast to the plastered parapet. The stone covered parapet has a simple plastered edge to add uniformity. The glass parapet of the first-floor balcony gels with the modern architecture of the bungalow, making it look elegant.

3. Lines and angles in the parapet wall

The interesting lines and angles used to create the parapet wall decorating this house give it a unique presence. The slanting concrete wall and metal fencing fixed below merge to create an eye-catching design that attracts attention with its creativity and simplicity.

4. Different style and shades of the parapet wall

Mauve, white, wood, and beige – four different shades adorn the modern house's facade wall, making it vibrantly beautiful and attractive. The parapet wall's colour and texture are kept the same as the exterior wall to bring uniformity to the design of this bright and beautiful modern Indian home.

5. Majestic combination of steel and concrete
