5 Ways you Can Use Glass in your Home
Of course, we all have an element of glass in our homes, thanks to the windows and doors, but there are other, innovative ways that glass can be incorporated into the home. There isn’t much an experienced glazier cannot do with glass, and with that in mind, here are a few ways that you can add some glass to your living space.
- Glass Balustrades – While balustrades are there for safety reasons, solid timer rails can break up the look of a room or hallway, and with seamless glass balustrade systems in Perth from an established glazier, you can add a feature to your home. Smooth glass with no visible fittings really does look good in a modern setting, plus, of course, there is no maintenance needed with glass, just the odd clean. There is a choice between seamless or semi-framed balustrades, and with a professional installation, there’s little that can go wrong.
- Glass Shower Screens – Make your bathroom stand out with seamless glass shower screens, and there are many different designs and finishes, which allow you to create something unique. You might prefer a frosted finish, or perhaps engraved panels, and by talking to your local glazier, you will have a clearer idea of what is possible with shower screens. Take a look at the supplier’s catalogue and you will see you have a lot of designs to choose from, and he can usually work to the client’s budget.
- Glass Splashbacks – In the kitchen and bathroom, made to measure glass splashbacks will protect the walls, while adding an attractive layer that is also very functional. An online search will reveal the whereabouts of your local glazier and he would have an extensive catalogue of splashback styles, all professionally fitted and under guarantee.
- Glass Tables – The ultimate in style and elegance, a made to measure glass table will certainly add some glamour to any home. They are very easy to keep clean, which is important for hygienic reasons, and you get to choose the size and shape of the table top. A glass table top goes well with a stainless-steel frame, ideal for the modern setting.
- Glass Pool Fencing – The pool fencing must obviously be present, and the good thing about glass is that you can see inside the pool area, which is an advantage over timber or metal. The gate would be positioned in the best location, and your pool would comply with state laws that govern pool safety. There must be no gaps exceeding 100mm, and that includes the space between the ground and the bottom of the fencing, and the installation team would be familiar with the state law on pool fencing.
If you take a look around a futuristic home, you will be pleasantly surprised to see that glass is used extensively throughout the home, and the above are just a few ways to introduce glass to the home. This would be a permanent solution that would not require maintenance, plus you won’t have to worry about corrosion.
