Some Practical Ways to Use Glass in Your Home Decor
Here are some ideas that you can use to uplift your home interior with glass application.
- Sliding glass panels
- Glass walls
- Glass in bathrooms
- Glass ceiling
- Glass railing(s)
Sliding Glass Panels
Conventionally, glass was only used to fill up the frames of doors and windows. However, the norms of modern architecture have gone one step further in terms of using glass in home construction. As a result, the trend of sliding glass panels in modern homes has picked up the pace. Sliding from one end to the other, these panels are fitted in a metal frame, which creates a neat and sleek partition. This is how two, or sometimes three, rooms feel connected to each other, making a house look more spacious than it actually is.
Pro Tip: You can add curtains along the sliding glass panels to retain the element of privacy in your home.
From expansive views to enhanced home aesthetic and better indoor/outdoor accessibility, there are many benefits of installing glass walls in your homes. However, maintaining privacy and ideal temperature indoors remains a challenge in such arrangements. Not to mention, there are different types of solutions available in this regard such as blinds, tints and intelligent air-conditioning systems with the help of which you can install a window wall into your living space without getting your comfort and privacy affected.
Quick Fact: An exterior glass wall does not only uplift the curb appeal of your property but it is also considered a key feature of contemporary living these days.
Glass in Bathroom
Installing glass in your bathroom does not come cheap but the way it uplifts the appeal of your living space is worth it. There are quite a few ways to incorporate glass in your bathroom decor, out of which, the installation of a glass shower is the most common one. It increases the versatility and functionality of your bathroom while giving it a modern look. However, if you are looking for some budget-friendly solutions for your bathroom decor, then here are a few ideas to make your bathroom feel like a spa while staying within your budget.
Pro Tip: You can also make use of translucent glass panels while designing or remodeling your bathroom to enjoy an increased sense of privacy.
Installing a glass ceiling can be taken as one of the most productive uses of glass in your home interior. It is the best way to come up with a sun-filled interior – one that keeps you more connected to your surroundings.
To make it appear more sophisticated, you can install a false ceiling made up of glass. The option of installing a few glass windows on the roof can also work for you if you are not fond of too much natural light or live in an area where the weather is usually hot.
Pro Tip: Try to make use of plants, especially decorating the area in your home with a glass room to add a delightful touch of nature to your living space.
The idea of installing glass railings will help you come up with a cleaner and more stylish-looking ambiance. It will also let your living space appear less crowded. Moreover, like conventionally used wooden or rod-iron railings, a glass railing offers the same durability and safety but unlike the two aforementioned options, it requires less maintenance that also makes it a more practical option.
Pro Tip: A glass railing, when installed on wooden stairs, results in a perfect match.
