Glass may be simple in structure and appearance, but if utilised correctly, it can elevate the beauty of your house. From glass cabinets to glass doors, there are many ways you can use glass to enhance the design and functionality of your home.
Available in different colours and shapes, glass products can be as functional as they are decorative. Glass is also used to illuminate your space by allowing natural light to filter in through windows and because it is compatible with other materials such as wood, metal, and stone, glass fits seamlessly in almost any setting.
Here are some of the advantages of using glass in your home:
The biggest advantage of glass is that it is transparent, unlike wood or steel. Visually, this enables you to connect with the outside world. If you have a room with glass windows and doors, they allow natural light to illuminate your room during the day. This makes your home more appealing and creates a healthier atmosphere.
Glass is easy to clean and does not require a lot of maintenance. While you may need some caution around breakage, the glass comes in different ratings for strength and can be easily used for even strenuous applications.
Ultraviolet radiation does not affect glass and will not crack, discolour, or disintegrate when exposed to UV radiation.
Where Can You Use Glass in Your Home?
Glass is ideal as shower doors in your bathroom. It is easy to clean and water-resistant, which is a perfect feature for the wettest room in the house.
A glass tabletop adds elegance to your space and creates an illusion of a larger area. People use glass tabletops to blend in with their living space and the overall design of their homes.
Glass can be used as shelves in display cases and on wall systems. They can be installed in almost any space in your home, including the bathroom, kitchen, and bedroom.
Clear glass can be used for cabinets to display crockery and collectibles or protect valued items. Frosted glass is an alternative for cabinets where privacy is a significant concern or for a different look.
Carefully placed mirrors or mirror tiles can open up a smaller space, add more light and create an airy and light feel in your home.
Why Use Glass in Your Home?
Modern & Elegant
Glass looks contemporary and elegant in your home. Glass sheets and panels can be customised to your preferences and easily incorporated into your home’s design.
In the past, there was only one type of glass – clear glass. Nowadays, glass comes in different designs that are genuinely aesthetically pleasing. Tinted glass, frosted glass, rain glass, and more have specific characteristics that you can choose based on your unique needs.
Plexiglass (also known as acrylic glass) is a transparent material easily moulded into any desired shape. You can blow, draw, and press it into any form. That is why it is more customizable than other materials.
