Glass gives us a feeling of well-being both at home and in the workplace. It’s transparency allows the movement of light both natural and artificial enlarging spaces and creating a lightness in design.
Glass is a versatile and strong building material and most stunning and artistically designed interiors will incorporate it in some way.
There are many types of glass available now, transparent glass, low iron glass, sandblasted and etched glass, tinted glass, backpainted glass, printed glass and the designer and architect have a range of options available to them in specifying the most innovative of products. Using a glass designer at this early stage of planning is integral to the finished design.
Glass balconies and balustrades are becoming increasingly fashionable and have moved from the large glass shopping centres we all use into home design. Frameless glass banisters are now commonplace in structural toughened laminated glass with bottom channel giving a clear minimalist view both internally and externally using glass balustrades and glass juliete balconies in easy clean glass. Stainless steel known for its strength, versatility and contemporary design is a perfect companion to structural glass and allows for a modern interior and exterior look.
Non slip glass is perfect for glass stairs and glass flooring. With the increase in popularity of basement extensions when planning restricts the use of additional floors, glass is the perfect material to borrow light from rooms. Why not renovate and transform an existing staircase by using glass infils, easy to install yourself and gives an elegant and bespoke look to any stairs.
