5 Unique Ways to Work with Glass In Interior Design
Looking for a fun twist to make your home unique? Look no further, as glass is the prefect element to do so. Both decorative and functional, introducing glass elements can give you many directions to go in to. While it is beautiful, durable and versatile, glass often remains under-used in interior design and home renovation projects. That’s because many homeowners don’t know how to make the most of it (apart from exploring obvious possibilities). And if you need a bit of additional inspiration, the following guide will present some fun and trendy glass projects worth considering.
Introduce a Glass Statement Piece
A Glass Statement piece adds outstanding appeal to the room and introduces a wow factor. It can look super cool because of the material’s ability to sparkle and interact with light. It’s also futuristic and a lot more modern than various alternative kinds of light.
Your glass statement piece could come in the form of a massive chandelier, a stained glass window, a glass sculpture or an entire hanging installation. Look online for pieces that you like and you can commission the creation of your own custom glass masterpiece. Various local artists can work with the material and produce something unique to display proudly in your home.
Experimenting with Glass Furniture
Incorporated into furniture, glass gives you clarity, minimalism and ease of maintenance. It adds a degree of lightness to pieces that may otherwise appear chunky. From table tops, shelves, closet doors, cabinets featuring glass elements, storage units and even glass chairs are available. Most of these look really cool and modern.
When picking, however, don’t just feel drawn to visuals. Make sure that the design will also guarantee functionality and comfort. Some pieces look outstanding but they’re simply too fragile for intense everyday use. That’s why you may want to prioritise glass furniture that’s further reinforced with metal and wood.
Consider Ceiling-High Glass Cabinets
Using mirrors can produce impressive results when used on these large surfaces. Stay away from the norm of wooden or metal cabinets, go for something with a mirror glass exterior will enhance the room to look larger. By designing the cabinet to go as high as the room can be, it will usually result in a really interesting effect. You can even conceptualise an entire visual illusion by having ceiling and floor elements working together to reflect and refract light in a distinctive manner, making the room look larger than its supposed to be.
A glass wall can be used to separate the living room from the dining area. That’s a cool concept because you still get a sense of privacy while the two parts of an open floor layout are actually visually distinguished from each other.
The type of glass and whether you go for a single panel or numerous pieces of glass will also have to be determined on the basis of the desired effect. Mix different kinds of glass for the most fun and exciting outcome.
Add a Glass Divider in the Bathroom
Glass dividers are an excellent material to consider for your the bathroom. It does what its supposed to do: keeping wet and dry areas separate, while not having the claustrophobic feeling as you're able to see through it. And the best part of having a glass divider is that it’s so incredibly easy to clean while also being tremendously durable.
In all, glass is an incredible material homeowners can use conventionally or in completely unorthodox ways. Reach out to one of our designers today to improve your home with glass elements today.
