Why and How to Add More Glass to Your Home This Summer

Glass is of course, as popular as ever when it comes to interior design. Versatile, modern and fits with every style of décor.

As the summer moths roll round, there is a noticeable increase in demand and desire for glass installations in and around the home. Transparency allows the natural light to flow through, creating a calm ambience within rooms and creating the illusion of space.

If you’ve been considering incorporating glass features into your home, we’ve prepared a run-down of the top 5 ways to do so;

Glass panel walls

There’s no argument that floor to ceiling glass panels in place of a solid wall, will generate the ‘wow’ factor you’ve been looking for, especially if beyond it, there’s an incredible landscape to enjoy. A popular choice for the rear of the house, allowing you to bring the outside in, look out upon your garden and watch the time pass by. Another popular option is adding a glass wall panel, often frosted, to an ensuite. This increases light flow into what is often a small space and opens the bathroom up into your bedroom.

Glass shower enclosures

The bathroom should be a space reserved for rest and recuperation, and modern wet rooms and shower enclosures allow you to enjoy the luxury bathing experience, without the need to run the bath. Allow our team to create you a spacious and bespoke glass shower enclosure, no matter your available space and room shape.  Somewhere where the light and summer warmth is still able to seep through and relax your muscles, whilst you marvel the design and detail of your tailored shower enclosure. If you have a small bathroom, this is a flawless solution to producing the façade of additional space, using the powers of natural lighting.

Our team at Goldsmith & Cooper are experienced in designing and planning shower enclosures for unique spaces, get in touch with us on 01603 904411 to discuss your requirements.

Glass balustrades for your patio/decking

Arguably, one of the best things about summer is being able to enjoy your garden at any time of day, whether that’s enjoying your breakfast in the first rays of sun, topping up on your vitamin D in the afternoon or soaking up the last few beams in the evening with a glass of wine.

Of course, we still have to remain realistic and remember that this is the UK, and most often whilst there is sun, there is often also still a breeze. With the addition of glass balustrades surrounding your decking and patio area, it’s possible to create a transparent windbreak that enables you to sit outside, without the disturbance of the wind but also without disrupting your view.

We are always more than happy to help you get the most out of your garden. If you’re interested in attaching glass balustrades to your decking or patio area, then don’t hesitate to call us or use our contact form below to request a quote.

Entrance hall glass features

Often the smallest, and most overlooked room of the house is the entrance hall to your home, but there are often two significant features that can be updated, helping you to make the right first impression.

Choose a glass front door. Instead of opting for a wooden or PVC front door, consider a glass panelled door which will welcome the sun and natural light in. If your home is overlooked, it may be best to choose a front door that rather than full glass panels, has a large glass window. Even frosted panels increase the light in your home tenfold, ensuring your entrance hall is bright and inviting.

Consider utilising glass in your staircase. More often than not, due to the sheer size and scale of a staircase, it blocks light, creating shadows throughout the room it is in. By selecting a glass staircase, you will transform your space entirely, as the light is able to bounce around the room. As well as opening up the room, a glass staircase adds a sense of opulence to your room. We’d be happy to help you achieve this, call us today on 01603 904411 to book your installation.

Glass furniture

If you are exploring glass installation options or would prefer to only make small and temporary changes, opt for a few pieces of glass furniture that can be paired with any interior design. Core pieces such as a glass coffee table, glass cabinets, glass shelves and glass kitchenware help to add elegance and sophistication to your home.

If you are considering adding a glass feature to your home this summer, now is the time. Capture the best of the year and optimise the light coming into your home so you can make the most of your home, even if the British summertime lets us down.
