Custom Glass for Your Home
Kitchen. Cabinets are a great place to use glass, whether on the doors or for the shelves. Coupled with strategic lighting, the glass can give your kitchen a bright, airy look. Backsplashes are also a great way to add an accent to the kitchen. You might also entertain the idea of glass countertops, or if you have doors separating your kitchen from another room, custom glass can be a great way to add light and a feeling of openness.
Bathroom. You can do away with the often unsightly shower curtain-and avoid having to regularly replace it-with the use of glass doors and walls for your shower. A glass-encased shower adds a touch of elegance to any bathroom. If your bathroom has windows, using custom glass that can be colored or frosted can also be a great idea; it will allow in the light, and maintain your privacy without the need for curtains or blinds.
Living room. Natural light can greatly enhance our feeling of comfort in a room, especially in the living room. You can use custom glass on your windows or doors, or even have shelving units built from glass. The added bonus of using glass in your living room is that it can easily double as a work of art, adding a great touch of uniqueness to your main living space. A glass wall can also greatly enhance the beauty and sense of space, and allow the light from the windows to spread out through the house.
Railings and accents. If your home features a staircase, consider turning it into a design accent by adding a glass railing. Likewise, glass tabletops can be real attention-grabbers. Consider adding a custom-fitted glass top to an old barrel to create a vintage centerpiece with a modern accent.
