Did you know that glass has become a hugely popular material within the home over recent years? And I’m not just talking about windows here. It’s no surprise really, glass looks elegant, offers clean lines and is reasonably priced which makes it a great choice, plus there are many different ways you can incorporate it into your home. If you’re looking to update your home with the use of glass take a look at the 5 ways to incorporate glass into your home below, they’re sure to give you a few ideas to get you started.
If you want to update your kitchen but you don’t want to spend a fortune then a great way to do this is to replace old countertops with a new glass counter. Glass is popular in the kitchen because it creates a clean, stylish look and is easy to keep clean. If you want to see how your kitchen could look with a stylish new glass counter then take a look at CBD Glass Studio who design amazing glass kitchen tops. For that extra wow factor you could add a few LED lights under the countertop.
Another great way to add a touch of style to your kitchen is to replace your tired tiles with a glass splashback. Not only does this look amazing but it’s much easier to keep clean than tiles are because there are no small grooves where germs can hide. Splashbacks are made using a thinner glass than for countertops and are a great affordable way of incorporating the glass trend into your home. Glass will also make your kitchen feel larger and brighter thanks to the light reflecting off the surface.
The bathroom is another room where we often see glass being used. Over the last few years, people have been replacing shower curtains with glass shower screens. This is a great way to give your bathroom a new look on a budget. Unlike a traditional shower curtain which can block out light, glass screens can help open up space and bring more light into the room. For those with a separate shower cubicle, large open glass cubicles are proving popular.
If you like glass countertops this is something you could carry through from your kitchen by creating a glass top for your sink or any units you might have in your bathroom.
Glass furniture is a great way to add style to any room and to help light travel to create the illusion of a bigger room. If you’re thinking about investing in some glass furniture why not get a nest of glass tables for your living room, a glass coffee table with gold trim is hugely popular at the moment, and of course there’s the option of a beautiful glass dining table. Glass looks expensive but it doesn’t have to cost the earth to look good. What’s important with glass furniture is to keep it clean so it looks it’s best, any smudges and marks will be noticeable on glass surfaces but a quick wipe will keep it looking great.
If you want to add some glass to your home but you want to keep it subtle then a glass chandelier is a great option. Whether you choose to hang it in your hallway, dining room or living room, a chandelier is sure to be a talking point with guests thanks to their eye-catching look. A glass chandelier looks elegant and is a great way of mixing different materials and textures without looking out of place.
This is the most inexpensive way of incorporating glass into your home. Adding glass accessories lets you add subtle touches throughout your home. There are many different accessories you could add, how about a few stylish glass photo frames, a floating glass shelf, or some gorgeous vases with a few well-placed flowers. And remember, you don’t have to stick to clear glass. Be bold. Add a few coloured glass items to help make your room pop.
