The Glorious World of Glass

3 Areas of Your Home That Can Be Improved With Frameless Glass

Frameless glass is becoming an increasingly popular choice among Australian homeowners. Adding frameless glass to your home helps to transform the interior and the exterior of your property. Frameless glass panels are available in any size and a range of shapes. If you are looking for information about the different ways frameless glass can be incorporated into your home, you have come to the right place. Read on for some top tips.

Hall area

In many homes, the hall area can seem quite cramped and dark. This is because most hall areas only have one small window or skylight. You can overcome this problem by installing frameless floor to ceiling windows in your hall area. Doing so will allow a large amount of light to enter the hall and will help to create a sense of space. If your hall is very long, you should consider installing several long but thin glass panels at intervals along it. 

Dining room and living area

If you property features an open plan dining room and living area, you may soon find that activity occurring in one room, such as the kids watching TV, can disrupt other members of the family in the other space. While you could install wooden swing doors, which will act as a barrier between the two spaces, this will compromise the sense of space inside the property and disrupt the open plan design. A great solution to this problem is to install frameless glass panels between the rooms with a central door section. The glass will help to prevent sound from travelling between the two rooms but will still allow you to enjoy a sense of space. If you have kids, installing frameless glass will also allow you to keep an eye on them from the dining room when they are in the living area.

Garden area

Finally, frameless glass can be a great solution if you wish to separate different areas of your garden without compromising on the sense of space or the sunlight which is available. A traditional barrier such as a fence or hedge blocks out sunlight and can make even a large garden feel quite small. Install frameless glass panels between your lawn and your vegetable patch or patio will allow you to block out strong winds and prevent noise pollution from ruining your peaceful garden, while also allowing you to enjoy the space in all its glory.
