Why glass over other materials for your home remodel?
“HOME” and “HOUSE” are two very different concepts. When you think about your home, it is more than just the address you have your mail sent to. It is a place of comfort, an expression of our personality and a haven from the outside world. Have you noticed how the state of your home can affect your mood? When it’s clean and tidy when you’re calm, happy and comfortable and when it’s messy it’s the opposite? Yes! We all do this. The design and decor of your house can have the same affect.
Take a look around your home. Is it feeling outdated? Do you have old tiles or other materials? Is it time to spruce things up? Replacing outdated material is one of the simplest and most cost-effective solutions for your home and glass is a durable and beautiful material to consider. Here’s why:
Durable and hygienic in high traffic areas:
Homeowners, designers and home builders are choosing glass over other materials due to its durability and how easy it is to sanitize. It’s great for high traffic areas like kitchen glass backsplashes or glass wall panels in showers and baths.
Endless design possibilities for all rooms: Innovative glass design can create a beautiful space in any room of your home. Our clients love to add color to a glass backsplash, patterned or textured glass to bathroom glass wall panels or an antique mirror to a bar area.
Adapts to any style: Nothing dates a bathroom like outdated tile or stained grout. A glass shower enclosure provides a timeless alternative that is easy to clean and avoids grout altogether! Combine with a frameless glass shower door or a sliding glass shower door to meet your needs and style.
Safe and beautiful: In many states, pool fences are a legal requirement. Ugly or flimsy pool fences are not. More and more families are choosing glass pool fences that guard against slipping through bars or tearing down netting while not obstructing a clear view to the pool water. Enjoy the beauty of your pool while keeping your family securely in site.
