In the world of interior design, tempered glass has come to occupy a special status. In a short span of time, we’ve seen it become one of the top architectural materials of choice. Tempered glass truly has become a staple in home décor, and if you took even a cursory look at its benefits, you’d see why. When you blend the smart use of tempered glass with some imagination, you’re looking at tasteful interiors that stand out from cookie-cutter designs.
Upgrade your home with tempered glass
Tempered glass or toughened glass is a widely used product that has gone through a special annealing process. It is heated to a high temperature and cooled very quickly; this gives it strength and the glass becomes quite difficult to break. Even if it does happen to break, it breaks into tiny blunt pieces instead of big shards, significantly reducing the risk of injury. This unique feature has earned it the moniker of ‘safety glass’.
Using tempered glass to design your house’s interiors is one of the best ways to enhance its aesthetic appeal. Be it doors, windows, cabinets, or partitions, the architectural value of this glass product is high in designing stylish yet functional homes.
Here is how you can increase the visual appeal of your house by ingeniously using tempered glass and achieve the look you want – contemporary, old school, fusion, et al.
Classy glass partitions
Glass partitions are both functional and trendy. Use tempered glass to create partitions in a room and give it an effect of being spacious and luxurious. This works especially better than walls by saving space and lending elegance to your house.
You can install tempered glass partitions to divide your living room into separate sections. Some homeowners create an L-shaped partition to set up a small work or study area, such that the space looks open and airy.
Swanky ceilings and floors
To give your home a more distinctive look, get tempered glass ceilings and floors installed. Tempered glass gives ceilings and floors that extra durability and resilience, thanks to its ability to withstand large amounts of pressure. Shiny glass tiles can completely transform the look of a room, adding heaps of style and sophistication to space. Some homeowners also use glass ceilings to allow extra sunlight in through the roof or pair glass with the ceiling’s design in some measure to give it a glossy appearance.
Tastefully designed bathrooms
Using glass partitions to separate the shower area in the bathroom is a trend that has caught on for two reasons – a stylish look and functionality. Using tempered glass to create a shower enclosure in your bathroom is also a good idea since it is resistant to corrosion and can withstand extreme temperatures. Apart from shower enclosures, tempered glass can also be used in washbasins to give your bathroom an elegant feel. These washbasins can hold out against heavy impact and do not break easily.
Sleek shelves and cabinets
Tempered glass can give your furniture a clean aesthetic along with durability. Glass furniture is widely popular in interior design since it complements almost every style. One particularly beautiful application of glass furniture in the living room is the floating shelf. This is a tempered glass shelf directly attached to the wall that can be used to display vases, artwork, or pictures. You can also use this versatile product in the kitchen in the form of glass counter-tops and cabinets that give the space a luxurious feel.
Trendy windows and doors
Tempered glass is the optimal choice for home fenestration as it can take the impact of a heavy object and remain standing. This attribute can come in handy when a burglar tries to break through the windows. To put it simply, tempered glass is also an immensely safe installation, apart from being an aesthetically pleasing one. Another feature of the glassis that it can hold up against extreme weather conditions as well as regulate the temperature inside the house. Its resistance to temperature changes prevents the house from getting too hot during the summer or too cold during winter.
Many homeowners make use of tempered glass for trendy windows, skylines, or transparent sliding doors. It can also be used to make artistic door handles and nameplates.
A stairway inside the living room can sometimes give it a congested, cramped feel. One good workaround this is to use glass balustrades made of tempered glass alongside the stairway. Balustrades give the effect of the living room being spacious, apart from being visually stunning.
