Love the Reflection: Let Mirrors Spruce up the Interiors of Your House


Mirrors aren’t just designed to be a practical object to check your face in before stepping out of the house; there are many innovative ways the addition of a mirror can transform your space. They are the perfect option for making a space brighter and larger. A well-positioned mirror can also make a smaller room look more expansive and will play off light emitted from the natural windows in a larger room. Allowing you to think beyond the bathroom and the wardrobe, we take you through our top design tips on mirrors to enhance the beauty of home interior spaces.
A Wall of Mirrors

The horizontal and vertical lines in the wall of mirrors help to define a sleek space and draw attention to the accessories or the ambience around it like a painting or the garden. The mirrored wall also helps to distribute the natural light around the room. The addition of a mirror makes a room feel brighter and more spacious.
Illuminating the dark corners

One can enhance the amount of light in space in an understated manner by placing a mirror glass behind a switched-on lamp. Pairing the same with mirrored furniture to reflect all sources of light also imbues a sense of warmth and coziness without compromising on the illumination.
To let the natural light in, simply place a mirror opposite or next to a window. Bigger the mirror, brighter the space! So if you are wondering about ways to liven up your space, you know what requires to be done.
Go experimental with the mirror shapes

When positioned correctly, the right shape of the mirror can improve the outlook of a room. Instead of sticking to traditional rectangular mirrors, you must feel free to experiment with different shapes. Keep the shape or style of your room in mind and choose a mirror frame that reflects the tone. One that is unusually shaped certainly adds a bit of drama to an otherwise humdrum space, giving a room an instant wow-factor.
Mirror in the outdoors

Mirrors are not just for the inside of the home. More light can be introduced with their help when used in a north facing terrace or a shaded courtyard. While urban residents may choose a mirror that gives the appearance of widening the horizon of an enclosed garden, mirrors when used in a countryside setting, are a lovely way to catch an augmented view of the surrounding greenery and wildlife. Indeed, it is amazing how a beautiful mirror can work in multifarious ways to amplify light, add some excitement, create interesting reflections and catch the eyes when fitted in classy frames.
So mirror the magic in your best place in the world which you call home. Get in touch with our glass dealers to get the finest offerings in mirrors for adorning your abode.

When in Doubt, Retrofit

Have you ever looked up to your house or even office’s windows and remarked, ‘Hey, they need a change!’? Well, that certainly is not as uncommon as one might think. Glass doors and windows are the essence of every new building ever made. And since buildings do not need a revamping every other year, it is fair to say that doors and windows are often their longest lasting structures (apart from the walls, of course!).
Yet, given how important the role of windows is in not only serving as conduits of light and ventilation but also creating a fully-functional and modern space, there comes a time when one must give thought to changing the old windows.

This is where we tell you what retrofitting buildings with shiny and functional glass windows is all about.
Considering window renovation
Any sort of renovation is a hectic job. Not only do you need to identify the issues for repair but also research in the market for the ideal solution. Any such consideration has to be made after careful thought and planning since investment in architectural revamp, especially that of glass windows, will leave a result in place that will last for decades.
Moreover, when one considers window renovation, a lot of factors need to be dealt with. First is figuring out the right window for a particular functional need. Second is the expense incurred and the time taken to remove the old windows and replace them with new ones. Third is the impact which such a renovation might have on your property – what if your old windows add heritage value, thus leaving you reluctant to replace them altogether?
This is where retrofitting glass can be the ideal option for you. In retrofitting, a new, modern glazing will be installed atop your existing one from the inside. Time-saving and efficient, retrofitted windows are becoming increasingly popular in today’s world.
Retrofitting – A viable alternative
As mentioned before, retrofitting your building’s glass windows will help you save on the time and cost incurred in removing the existing windows and then installing the new ones. Thus, it is a quick solution for modern professionals who desire the least disruption in their lives.
Moreover, since glass windows are retrofitted from the inside, the look of your home or office from the outside will remain the same. This is perfect for those who do not want to change the aesthetics and veer towards maintaining the heritage and antiquity of their home or office.
Finally, another benefit that retrofitting offers is that your windows will get double glazeGlad, thus offering you increased insulation from heat, dust, pollution, and noise. Glass manufacturers such as AIS have come up with modern retrofitting solutions such as AIS Renew – a low-E energy-saving insulated glass that filters out sun’s heat without cutting down on natural lighting. It only takes 30-60 minutes to install one such window that also offers excellent reduction in dew condensation and low maintenance.
Perhaps most importantly, retrofitting your windows with energy-efficient glass will turn your building into a green one, thus helping you do your bit to protecting our precious environment.

How Can You Tackle Air Pollution with Glass?

You would believe that winters in India are welcomed with much celebration as they bring respite from the harsh summer heat. Yet, come November, and suddenly the picture doesn’t look so rosy anymore. Cue the menace of air pollution.
Over the last few years, air pollution levels in urban centres of the country have risen steadily and have now reached alarming levels. This issue is made all the more prominent in the cold weather as fog mixes with the pollutants to give rise to smog – an extremely unhealthy air that we have now become accustomed to breathing.

So, amidst it all, how can glass technology help?
Since one spends the maximum amount of time in a day indoors, either at home or an office, the solution to air pollution lies in staying as far away from it as possible. Such a solution is possible in the realm of architecture wherein our windows and other outlets in the building a sealed and secure enough to prevent any leakage of the polluted air inside. Therefore, all you need is a sophisticated glass window system that will keep you and your loved ones safe from the smog.
Stay safe indoors with Anti-Pollution Windows
Yes, you heard that right. As a leading glass company in India, AIS has always believed in the power of innovation to solve some of the most concerning architectural issues for customers and businesses, be it at homes or offices. With the same spirit of innovation in mind, our experts have created special Anti-Pollution and Anti-Smog Windows retailed by Glasxperts that promise to save you and your loved ones from the damaging effects of air pollution.
The idea, as you might have guessed, revolves around completely sealing air leakages and spaces inside so as to prevent the external environment from leaking inside homes and offices. How is this done? Let’s have a look:

  • Fusion-welded windows with a multi-lock system

High-quality gaskets and joints strongly seal the windows along with exceptional fusion welded joints. Such physical constructs in the specialized window system make it almost impossible for pollutants to enter inside and wreak havoc. Moreover, you can make sure that these windows close extremely tightly with the help of the advanced multipoint locking system in place.

  • Silicon to shut off gaps

A popular material used in various industries, silicon proves its merit in the anti-pollution window in the form of a special sealant that shits down any gaps – both in the window and the adjacent wall.

  • Double glazing in unit glasses

Moving on to the glass, you can rest assured of multi-chambered profiles and multiple layers that make it incredibly difficult for any minute percentage of outside air that has leaked inside to reach beyond the glazing. This advanced technique of providing completely sealed Double Glazing Units also enables the windows to prevent heat and sound to leak inside.

  • The ease of retrofitting

Finally, you might be thinking what a cumbersome and expensive task it would be to remove your existing windows and replace them with special anti-pollution ones. Well, these windows by AIS can be easily retrofitted on any window surface, thus freeing you of all the hassle. Retrofitting essentially means fitting a new window surface on top of the existing one, thus improving the efficiency of the entire system!
