Designing a beautiful home isn’t just about using exclusive materials or exotic features and installations. Sometimes, even the simplest features can create an amazing impact on the overall aesthetics of your home. This is where frameless glass installations come into the picture.
Today, glass is used extensively in modern construction, both residential and commercial. The material works well as an exterior cladding in commercial buildings and lends a very chic and sophisticated look to the structure. In the case of residential structures, glass can be used in various areas of the home to uplift the look of the place.
It complements the look of any area, without interfering with the overall architectural styling of the space. This is because glass, with its transparency, has the ability to blend in perfectly with different types of interior and exterior décor and design concepts. Let’s take a look at different areas in your home that can benefit from frameless glass balustrade installations:
Glass balustrade or fencing enhances the look of outdoor spaces, and the different types of features that can be incorporated into landscaped areas for yard spaces include:
Glass Pool Fencing
If you have a swimming pool on your residential property, it is important that you get a safety feature like a fence installed around it. In fact, this is also a legal requirement, and installing a glass pool fence is one of the best ways to ensure that you meet it.
You can choose from different types of glass pool fences such as frameless, semi-framed as well as fully-framed features. Since these are custom designed elements, you can choose everything from the thickness, tint, texture, to the height and style of the fence.
Balustrades for Terraced Gardens
Some properties have multi-tiered landscaped spaces. While these lend a very distinctive look to the property, it also becomes necessary to demarcate these areas well. If you don’t want to compromise on the expansiveness and openness of the space yet need a certain amount of demarcation, installing semi-framed glass balustrades is the way to go.
Patios, Decks, and Exterior Staircases
Raised outdoor features like patios and decks can benefit from a glass balustrade installation. These features can also be used as railings for exterior staircases. They add to the safety of these outdoor features without obstructing the view of the yard.
Just as glass balustrades and fencing fit in perfectly into outdoor spaces, they also add appeal, safety, and functionality to indoor spaces. The different settings these can be used in include:
Balconies And Terraces
These features allow you to enjoy the open air without having to actually get out of your home. But you also need to ensure that they have the right kind of safety features.
While many balconies have metal or wood railings, these tend to block the view and create a very closed-in space. In comparison, when you use glass balustrades along the periphery of balconies and terraces, they provide the safety you require with no compromise on the view.
Indoor staircases need to have proper railings and glass is an excellent choice. You can opt for transparent glass balustrading with metal railings. These will add an elegant look and improve the safety levels of the feature without clashing with the interior décor in your home.
As you can see, glass balustrades are extremely versatile features and can be installed not just in indoor and outdoor areas as well. For any more information, don’t hesitate to get in touch with us at Quantum Frameless Glass. You can call 1300 298 898 or contact us through this online form.
