Most homeowners are very particular about the manner in which they design their homes. While they do look for high quality features designed in new styling and in-sync with the latest trends, not everyone likes to spend large amounts of money on these upgrades.
Today, property owners look for elements that are functional, practical, low-maintenance and streamlined. And unsurprisingly, there are a large number of new materials and designs in the market that you can choose from. When it comes to home improvement and residential upgrades, glass balconies have become a very popular choice and these lend a very modernistic touch to your home. Take a look at how:
Light and reflectivity
If you have a balcony in the exterior of your home or even on a mezzanine floor in your home, adding a glass balcony to it helps provide the safety you need at that point without hampering the light and reflectivity in that space, in any way. They lend an interesting dimension without impacting the existing features in that area.
Wood and some other materials such as wrought iron etc. don’t really gel well with modern architectural styling; but glass does. Not only does it allow the light to pass through, but it also reflects light which adds spaciousness to the space. It provides a subtle demarcation in space without disrupting the flow in any way and that is exactly what modern design is all about.
A unique look
Modern interior and exterior structural design leans heavily on making structures look unique without adding too many embellishments to the building. When you choose to get glass balustrades installed on your property, it becomes a unique statement piece and lends character to your home.
You can get the detailing and luxurious look you want, by choosing to get glass railings installed on your property. Glass is also a very versatile material. It can be frosted and etched and you can also choose from curved and other unique shaped glass for the balustrading.
Mixes with various styles
We did mention earlier that glass balustrades are perfect for modern-styled homes. But the fact is they look equally stunning on traditional styled homes too and they don’t take away from the original design of the structure. In fact, you will be able to replace an older wooden, cluttered and closed balustrading with a glass balcony that has crisp and clear lines.
At times, homeowners are also getting the rest of the balcony space upgraded and no matter which material you use, glass will complement it perfectly. Glass looks great with finishes such as wood, tiling, natural stone, leather, any outdoor furnishing, brick as well as laminate flooring etc. And so, when you choose to get a glass balustrade installed, you don’t have to worry about any kind of mismatch in the styling of the space.
The perfect complement to lighting
Glass and lighting work fabulously well together. In most instances, when homeowners get glass balustrades installed on their internal or external balconies, they also tend to get some light fittings installed around and under it. This helps draw the attention towards the installation and it helps in reflecting light into a potentially darker spot too.
No matter which way you look at it, glass balustrades are an ideal modernistic installation for your balcony.
