If you are looking for a unique and simple way of adding value to your home with some home improvement upgrades, you should consider getting glass balustrades installed. These are a very versatile installation that fits in beautifully with interior as well as landscape design concepts. These features transform the look of your home while also adding to the functionality of the existing spaces. If you plan to sell your home sometime in the future, you will find that glass balustrading adds to the sale value of your home.
Why are balustrades so beneficial?
Glass balustrades can be incorporated into the indoor and outdoor areas of your home in a number of different ways:
#1 Create relaxation areas
You can use glass balustrades to demarcate spaces in your landscape for relaxation and entertainment. For instance, you can add a glass balustrade to the pool space; this adds to the beauty and safety of the space. Adding a custom-designed balustrade to your patio or deck also makes the feature safer. All you have to do is add a gate to the installation to turn your deck or patio into a safe place for your kids or pets to play in.
#2 Improve the privacy of your property
Some people wonder how glass balustrading can provide them privacy in their garden spaces and they rarely consider this as an option to demarcate their property’s boundary. But the fact is you can choose from a range of glass varieties based on the level of privacy you desire.
#3 Build outdoor kitchen walls
Many people like to get an outdoor kitchen installed in their yard, but feel that solid brick and concrete walls just block the view of the landscape and surrounding areas and make the space look smaller than it actually is. The simplest solution is to add a glass balustrade along the periphery of the outdoor kitchen. This will create the division you need to install seating features without hampering the view of the yard. A glass balustrade always adds to the openness and spaciousness of the yard.
#4 Balcony features
While many homeowners like the idea of having balconies leading out of their bedrooms and overlooking their gardens and yards, they also feel that adding concrete, wooden or aluminium railings makes the space look claustrophobic. In fact, it also acts like a barrier and prevents them from taking in the beauty of these outdoor spaces or the surrounding scenery.
However, when you get a frameless glass balustrade installed, you will have a safe railing feature; since it’s made of glass, it won’t block your view. If you feel you want some privacy in the balcony, without compromising on the openness factor, you should get tinted or frosted glass panels. If you want to add a Juliet balcony to a full length window in your bedroom, adding a glass feature is a great option. The glass will allow more natural light to filter through than an opaque metal or wooden balcony.
The benefits of glass balustrades
There really are a number of benefits to getting a glass balustrade installed in your home:
- Glass reflects light and these installations are an excellent option for balconies as they will add to the cheeriness and brightness of the indoor spaces.
- The glass panel of these frameless balustrading systems allow you to enjoy the beauty of your landscape or the surrounding view even as you relax on your patio or deck.
- This feature complements the look of more traditional as well as contemporary-styled homes.
- It adds to the aesthetics and functionality of your home.
