Glass balustrades are a great addition to enhance the appeal of various installations in your house. It is one of the most trending architectural features to add in 2018. Primarily used for safety, glass balustrades serve other purposes too.
These installations are becoming increasingly popular and are being used in a number of different ways now, in both commercial and residential settings. Here is a list of the best ways to include glass balustrades in various settings:
#1 Dividers for Gardens
A residential garden space allows you to spend some peaceful moments in the comfort of your own home, in open and green surroundings. However, it should also include a play areas for kids, a place for dining, BBQ parties or socialising. Creating zones for gardens in residential spaces is a great way to demarcate these spaces. Adding glass balustrades rather than opting for fences is a great option. The former creates the demarcation you want without compromising on the view.
Many homeowners install sandpits in the yard for their kids, and these features provide hours of fun. However, you wouldn’t want the sand to be flung out of the pit and other into various areas of your garden. Installing glass balustrades with fittings like standoff points can effectively zone your garden into a smaller and safer area. This improves the usability of the space providing a greater return on investment.
#2 A Barrier for Safety Around Water
Many homeowners have started adding ponds, waterfalls, pools and hot tubs and other water features to their properties. Relaxing in the pool on a warm day sounds very relaxing. Unfortunately, having water features in your landscape also increases the chances of accidents such as children drowning and other similar incidents.
It is now mandatory in Sydney to have fencing around swimming pools, in order to increase the safety of your pool. Add glass balustrades to your poolscape to prevent accidents from taking place. It is a good option to install this feature for protection around the pool and get a glass gate fitted too.
#3 Barriers and Dividers for Walkways
There are many areas where you need to guide people, on both domestic and commercial properties. Glass balustrades can be installed in commercial settings and they act as a divider or marker, directing people in a certain direction. Glass balustrades are a great addition to such spaces. The infill panels can easily be customised to any design of your choice. You can opt for frosted or tinted glass which adds to the appeal of the feature.
#4 Other Sculptural Accessories
Glass balustrades can be incorporated into a landscape as a decorative accessory as well. Even though they are commonly used as barriers, they can also be customised to add to the beauty of the area. For example, you can install a custom designed glass balustrade to segregate one section of the available space of your yard. You can plant various flowers and shrubs in this space to create a sensory and aesthetically appealing outdoor area.
In addition, you can also use these features for standoff points to raise the glass infill from the bed of the structure. This helps create a more unique and appealing design. Glass balustrades can be a great addition to any property, especially when plants or lights are added to the setting. These installations are strong and durable and enhance the appeal of your landscape.
