Today, homeowners are very particular about the appearance of their homes. When they build new structures they want to ensure that the indoor spaces have a good amount of natural sunlight and air; with this in view, they get their builders to design wide balconies, patios and decks.
When there are indoor or outdoor stairs, they want these features to be designed elegantly. While functionality is still a priority, a lot of weightage is given to aesthetics too. This is where glass balustrades come into the picture. These features look great in any type of setting and complement the look of different types of architectural and interior design styles.
There are a number of varieties to choose from such as framed, semi-framed and frameless glass balustrades, and you also have the option to decide what kind of glass you want, based on the location of the balustrade, the setting and the level of privacy required. Every home has a certain style and balcony, terraces, stairs, patios and decks could all be of different shapes and sizes too.
This means, if you are getting a glass balustrade installed, you would have to opt for a custom designed one. There are a number of benefits to opting for a custom glass balustrade installation, such as:
This is one of the most important benefits of a custom feature. When you get a glass balustrade installed, you need it to be functional. This means, it has to serve the purpose it has been built for. For example, if you have kids and pets in your home, you may want the glass balustrade to be of a certain height and may not want very wide gaps between the panels and posts. In a commercial setting, the requirement may be for thicker glass panels as the traffic in these spaces may be more. All of these are custom requirements and a well-established company would be able to provide the solutions you need.
#2 Perfect Fit
As mentioned earlier, every setting is different and some balconies, terraces or stairs may have a specific shape – the balustrade will have to be built in that shape. So, if you have a curved staircase, the glass balustrade will also have to be a curved one. This type of perfect fit can be possible only when you get a custom designed installation.
As a property owner, you want to ensure that every feature on your property is designed tastefully and that it blends in well with the overall look of your property. Glass balustrades are extremely versatile. The transparency and simplicity of glass makes it perfect for any application and setting. Regardless of whether you have a casual styled home or a formal styled one, a glass balustrade will only enhance the appeal of your home.
#4 Low Maintenance
These glass balustrades can be designed to match your requirements to the tee. If you want a very low-maintenance feature, you can opt for frameless balustrades. These are stunning to look at, and require the least amount of maintenance, since they largely have panels of glass and very little hardware. This means, you get a very low maintenance feature for different areas of your home.
