Add A Wow Factor with Amazing Glazingby Vitrocsa john Webmaster
Whether you’re building a new home from scratch or you’re updating the one you already live in, choosing the right glazing can make all the difference to the finished look and feel of your property.
By incorporating some of the newest architectural glass systems, you will not only give your home a contemporary look and allow natural light to flood into the building, but it’s possible to add a wow factor too.
If you’re looking for glazing inspiration, here are some of the key glazing options that will help turn your home from ordinary to extra-special.
Ultra Slimline Windows
Slimline windows are an easy way to modernise your home. Their minimal frames maximise the amount of natural light and make the most of appealing views. Modern materials mean that they’re durable and low-maintenance and they look good too.
Floor to Ceiling Facades
Essentially, an entire wall made from glass, floor to ceiling facades are the ultimate in architectural glazing systems.
Their minimal, ultra slim frames make the most of any natural light making them the perfect solution for brightening up what would otherwise be dark areas of your home.
If your building has a vaulted ceiling, a trapezoid window will allow extra light into the space.
They’re usually a bespoke option which are made to fit the shape of the roof and are positioned above traditional windows to draw the maximum amount of sunlight inside.
If your room needs an extra boost of light, roof windows may be the solution. Positioned within the roof, this type of window is usually highly thermally efficient, so they not only help to retain heat, but they allow sunlight to flood down into the space.
Glass Entrance Doors
One way to flood your home with light and create a WOW factor is with glass entrance doors.
Contemporary and stylish, they offer a strong design element while allowing the light to shine through, while modern glazing methods ensure that they’re strong and secure.
Corner windows allow you to take full advantage of the light that hits your home. As their name suggests, they wrap around two walls of your home and are one of the most contemporary glazing options available on the market today.
If you have a view to die for, install a picture window. Aptly named, these windows are designed to frame a view and let in lots of light. Picture windows can’t be opened which makes them generally cheaper to install and maintain than those that open.
Don’t think that architectural glass has to be confined to the exterior walls of your home; they are just as stylish when used in the interior.
Glazed internal screens can be used to great effect to create zones within your home without impacting on space or light.As you can see, glazing is not just a useful way to allow light into your home but is a design element in itself. So before you settle for ‘ordinary’ windows, why not explore some of the more unusual options available?
