Windows

Replacing foggy, cracked and chipped windows in your home is in your best interest. However, even if they are in a decent condition, you should consider replacing your aged window glass with specialized glass that can resist breaking and also help in considerably lowering your utility bills.

For instance, insulated glass is made with two window panes that have glass filled in the space between them. They are great at preventing heat from escaping and in turn, help reduce your heating bill. Similarly, they prevent heat from entering your home during the summer months, keeping your home cool and reducing your AC bill.

Tempered glass is another variety you should consider as they are much stronger than the standard versions available on the market. The added strength means that there is a much lower risk of someone breaking into your home or the glass breaking due to external objects, such as balls being thrown. Also, unlike ordinary glass, if tempered glass breaks, it shatters into granular chunks instead of pieces with sharp edges, reducing the risk of injury.

Glass Doors

Glass doors are capable of doing something that other doors cannot, they allow in natural light into the living space. They don’t warp like wooden doors or rust like metal doors do. Many homeowners prefer having sliding glass doors installed in their home leading to the patio, deck or yard. What most don’t know is that sliding doors aren’t the only shower door option. You can also choose a folding, hinged or fixed door to allow ease of access to everyone in your home. You may also decide to add a single glass panel to an already existing door. Incorporating frosted glass can help enhance the door’s style while also increasing your privacy.

Mirrors

Consider incorporating mirrors into your home if you feel like there’s something missing. Mirrors aren’t limited to only being placed in bathrooms anymore. You can use them to enhance your living space, dining area and bedroom as they can help add a touch of class and elegance into any space they are used in. Mirrors are capable of visually enlarging any room they’re placed in and also to add a splash of light to brighten the space up significantly. You can also create a small piece of art by placing mirrors of different sizes. The best option is to work with a professional glass company to create a custom mirror that meets your needs.

Shower Doors

Shower curtains tend to become wet which results in a build-up of mold and mildew. To prevent this from happening, consider installing a glass shower door. Besides looking modern and beautiful, they are also easy to clean and maintain. They are available in numerous varieties, ensuring that you find one that’s perfect for your home.

Showers that have sliding glass doors use minimal space and are considered to be functional as well. But one drawback of this is, if not cleaned properly, they may attract mildew and mould growth. If you’re looking for space-saving options, then corner showers might be the one for you. These enclosures can snugly fit in any corner in the bathroom. Neo-angle showers are a particular type of corner shower, which has three glass sides. Once installed in its position, the three sides and two corners form the shape of a diamond.

Another thing left for you to decide on is frameless and framed shower doors. The framed kind can prevent water from escaping and the frameless ones tend to avoid all of the hassles that come with shower seals.

There are truly endless choices when you are deciding to add glass to your home. It allows you to create an open space and also add some much-needed character to your decor.
