Ways to use glass inside your home

Put glass to work beautifying your home inside 

The versatility of glass is almost boundless. Select the glass for your desired look, and then step inside and decorate with light. The transparency and reflectivity of our interior glass allows you to create designs that move natural light through your spaces. The result is a home that can deliver the aesthetic you love.

Why consider glass for home interiors 

Your windows are the source of natural light in your home. This makes personal spaces more inviting and reduces the need for artificial light. Do you have there any interior rooms or areas that would benefit from this? Glass used in interior design – such as partitions, walls or railings – allows daylight to penetrate deeper into spaces, brightening interior rooms. Yet it can also create privacy and design with a textured or etched surface.

How glass can be multi-functional 

Interior glass can be as subtle or as bold as your vision. A glass top on your dining room table is very functional, yet once complemented by a credenza of mirrored glass that plays with natural light it can create the illusion of depth in a smaller room. A glass railing on the stairs allows light to travel upstairs, and even the stairs themselves can be transformed. Just imagine how highly transparent, low-iron glass would make steps and railings ‘disappear’.
