4 Ways to Implement Glass Into a Modern House Design

If you’re looking to design a modern house, glass is a fantastic and versatile material to use that will allow you to bring light into your rooms, as well as create the illusion of open plan living.

If you’re feeling inspired, take a look at these glass designs to see how you can create the home of your dreams.

1.    Glass Furniture

Glass furniture is becoming increasingly popular due to its versatility alongside different colour schemes, whether you opt for loud and proud shades, or you’re a fan of a more neutral look.

You could use a glass dining table as the centrepiece of your room, featuring bold table decorations, or use glass coffee tables as inconspicuous accompaniments to a bold choice of sofa.

2.    Mirror Glass

If you’re looking to brighten or open up a room further, adding mirror glass to a wall for decoration can add dimension to your home.

Whether you opt for standard mirror glass, or go for a more aged look with some antique mirror glass, companies like Halifax Glass are renowned for their high quality mirror design and installation. They can craft a mirror to the specific dimensions you need for your home, and their items are made to order so you can rest assured that the quality will be just right.

3.    Glass Light Fittings

When it comes to light fittings, using glass is a fantastic way to help the light go further in each room.

For smaller or darker rooms, this is particularly useful, as the light can refract further than with traditional lampshades, which commonly spread light downwards, rather than across the room.

You could choose from a selection of glass fitting designs including chandeliers, pendants, tinted glass lamp shades and much more. Retailers like Dunelm have a wide selection of glass lamp shades to choose from, whether you’re after smoked glass, clear glass, or patterned glass.

4.    Glass Doors

If you’re looking to create the illusion of open plan living, glass doors could provide you with your ticket to opening out hallways and doorways between rooms. Using frosted glass could also provide you with privacy for bathrooms while still allowing light through.

You could also use temporary film placed over your glass panels for privacy, and retailers like Amazon stock a wide range of adhesive glass film in various designs and colours so you can create the design of your dreams on a very low budget.
