Make Glass Railings Part of Your Home Renovation Project
Embarking on a home renovation project can be a lot of fun, as well as a bit scary and totally exciting. You’ll be glad to see the results but in the meantime there’s a lot of work to be done. Most of the work should be fun, like selecting colors, materials, and other aspects of your ‘new’ home. Have you thought about glass railings? Both indoor and outdoor, glass railings can help you make the most of your space and get the most out of your renovation project. Let's look at how.
Opening the Space
One major reason why Vancouver residents renovate their homes is to make the house more of an open-plan space. Even an apartment or condo can really benefit from fewer walls. The modern style of living is not complemented by highly segmented home spaces. The living and kitchen areas are more often integrated for an inclusive feel. So home renovation projects are often focused on making the most of the spaces available.
Glass railings lend themselves perfectly to this aesthetic of space creation. You can open up a space by including an open staircase, but not everyone wants their stairs to be completely open. Glass railings allow you the safety features of railings, but without the visual intrusion that makes a space feel smaller.
Accents of Your Style
In addition, you don’t have just one type of glass railing to select. There’s a whole range of options, from frameless glass railings that are virtually invisible, to frames and accents made of stainless steel or even wood. The design options are numerous and there’s a glass railing for everyone.
When designing railings for your deck may mean that you have the option to do something custom. If you have a large expanse, a wide array of angles or tricky spots, then custom designing a glass railing system will help you have the best solution possible. The beauty of glass railings is that you know that glass is an extremely safe material, and can be manufactured in a number of ways using both transparent, opaque or textured glass, depending on the look you want to achieve.
While the transparency of glass can trick our minds to think that the railings are not safe, in actuality, glass is a very hard and safe material. You can add glass deck railings to any family home and know that the material is extremely strong and durable.
Vancouver and the Lower Mainland is known for it’s beauty. Mountain, ocean and beautiful parks are just a few things that it can boast as part of the appeal. Glass deck railings on your home and commercial property can help you to take advantage of the beautiful scenery, giving you an open unobstructed view to the outdoors.
To top it all off, glass railings are easy to maintain. No matter the type of home renovation project you’re conducting in Vancouver, consider using stylish, practical, and convenient glass railings.
