Are you looking for a way to add some exciting elements throughout your home? Patterned glass is a very versatile and visually appealing material that can allow you to incorporate various patterns, opacities, and even colours into just about any area of your design. Whether you’re looking to add some unique flair to your kitchen, living room, bedroom or even your bathroom, here are a few artsy uses for patterned glass that can add more depth, privacy and appeal to your home décor.
The Front Entranceway
The entranceway is one of the first and last areas that your family, friends, and guests see when they’re visiting. So why not add something unique like patterned glass to create an attractive design? This is a very popular area of the home for adding some creative notes, especially since it tends to be darker and overshadowed. But by incorporating panels of patterned glass on either side of the doorway, you can maintain privacy while allowing more natural light to brighten the area.
If you’re in the process of remodelling your kitchen or are considering updating your current design, cabinets with etched glass panes are another popular choice for showing off your favourite teacups or other kitchenware in a subtle, unique way. Having some etched glass, along with a soft light behind it, can feature your favourite items without making your kitchen look messy by giving a crystal clear view into your cupboards.
If you’re living in a condo or apartment, chances are you might be more limited on floor space. But with strategic furniture, like glass tables, you can make the most of your space without having your home look and feel too busy. Glass tabletops have become increasingly popular for this reason since they are functional, transparent (or semi, depending on the design) and reflective so they won’t appear to consume too much space or natural light. This is perfect when you don’t want anything that’s big and bulky.
Bathroom Shower Enclosures
Another artsy use for patterned glass is in the bathroom. A glass shower enclosure can also let you maximize on space. Glass can provide the privacy that you want, along with the simplicity that you need, without making the room feel in any way confined.
Whether you have a home office or simply need a partition to break up a large area of your floor plan, patterned glass can be a helpful addition. You can soften an area or just keep your at-home work desk neatly tucked away from the main area of the living room.
The options are endless when it comes to the artsy uses for patterned glass. To learn more about where and how you can incorporate this into your home design, contact us at M&T Glass. We provide the best advice, workmanship, and products when it comes to any glass-related needs!
