Q: How can I incorporate glass into my bathroom design?
A: Glass is very ancient material. And while inventing something new in the realm of glass making might not be an everyday occurrence, we can still enhance the strength of glass and vary bathroom designs through its use.
The main methods of enhancing the strength of glass and its safety are based on the latest production technologies. Today, glass is used to produce virtually all products, which is why glass objects are widely applied in the interiors of both living and non-living areas of the home. That being said, it’s one of the reasons why it’s so common to find it in bathroom interiors as well. What’s more, it makes them more spacious and airy, qualities that most agree add value.
Often in new bathroom design we come across the combination of a bathroom and a bedroom, where the doors are replaced with glass walls, movable panels or shields made of transparent or matte glass. The bathroom and bedroom combination creates an illusion of one common room which is important if the bathroom space is not very big. Using tinted, transparent or matte glass walls and/or open glass shelves is another way to create an invisible zoning element in a large bathroom, if the bath area is a little farther from the sink.
In addition to the variety of glass types found in bathroom design projects—transparent, matte, and tinted—you may also have seen a newer product, the variable-transparency glass—which has many great qualities. To start, it doesn’t break, is absolutely safe and adds an air of “mystery.” When the lights are on, it’s transparent, but it becomes matte when the lights go down.
Bathroom remodeling can give you an opportunity to make your space bright and airy with the use of glass. Another aspect you might consider would be color (bent, fused, roasted, sintered). This glass can be chosen not only for sinks, tubs, but also for bathroom furniture.
Stained glass can be a fashionable element in your bathroom too. It can decorate the wall adjoining the hall. Turn with a flip of the switch, you can enjoy the view of the stained glass from down the hall and vice versa.
There are many other creative ways you can use glass in your bathroom. Glass in the bathroom can do your bathroom space wonders
by adding just the amount of energy you want and need.
