How To Decorate Your Home With Glass

Glass is a material that has been used as a decorative and functional element in homes for hundreds of years. But, glass is still used to add a modern feel to a home and gives a greater sense of space. 

If you’re looking to create a living space that is airy and bright then incorporating glass throughout your home is a great way to do just that. 

There are many different ways of incorporating glass elements in various parts of the house so let’s take a look at some!

Mirrors are perfect for creating an illusion of space that is handy in tight spaces. They’re also great focal points, catching one’s eye instantly and looking particularly interesting over a fireplace or other large surface like your living room wall!

Make a splash(back)

Tired of looking at your old kitchen tiles? If so, choosing a glass splashback may be the solution. Glass is not only cleaner and more hygienic than tile but also looks great in any type of kitchen – modern or traditional. Available in various colours and styles to match your design preference, you’ll love how easy it will make cleaning up after cooking dinner!


Staircase balustrade

Glass balustrades provide a touch of modern sophistication to any building and have become increasingly popular as an architectural design choice. Glass balustrades are extremely durable, come in different designs that fit almost every style preference for your home and require very little maintenance.

Glass doors

It’s no doubt that glass doors are one of the most prominent glass features within any home. With sliding doors, french doors, and bifold doors becoming ever more popular. These are the most effective ways to bring more natural light directly into the home.

They are also fantastic for showing off more pleasant external areas of your home also, making the transition between your indoor and outdoor living areas seamless.

Glass walls/partitions

Prominent in more modern and contemporary homes, the installation of clear glass partitions can improve the transition from one room to another. With interior designers always looking for better ways to utilise any given space, glass partitions can complement almost any home.

For homes looking to achieve an open plan feel, glass partitions can be implemented in smaller doorways. This allows natural light to flow through the home and create an open plan feel.

Glass can be used to separate your shower area from your bathroom. These glass partitions are popularly clear or frosted, and add a sense of cleanliness to your room.

Glass furniture

There are many different ways to implement glass into your interior decor. Firstly, looking at adding glass furniture into your home can increase the perceived space within a room without losing the practicality of the furniture. Glass tables are perfect for coffee and side tables. With interior designers opting for thicker, safer glass, these can be striking features within your home decor.

Wardrobes are a fantastic place to opt for glass within the home. Whilst generally wardrobes can take up a fair amount of room space, opting for glass doors can increase the sense of spaciousness. If you would still like to retain some privacy, however, then you may want to install frosted glass.

Benefits of glass in interior design:

Now you know how to incorporate glass in your interior design, let’s look at why you should.

  1. Natural light

The benefits of natural light are pretty well-known. You’ll be happier, healthier and more energized when you let natural light into your home. 

Natural light is the best kind of illumination. Not only does it make you feel good physically and mentally, but it can also improve how your home looks as well!

Brighter living spaces means warmer homes which in turn saves energy usage on heating costs.

By incorporating glass throughout your interior, you can open up your living space and encourage natural light to shine through.

2. Draws the outside in

Indoor/outdoor living is a hot topic in the world of interior design and can be achieved through creative use of glass. It is all about drawing the outside world into a living space.

Glass is a great way to blur the lines between interior and exterior spaces and create a flow between the two. 

With large glass windows, for example, you can capture the beauty of your garden or surrounding views which will transform the appearance of your home. 

3. Invites a spacious feel

With high house prices, people are living in smaller homes with less space to spare. But it doesn’t have to be this way! You can create a greater sense of spaciousness without having to move by strategically incorporating glass into your home. 

Glass will not only give the illusion that you’re working with more square footage but also reflect light and make an area feel warmer than before – perfect for any room where natural sunlight is scarce.
