Using Decorative Glass Windows to Add a Touch of Class to Your Home

Tuesday 1st September, 2015

If you’re looking to add a little class to the home, decorative glass windows are a great choice. With numerous different types available, there’s something to fit all preferences. Below you’ll discover everything you need to know about the different types of decorative glass, its uses and the look each one provides.

Different types of decorative glass windows

On your search for decorative glass windows, you’ll come across a few different varieties. These include:

·         Frosted

·         Self cleaning

·         Laminated

·         Patterned

Decorative frosted glass windows tend to be one of the most popular options available. Not only do they look incredibly elegant, they also reduce the amount of light passing through the window. This can be really useful on bright sunny days. They also provide additional privacy as you cannot see straight through them. This makes them an ideal choice for bathroom windows.

Self cleaning decorative glass is another popular option. If you don’t want the additional hassle of getting the windows cleaned frequently, this could be the right option for you. Covered in a special coating, the glass will stay cleaner for longer. You can choose from a wide selection of designs and colours to fit your individual needs.

Laminated decorative glass windows typically contain two panels of glass. You can choose from hundreds of different designs. Both the outer layers and the inner layer can be created with decorative glass.  While not as strong as double glazed windows, laminated glass does have its advantages. It’s often used for shop windows and shopping centres. If you’re looking to give the home a clean, elegant look then decorative laminated glass could be the answer.

Finally patterned decorative glass tends to feature a texture imprinted into the glass. It’s similar to frosted glass in the fact it limits the visibility of the window. This again makes them an ideal option for bathroom windows. The most common patterns you’ll find etched into the glass are floral. This type of window provides a modern, sophisticated look.

Choosing the best decorative glass windows for your home

There are a few factors you need to consider before choosing decorative glass windows for your home. How transparent do you want them to be? The placement of the windows will make a big difference to the style you should opt for. Where are you having them installed? No matter which type you opt for, they are all available in a huge choice of colours and designs. It can help to get advice from a professional glass manufacturer UK such as Peterlee Glass. They employ various design experts who can help you to choose the best decorative glass for the home.  

Overall decorative glass windows can really help to update the look of the home and add a unique visual appeal. Why not complement the look with other glass products in the home? Glass splashbacks for example are an excellent addition to the kitchen. Easy to clean and maintain, they help to add a modern style to the kitchen and will look great alongside decorative glass windows.
