5 creative ways to use painted glass in the home

Wednesday 3rd August, 2016

Painted glass is bang on trend at the moment, and no wonder. Sleek, contemporary, hygienic and easy to maintain – it’s got a lot going for it!

If you love the look of painted glass and want some creative inspiration on how to incorporate it into your home design, read on…

1. Painted glass splashbacks



One of the most popular applications for painted glass is glass splashbacks and glass worktops. And no wonder. Easy to clean and look after, extremely hygienic, and with stylish and contemporary good looks, you’re clearly on to a winner with a painted glass splashback or worktop.

But it’s not just for the kitchen – glass splashbacks and worktops look terrific in the bathroom too.

And if you use a reputable and trusted glass supplier such as Peterlee Glass, your glass splashbacks will only be made using toughened glass – so you know they’ll be safe, strong and looking good as new for years to come.

2. Painted mirror glass


Painted glass looks fabulous when used as a decorative effect on mirrors, or as a standalone piece of painted glass artwork for the wall. You can even add your own unique design to a mirror, personalising your home décor and style.

3. Painted glass balustrade


A glass balustrade is an impressive addition to any home – whether it’s up the stairs, along the landing or even outside around the terrace or balcony. Using painted glass for your balustrade can really help to put your own stamp on your home design, and can tie your glass balustrade in with the rest of your home décor perfectly.

4. Painted glass floors


Glass floors look pretty spectacular however you use them. Painted glass floors take it to the next level.

Create a dramatic staircase, design an impressive focal point to a mezzanine floor, or add interest to your garden landscaping with painted glass floor tiles, it’s up to you. Whatever you choose, it’s guaranteed to enhance your home and look amazing.

5. Painted glass shower screen


Everyone knows how much a glass shower screen can enhance a bathroom’s design. They’re sleek, contemporary and so much more hygienic than the alternative of a shower curtain. But have you ever thought of using painted glass for your shower screen or glass panel?

A painted glass shower screen looks stunning and can help create more privacy. It also means your shower can be colour-matched to the rest of your décor – or can become the central design feature of your bathroom.

There are so many different options when it comes to incorporating painted glass into your home design – the only limit is your imagination!
