Granted railings are in place to keep you and your loved ones safe but they also serve an aesthetic purpose. They can add elegant lines to any house or building. Glass railings in particular, lend to a modern and sleek look. If you want an updated look in your home that lets light in and opens up your home then consider glass railings.
Here are some design idea and inspiration for the glass railings that could be in your home.
If you have a house with 360 degree views or any views at all why take away from the beauty of that landscape? Especially when sitting, the transparency of glass railing let’s you take in the full panoramic view.
Especially for outdoor reasons choose tempered glass as it will last through the seasons. It can be subject to harsh weather without being damaged. This makes it a cost effective choice due to its longevity.
Obviously fingerprints can be challenging to your glass continually clean, but glass railings take little cleaning maintenance. Simply use water and soap and you will have your transparent glass back.
A common design trend is coupling glass and aluminum. This adds to the contemporary look of glass. Aluminum and glass compliment each other nicely and would look well in an industrial style home.
Most importantly, glass railings are a safe option for your home that won’t break or shatter all while keeping an elegant look.
