In these uncertain times the home is becoming more important than ever, as we spend more time indoors our appreciation of home comforts has never been so important. For many our homes need to serve multiple purposes, our interior spaces need to be flexible environments for both work and relaxation.

One of the most popular rooms in the house for relaxation is the bathroom, for many it is their sanctum, a space to clear the mind (or hide from the kids).

For sleek, bright and airy bathroom interiors an ‘all-glass’ shower enclosure is the perfect addition. The wellbeing benefits of natural light are compelling and glass is the perfect material for an unrestricted flow of light.

Furthermore, glass is great for creating the illusion of space in smaller interior areas.

Striking a balance in the home between work and pleasure isn’t easy, especially is space is limited. Interior spaces and areas need to be flexible yet defined to ensure they are fit for purpose. Our home needs to be our sanctuary, ensuring a healthy wellbeing and a positive frame of mind.

“A home should be a stockade, a refuge from the flaming arrows of anxiety, tension and worry.”  Wilfred Peterson (Author)

Creating workspace isn’t always a straightforward process, some like to hide away in a dark room to focus, whilst many prefer a defined room or zone. Glass partitioning is an ideal solution for creating areas within a space, helping to define homeworking space from the lounge or the dining area from the kitchen.

Whether you prefer an on trend black framed Crittal style partition, a repositionable partition or frosted/printed glass to obscure the view whilst maintain light flow, the options are plentiful.

Glass fixtures and fittings are perfect components for ensuring effective daylighting in homes, specifically in areas where light can be restricted, for example bathrooms but also hallways and staircases.

Frameless glass balustrades are particularly well suited due to the ‘all glass’ look and the minimal ‘frame’ (fixing channel). Similarly, glass clamp balustrading, commonly used upon staircases in atriums and hallways to get the most out of the natural light to create light filled spaces.

Finally, to add the cherry to the top of the cake to create the perfect home sanctuary, consider the exterior. For the ultimate ‘welcome home’ feeling a glass canopy or glazed porch area or entrance lobby is the answer.

If you are thinking of incorporating shower screens, porches, balustrades or an aspect of glazing into your next project please feel free to contact the team at Glasstec Systems with your ideas.
