Glass walls have always been one of the most popular modern design trends, but in 2020 we have been seeing glass fixtures crop up in homes and condos across the world like it’s the 70s again! We’ve always been fans of breaking down brick and mortar and replacing it with glass, but let’s properly investigate just what makes glass walling such a massive benefit for any home.
The Glass Craze Explained
If you are interested in bringing a glass wall into your home, how would you actually describe what it is? This seems like a straightforward answer, but you should be able to properly detail what goes into this construction type.
There are certain kinds of glass constructions, such as sliding glass doors, glass room dividers, glass walls and glass windows. The two most attractive features which glass options bring to a home include an incredible increase in soft and natural lighting, as well as a tasteful boosting of one’s sense of space.
Natural lighting is the best way to create an organic and uplifting ambiance within your home. While you can get electronic lighting to mimic this effect, nothing artificial could ever match sunlight’s magnificent and warming presence.
In terms of spaciousness, you can make an already large room feel like a hall and make a smaller room feel lofty. Glass sliding doors paired with wall-sized mirrors turn any room into a massive space, one which would feel a lot tighter without the glass fittings.
Other Benefits Of Glass Walls
Did you know that glass walls will bring a newfound level of healthiness to you and your family? As you can imagine, there is so much sunshine flooding into a home with glass doors that its occupants will never want for vitamin D.
But there are other subtler benefits to the increased level of sunshine afforded by glass walls. You may have wondered why most offices are plastered with glass walling and glass sliding doors? Humans are naturally more productive, happier, and can focus better with natural lighting, as opposed to the harsh artificial effects of electronic lighting.
A person bathed in sunshine throughout the day will find it much easier to sleep at night, as opposed to those exposed to electronic lighting. You will find that your blood pressure begins to lower and that you have an abundance of energy leftover at the end of a workday for exercise.
Whether your home is nestled deep in the woods, or up high above sea level, being able to enjoy a great view of the world around your home beyond your balcony or terrace is breathtaking.
This is the final big benefit which we will discuss for now, which is having an incredible amount of awareness of the area around you with glass walls. If you have young children, being able to see into their play and living areas is also a huge plus in terms of safety and monitoring.
