Use Glass Walls For A Brighter and Visually Spacious Home

May 17, 2018

There is something about glass walls that leads to their popularity as a permanent fixture in many homes these days. Is it their instant injection of urban chic that gives any space that extra ooh la la? Or is it their ability to divide an open area while keeping it visually spacious? Whatever it is, glass is an extremely versatile medium that’s great at diffusing light, keeping the house bright and illuminated. Here are some homes that incorporate glass walls in fun and creative ways.

Keep things open and bright with glass walls

1. This study room with walls of glass exudes an open, no-secrets vibe. The white frames add some geometric interest that helps to heighten the austere feeling of the entire apartment. You know that there will never be any dullness in this apartment because of how bright it is, with sunlight pouring in through the wide windows.

2. Balance out the dark cool colours with natural lighting and glass walls. Glass walls are great for brightening up dark corners, and making a small space look visually larger (like the bedroom wardrobe), amplifying its urban appeal.

3. Enjoy living on the finer side of life? Then you will love this luxurious mini boutique that’s cleverly carved out of the space between the living room and hallway. The full glass wall with bold black frames looks like a posh storefront for a high-end boutique, and is the embodiment of class with glass.

4. The half-hacked wall may be done to death, but we have to admit that it has a functional appeal of offering a sense of open-ness in the otherwise dim and narrow corridor, and a tinge of privacy in the communal spaces.

5. Not really a wall per se; what gives glass doors that tiny edge over fixed glass walls is probably their winning ability to create the illusion of open space and actually open up to another room. The partition from the bedroom and study is seamlessly integrated into the surrounding dark-coloured walls, looking extra chic with those elegant black frames.

6. Why hide that beautiful bathroom behind opaque walls? Complement your all-dark interior with warm lightings and glass walls to make the space more inviting.

7. If you are the sort who enjoys cooking without any disturbance, this creative half-hack glass wall is what you need. Hungry guests can enjoy the cooking show outside the kitchen without getting in your way, and the glass door to the kitchen is also wonderful for keeping cooking fumes from invading the rest of the house.
