A Quick Guide to Window Glass Designs For your Home
You can keep the functionality of your windows intact and yet transform them into pieces of classic or contemporary art by using different types of window glass design. Let’s have a small tour of various glass window designs for homes.
The Main Door-Attached Window Glass Design
The main door-attached window glass design has become a popular way to give your home a modern touch. The sunlight filtering through the windows will make the entryway space seem larger. It illuminates the space by refracting natural light. Hence, doors with a window glass design can make your entrance and living room a completely happening place with added ethereal beauty. You can opt for a glass frosting design for added privacy.
Tip: This type of glass frosting design will look good on your modular wardrobe design or gloss wardrobe design.
The main door in the image above is made of a sturdy wooden frame complemented by simple, chic frosted glass window designs. The pattern on the wooden frame and the pattern etched on the glass windows are in unison with each other, making it a beautiful piece of art.
Sliding Window Glass Design
Sliding window glass designs are multi-functional and aesthetically pleasing because they easily merge the interiors of your home with the exteriors. The sliding glass window design seen in the image above can help you connect with nature and boost your well-being.
The design consists of two window panes, one of which is fixed and the other movable. A movable window pane is slid along a track that is fitted in the frame itself. This arrangement allows you to open or close the windows very easily. Sliding window glass designs are perfect to use in your kitchen, whether it is a straight modular kitchen or an island modular kitchen.
At HomeLane, you can choose from multiple glass window designs for homes to satisfy your budget and taste.
Frosted Window Glass Design
This glass design type was invented in the Victorian era. The love for opulence in those times pushed people to come up with the process of acid-etching or ‘french embossing’ glass in delicate hues of white and other diffused shades. The main purpose of this window glass design was to decorate windows and doors with the additional benefit of privacy and functionality.
Technically, frosted glass is a transparent sheet of glass that has turned into an opaque sheet due to sandblasting or acid etching. You can also achieve this frosting effect by applying vinyl stencils or by spraying canned frosted glass.
You can use a frosted glass window design for your bathroom area as shown in the picture above, where exclusivity and privacy are both maintained. It also gives a sleek, elegant, yet lavish look in a limited space.
Another option in frosted glass window designs is a skylight. Using normal glass for skylight windows will let in heaps of natural light into your home but it can get uncomfortable at times. The use of frosted glass in place of normal glass in skylight windows turns the solar glare into diffused soft lighting, which can transform the entire look and feel of your interiors. Frosted glass can be used in a kitchen wardrobe design with L shaped modular kitchen or a U-shaped modular design.
