Five Benefits of Glass Walls in the Home

Home is where the heart is; a private place that many believe to be the best reflection of ourselves. For this reason and more, the interiors in your house are important to get right. It’s crucial that they facilitate a range of activities at home, bespoke to you. From relaxing, to eating, to spending time with family and friends, your interiors can go as far as to influence your mood, ensure comfort and support your wellbeing.

At Glass Partitioning UK, we have fitted thousands of glass partitioning into offices, schools, restaurants and more commercial spaces. Recently, glass partitions have become increasingly popular within the home, with clients looking to install contemporary glass walls in their houses, apartments and studios. There are many benefits of domestic glass partitioning, here are just the main five:

One – Maximised Light

Interior design 101: natural light is the ideal tool to bring homes to life. Natural lighting can enhance colours on existing interiors, brighten rooms and make them appear more spacious. Investing in glass walls and doors in residential areas is a great solution to increase the volume of natural light flooding into the home. This is due to the transparency that allows light rays to pass through the partitioning and shower your house in a sunny disposition.

Glass partitioning can shed some light not just on your home’s interiors, but also your mental wellbeing. Extensive research has shown a long list of benefits in relation to increased exposure to sunlight. This includes mood boosting influences and increased vitamin D. Natural daylight connects most of us to the outdoors, allowing us to experience the benefits of being in nature such as relaxation – exactly what the home is designed for. Increased light can also warm up a room. In this respect, glass walls and doors in your home can help to cut down on those energy bills!

Two – Acoustic Control

Domestic Glass Door

We have a range of acoustic glass types available with varying sound controls. This, coupled with the transparency of glass, allows an open plan design but advanced sound protection with noises from adjacent rooms being minimised. For more help deciding what glass is right for your domestic partitioning, check out our acoustic guide.

For those of us who have adapted to working from home, glass partitioning can therefore be a popular solution to divide a space for a home office. We ramble on (and on and on) about the benefits of using glass walls in the office (read our blog to find out more), and it is just as applicable within the home. Using acoustic glass walls and doors for your home office can create the ideal area for headspace to focus on work and important projects.

Three – Contemporary Style

With a range of glass options comes a range of available styles, perfect to suit personal designs in the house. Frameless glass walls and glass doors in the home, for example, can create a clean and contemporary appearance. The wonderful thing about our glass partitioning is that it can compliment an open plan design, whilst still dividing space, providing acoustic control and looking sleek.

Domestic Banded Glass

Glass partitioning in the home isn’t limited to a modern style however as many households have taken a liking to our popular banded glass partitions. When used in the home, this style of glass wall has a quirky, industrial finish. Whilst still granting houses with the benefits of frameless glass partitions, it uses aluminium framing to inject personality into the room. This art deco feature looks good in most homes, but particularly complements exposed features such as timbre beans, pipework and wooden floors for a raw, minimalist appearance.

Four – Versatility

Our homes are important to us so it’s vital that we take care of them. Installing glass walls into the home is an easy process that our team at Glass Partitioning UK can complete with minimal disruption to the rest of the house. In particular, our demountable glass partitioning is designed for ease of installation and removal. Using an aluminium framework, glass modules can be moved around without damaging interior features in the process, so your home stays protected.

Switchable glass partitioning offers versatility by alternating between two options: clear and frosted glass. This is perfect for spaces that need to alternate between different levels of privacy, using a remote control. Modern homeowners who are looking for alternatives to curtains or blinds may favour our smart glass partitioning in the home to create an impressive design feature with an abundance of versatility.

Five – Connecting the House

Glass walls and glass doors are perfect to connect rooms in the house. As previously mentioned, they complement open plan interior designs, but provide partitioning in areas that are necessary. Due to the transparent properties of glass, it connects rooms without the disadvantages of solid partitioning. This means you can be working in your home glass office, whilst keeping an eye on the rest of the household, or connect the kitchen and dining room in a stylish manner.
