Giving class to the glass
While we are always much excited to style ourselves in new clothes and makeup with the every season's trends, we seldom come up with ideas to decorate our living spaces. After all, home is where the heart is, and the décor of your home tells a great deal about yourself. A very simple technique used to give your house a creative makeover within a short budget is to play with glass decorations, be it tinted or stained, on the otherwise mundane Thai glass doors really add a welcome flair. Let us look at some of the ways in which glass may be used to decorate your house
Sea glass may be used widely for both interior decor and the outdoors and can create a seaside feel for you right in your home. It comes in shades of dark navy to mild periwinkle, bright azure and cheerful baby blue. For example, just to add a little glam to your apartment garden, simply pave out a small path with sea glass and it will resemble a blue shimmering water body, something straight out of a fairytale -- surely a sight to marvel upon among the drudgery of urban life.
STAIN IS GAIN
The ancient craft of stained glass is getting a modern makeover, with decidedly secular applications and colours. Stained glass can be used anywhere in the house, including exterior décor. From bay windows to the kitchen island to headboards, stained glass can become the ultimate decoration. It doesn't have to be too ornate or intricate as stained glass, you can choose any design that suits your interiors' theme. Stained glass is warm and colourful; it's meant to brighten up our otherwise cold, minimalistic, technology-driven world. If a more modest dose of stained glass decadence is what you are looking for, stained glass walls or large windows is your answer. By incorporating both colour and dimension, stained glass walls place modern extravagance and sophistication as the centre stage and radiate a variety of coloured lights throughout the day. Works like these are not just architectural accents, rather have the potential to become modern works of art.
ALL THINGS TINTED
Window tinting patterns redefine "decorative window" by delivering multilayered décor. Firstly, windows and glass themselves can be fitted in interesting patterns that allow light to come into rooms in different ways. Secondly, the patterns applied with the decorative window tint can create beautiful pictures, shapes, shades and features to add character to your glass walls, doors or partitions. The window tint also creates gorgeous light patterns to be reflected into rooms and onto the floor. When sunlight beams in through the window, either the silhouettes of your designs, the varying depths of patterns or the colour of your tint can be transmitted and reflected all over your rooms. Decorative window tints add depth and character to the glass features. This play of light will add a sense of agility and overall cheeriness to the house, making it a much welcome space.
