Balustrades are mostly seen at homes to support balconies or staircases. These generally come in a variety of forms – wood, iron, glass, steel and so on. There are a couple of benefits of the one made out of glass which makes it the most popular choice especially in the era of modern architecture.
Adds to the beauty of your house
No doubt, but a glass balustrade adds a touch of sophistication and elegance to your home or business place. Glass can adjust to the inside as well as outside light adding to the beauty front.
Glass comes with hassle free and easy cleaning and maintenance. Balustrades made of other materials are hard to clean as these are made of materials which respond adversely to any cleaning solution often either leaving marks or stains. Wiping a glass with a quality cleaning solution could be very easy and even if this leaves some scratches in the process, a simple polishing could restore the glow back. These balustrades are equally perfect for pool fencing.
Gives way to light
Always wanted a room where you get plenty of light? Glass can not only add a touch of beauty, but the best part is it does not interfere with light. If your house overlooks the swimming pool or the children’s play area, glass panes ensure you are not deprived of the wonderful view. This also prevents your home from extra lighting during the daytime even as natural light is able to illuminate most of your house.
Adds more space virtually
Visually, having a balustrade made of glass makes an illusion of your room having more than the actual space. This is one of the best parts of using a clear see through glass in the balustrade which makes this its unique selling point (USP).
Glass often comes in various textures, colours and could be framed in many ways.
Glass is durable although most of us feel it is very delicate. Unlike wood which is often exposed to pest infestation or abrasion due to corrosion, glass has a high lifetime with slight changes with its age which is hard to perceive with the naked eye. This makes it values add to your home making it a good investment.
