The benefits of natural light in homes and offices is well known and architects and designers continue to experiment with materials including glass to harness the power of sunlight and to build living spaces which are welcoming, bright, fresh and airy. In the 80's architect I.M Pei demonstrated how glass could be used to create a well-executed merging of classical and modernist architecture with The Louvre Pyramid and today's London skyline is dominated by striking structures which exploit the beauty and benefits of glass design.
Advancements in technology means that now we are not restricted to how and where we can use glass in the home, Toughened or tempered glass as it is sometimes known is 7 times stronger than ordinary window glass and it no longer requires a frame to hold it in place. Once only seen in shopping centres, frameless glass is now making its way into the home and stainless steel fittings make for a contemporary and structural modern look.
Frameless glass doors increase the sense of space and light in your home and there is no restriction on where they can be used – separating a kitchen from a dining area, for a bathroom or en-suite or to close off a conservatory. Glass doors can easily be fitted into an existing frame and can replace light restricting wooden doors.
