Add Glass Railings To The Areas Of Your Home For Stylish Safety

by Riley Chapman

You have many options when finishing up your renovated porch, deck, or other refurbishments around your home. Glass is a material that you may not have considered, and glass railings bring a modern aesthetic to the spaces in your home and on your property that will benefit from this added safety feature.

Some ways to integrate glass railings around your home include the following:

Decks.

Glass is ideal around your decks and spaces where you want to preserve the scenic beauty of the view without any interference from conventional railings or fixtures. The translucent glass railings also bring a futuristic look to your deck, giving it a modern style that may be the perfect complement to your contemporary home design. Take a detour from more traditional wood and metal railings with some crisp, clear glass; talk with contractors about the practicality of glass railings with your current structures.

Porches.

One of the reasons to add glass railings to your porch is ease; these are simple to clean and work well in heavy traffic areas or spaces where kids or pets may hang out. These meld well with any facade, and provide a seamless way to add safety without altering the overall look of your home. These railings won't detract away from the facade of your home, blending in seamlessly with the surroundings.

Stairways.

Give your stairs or steps a crisp, linear look with glass railings, which typically will match any risers, material, or style of stairs, and provide a sturdy railing that makes your stairs look less boxy and more chic. These are also easy to clean and easy to eliminate fingerprints from the surface, making everyday maintenance a breeze. For a quick fix, remove carpeting from dated stairs and risers and add glass railings to bring your stairway into the 21st century.

Indoors.

Glass railings will instantly give your interiors a modern makeover that doesn't cost a fortune. Add these to lofts, cellar-ways, baths, and even as a barricade between rooms for a chic, sophisticated look that serves an important function in the home. Update more traditional spaces with glass rails to provide translucent division between distinct spaces in your home for versatility and function.

Modern glass railings are a great option when you want to give the home a fresh, updated look. Talk with contractors about using these to provide safety and security around your home, while also enhancing the aesthetics of any space with the contemporary look of glass. Update your home's railings with cool, clear glass for something different and distinctive.
