En suite glass trends in home remodeling

A bedroom is arguably one of the most intimate spaces in a home, so it makes sense that remodelers and homeowners alike have gladly embraced the en suite trend. En suite refers to a bedroom and bathroom that are incorporated into a single, undivided space.

It sounds romantic, but let’s just say that bathrooms are bathrooms and bedrooms are bedrooms. Sometimes, a little division is desirable. How can you create an en suite look while still respecting the divergent natures of a bedroom and a bathroom? By using glass, of course!

Having an entirely open bathroom within a bedroom can pose some problems. Bathrooms feature running water. Whether you’re showering, bathing or taking care of other natural functions, you’re going to use some water. Showers and baths (to a lesser extent) aerosolize water, and the tiny water droplets can get everywhere. Over time, that can promote mold or mildew growth if the water isn’t carefully contained.

Glass walls around the bath area can preserve the open character of an en suite design while providing some highly desirable containment for aerosolized water. Glass is easy to care for. It can be cleaned using ordinary household cleaners. Since it doesn’t absorb moisture, it makes a great barrier that can inhibit mold or mildew growth in areas not directly associated with the bathroom.

If privacy is desired, you can decorate the glass using Glassprimer™ glass paint. Glassprimer™ glass paint is specially engineered to bind with the surface of the glass. It will not peel, chip or fade once the paint has cured. You can determine the level of coverage you want to apply, and it can deliver a frosted glass look for about $1 per square foot. Better still, it can be tinted to match virtually any major paint manufacturer’s palette, so you can incorporate Glassprimer™ glass paint into your paint plan with supreme confidence.
