Glass doors – inside and out

If you think that glass doors are reserved for commercial spaces, you may be overlooking a design trend that can transform your home. Framed and frameless glass doors are emerging as a hot design trend.

Frameless glass doors in a residential setting are most frequently found in bathrooms and showers. Frameless shower doors come in a variety of styles and can either slide open or pivot. If frameless glass appeals to you, but the transparency of the glass puts you off a bit, you can paint or frost the glass. Traditional frosted glass is made by chemical etching or sandblasting the surface of the glass. As an inexpensive alternative, you can paint the glass using Glassprimer™ glass paint. Using a frosted finish, you can approximate frosted glass for about $1 per square foot.

Glass doors used around the house can help transmit natural light throughout the space. Some rooms require privacy. In these cases, you can add curtains or use Glassprimer™ glass paint to obscure the view through the glass without interfering with the transmission of natural light.

Glass is extremely versatile in commercial spaces. It can be used effectively to divide an interior space without impacting the transmission of natural light. As an added benefit, glass is an excellent sound insulator. Using glass in the interior space can help control ambient noise in the workspace.

Adding color to glass is a snap with Glassprimer™ glass paint. Glassprimer™ glass paint can be tinted to match virtually any color in any major paint manufacturer’s paint palette. That means you can incorporate Glassprimer™ glass paint seamlessly into any decorating scheme.

Glassprimer™ glass paint is easy to work with, and is a certified low-VOC compound. In addition to its oil-based formulation, Glassprimer™ glass paint also comes in an environmentally friendly water-based formulation that’s safe to use and easy to clean up.
