There’s a surprising number of people that don’t know you can have glass railings in your home. These are either frameless of have a metal frame that the glass panes attach to. While these beautiful railings have merit all in their appearance, we want to talk about some fun perks to glass railings as well. Here are some ways glass railings can improve your life that you might not have thought of.
The first and most obvious of the perks to glass railings is that they promote visibility. For homes with lofted second floors or stairways that are directly beside the living room, this is fantastic. Railings with bars or other such barriers make it hard to see from one side to the other.
From a loft, you can only get a clear view of the first floor by completely approaching the railing. Forget sitting in an armchair and looking down. All you’ll see are railing bars. With glass, this is no problem.
Decals and Decorating
This is especially valuable if you have kids in your home. You know those plastic decals you can stick to the window for holidays? In the winter it might be snowflakes, snowmen, Christmas trees, or any number of other things. In autumn, it might be pumpkins, spiders, witches, or colorful leaves. No matter what your subject of choice is, you can now bring this tradition further indoors. Glass railings are the perfect place to stick these decals, giving a little festive spirit to the inside of your house.
Don’t stop there! Decals aren’t the only holiday decorations that can adorn your glass railings. You can also dress them with garlands or lights. Plus, because they’re glass and can be easily washed off, you can even use paint pens on them. You know, the ones people use to write, “Class of 2020,” or, “Just Married,” on their car windows. Bring the celebration inside the home by decorating your glass railings however you like.
While this isn’t as refined as garlands and lights, you can also decorate your railings with photos or children’s artwork. While tape residue may take a little elbow grease or specialized cleaner to get off, it’s very effective. By placing a photo, face out, against the back side of the glass, you’ve turned your glass railings into a picture frame. Do this with a lot of photos and you have a beautiful collage.
Document your kids’ childhood. Spread the love with pictures of you and the love of your life. Make your home your friends’ home by putting up photos of your years of adventures together. The possibilities are as vast as your own creativity.
