Today open layouts are conquering the design and architecture world because they let using every inch of space and fill it with natural light coming from the windows. But sometimes privacy is a must, it’s really necessary, so how to achieve it without sacrificing all the rest? There’s a great idea for such cases: glass walled rooms! This is a new option which is going to be a trend, and it’s super comfy: you will still have enough light, the room won’t look bulky and you’ll get a unique design feature at the same time. If there’s not enough privacy, go for frosted glass or use curtains inside the room. Need some examples? Let’s have a look at them.
The most popular idea is to make a glass enclosed bedroom because it’s a great way to make this private space cozier in an open space. No space dividers are needed – make glass walls, framed or sleek ones, the bedroom and rest of the space will be filled with light. You may accent this space somehow else, for example, use wood for cladding only inside the glass cube, or go for some geometric details inside it.
Even an open layout needs some private spaces, and a bathroom is one of these. If you are a daring person, go for a glass cube bathroom – no partitions or anything. Such an idea is great for a personal walk-in closet space, where you can make a shower inside. You will see that more often bathrooms are made with curtains or of frosted glass – this type of glass won’t let much light going through but it’s super private and looks stylish – various types of glass are very trendy for decor.
A home office is present in most of homes, and in open layout it’s usually a nook somewhere. Highlight it with glass walls – framed or better sleek ones for a more professional look, to feel like in the best offices of the coolest companies of Wall Street. You can even make a meeting room like that if your office is inside your home, and don’t forget to highlight it somehow – with lights, geo touches, chic furniture and more.
Closets and wine cellars are among other rooms with glass walls – the first are to be private enough to get undressed and dressed, the second are made separate to keep a special temperature inside. And glass enclosed closets and wine cellars always look very special, so get inspired to make some.
