Installing custom windows and doors on your Winnipeg, MB home can greatly improve its style and function. However, you can make your custom windows and doors even better by installing custom glass as well. There are many different kinds of custom glass, each one with great home benefits. Some of the top kinds are:
Privacy glass is a lightly blurred glass that prevents people from seeing into your home without filtering too much natural light. There are privacy glass options that have an obscurity rating of 9 or higher, meaning it’s almost impossible to see through for ultimate privacy. Privacy glass can also be decorative, with patterns like frosted leafs, pebbles and rain.
Safety glass is a tempered option that is more resistant to shattering and breaking that standard replacement window glass. Typically, window glass breaks into either big, dangerous pieces or tiny shards that can cause serious injuries. Tempered safety glass breaks into small, round pieces with no sharp edges, greatly reducing injury risk.
Decorative glass can come in almost any color, size or shape. Add grilles and grids for added support with the look of individual panes, or stained glass for color and personality. You can even order glass to fit unusual replacement window shapes like round, triangle, or diamond to fit unique spaces around your home.
Etched glass is another kind of decorative glass. It comes in eight common yet distinctive patterns including single, double, diamond, petal, trellis and more. Etched glass is also available in different etching styles like shadow, frosted and polished. Combine different patterns and styles for unique replacement window looks that match your home décor and personality.
These are just a few of the custom glass options you can choose for your custom windows and doors. All of these different types are ideal for different uses and locations around your home. For example, privacy glass is a great option for bathroom windows, as it boosts privacy but still lets in lots of natural light. You can even use privacy glass inside your home for shower doors or dividers.
Safety glass is perfect for any window in your home, but especially for those in potentially unsafe areas. You can install safety glass in windows around wet or slippery areas in case you fall and hit the window. Decorative glass is a great choice for any window that you want to add interest or make a focal point. Use stained glass in your entry way windows to greet guests with personality, or put etched glass in your kitchen windows to cast fun shadows on the counter.
