John Whitehead, managing director of Glass and Stainless in Cheshire, reveals how to use bespoke glass to create unique and stunning features that will transform your property in a few simple steps. 

1. Add luxury curtain walling systems to your home’s facade

Picture an entire wall of your home fitted with bespoke, made-to-order specialist toughened glass. Curtain walling systems are an ideal way to modernise the appearance of your home’s interior and exterior. Curtain walling allows natural light to flood the property, offering a light, airy feel and creating a seamless transition between your home and garden.

You can also create luxury feature windows and glass doors spanning the entire length of your home. Frosted and opaque glass finishes are available from Glass and Stainless to help retain your privacy, and you can even install coloured glass to create a beautiful lighting effect that will transform your home’s design. Our team of glass experts can help you achieve a flawless design, whatever you have in mind, and make the most of the natural light where you live. 

2. Create a stunning Juliet balcony

A Juliet balcony is a great way to make the most of your view - no matter where you're based. Whether you want to feel surrounded by nature and lovely landscapes or to feel truly immersed in a bustling city skyline. Juliet balconies help bring the outside in. 

Rooms from the first floor of your property will benefit from the additional light and openness that full-height balcony French doors will supply, and the increased space. 

You can opt for a frameless balustrade system for a sleek, minimalist feel, or pick from a range of stylish, lightweight aluminium frames, available in a range of coloured finishes for a unique touch.

Translucent finishes can help maintain your privacy, while still allowing ample light to pass through. Our anti-slip technology ensures your glass floors are perfectly safe to walk on.

We offer a full design and installation service and will be with you every step of the way, offering advice and guidance to help you find the perfect product for you.

5. Change your home’s layout with bespoke glass panel partitions

Build new areas into your interior layout using specially made glass panels. It’s a cost-effective and space-saving way to break up large rooms, making them feel cosy. Glass partition walls can help to prevent the spread of unwanted noise or cooking smells and create defined, beautiful spaces in open-plan homes. 

They are lightweight, won't intrude upon your home’s existing décor, and can also be easily constructed to fit any position and space, and our expert designers can offer tailored recommendations to help you make the most of your existing space.
