If you want to give your home or office a modern look, glass balustrade is a perfect choice to line your stairs and fence your balconies.
Besides, glass is easier to clean, and it won’t block the light from coming into your spaces.
If you’ve set your heart on a glass balustrade interior but aren’t sure how to choose the perfect one, we’ve compiled a list of all the things you should consider before making the purchase:
Do your homework
Your balustrade should be three things: safe, easy to maintain, and aesthetic.
Do your research by consulting with a glass service provider. Measure the correct length and width of the place where you want the balustrade and learn about the different types of glass offered by your glass provider.
Make sure that the balustrade you purchase is durable and easy to handle.
Make sure it complements your interior
Glass balustrade comes in many shapes, colors, and textures.
If you choose one that goes best with your home design, you’ll enhance the look of your house. A glass balustrade also gives the illusion of space. If you opt for a clear glass balustrade, your space will appear larger.
So, if you’re someone who likes wider indoor spaces, you should choose a clear glass balustrade.
Choose the right fittings
You can find three types of glass balustrades at your glass service provider: framed, semi-framed, and frameless glass balustrades.
The type of fitting you’ll get depends on the kind of balustrade you choose. For a framed and semi-framed glass balustrade, you’ll need a significant number of stainless-steel clamps.
But for a frameless glass balustrade, you need to make sure that the glass is highly durable and has excellent strength since it will mostly have to support itself without the use of a lot of clamps.
Handrails and posts are also installed according to the style of the balustrade. You can find these in stainless steel or wooden designs.
Is it budget-friendly?
Glass balustrades can also be a little expensive, depending on the type, style, and texture of the glass and the size of the area where you want to install it.
If you’re on a budget, choose a glass balustrade that you can manage to buy in it. Also, its always a good idea to compare prices before you make the purchase.
