If you’re looking to incorporate decorative glass into your home, we guarantee Johnson Brothers will be able to find something to suit your needs, and with custom options you can really make your home stand out.
Not to mention, decorative glass is a great way to boost your home’s curb appeal, and the better the appeal, the higher the value of your home. Of all of the features you could add to your entry door and windows, decorative glass has the potential to make the biggest impact. So, let’s take a look at what decorative glass is.
Simply put, decorative glass is a type of glass that has been textured, patterned, frosted, carved, colored, or stained. If you’re a fan of color, then stained glass might be for you. Maybe you want an intricate design without a pop of color? Carved glass is your solution. Are you looking for privacy? Easy: privacy glass can do the job. Whatever your cup of tea, any type of glass can be customized to fit your needs.
Along with the style of decorative glass you choose, each type of glass works in its own way to provide a unique touch or purpose, varying from design to privacy. Although different types of decorative glass provide a range of aesthetic options and placements, they all provide similar benefits in terms of safety and beauty.
Every homeowner knows the importance of safety, but did you know decorative glass can provide another layer of protection to your home? Not only does most decorative glass block the view from the outside of your home, but most entry doors have tempered glass which is substantially stronger than clear glass.
One of the most obvious benefits of incorporating decorative glass is aesthetics. Like any decorative feature in or on the outside of your home, decorative glass is a great way to show off your sense of style and personality. When incorporated in your entry door, decorative glass adds visual interest and becomes the focal point of your entryway.
