THROUGH THE LOOKING GLASS This December, add the wow factor to your interior with a stylish new design trend taking the property industry by storm. As the festive season approaches, often our homes are filled with friends and family so why not get them talking for all the right reasons this year? What’s more, as living spaces get smaller and smaller, homeowners are often looking for new ways in which to open up their living space. Spaceslide have the answer and according to them, we should all use a little more glass in our homes. The most effective way of allowing in more light, glass doors, room dividers and sliding wardrobe doors are proving a great design choice and practical solution for the modern family home. Spaceslide’s resident interior designer, Andy Briggs, explains the increase in popularity: “There was a time when living space was all about open-plan, but now escaping to snugs and sanctuaries is an important part of busy family life.” He continues: “Glass doors and dividers are the architectural answer to this. Allowing light in while simultaneously providing privacy, they also reduce noise without causing isolation, meaning family members can be unwinding in different rooms, but won’t be entirely cut off from each other. Having all the benefits of open plan living, but allowing the option to close yourself off if you need a few hours to relax, is easy and doesn’t incur extensive labour costs.” Add a contemporary twist, while keeping the family connected this December. The use of glass in today’s homes is more than a way to divide up a bigger room into smaller areas. Extra storage space created by glass partitions to corner off the edge of a room is also a popular choice. Likewise, installing glass doors in the hallway means muddy shoes and umbrellas are hidden away. In addition to this, having doors that slide rather than open outwards allows for more space in the room. This is particularly important in the bedroom where space can often be an issue. Sliding wardrobe doors offer an effective storage solution while maximising space within the room. Another key trend in the interior world this Christmas is mirrored glass, which offers even further benefits by adding depth to a room. Spaceslide’s mirrored glass sliding wardrobe doors are bespoke and fit the space from floor to ceiling, offering more storage space. Customers can also enhance the doors by choosing from a variety of coloured glass, adding individuality and vibrancy into the bedroom. The flexibility of glass also means homeowners can change décor and colour palette as often as they like. Glass is versatile and tones well with all colours instantly adding style and elegance to any living space this festive season.
