Glass is a material that lends itself to many applications in the field of furniture.
Not only for windows and decorative elements for the home but also from a structural point of view, as a solution capable of transmitting a feeling of continuity to the interiors, also giving an overall more modern, practical, spacious and bright air.
In fact, internal glass walls are an important element, both functionally and aesthetically, which is why they are increasingly integrated into homes.
On the market there are a series of alternatives that are well suited to different contexts, small and large, as well as to specific needs: it is possible to opt forfixed or sliding glass walls , the latter ideal for giving a dynamic aspect to the housing complex. A solution to separate different environments without dividing them, also increasing the sense of depth related to closed spaces.
It is to all intents and purposes an effective, elegant and trendy choice, as well as extremely practical for what concerns the installation.
So let’s analyze together the various aspects related to the choice of one or more glass walls, to have a complete view on the subject and understand if it represents the right solution for our home. Why choose a glass partition wall: the advantages
The advantagesderiving from the choice of a glass partition wall for the rooms of the house are really many: first of all it allows to maintain a visual continuity creating at the same time a subdivision of the zones; and particularly suitable for small and dark rooms, with few or no windows that allow the passage of light.
Furthermore, it is able to redefine spaces even in the presence of dark fixtures, as well as giving a particular touch to a house perhaps without character, recalling, for example, the typical style of Parisian lofts or ateliers.
Finally, a question that is far from secondary is that relating to prices: for these solutions – contrary to what one might think – the costs are not so inaccessible, quite the contrary. Of course, a lot will depend on the choice of materials, both in terms of glass and finishes, however indicatively we are talking about an expense that is around 3,000.00 Euros.
The benefits do not end here, in fact, in the face of more spacious environments that favor natural lighting (even more if you decide for a light closure, so as to keep the feeling of spaciousness of the environment unchanged), insert a wall The internal glazing also makes it possible to contain any heat losses in a completely open space between adjacent rooms (for example in the case of a large entrance corridor opening onto the living area).Internal glass walls: tips for use
When to use glass windows
It is possible to exploit the nature of these elements mainly to separate rooms with different functions but for which you want to maintain a visual connection.
Alternatively, the glass walls are able to integrate a “passing space” within the main room of which it is part (this is for example the case mentioned above, where a corridor crosses the area used as a living room).
The natural and facilitated lighting, this means, in parallel, that the need for artificial light decreases, also contributing to an overall saving. In particular, this advantage refers to the passage of light in the less illuminated service areas.
Finally, the use of a glass partition wall could be the perfect solution to highlight an evocative environment , around which to build the entire house: an example could be a small veranda, the perfect space to read and relax in the green, in an atmosphere of absolute tranquility. Internal glass walls: materials and patterns
We understand that there are many different ways to use internal glass walls.
Depending on the application, it is possible to choose from an equally wide range of models and, in this sense, also between different types of materials, useful for creating the most suitable element for the purpose.
There are many types of crystals but in general the most recommended is laminated glass (for safety reasons) which, transparent or frosted according to use, gives a completely open space effect or, in the second case, favors the intimacy of a room without completely isolating it, while still letting the light filter through.
As for the finishes, surely you have to pay attention and protect the metal parts with the appropriate transparent or colored paints, protecting the structure from the risk of corrosion.
Also in this case the choice is varied, passing from metallic materials such as aluminum, steel (possibly galvanized, more expensive but able to accommodate various architectural choices) or wrought iron (for more rustic or stylish solutions. industrial) to wood, both with a natural and painted effect, ideal for example for solutions to be integrated into classic, vintage contexts (for example, if you were to renovate an old room originally intended for artisanal or artistic activities, the choice of keeping the windows with wooden profiles will help to preserve the charm of that era) or Mediterranean, to increase the feeling of warmth of the entire environment.
By contacting a glassmaker, he can also cut particular profiles to measure , able to fit into the installation site of the windows, giving back a unique product.
The main modelsglass partition walls from which to select the most suitable for your living environment are full-height glass walls (from floor to ceiling) rather than solutions supported by a masonry base.
A further subdivision concerns the opening systems for sliding windows which are the main alternative to fixed walls.
In general, we could say that the latter are the best when the goal is to delineate the various spaces. Otherwise, the sliding ones are more versatile and you can choose to make the doors disappear inside a plasterboard wall rather than slide them one over the other. Glass walls and windows for the kitchen, hall and living room
Imagine natural lighting in your windowless kitchen
Would you like to give your apartment the typical romantic air of Parisian houses in a functional environment
Or the elegant and modern atmosphere typical of ateliers
In one or all of these cases, the internal glass walls are probably the right solution for you.
Thanks to these elements you can, safely and without any fear, decide to open your dark kitchenette to the living area, enjoying a unique environment even if divided into their respective functions, without being afraid that the smell of what you are spreading. cooking and, at the same time, benefiting from natural lighting and the possibility of chatting with family and guests without any visual limitations.
In this case, the ideal could be a continuous glass wall at half height , resting on a low wall or a piece of furniture that acts as a partition with the kitchen or living area. If you have children, our advice is to consider installing the windows starting from about 1m in height, so as to keep them cleaner.
Another example concerns modern apartments, especially in city contexts, where environments such as the kitchen and the living room are united for functional issues related to limited spaces. Here a full-height glass partition wall can be the ideal solution, especially if the choice fell on colored sliding to add a touch more to the house and, if necessary, contribute on a practical level, isolating the kitchen from the rest of the room when it was not in order or clean. Glass walls: the installation
We have deliberately separated this particular aspect from the other advantages to finish our article with a flourish. So if you are convinced and have decided to add one or more glass walls inside your home, you should also know that the installation is anything but complex.
Turning to your chosen supplier, ask them to come and do an inspection, even if the walls have been recently built. It is necessary to make sure that the dimensions of the space are measured correctly, as well as the conditions of the ceiling, floors and any anchors that must actually be suitable for this integration.
As far as installation is concerned, of course, everything depends on the type of glass walls chosen: in case it has a frame, the operation will consist in fixing both to the floor and to the ground; otherwise, in the case of tracks, the doors of the glass partition wall will be suspended, so simply a few stops for the fixed parts will be inserted on the floor.
In general, it is possible to all intents and purposes to state that the insertion of these elements in a finished house is a simple and minimally invasive job. On a practical level, actual editing doesn’t require much more time and effort than a library.
