A feature was written in the i-build magazine which focused on advice from IQ Glass about how to choose the right glazing for projects. It can be hard when building or renovating homes to choose the right glazing for the project as there are so many products on the market. In this feature IQ Glass runs through all the glazing options available.
Seamless connections between the indoor and outdoor environments are a well sought-after design for modern homes. Large glazing installations are great as they create an ingress of natural light into the internal living spaces while connecting the homeowners to their garden. "Sliding doors are a fantastic option when looking to exploit panoramic views of the outdoor scenery". Whereas bifolding doors "universally allow for the whole length of the aperture to be open due to the concertina feature".
"Extensions are a popular home renovation project to add additional living space but also enhance the existing property". Using glass, as the main building material isn't often thought about, however, using glass to enhance properties is definitely an idea to consider. Glass Box Extensions not only create a contemporary take on conventional conservatories but also "flood the internal living spaces with light as well as create an indoor-outdoor living environment".
Within the article, frameless glass balustrades were discussed as a "popular feature of architectural glazing which creates a stunning addition to modern homes whether they are installed internally or externally".
