Glass is very ancient material. Now it's very difficult to invent something new in glass making. Though we can still enhance the strength of the glass and vary the bathroom design.
The main methods of enhancing the strength of glass and its safety are based on the latest production technologies. Today glass is used to produce virtually all products, that's why glass objects are widely applied in the interiors of living and non-living premises. But mainly it is found in the bathroom interiors: it makes these rooms spacious and airy.
Quite often there are lots of design projects where we come across the combination of a bathroom and a bedroom, where the doors are replaced with the glass walls, movable panels or shields made of transparent or matte glass. This combination creates an illusion of one common room which is very important if the bathroom space is not big enough.
Tinted, transparent or matte glass walls, open glass shelves can become an “invisible" zoning element in a large bathroom, where the bath area is rather remote from the wash stand. Even the low decorative walls will make the interior look heavy, but the glass walls will make it more functional and cozy.
Among a variety of glass types presented (transparent, matte, tinted), a new product - variable-transparency glass appeared recently in the stores. It does not break, it is absolutely safe and adds an air of some mystery in the bathroom aura: when the lights are on - it is transparent, but it becomes matte when the lights go down.
New bathroom installation or old bathroom remodeling would give you an opportunity to make the interiors bright and airy. You may use colour (bent, fused, roasted, sintered) glass, it will shine with all the colours of the rainbow under the halogen waterproof spotlights. This glass is used to produce not only washbasins, bathtubs and worktops of the bizarre form, but also glass furniture: it does not overload the area and it does not make even the smallest bathroom look narrow.
Glass floor in the new design (a special kind of glass with anti-slip surface is used for it) is a very original idea, it is also comfortable and functional - when the upper lights are off such floor becomes a magic source of light. Besides, there is such a great variety of glass floors. The floor can be made of color glass with or without highlighting, it can have illuminated elements in the form of still-life of shells, sand and pebble.
When the bathroom has several zones, you can arrange them at different levels. Glass edges of the stairs with illumination can be a perfect decorative component in such large room. Their light combined with the water flows reflecting in the mirrors will create inimitable sense of the magic palace.
Stained glass is a fashionable element of the bathroom interiors now. It can decorate the wall adjoining the hall. Then on turning the lights in the bathroom, you can enjoy the view of the stained glass from the hall and on the contrary: the light in the hall will be enough to take the bathroom in the romantic atmosphere. The translucent ceiling as well as decorative illuminated alcoves will turn the usual ritual of taking bath or shower into a more pleasant procedure, in the aesthetic sense.
The more glass you have in your bathroom, the more attractive it is, with the illusion of mystery and you will unravel it every time you expose your body to the warm sprays of the shower or taking aroma bath.
The exclusive glass interior is able to work wonders: leaving your bathroom, every time you will feel full of energy you cannot do without.
