Decorating in kitchens and baths can be challenging. The space is entirely necessary in a home, but they’re often small, especially in older homes. Their size limits what can be done, so without making major changes to the design of a home, it can be difficult to open up these spaces.
Glass is a versatile decorating material
Glass can play a major role in opening up space in small homes. Glass is an ideal decorating medium because it offers so many benefits. It’s sophisticated, inexpensive, plentiful , cost-effective and safe. It’s easy to clean, care for and replace. It stands up to even the harshest household cleaners. It’s impervious and easily sanitized. In addition, it permits the transmission of natural light and easily opens up the space in a room of any size.
Glass can be used effectively in kitchen surfaces, whether vertical or horizontal. It is easily cut, shaped, mounted, framed and painted. Ordinary paint doesn’t adhere to glass because it is designed to stick to porous surfaces. Glassprimer™ glass paint is specially engineered to bond with glass surfaces by modifying the surface of the glass. Once cured, Glassprimer™ glass paint does not chip, fade or peel, and will stand up to high humidity, significant changes in temperature and exposure to direct sunlight.
Glass can be used effectively as a room divider. Glass transmits natural light, which has an unmatched ability to open spaces up. Being able to see through a divider makes a small room look larger. Glass can be incorporated into doors and walls without sacrificing privacy, largely because you can apply coatings like Glassprimer™ glass paint. Glassprimer™ glass paint can be tinted to match virtually any paint palette. This allows you to incorporate painted glass into any decorating scheme.
Glass can be used effectively to reduce energy consumption when it is used with specialized coatings like Glassprimer™ glass paint. Glassprimer™ glass paint permits the transmission of visible light while rejecting invisible light frequencies that raise interior temperatures and requires additional energy consumption.
