When you think of decorating with glass inside your home, the kitchen and bath are naturals. Glass is an excellent working surface and can be used to decorate walls and cabinet faces, as well as countertops and dining furniture. Another place in your home décor where glass is right at home is in doors.
Glass interior doors are uncommonly elegant
In many homes, interior doors are made of solid wood, so you may not immediately think of the decorating potential of glass in doorways. Whether the doorway is wood-framed or frameless glass, it will make a statement that a solid wood door simply can’t.
French doors are probably the most common “glass door” installation in residences. French doors are often found in offices and libraries or master bedrooms, but glass is versatile enough to be used in any room – even the bathroom!
You can decorate glass panels with glass paint to create a frosted or etched glass look on any doorway where privacy is desired, or to make a more aesthetic presentation. For example, a glass door on a kitchen pantry, utility room or closet can be backpainted to enhance the décor of the room.
You can also use glass paint to add decorative framing to a glass door, or just a splash of color to the glass panels in a door to give your home a unique touch.
In commercial settings, glass doors can be painted, or enhanced using UV inkjet printing. Using Glassprimer™ glass surface molecular activator as a primer, you can apply inkjet printing, adhesives or urethane coatings to achieve a permanent bond between the glass and your preferred coating. Your printed or applied images will stand up to the wear and tear you can expect in a commercial space.
