(RIDGEFIELD, CT)- Most homeowners think that glass is limited to windows, mirrors and tabletops, but Ridgefield Glass knows that’s just the beginning of a crystal clear world! The local custom glass retailer is on the cutting edge of new aesthetic glass design trends found in some of the area’s most prominent homes this season.
“Today, we’re finding that nearly every home accessory can be sculpted in glass,” said John Petchonka, co-owner of Ridgefield Glass. “Glass accents and upgrades command your attention by creating a dramatic look, while offering sleek and sturdy functionality.”
New uses for glass can be found in the bathroom, bedroom, kitchen and even as a partition in any spacious room.
Some of the specific ideas implemented by the designers at Ridgefield Glass include:
- Bathrooms- ultra frameless glass shower doors and panels remove visual clutter to create an inspiring showering environment, while easing maintenance and cleaning, especially when the glass is coated with a Teflon surface protector; painted shower glass walls with any pattern or color complement existing bathroom décor; glass countertops and beveled mirrors create a crisp, clean surface area for all bathroom toiletries and necessities with maximum reflective capacity
- Kitchen- Glass counters and backsplashes are an innovative and functional upgrade that cleans easily in the messiest of rooms
- Bedroom-opalescent glass walk in closets offer an artistic home for the wardrobes of some of the most discerning fashionistas
- Exercise Rooms- the more glass, the more inspiration in today’s home gyms…from flat wall-to-wall mirrors to entire glass walls, seeing oneself in every angle helps keep exercise motivation at its peak!
- Wine Rooms-using a glass door for your wine room adds elegance and an attractive presentation to your finest spirit collection
- Spacious Open Area Rooms-textured glass room partitions help separate an open floor area with fashion and flair- the texture of the glass makes it less translucent than regular glass, but the divider still allows enough light and sound
“Whether you’re building a new house from scratch or trying to create some modern flair to your existing home accessories, glass offers a degree of luxury and drama when you're decorating this year,” adds Petchonka.
