Glass is one of the most versatile architectural materials in the world. Not only is it incredibly beautiful, but it’s also strong, durable and versatile. Architectural pattern glass can be used to enhance the look of any interior. Keep reading to learn more about custom glass and five creative ways you can use it in your home.

What is Architectural Pattern Glass? Architectural pattern glass is a special type of glass designed to allow light into your space, while still providing privacy. Pattern glass is made by pressing or rolling a pre-set design into glass while it’s still hot and malleable. Pattern glass may also feature different colours or shading. The opacity of the glass depends on how much privacy you would like to have, and how much light you’d like to let in. Ways to Use Architectural Glass in Your Home When it comes to pattern glass, and our access to a network of decorative glass suppliers, the possibilities are practically endless. Here are just five examples of how we can use architectural pattern glass to enhance the look of your space: 1. Showers Update the look and feel of your bathroom with a sleek and modern shower enclosure. Pair with glass tiles for a cool contemporary look, or partner with traditional tiles to showcase style. 2. Kitchen cupboards Add some light to your kitchen with elegant cupboards made from pattern glass. Choose clear glass cupboard doors and an interior light to showcase your finest stemware or an opaque etched glass to hide your cupboard’s contents in a sleek and modern way. 3. Kitchen backsplash Tile backsplash is the norm in most kitchens, but tile grout is hard to keep clean. Choose glass for a stunning kitchen backsplash that won’t trap bacteria and wipes clean in an instant. 4. Staircases Wood is a welcome part of many modern interior designs, but it can make your home look dated. Replace your wood staircase and bannister for a sleek glass enclosure that will instantly make your home look more modern. 5. Room dividers If you have a large room that you’d like to partition, glass is a great option for a room divider. Not only does glass let you easily divide your space, but because it allows light to pass through, it can make your divided room feel airy.
