When most homeowners think about residential glass, they think about windows or sliding glass doors. You might not think about glass being used for any part of your home except in windows and doors. However, thanks to newer contemporary glass materials available today, you can incorporate glass into several parts of your home's basic structure for adding a unique and unusual appeal to your decor. Check out some of these unusual glass applications for your home's decor and learn how your home can stand out from all the rest.
If you're redoing the floor in any part of your home and live in a climate with a chilly winter, you might be thinking about having radiant floor heat installed. This system, which involves specialized heating wires beneath the tiles, will warm the tiles and keep your feet cozy and warm. While there's an up-front expense to radiant floor heat, don't let this cost allow you to talk yourself out of the upgrade -- when your feet are toasty and warm, your entire body can often feel warmer.
