Glass partitions are increasingly popular rising in kitchen design. They are glass frames that create borders in the kitchen, and many modern homes are implementing them. If you are one of the many people that are currently intrigued by the idea of a glass partition in your kitchen, there are some things you should consider. Let’s look at some of the pros and cons.
The reason glass partitions have become so trendy is that they look great. They offer a clean border to any room, delineating the space in a way that isn’t intrusive but is appealing. If you live in an open concept home, having a way to separate one room from another without doors or walls breaking up the space is exciting.
Glass partitions work well in a variety of different kinds of homes. If you live in a modern home, the glass can be framed in a dark or light steel. If your home has a more rustic farmhouse style, they still fit in nicely. The frame and individual panes can be designed and customized to fit any space. They can be completely clear for full visibility throughout the home, or opaque. They are an inexpensive way to transform an existing kitchen or family room.
Glass partitions may not suit every lifestyle. For homes with young kids, it adds a large, potentially breakable object into the fold, which can pose some problems. However, since these are customizable, many people ask us to put the partition above a countertop, meaning they aren’t accessible from the ground, which mitigates the risk of children unintentionally breaking them.
Another con is that some people may not like the look. But they are visually appealing to most. We would also work with you to look at everyday traffic in your home – are they going to impede movement?
