Glass balcony railings not only make the balcony seem larger and more open, but can also add beauty to the facade of your home. Since glass has a reflective quality similar to mirrors, it can add a decorative element to the facade. We highly recommend getting a professional to help you out with this. 

6. Opaque glass kitchen cabinets

Opaque glass kitchen cabinets are ideal as you can't really see all the things stored in the cabinet and it gives the kitchen a light and sophisticated look. You can also consult with local interior designers if you need more advice. 

7. Glass walls

Anyone who needs to create divisions of spaces at home, ends up wondering what are the best ways to do this without losing important square meters. And a good example of this kind of solution is undoubtedly in this image. Here, the opaque glass allows an intelligent division, where the lightness of the material and the passage of natural light allows the place to always be pleasant. The result is modern and very inspiring.

8. Glass partition door with details

We could not leave out the traditional doors of blasted glass. These beautiful doors have the most variety of designs and can be made entirely in glass or have boards in the middle of the structure, composing creative and elegant solutions that can look great in bedrooms, bathrooms, kitchens and anywhere else creativity allows. 

9. Glass bead curtains

Glass bead curtains can be hung anywhere to create a beautiful glow in any room. For best effects, make sure to hang the glass bead curtains in a place where there is light because this makes it really pretty. 

10. Coloured glass

Colored glass bottles or jars, which are usually stored in a corner of the cupboard, may have a utility that goes beyond the obvious use. You can also decorate the kitchen with them. In this design, the different types and sizes of bowls were great to bring a touch of elegance and personality to the decor.

Someone who believes that the toilet stall is only used to protect the shower spatter is foolhardy. This piece can actually add value to the decor of the space, even without undergoing modifications, such as sand jets and other commonly used methods. The tip is to choose good coatings for the inner wall of the bath area. A simple solution that certainly made all the difference.
