Keeping Your Garden Alive And Well

After I started focusing on planting a garden, I realized that there were some real problems with the plants that I had chosen. In addition to not doing very well in the plot of land that I had available for farming, I also realized that the area wasn't very attractive, which is why I started focusing on making some improvements. It was really incredible to see the difference that a few changes made. This website is all about keeping your garden alive and well, and knowing which plants can help or hurt your outdoors space.

3 Different Ways To Use Glass In Your Home

Soham Diaz

If you want your home to have an open and airy feeling, you should examine how much glass you are using in your home. Glass can be used in a variety of ways to enhance the look and appearance of your home.

Way #1: Big Glass Windows

When people think about windows, they often think about the small windows that you slide open and closed that are used in bedrooms. Only putting in small windows can really limit your options.

Instead, you should consider adding some big windows to your home if you want your home to feel more open and airy. You can add big picture windows that don't open but allow you a great view. You can replace a solid wall in your living room, for example, with a big picture window that allows you to see outside. You can even put some small windows on the bottom or top of the picture window that do open for additional ventilation.

There are also some big window styles that you can slide or crank open as well. If your home feels a little dark and boxed in, consider changing from wall real estate for some big window real estate.

Way #2: Glass Doors

Another way to incorporate more glass into your home is with glass doors. For example, you could add a sliding glass door out onto your patio. Making your patio door out of glass will help make your patio feel like more of a natural extension of your home and will provide you with a better view of your backyard.

You can also use glass doors inside your home. For example, you could use glass doors on the entrance to your family room. The glass doors will promote a feeling of openness while also allowing you to close the doors when you are watching a loud movie and don't want to wake up the rest of the home.

You could use frosted glass doors for your kitchen pantry or utility room. Glass doors, unlike wood doors, allow light to more easily flow throughout your home.

Way #3: Aesthetic Glass

Not all the glass in your home has to serve a functional purpose such as a window or door. You can use glass for more aesthetic pursuits as well. For example, you could use paneled glass for the wall going into your office instead of a drywall-style wall.

Or you can add frosted glass to your bathroom in order to create privacy while offering light as well. Or you could add glass railings if you have stairs, which provide the same protection as regular railings while opening the view of your home.
