Glass is one of the most remarkable building materials around the world. With the many benefits it brings to a project, the integration of glass into modern home design in Nepal has been on the rise for quite some time now. Walk around the neighborhoods of Budhanilkantha, Bhaisepati, or Sitapaila, and you’ll see that most houses feature glass in their architecture in some or the other way. Glass has been emerging as an indispensable element in Nepal. But why so? In this blog, we delve into the innovative uses of glass in design, from floor-to-ceiling windows to decorative art pieces, and why you should consider adding them to yours. Let’s dive in. Rise of Glass Architecture in Modern Home Design of Nepal Decades ago, in Nepal, only a rare few had an all-glass house; everyone else had wooden shutters, zinc or tin roofs, steel railings, etc. However, things are very different today, and glass is a big part of modern architectural designs. Modern home design in Nepal has come up with some amazing glass home designs, each unique, attractive, and interesting. The wooden wardrobes are replaced by glass wardrobes, steel railings are replaced by glass railings, tiles in the kitchen are replaced by glass splashback, and so on. The all-glass design exudes a very luxurious ambiance and an exceptional lifestyle. Advantages of glass in home construction Given its elegant form and high level of utility, glass has quickly become a preferred choice. When positioned correctly, it allows natural light to enter the room, making the entire space look bright and airy. Likewise, there are numerous other reasons why glass is becoming a popular choice among architects and designers. Let’s know more about it.  1. Good Aesthetic Value Glass houses allow natural light to enter throughout the day, making the interiors cozy and inviting, while from outside, they vary from traditional houses and are often considered works of art in Nepal. So, be it doors, windows, railings, or partitions, the architectural value of glass is high in designing aesthetic yet functional homes. 2. Easy To Maintain Unlike other materials, glass doesn’t stain easily or spot the surface, making it a low-maintenance material. Even if you notice any marks or smudges on the glass surface, you can easily wipe them off with a cloth, and they will look brand new each time.  3. Extremely Versatile Glass is a versatile material that can be customized to meet your needs in a variety of ways. It can be colored to give off a lively vibe, frosted to provide privacy, and worked to any shape for something unique. Glasses like tempered glass and laminated glass even make it possible for your house to be bulletproof, shatterproof, and even self-regulating to light and heat. What else do we need? 4. Resistant To Damage Steels rust, woods get termites, but with glass, you don’t need to worry about such impacts. Glass is resistant to corrosion, rust-proof, and can also endure weather changes. Despite its fragile appearance, glass is actually highly durable and scratch resistant, meaning that it’ll last many years before you replace it. 5. Eco-friendly Unlike other building materials, glass is more environmentally friendly since it doesn’t emit hazardous fumes during manufacture, and practically all glass waste is recycled right away. 6. Durable Another amazing quality of glass is its durability; with proper care and usage, it can last for many years with little to no damage. In fact, for added strength, new homeowners are opting for tinted tempered or laminated safety glass. In contrast to traditional glasses, these kinds of glasses are shatter-proof, meaning they are less likely to break even when hit by a strong force.  As a result, they are safer to use around children or pets. How can glass be used in modern home design of Nepal? As we mentioned earlier, applications of glass are no longer limited to partitions or windows: they can also be used for stair railings, wardrobes, or even entire houses. To meet the needs of diverse projects, it is available in a variety of styles and structural strengths. From decorative accents to functional storage solutions, glass can be used in any way you want. Here is a more detailed breakdown of the glass trends. 1. Stair Railings In Nepal, glass stair railings are a popular alternative for wooden handrails and spindles, and we know why! Glass railing has a stunning visual impact, improves transparency and light flow and even makes the room appear larger. When designed and installed properly, it elevates a home’s worth and elegance while also being extremely secure and functional. 2. Shower Cabinets Consider installing shower cabinets in your bathroom if you feel like it’s time for an upgrade. Shower cabinets offer a spacious showering experience and add a touch of style and modernity to your bathroom while also keeping the area dry and reducing the risk of accidents. Additionally, you can modify it to meet your needs. For instance, you may consider frosting the glass if you want some privacy. Due to its ability to distort or obscure things entirely, it provides privacy without hindering light. Besides, there are different shapes and designs you can choose from depending on the size of your bathroom.    3. Furniture Although glass furniture may appear fragile, it is actually made with toughened or toughened laminated glass, so it’s not comparable to regular glass. Glass furniture looks stunning in modern and contemporary homes and often emanates refinement and elegance, as it has the unique potential to improve the appeal of materials like wood or marble, allowing you to decorate it any way you desire. 4. Partitions Glass Partitions are slowly becoming a trend in Nepal. People have started realising that, unlike other separators, glass partitions can elevate and create minimalist spaces, even in homes and not just offices. These days, integrating the living space and dining area is very common, and glass panels are used to divide those spaces. Depending on your preference, you can choose etched

Benefits/Reasons of Glass Kitchen Interiors

The kitchen is the centre of your house, and as such, it should be your first choice when it comes to improving its design. It’s where you cook, where family and friends gather, and where everyday special moments take place. If you’re more into minimalist designs, glass is an excellent option for kitchen interiors. You can go with traditional glass designs or something more contemporary- the options are limitless. Glass is a highly efficient alternative to plastic and metal and looks excellent in every decor style. But, the versatility and eco-friendly properties of glass aren’t the only reasons you should consider glass as part of your kitchen makeover. Read on to find out why glass is a perfect choice for kitchen interiors. Easy to clean and durable While cooking is quite a fun thing to do, the clean-up that awaits them after is not what we enjoy. So, if you don’t want to spend hours scrubbing, trying to get all that grease off your kitchen walls and counters, we hear you.  Glass is not only low-maintenance, but it can also be quickly cleaned with a high-quality glass cleaner and a clean, wet cloth, preventing the buildup of filth on your backsplash, countertop, or cabinet shutters. In addition, unlike metals and plastics, glass never loses its shine after being cleaned, making it look brand-new every time. Aesthetically Appealing No other material emanates elegance and style like glass does. Incorporating glass in your kitchen’s interior will add a splash of colour to your bland, monotonous interior, making it seem more exquisite and sophisticated. The vibrant shades and designs of the glass and its light effects will also uplift the style of your inner walls.  Because it comes in so many different forms, glass provides a vast range of design options for your kitchen interiors. You may choose lacquered glass for your walls, toughened glass for your countertops, etching designs for your doors or partitions and more. Every glass design will bring equal beauty and a luxurious dash to your kitchen space. Corrosion and bacteria-resistant Unlike other materials, glass is easy to maintain and has a high degree of corrosion and bacteria resistance. In an environment such as a kitchen where hygiene and cleanliness are paramount, you won’t need to worry about a buildup of dirt or bacteria on a glass countertop or splashbacks as it can be easily wiped clean, eliminating any worry about staining or watermarks. Colour Variation If you want to have some fun with your kitchen interior but can’t find too many options to experiment with, consider adding glass to your kitchen interiors. With a glass finish, the possibilities are endless! Whether you want to create a dramatic, striking design or something a bit more subtle, you’ll be loaded with choices when looking for the ideal colour to match your kitchen. This gives you much more flexibility to make your kitchen design bright, vibrant and colourful. Stands High Humidity The likelihood of your kitchen being damp and stuffy when cooking is very high, even with adequate ventilation. The only thing that would happen to glass, regardless of the humidity in your kitchen, is that it would fog up. You only need to use a dry towel to remove the moisture to restore order.  Since glass is not affected by ultraviolet radiation either, cracks, discolouration, or disintegration will not occur. Unlike materials like plasters, which are not durable against UV radiation, the glass will endure for a long time. That’s not all.
