With glass and privacy as bedfellows being a hot topic at the moment after the announcement of a new form of technology, the ways in which glass can improve our lives and simultaneously reduce privacy are very much in the spotlight. However, whilst computers that are made from glass and worn on the body may be a very extreme case, almost any glass will throw up certain privacy issues.
In homes or offices, trying to get the right level of light in without leaving individuals feeling completely on view can be tricky, and in the home it can be even harder to get the privacy one wants without utilising bulky curtains or shutters. Not only will these products take up a great deal of room in the home and reduce the chances or a room looking extremely modern, but those who wish to have as much glass in the home as possible to make their home appear even more contemporary may well find that putting up shutters or curtains over so much space is simply extremely costly, unattractive and impractical.
As such, a balance needs to be struck, or yet again, technology must be turned to in a bid to remedy this uncomfortable mix of glass and patency.
From privacy glass to decorative glass windows, there will be many ways to increase privacy whilst ensuring that there is plenty of natural light entering the building. Whilst decorative glass may not seem the most suitable options for those wishing to maximise privacy, it can easily be altered through the use of clever lighting, and can even simply be tinted to improve the amount of privacy one can have and at the same time improve the looks of a building.
So, whether you want privacy glass to turn entire panes opaque, or decorative windows to make it far less obvious as to what you are doing within a property, there are plenty of ways to comfortably merge glass and privacy together.
