Glass extensions to commercial and residential properties are
becoming increasingly popular as homeowners embrace modern technology such as smart glass, self clean glass and glass that keeps the harmful aspects of the sun out whilst allowing some heat in. In fact there are numerous types of glass available to create a perfect glass extension to any home.
Architects and designers are now using glass more than ever before on residential projects simply because it works, it looks great and many of us want it in our homes.
The beauty of glass is that it is highly malleable and can be used in a variety of different situations to create stunning improvements and extensions to all types of property. Just look at the photo above for instance. Who would have thought that a glass extension would look so good on a period property?A statement glass extension on a beautiful period property.

Glass can also be used with great success on more modest homes to create unique extensions that whilst in contrast with their surrounding look absolutely fabulous.This is a glass in-fill extension that work perfectly. Note the spacing on the glazed roof panels matches the door openings...
The double glazing companies have also been quick to catch on and we are now seeing narrow framed double glazed folding door and panels in common use in extensions across the UK.
Another development I like is the use of floor to ceiling glass panels installed side by side to create walls of glass.
Glass extensions are not for everyone but for those that love the look they biggest consideration will be the glass itself. Depending on the exposure of the site and whether it is south facing or not you will need to talk it over carefully with your architect because if you get it wrong then a glass extension will be one of the worst home improvement mistakes that you can make.A stunning glass extension with minimal use of non glass materials. Even the roof supports are made of glass...
In terms of cost, don’t be put of. The cost of the glass will be high but the installation is far quicker than a conventional build and the savings there should more than make up for the additional cost of the glass.
I’m of the opinion that if you like the look then go for it as glass extensions are becoming increasingly popular in the UK. They will also make a great conversation topic, give you many years of enjoyment whilst adding substantial value to your property.
