Decorative glass floors and stairs

Top 5 ways to use decorative glass

Few design schemes look more dramatic or sleek than a glass floor. Glass floors offer so many advantages – they’re hard-wearing, easy to clean, beautiful to look at and they allow natural light to flow through a building.

But often one of the concerns when installing a clear glass floor is privacy. Installing a frosted glass floor eliminates this concern, while doing nothing to diminish the other benefits.

Another common concern with a glass floor, whether in a commercial or domestic setting, is that it may lack grip and cause slips or falls.

Frosting or sandblasting can create a rougher surface texture, thereby increasing grip underfoot.
