Why Interior Designers Love Switchable Smart Glass

Date: 21 December 2015

Switchable smart glass has rapidly gained popularity in recent years, and has been incorporated into well-known residential and commercial projects.

It’s now a feature interior designers commonly recommend to clients, and for good reason! To help explain its increasing use, we’ve decided to detail some of the reasons why exactly interior designers love using it in their projects.1.Creates an illusion of a bigger space

Designers are constantly asked to make small spaces appear larger, and glass is commonly used to accomplish this. The panels bounce light throughout a room, helping it appear brighter, which is why wall to wall windows are often a common design feature in tighter spaces. However, switchable smart glass takes this one step further.

Not only can it be used for any such windows, but also as a room divider. As it still offers privacy when in its opaque state, it can separate your space as needed. However, when the transparent state is selected, it gives two rooms the appearance of one large space, instantly creating the illusion of a much bigger area.

2. Complements a minimalistic design

Minimalistic design is a very popular trend, and one that doesn’t appear to be fading from the spotlight any time soon. Switchable smart glass helps to create the desired sleek lines of this aesthetic by removing the need for soft furnishings.

After all, since privacy is instantly provided by the push of a button, bulky curtains and blinds are obsolete. As these can detract from the simplistic vision interior designers try to achieve, opaque glass has become a much used alternative for windows and door panels.

3. Offers clients a multitude of benefits

Switchable smart glass is also an attractive feature for designers to suggest to clients as it has a range of advantages beyond offering privacy at the flick of a switch. For one, it increases home hygiene, as the easy to clean panels can be replacements for curtains and blinds which are more likely to collect germs.

The sleek switchable glass is also highly visually appealing and comes in a range of colours to complement your aesthetic, such as blue, bronze, green and grey. Even better, it’s energy efficient and cost-effective, consuming less than 5 Watt per M².
