You can install glass in any room of your home, such as a kitchen, bathroom, or even master bedroom.

If you have children and a busy household, consider purchasing the thickest, highest-quality glass that you can to avoid breakage.
Following are some unique, eye-catching ways that you can use residential glass to enhance your home.
One beautiful, dramatic way to infuse a room with more natural light is by installing skylights in the ceiling. You can have the skylight professionally added to your living room, a bedroom, kitchen, or any other room to add a burst of sunlight.
Installing skylights in a bathroom will give the space a fresh, spa-inspired look and feel, and will also provide the ideal light for applying make-up and other grooming activities. Another benefit of skylights is that they can help cut down on electric bill costs as you'll use less electric light.
2. Decorative Glass
When installed in just the right places, glass can lend a decorative touch. For instance, you can install glass cabinet inserts, which will allow you to easily see the contests inside, as well as show off any collections, such as antique plates.
As another option, make your glass shower enclosure the centerpiece of the bathroom by purchasing one with etched or engraved details. Some design ideas include flowers, tropical fish, or geometric patterns, depending on the space's decor theme. Other ways you can creatively incorporate glass into your bathroom is via countertops, backsplashes, mirrors, and shelves.
If basic wood tables are too traditional and bulky looking for your tastes, pick one featuring a glass tabletop instead. You can buy a glass-topped table pre-made, or revamp your current kitchen, dining room, or coffee table by replacing the wood with glass.
For a customized look, choose frosted or tinted glass rather than the classic clear type. Glass that resembles stone or marble is another option.
