10 Ways To Enhance Your Patio With Custom Glass

Did you know you can get more out of your patio with glass enhancements? If you are considering updating your patio and you want to be the envy of all of your neighbors, this list of stunning custom glass upgrades will give you inspiration to take the plunge into having the outdoor look you’ve always dreamed of. You’ll never think of your patio the same way again.

1.  Glass Gazebo

A beautiful custom glass gazebo can become the focal point of your patio and yard with its unique and elegant look. Additionally, this backyard retreat will keep you well protected on a rainy day or allow you to take advantage of the warming rays of the sun on a cooler afternoon while blocking the chilly wind.

2. Pergolas

PergolasWhile pergolas do not include walls and are known to be open and airy, adding glass to the top of a pergola can be the perfect way to enhance your patio. The glass roof offers a protective cover while not blocking the sun or your view of the sky above.

3.  Folding Glass Patio Walls

A folding glass patio wall will have a considerable impact on your patio. When closed, a glass wall is a statement piece offering forever views. The ability to open that wall expands your living space and brings the outdoors in while allowing a great area for entertaining.

4.  Decking Panels or Railings

Any panels or railings made completely of wood are wonderful but will obstruct your view of a yard you are proud to show off. Replacing them with custom glass panels will allow the same protection while enhancing the look of your outdoor space. Panels made of heavy glass are thick and sturdy enough to handle the demands of the great outdoors.

5.  Glass Pool Fencing

6.  All-Season Room

Get more use out of your patio year round by enclosing it in glass. Imagine watching a snowstorm cuddled up on the couch reading a book or watching a movie. It’s a great way to connect the indoors to the great outdoors.

7.  Glass Tables

Glass adds beauty and sparkle. Simply updating a current patio tabletop with a custom cut glass top is an easy way to update your patio area.

8.  Exercise Room

If you’ve always wanted an exercise room, enclose your patio and transform it into one. The sunny area with a great view of the outdoors will keep you motivated.

9.  Glass Fire Pit Wind Guard

10.  Patio Mirrors

Mirrors are easily incorporated into any patio design. Custom sizing and shapes will add beauty to any space. Mirrors will reflect back the colors of your yard and even make a small space feel larger.
