What Could The Future Of Glass Look Like?

When it comes to glass, the future is closer than you think.  There are more and more advances in materials and technologies being used with glass.  Just think about the touch screen smart phones that 9 out of 10 people seem to be carrying these days.  The screen is made of glass, and the glass plays a major role in the operation of the phones. Corning Incorporated, a leader in specialty glass products and ceramics,  has a vision of what role glass will play in our lives in the future.   This video by Corning shows example of how glass may be used in our homes and offices very soon.

Future of Glass

At Alamo Glass, we hope to be a part of these exciting glass concepts in the future.  For now, we will continue to do what we do best, provide high quality frameless shower door installations, custom mirror installations and custom cut glass products in Dallas and Ft Worth.  Please contact us if you are in need of glass.

Frameless Shower Door Benefits for Homeowners

Why Choose Frameless Shower Doors

Help keep your shower doors bacteria and germ free. The frame is a deposit area for dirt, dust, and a breeding ground for germs. In a frameless shower door, there is no metal area to collect the particles, and your bathroom can be cleaner and free from worrisome bacteria.

The glass area on frameless shower doors is much easier to keep clean with no areas present to collect any sediment. Continue reading Frameless Shower Door Benefits for Homeowners

Custom Cut Glass Table Tops for Your Home

Glass Table Tops Dallas TXWhen you’re looking for a creative way to amplify the impact of your dining room table, transitioning to a glass table top is a sophisticated solution.

Glass tabletops serve as the focal point of the space, complement the decor and amplify the light in the room when utilized correctly.

Seating Showcase & Complement Theme

Using a glass tabletop allows you to show off the beautiful upholstery or intricate wooden scroll-work of your dining room chairs. The ability to see through the tabletop brings the seating out of the shadows of an opaque tabletop and adds depth to any setting.

In a modern room with a lot of clean lines and streamlined furnishings, a glass tabletop complements the theme with sophisticated simplicity. The transparent nature of the tabletop allows the other elements in the room to shine. Continue reading Custom Cut Glass Table Tops for Your Home

Did you know Mirrors instantly open up a room?

Working for a glass and mirror company for so many years that serves areas like Highland Park, University Park, and Southlake, I have been in contact with some excellent designers. One key thing they always mention is mirrors. Mirrors, whether framed or flat, can open and visually enhance your space.

In my own bedroom, I decided to take down a framed picture I had on the wall, to create a new look and also bring in more light. I took apart the frame, removed the picture and painted the frame shiney black to give the frame a new look. Once it was dry, I had our shop fabricate a mirror and install the mirror in my newly painted frame. Once I got the beautiful new frame on the wall, my room instantly felt and looked bigger.

Privacy Glass for Bathrooms

Privacy glass is ideal for a making a high-traffic bathroom more functional. While clear glass is favored for master bath shower enclosures, frosted glass is preferable for a guest bath or restroom shared by siblings.

What is frosted glass?

Acid is applied to glass to etch its surface and leave it “frosty.” This frosted glass offers more privacy than alternatives such as patterned or tinted glazing. Moreover, this glass features a timeless and classic look that can coordinate with many types of décor. So whether the bathroom in question is modern, transitional, or traditional, a frosted glass shower door will be able to fit in harmoniously while adding clean lines and subtle elegance.
