Our homes are a reflection (no pun intended!) of who we are and the lives we lead, and there is no end of options to enhance the way they look with traditional and contemporary style doors and windows.
For a country cottage, Georgian bars can add a heritage touch, even with the use of modern materials, which keep draughts out and are virtually maintenance-free. A growing number of properties, particularly along the Norfolk coast, are built with a more contemporary look, and full-length glass and minimal frames are back in fashion again. But it’s often inside rather than outside that our customers get creative with glass.
Readers who are old enough to remember the original Through The Keyhole series (I watched as a child) will remember Lloyd Grossman’s tours of the homes of the rich and famous, and we’re often surprised at the creativity of customers in decorating their homes. From a unique kitchen glass splash back to a bespoke staircase, there are endless ways that we can use glass to realise a customer’s design ideas and we love the challenge of creating and installing these.
We are often asked to work on period and Listed properties, such as churches and public buildings, and these present other challenges in respecting and keeping the architectural heritage of the building intact. Using the same glass craftsmanship that our father did when he started the business 50 years ago, we are able to ensure that glass repairs and maintenance are carried out sympathetically.
Of course whether we are installing double glazing or creating a glass addition as part of an interior design scheme, we apply the same precision and flair which we are known for. After all, the quality of our work reflects on our skill as glaziers.
