A room divider is a screen or piece of furniture placed in a way that divides a room into separate
areas, creating more efficient use of the space within the room. Room dividers are a creative way
to add functionality and style to interior design. They can be made of various materials and can be both static and portable. They also may be completely obscuring, or fully transparent or to offer only partial sight.
Do you want to open your home’s design but also maintain some privacy? Glass is an excellent material when it comes to room dividers. Here are the benefits of glass as a room divider:
– Maintains an open floor plan where rooms can flow together.
– Offers great visual appeal combined with functionality.
– Doesn’t block natural light.
– Creates the illusion of space.
– Can be a spectacular decorative element.
– Comes in different colors and textures.
– Can be used in closets, private offices, bedrooms and bathrooms.

Is your bathroom feeling cramped? When space is tight, you don’t need to bring out the sledgehammer. With the right design and use of glass, you can create the illusion of a roomy bathroom, even if it stays the same size. Even the smallest piece of furniture or accessory can make your room seem to shrink. Glass keeps the space looking open and free, which is why glass shower enclosures, mirrors and floating shelves are ideal for a small bathroom.
Glass shower enclosures give the illusion of space in a small bathroom by allowing you to see from one end of the room to the other. These enclosures open the view and allow sunlight in. Being able to see the interior shower walls from anywhere in the room creates the illusion of a large space.
Make the room feel bigger with mirrors. Go big and bold by creating a wall of glass to double the size of your room! Mirrors reflect images and light, creating the optical illusion of more space by correcting placement. For the best use of mirrors in your bathroom, hang your mirrors so that they face or angle toward your natural light source to fully capture light and spread it throughout the room.
Floating shelves provide storage space while making a room appear larger by allowing you to see all the way to the wall. Not only do they allow for more storage, but these pieces can also make the room feel light and airy.

A staircase is an important part of your home, but can often be an afterthought. Your staircase can be the focal point of your home and you can take the design in many different directions, but incorporating glass can bring a spacious, airy and modern look to your home. When most people think of a glass staircase, they become concerned with the durability and safety. With the right design and a professional installation, glass railings and staircases could be a great option for your home.
Whether you include glass in the railing, steps or both, the creative design is endless.
The transparency of a glass staircase can help to open up the layout of your home, create more visual space and brighten your interior design. Glass blends functionality with design to create a durable and attractive feature in your home. Incorporating glass with other materials in your staircase can create a nice visual balance.
Glass staircases are becoming more and more common nowadays. For both the traditional and modern designer, glass staircases create seamless, flowing elevation. Glass railings and balconies are the perfect design choice when you don’t want to compromise a beautiful view.

When one of our favorite clients, Mr.Darren Easton came to us to install a set of glass doors for his home gym, we were excited to help!
Unfortunately, Mr. Easton did not bring us an easy project. When we went to measure the job we realized that the existing door jam was going to present a problem. The door stop in the opening was placed in such a way that we couldn’t attach the hinges needed to hold the weight of the doors. But we were determined to find a solution, and more importantly, a solution that didn’t involve Mr.Easton having to rip out the door frame. So with a little extra work and some special hinges, voila!
Here’s what Mr. Easton had to say about his new doors:
“I think of the fabulous folks at River Glass Designs every time I work out. My gym, the equipment and the overall environment is important to me and my motivation to stay healthy. These fantastic doors were the icing on the cake — to take this gym to the next level. I sometimes forget I’m actually working out at HOME — I feel like I should be paying a membership fee. LOL. I’m so glad to have had the help of the River Glass team that didn’t just give up when I had such a difficult opening to work with.”

With its translucent beauty, glass countertops can be an eye-catching and elegant addition to any room in your home. According to the Wall Street Journal, glass countertops are gaining popularity among designers and homeowners as a unique option, especially in kitchens and bathrooms. These surfaces combine form with functionality and offer a range of design possibilities.
Glass may not be the first material you think of when you decide to upgrade your countertops, but it’s one that has a lot to offer, and here’s why:
Clean, sanitary surface. Glass countertops are a low-maintenance option that offers quick and easy cleanup. Germs and bacteria aren’t able to survive because of the non-porous surface. Unlike many other materials, any chemical or cleaner can be used.
Non-porous surface. High heat tolerance eliminates the potential for your countertops to get scorched, burned or melt. In addition, stains are resistant.
Custom product. Unique choices can be made from the variety of color and shape options. With it’s versatility, homeowners and designers can create a one-of-a-kind, contemporary look.
