Modern style trend:
Updated: Dec 3, 2020
As we have made our way through the last decade, we have seen more and more architects specifying floor to ceiling glazing. As with the ever-popular anthracite grey windows, floor to ceiling glazing has become all the rage, so we have decided to discuss this trend with a few of our latest projects as an example.
Floor to ceiling, or full height glazing says it all in the name. It is a glazing method typically using aluminium frames, due to their thinner sight lines and rigidity, where the glass spans from floor to ceiling and due to this, it has become very high on the homes designers lists.
The benefits of floor to ceiling glazing are twofold. Firstly, it allows for stunning, uninterrupted views of the surroundings of a property, and secondly thermal efficiency, as the sunlight’s power and warmth can be harnessed to add additional warmth to the home, and in a colder climate like the UK, this could be very advantageous to one’s wallet.
As you can see, full height glazing can really add a modern, clean and airy touch to your home, and is defiantly a beautiful aspect in design when used correctly.
For the first floor or higher ventilation becomes a problem with full height glazing due to having a floor to ceiling opening, however this is simple to over come with a Juliet balcony. Due to the trend in full height glazing, we have also seen an uptake in the demand for Juliet balconies, and this is easy to see why, as they add a tough of elegance and class with their beautifully finished metal and glass work, allowing a flow of light and space
