Free-Standing Tub Inside the Shower Enclosure

This is a fresh and elegant twist on the simple tub-shower combos that many of us are familiar with. With this design, the bathing options are united within the glass enclosure, but you still have two distinct choices – a shower or a soak in the tub. Be sure to choose clear glass for the shower so that this space will unite the beauty of glass with a view of your freestanding tub as well as the shower tile.

Coastal Theme Trying to improve your home décor without replacing all your furniture? Check out our creative and easy ideas for a coastal theme that will make your living space more stylish and appealing through some fun and easy changes. Ocean-inspired décor is trendy, and it’s not difficult to freshen up your dining room with nautical flair, especially when you dress it up with glass at the same time.

Here are some small changes that can give your dining room a whole new look and feel.

•  Add a clear glass tabletop to dress up the surface of your dining table. Adorn it with woven straw placements and create a centerpiece with two tapers in fancy brass
candle sticks and a white ceramic bowl filled with seasonal fruit. If you want to go all out, include white cloth napkins in starfish rings.

•  Turn a bare wall into the room’s focal point with a few small additions. Have a glass shelf hung using ornate metal brackets, and then add a framed mirror above it and fill the shelf with seaside curios. Possibilities include shells collected on family trips to a beach house, a model ship from your local flea market, vintage glass bottles, nautical knick knacks from a department store, dollar store, or thrift store.

•  Purchase a sideboard and use the interior as handy storage space for anything from dishes to art supplies! Fill the top with beach themed serving ware. You can find everything from platters shaped like fish to bowls in the form of clamshells to dishes with sail boats painted on them. An eclectic assortment like this is reminiscent of a beach house and the relaxation it inspires.

Dining Room GlassHas your dining room seen better days? Do you wish to improve its dated look or worn out feel? Glass may not be the first substance that comes to mind when you think of dining room remodeling, but it can certainly play a powerful role. Let’s take a look at some of the possibilities.

If you’re looking for an even more dramatic change, consider replacing your current dining table with one with just a glass top. A tempered glass table top can be used alone on an appropriate pedestal or other support system. A dining table with a transparent glass top does not appear to fill the space like a table fashioned from an opaque substance. Utilizing a table like this gives the room a more open atmosphere and spacious ambience. It also brings modern charm to the space.
