No Skirts Allowed When You Have A Transparent Glass Floor In Your House

There are tons of options to choose from when it comes to flooring. You could have wood floors in which case you’ll also have to decide on the type of wood, the finish and the color, you could have concrete floors which give the place an industrial feel and you could also have tiled floors which can be very fun to work with as you can combine colors and create patterns.

But there’s also another option, less popular but very interesting: glass floors. Despite it looking fragile, glass is actually very strong and there are many different types to choose from. It’s why you have the possibility of installing glass floors in your home. It’s a very interesting idea. If you decide to use transparent glass for the floor on the upper level for example, then your house will look very open and spacious.

Before installing a glass floor you’ll need to build a supporting structure

You’ll be able to see what’s going on downstairs or upstairs by simply looking up or down. You could also have a glass floor on the terrace and visually connect this area with the rest of the house. Another option is to have a hall with glass floor. Of course, you don’t have to have a transparent floor in rooms like the bathroom or the bedroom. Also, it will be a little weird walking on transparent glass if you’re afraid of heights but it could also be a good way to get rid of the fear.
