Walkable glass: practical tips and modern, inspiring ideas
The widespread use of glass is one of the great trends in modern architecture. On the one hand, this can be explained by the striving for uniformity in the interior. In addition, the mirror effects and transparency create the feeling of more breadth in the ambience. Glass is also considered an environmentally friendly material. After all, it is very effective and has a modern feel. Given all of these facts, today’s topic is very topical. Walkable glass is a real eye-catcher in the interior and has many practical advantages. However, the optimal use requires certain prior knowledge.

Walkable glass and security
The walk-on glass is a fairly safe material despite the conflicting expectations of many people. In terms of strength, it can be compared to concrete. Of course, this only applies to products of the highest quality and the installer should also be experienced and competent enough to select the strength that suits you. Contact companies and specialists with many years of experience and many references. You can use these to comment on your own design ideas and critically review the possibilities for their practical implementation together.

Intelligent solutions for more light
Above all, walk-on glass is an innovation that creates a brighter ambience. If you are planning a reconstruction that should bring you more sense of openness and comfort, then replacing a traditional floor with walk-on glass would be a very good idea. It is mostly used for this purpose between two different floors. By replacing the wooden floor with a glass one at this point, the light spreads more evenly in the interior. The effect is even better if you combine this solution with wide windows.

Walk-in glass in apartments on two levels with an attic
Two-level apartments with an attic are now a very common type of apartment. One of the main problems with this is the lack of light on the lower level. At the same time, the upper floor feels pretty tight. Both disadvantages could be resolved as soon as one visually connects the two levels with one another through walk-in glass. On the lower floor you immediately have more light and comfort. In the attic, the glass floor immediately gives you the feeling of more space.
Walkable glass is often preferred for hallways
Walkable glass for a more intensive experience of nature
Living in places with a beautiful view is becoming more and more accessible for many people. Even residential buildings with smaller apartments are positioned and designed in such a way that the residents can afford this luxury. The wide use of glass on facades contributes to a more intensive experience of nature. Often, glass floors are also integrated into such buildings, which allow us to enjoy nature from even more angles in the interior. The same applies to apartments and houses with other types of beautiful panoramic views, for example of a city.

Use in traditional design
Walkable glass can be part of a traditional interior design concept. It inscribes itself well in practically all creative styles. Just like the furniture, fragments in this material can create striking accents on the floor. There are many different design options available to you. Two solutions are particularly widespread: on the one hand, it provides a transparent view of another floor. If you don’t want that or if you have a single-storey apartment, you can decorate the floor of the walk-on glass panels in different ways and thus visually expand the interior ambience wonderfully.
Staircases are particularly effective with a glass floor
Different textures and colors, conversion options
With today’s demand for solutions with walk-on glass, of course, several diverse solutions are also emerging. The innovations in production already brought different textures and colors with them. Designers take care of many creative conversions. Typical and very modern are the geometric shapes of the accessible glass panels, as well as the colorful floor design of these. Last but not least, we would like to draw your attention to the possibility of temporarily covering parts of the accessible floor with carpets or other textiles for certain periods or occasions. This could be necessary, for example, if you want to temporarily darken the room or if you have guests at home who feel insecure when walking on the glass floor.
