There are some aspects of leased apartments, condos and homes that renters will always want: modern appliances, storage space, safe access Other desires are simply trends that may come and go – especially with the emergence of viral photos and videos that inspire other renters and homeowners. Thankfully, the use of glass will always be popular, and is used as a material for design now more than ever.
Here are five of the most popular emerging apartment trends that use glass, and will add value to your rental property:
- Indoor-outdoor rooms. Bringing the outdoors inside is a trend that has become more and more popular over the past few years. More people want a connection to nature, and windows and doors are the easiest way to do so without stepping outside. According to Apartment Therapy, “Whether by way of bifold doors, stacking doors, or hinge doors, people are using large glass doors that span floor to ceiling to create the illusion of the living room being one with their backyard or deck.
- Lots of light. With more people sheltering and working from home, it’s no surprise that they are looking for spaces with lots of natural light, especially as we enter the winter months. Natural sunlight can boost your mood, and is a must-have for millennial plant-lovers or those who need great lighting for all of those video conference calls. Adding a large picture window or a skylight can make all the difference.
- Modern bathroom upgrades. Spa-like bathrooms aren’t just for homeowners anymore, and with more affordable luxury apartments popping up in urban areas, upgrading your bathroom fixtures will make you a top choice. Opt for a glass shower enclosure over a shower-tub combo, and provide large, well-lit mirrors.
