Open up your kitchen with glass doors and ceilings ★★★★★
Adding glass doors and ceilings to your kitchen can really open it up by letting in natural light.
Good Homes magazine points out that thanks to new insulating glass, it is now possible to use the material extensively without losing heat from the property.
Indeed, insulating glass creates an environment that's cool in the summer and warm in the winter, so homes will be comfortable as well as stylish.
"There are several ways to bring more light into a kitchen, from adding a conservatory to replacing solid doors with glass ones," the publication states.
"Swapping an exterior wall for floor-to-ceiling glass doors is another option," it adds.
Homeowners worried that glass installed in hard to reach areas, such as ceilings, will become dirty too quickly can opt for self-cleaning glass.
Good Homes reminded those installing glass to invest in blinds and awnings for those really sunny days.
This will ensure that kitchen furniture does not bleach in direct sunlight.
