If you are looking for a unique way to add dimension to your interior design, consider using glass walls as dividing structures in your home.
Often overlooked as a material for walls, doors and dividers, glass can provide separation to a space without making the room seem dark or small. Open up your home and add interesting elements to your design with the addition of glass walls and structures.
While you will find many bathrooms with glass doors or enclosures, this versatile material can be used in almost any room of your home. There is a quiet elegance to glass that adds a modern appeal while offering several benefits, including:
Opening Up a Space.
Smaller homes that are compartmentalized can be opened up with interior glass walls. Make the rooms look larger and more spacious while still creating individual areas with a glass partition.
Let In the Light.
Solid walls block the natural light from flowing through your home. Glass walls can allow natural light to permeate interior rooms that have less sun exposure, creating a bright home.
Open plan home designs are popular, yet can make it difficult to separate different spaces. Using partial glass walls can create a transitional barrier between your living room, dining area or kitchen without taking away from the open floor plan design.
Glass walls are perfect for creating a separation while still allowing you to showcase your collections to your guests. Use a glass wall for your wine room, art gallery or library, allowing everyone to see your collection without hands-on access to your valuables.
A Clear View.
Clear walls give you a little privacy to work from home while still keeping an eye on your kids or pets. Office interior walls made of glass can give you a sound barrier while allowing you to see into your other living areas.
Glass walls allow you to save on energy costs without sealing off one room from the next. Not only do they let in more natural light during the day, they can help with climate control. Glass can insulate areas, allowing you to only heat or cool the areas you are using while maintaining visibility into adjacent rooms.
Glass gives you the opportunity to create barriers without the oppression of solid walls. Using frosted or patterned glass can allow light in while still creating privacy, giving you the best of both worlds.
Types of Glass Wall Structures
From clear, almost invisible glass walls to tinted and back painted glass that comes in different colors, there are many options when it comes to interior glass wall structures. The type you use will depend on the style you are trying to achieve, along with the function you desire. Some of the glass wall options include:
Butted Glass Walls.
Create a seamless design with frameless glass that is perfectly clear to allow in the maximum amount of light without any obstructions. These are wonderful for separating a space without any detraction from other design elements.
Moveable, Sliding Glass Walls.
Often used in commercial settings, sliding glass walls can also be wonderful in a residential home. Partition off your office or sun room with sliding glass walls that can be moved aside when needed for access.
Glass walls do not need to be perfectly clear. Personalize glass walls or doors with etched designs or frosted glass to match your style.
The timeless style of glass blocks is making a comeback. These versatile blocks can offer the beauty and light of glass while still obstructing the view. Perfect for areas that need a little privacy, such as bedrooms, bathrooms or studies.
Allow in light while still having some degree of privacy with glass panels added into an existing wall structure. This gives you the best of both worlds, with solid and clear aspects to your interior walls.
Glass is extremely versatile and can blend in with almost any interior design. Whether your home has a modern style or a more traditional look, glass has unlimited potential to be used for a wide variety of functions throughout your home.

“CG&S has worked with Anchor-Ventana for over 15 years. They have provided excellent customer service from sales, to fabrication, to installation. What we love best about them is they have a strong group of people who listen well and really care about our projects. We recently worked with them on a curved shower enclosure. The project came out beautiful!”

What a great experience…
Anchor-Ventana – Wow! What a great experience. We recently had seamless shower enclosures installed in our home. The professionalism and customer service we received was second to none. The experience was outstanding. As a customer we were updated on the order on a regular basis. Loved it, and would highly recommend AV.

Helped Raise Money for Charity
“Anchor-Ventana Glass just helped us complete a Southern Living Showcase House in Lago Vista. This project is directed at charity, and one of them (Operation Finally Home) provides mortgage-free housing for our wounded troops. Thanks to Anchor-Ventana, we were able to raise a significant amount for charity. Anchor-Ventana has been wonderful to work with. I have used them in the past on remodeling projects and will continue to in the future. They offer timely, efficient service, backed by great customer awareness. I have found them to be quick to correct any issues that have arisen with a great smile on their faces. I highly recommend them for any glass project you are considering.”

Finally… I found a company that’s willing to work with me instead of one that only wants to sell their products. Everyone I’ve had the opportunity to work with there has been terrific. I remodeled my bathroom; they helped me pick the perfect shower. NOW I HAVE MY OWN SPA BATH. Thank you for all your help!!

I Really Appreciate the Work…
I really appreciate Daniel and the work he does when he comes to my home for installations. I appreciate how conscientious and kind he is.
Your guys are amazing…
Your guys are amazing – super polite, friendly, explanatory, and professional.
Anchor-Ventana did a terrific job replacing an older shower door with a frameless one and creating three lovely beveled mirrors for my master bathroom. I received estimates from other companies, and AV was more reasonable and much more professional. It’s worth a trip to Round Rock to see their extensive showroom. Our salesperson there, Christy, was very helpful and kept track of the job throughout the process. I couldn’t be happier with the finished product. I intend to call AV for window glass replacement, too. A contractor had told me that glass replacement for my windows and patio doors was not possible–and that I’d have to put in new windows and new doors now that the seals were broken on the double glass panes. AV said it was not a problem to replace the glass. I look forward to that work. I can strongly recommend Anchor-Ventana in Round Rock.

Providing great customer service is how we build our business, and having trade contractors like Anchor-Ventana allows us to be able to follow our business model.

Katz Builders, Inc., Austin, TX
“Pillar Custom Homes builds high-end green custom homes, and we have been using Anchor-Ventana for our mirrors and glass needs for well over a decade. They are a top-notch outfit and do reliable and conscientious work. I have had the same salesperson during this entire period, and she has done a remarkable job. Not only is their product quality superior, but the pricing is competitive. I hope you decide to use Anchor-Ventana so you will have results similar to what we have experienced over the years.”

I Just Love This Company!
“I want to thank Anchor-Ventana Glass for everything you’ve done. I am so pleased with Dustin and James and their workmanship. They were such a pleasure to be around. I just love this company and working with Carole. I am just so grateful for everything.”
Attention to Detail
“I have recommended and personally used the services of Anchor-Ventana and have been very happy with their attention to detail and warranty. When a manufacturer of back painted glass went out of business and their glue started showing through the glass, Anchor-Ventana replaced the glass and researched an alternate glue to complete the project.”

I have never been as impressed…
I have never been as impressed with the quality and professionalism of a company as I have been with Anchor-Ventana Glass. From the person who measured to the crew that installed, everyone was courteous and also the installers did a good job of cleaning up after themselves. I was also impressed with the quality of their product.

Great to Work With
Anchor-Ventana just installed solar screens on my whole house. They were great to work with, and the installers were wonderful! I highly recommend this company.

We recently used Anchor-Ventana for window repair and a new frameless shower enclosure. WOW! Such a class act. We loved the customer service and professional installers. What a great local family company. HIGHLY, HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!!
Cristy, Austin, TX
Polite & Professional
Anchor-Ventana was awesome. I completely redid my bathroom. I had a lot of contractors in and out. Anchor-Ventana’s guys are the only ones who were polite and professional-looking every time they came. They cleaned up any mess they made and even hauled off my old shower door and mirrors for me. I am a repeat customer and will use them again.

I know when I call Anchor-Ventana
I know when I call Anchor-Ventana I’m going to get professional, knowledgeable people that genuinely take pride in the quality of work they do!
Helped Me With Everything
Anchor-Ventana helped me with everything I needed. I wasn’t sure exactly what that was until I visited their Round Rock showroom. So many options. The lady who helped me was excellent.
Johnny, Round Rock, TX
Shower stall is in and looks great. Thank you and Christy for all of your help and guidance. Also, the fellows that did the installation were very nice and really did a nice job of cleaning up after themselves. Mike the fellow that did the measurement was a very nice guy too and seemed to be very experienced. Thanks to all of you. I have recommended and personally used the services of Anchor-Ventana and have been very happy with their attention to detail and warranty. When a manufacturer of back painted glass went out of business and their glue started showing through the glass, Anchor Ventana replaced the glass and researched an alternate glue to complete the project.

Worked With Them for Years
I have worked with Anchor-Ventana for years. They have made glass table tops for me and have installed glass and mirrors for builders I work with on numerous new construction and remodel projects. I have found them to always be professional and responsive. If you need glass for any type of application, they will do what they can to make it possible.

Finished Product is Beautiful
“Originally, the client wanted to use another vendor they had worked with in the past. After a few discussions with the vendor, I decided they were not suited for the precision craftsmanship necessary for this project. I had used Anchor-Ventana on a residential project that required a glass countertop cut in a very unusual shape. I was confident they could make the top for the furniture in the current project. The finished product is beautiful, and the client was thrilled with the results.”

I Just Wanted to Take a Second…
I just wanted to take a second and let you know how much I appreciate Michelle. As I am sure you are aware, she is always on top of things and goes out of her way to be helpful. When things get put in her hands I can check that off my list because I know she is working on it and is going to get it done. That may not sound like much but it is a wonderful feeling from my end. I think she should get a fancy vacation to somewhere exotic. Wait a second scratch that. If she is gone to said vacation then she will not be there to do what she does so, lets just go with a bonus or something. Thank you.
