Thank you to our customer Mr. Denby for allowing us to share these stunning pictures of the pool deck glass hand railings he installed at his residence. Here are Denby’s own words on the project:

I wish to thank you and your colleagues at Dulles Glass & Mirror for providing me excellent service in the design, fabrication and delivery of my Tempered Glass Panels for Stainless Steel Handrail to be a part of my newly composed infinity pool and deck project. Attached you will find a series of photo images showing my application of your product and the overall finished project. [...] I hope you enjoy the photos.

The Future of Water-Saving Showers Is Now!


The Future of Water-Saving Showers Is Now!

This technology is in the lab “now,” and hopefully in our bathrooms in “the very near future!” We here at Dulles Glass and Mirror pride ourselves on being eco-friendly.

Did you know glass is virtually infinitely recyclable? We sell a product that can be repeatedly recycled, unlike cardboard which has a very finite number of times it can be recycled. So when we saw this technology coming out of Sweden called  the OrbSys Shower, we were amazed. Imagine cutting down on your water consumption by 30 times–that is exactly what this technology can do.
In layman’s terms, the way the technology works is, as the shower-water drains, it is instantly purified into drinking water quality, and then pumped back up and out of the shower head. This means the water is being constantly recycled… hence cutting down on one’s water consumption. Watch this CNN feature on the ground-breaking OrbSys technology. You will be amazed.  And if you coupled that with a beautiful shower enclosure from Dulles Glass and Mirror, what could be better for your eco-friendly, in-home aquatic oasis?

Norwegian Town Receives First-Ever Winter Sunlight After Installing Mountainside Mirror System


Norwegian Town Receives First-Ever Winter Sunlight After Installing Mountainside Mirror System

The town of Rjukan in Norway is nestled in between the mountains. This means in the winter time, the town receives no sunlight. In the past, to cope with this situation, the town had installed a cable car to allow people to travel up the mountainside to catch some sun.

Now, with the help of massive mirrors and helicopters for the installation, this Norwegian town is seeing the light–literally. Even in those dreary, dark winter months, a key section of the town square will have sunlight reflected onto it via these huge mirrors. It shows you the power of mirrors and what can be accomplished with them goes way beyond just seeing if your lipstick is smudged!

Here’s a photo of the sun-mirror in action:

The Split-Personality Mirror


The Split-Personality Mirror

We’re always interested in finding art that involves both glass and mirrors. Often times our customers use our glass and mirror products to create DIY-projects and functional art. And this is a great example of functional art.

Have you ever been in a rush to get ready in the morning and the one bathroom mirror is always behind hogged? German art-designers ‘Halb Halb’ have created what is known as the split-personality mirror. Check out the pictures (more after the jump)–they speak for themselves.

Stunning Custom Stair Glass Handrails By Dulles Glass and Mirror (PHOTOS)

These pictures showcase glass railings Dulles Glass and Mirror recently installed in a private residence in Northern Virginia. These glass handrails were customized to perfectly accompany the home’s staircase. You will notice the sleek glass handrails do not impede any light and give the stairs an “airy feel.” No more stumbling up a dark flight of steps.

Glass hand railings offer modern styling and structural soundness, and combine safety with durability. They have long been the most popular choice in commercial applications (for example, see any Apple Store’s architecture), but are now also showing up in residential designs thanks to many design-savvy homeowners. Some of the most popular applications aside from staircases include pools, gymnasiums, catwalks, and patios.  Find out more about our residential glass hand rails here.

Hi,

I wanted to let you know that I received my custom glass order two days ago and unpacked it yesterday. It was masterfully packed in two large packages. I used the glass to build a table to put behind my sofa and it came out beautifully. My wife and I love it. It really adds to our living area. I used eight polished nickel shower glass brackets to hold the four pieces of glass together to form the base of the table. The top is 15″ wide and 60″ long. I’ve attached a picture.

Thanks for a great job.

Harold F.

Thanks to Harold for showing us how things are done as far as a truly custom and truly inventive DIY glass table. It really shows the versatility and utility of glass in one’s home. While not everyone has the same DIY prowess as Harold, just simply getting a glass table top as a protective topping surface on one’s existing table, is also an affordable way to add something new to one’s home decor. We will help you customize the glass, or offer you our selection of in-stock sizes. Really, the options are endless… just be sure to choose Dulles Glass and Mirror!
