Do you often procrastinate or make excuses when it comes to incorporating more exercise into your day? You could go for a walk, but the weather isn’t always conducive to a walk around the block, and if you suffer from seasonal allergies, being outside can trigger uncomfortable symptoms.

Of course, there’s the local gym, but maybe the idea of exercising in front of other people makes you head to the sofa with a bag of chips and a soda instead.

Why not try to transform an area of your home into your own private workout studio with custom mirrors? This strategy may provide the inspiration you need to get started. Find an activity you love, create your dream studio, and watch your motivation soar.

Approach to Designing a Custom Glass Shower Door

When shower stalls and tubs need enclosing, homeowners typically opt for glass enclosures. Glass enclosures are luxurious and easy to maintain. A main feature of glass enclosures is the door.

If you want a custom glass enclosure, look into designing a customized door. The first step is to decide what kind of door you need. A main driver of the decision is the type of door needed, be it a glass shower stall or a shower and tub combination. Below are some main steps for further planning the customized door.

Feather Friends or Foes? Birds Versus Your Windows

Glass collisions prove fatal for nearly one billion birds in the United States annually, according to the American Bird Conservancy. What can you do to keep the wildlife and your windows safe? Before your brand-new windows cause a bird calamity, take a look at what you need to know to reduce the risks.

Understand the Problem

Why do birds fly into windows? They don’t think they’re coming into your home for a meal or to nest. Instead, birds see the reflection of the sky, trees, and everything else outdoors and think the window is an extension of the environment.

Important Considerations for Choosing Window Frames

Many homeowners focus primarily on the window as a whole, considering what styles and number of glass panes will best suit their needs. However, the window frames are important enough to consider on their own. They affect the look, the function, and the energy efficiency of your windows. Below are some important considerations for when you’re choosing window frames.

Frame Material

Your biggest consideration for the frame is its material. The material you choose will affect the frames’ appearance and energy efficiency. It will also affect the initial cost of your windows.

How to Create Your Own Master Suite

Your home is a sanctuary, but you still deserve to have a personal oasis within your four walls. If you want to make some upgrades to your house this year, why not finally build a dream space for yourself? In just a few easy steps, you can turn your bedroom and bathroom into a private master suite. Read on to find out how.

Must-Have Features for Your Bedroom

Regardless of how much time you spend in your bedroom, you want to relax in it and enjoy a good night’s rest. Include these must-haves as you create your master suite.

What Our Clients Say

Hidden Gem

I had 2 windshields replaced on my previous car at a different glass company. I went back there and got an estimate for this windshield but thought I would get a second estimate from Central Glass. I am sure glad as it saved me over $140. This is now my glass company of choice.
