How to bring more light into your home with reflective surfaces

January 30, 2018

reflective surfaces

Adding light to your home will make your rooms feel larger as well as more welcoming. You’ll also be able to spend more time in your home without having to turn on your lights, saving you money. Natural light is good for us as well as being useful for everyday life. Reflective surfaces are a fabulous and easy way of bringing more light into your home. Light can be reflected around your room to create a stylish home that the whole family loves spending time in. These are our favourite ways of bringing more light into your home using reflective surfaces.


Glass splashbacks are beautiful and functional additions to your kitchen, bathroom or indeed any other room in your house. Used as protection for your walls against water damage or oil splattering when cooking, they can also be decorative. Take the kitchen above; the glass splashbacks make this minimalist kitchen look trendy, modern and full of light by reflecting the whiteness of the units.


Hanging a mirror opposite a window will ensure that light flows around your home easily. This is a great idea for smaller rooms as it can give the illusion of more space. Why not have a bespoke mirror made in an unusual shape? Mirrors also make great centrepieces for a dining room or instead of a picture above the bed. Mirrored surfaces could also be incorporated into your kitchen cupboards which lets light bounce around.

Glass Balustrades

Glass balustrades are a brilliant way of keeping your home safe yet still open. These barriers are ideal alternatives to banisters or for a mezzanine floor. Using glass, light can travel through and reflect throughout your home. By being transparent too, your home will feel more open as well as larger.


Your kitchen worktops can also be made of reflective materials including, glass, marble or quartz. Ensure your kitchen is a stylish place that you love spending time in. The kitchen looks its best when bathed in light and this makes cooking up beautiful meals so much easier. With scratch and heat resistant glass, your kitchen will have never looked better.

We have recently had our front door and windows replaced by Jack of Glass. They were great. The communication was amazing, we knew every step of the way what was happening and they left place spotless. Our new door and windows have completely changed the house. Very happy and would recommend to anyone.

Jack of glass have recently replaced all my windows efficiently and to a high standard. The price was also very reasonable. The customer service was outstanding along with the services they provide. Highly recommended.

Mr Bennett

I had to replace a small double glazed panel in a window. I though it would be difficult to get anybody interested as it was such a small job. However, Jack of Glass did the work. They visited the house to take the measurements, ordered the replacement glass and fitted it all very efficiently and at a reasonable cost. I will use them again.
