Deck the Halls with Decorative Glass

PENSACOLA, FLA - Deck the halls --- and the closets, and the bedrooms and the kitchens --- with decorative glass this holiday season!

Experts at Hy-Lite recommend decking out the entire home in time for the holidays with stylish privacy windows. "Many people think decorative glass windows are used exclusively for bathrooms, but that's far from the truth," says Roger Murphy, president of Hy-Lite, a U.S. Block Windows Company. "Wherever there's a window opening in the home, there's a great potential to add beauty with a decorative glass window.

"While bathrooms are an ideal location for privacy windows, we've also seen them used in family rooms, guest rooms and kitchens. The possibilities within the home are endless for 'decking the walls and the halls' with decorative glass windows."

From traditional to contemporary to modern, decorative glass windows complement a wide variety of home styles. One of Hy-Lite's most popular product lines, the Home Designer Collection, includes Mission, Baroque, Prairie and Metro style windows in several sizes. Each window is constructed with silkscreened tempered privacy glass and finished with textured privacy glass on the exterior to provide seclusion. Light filters into the windows, however people cannot see through the windows into the home.

For home offices, living rooms, family rooms and foyers, architecturally-shaped windows in oval and geometric shapes provide a unique way to add light into the home. Available in both fixed and operable styles (including casement and awning), decorative glass windows feature double- or triple-glazed construction with options such as elegant wrought iron elements and metal caming.

"When the popular holiday song says, 'don we now our gay apparel,' I can't help but think of a house getting all dressed up by adding decorative glass windows!" says Murphy. "Clear glass windows are functional, but boring. With designs like Craftsman, Spring Flower and Victorian, a house certainly is 'all decked out' when decorative glass windows highlight special areas of the home."

Hy-Lite, a U.S. Block Windows Company, is the leading manufacturer of acrylic block, glass block and decorative glass windows. The company's privacy product options include acrylic block shutters, accent panels, radius walls, partition walls and door inserts. Since 1988, the Pensacola, Florida-based company has been committed to providing residential and commercial construction professionals and homeowners with elegant, affordable privacy window designs.
