There are several reasons to have new glass fitted in your existing windows, side lights and doors. Is your current glass coloured or patterned? We can replace it with more modern, stylish glass. Does your glass comply with current Australian Standards? Or is it an older style that is neither toughened nor laminated? Or has your window or door’s glass simply been smashed? In most cases, the glass can be easily changed without any structural work. At Artform, we can help you select new glass that looks both modern and fresh and is safe for your whole family.
Many homes still contain annealed or untoughened float glass in areas such as hinged doors, sliding and low-level glass. These areas are subject to human impact. Running kids and toddlers can easily fall into these areas, suffering severe injuries. Australian Safety Standards are updating all the time. Luckily, there are many safety products available, including toughened and laminated glass. These types of glass can come in various tints or even performance-coated variants, offering UV protection.
Amber or coloured glass was popular in the ’60s and ’70s, as well as patterned glass. The intention of this glass was to provide privacy and to cast a yellow light, in keeping with the style of house that was built back then. Fashions change and so do building trends, and this old glass no longer looks modern or fresh. The most popular type of glass now used is white translucent laminated glass. It is a privacy glass that transmits a fresh, bright light into the home, whilst offering a greenish-white appearance. Come into Artform’s showroom and see what a modern glass replacement can do to freshen the look of your place.
I have known the staff and directors down in Darley Street for over 20 years, and in that time, Artform Living has framed over 400 of my artworks. My clients often comment on their framing expertise and, in particular, their large range of picture frames to suit all styles of artwork. The staff there are always welcoming and will offer you a varied range of services, from trophy and memorabilia framing to glass splashbacks and art restoration advice. I highly recommend the Artform Living team, if you want it on time and done professionally!
To Matt and the team from Artform, thank you so much for the beautiful splashbacks installed in my kitchen. I was very impressed by the professionalism and friendly service provided by your company from start to finish and for Matt’s expert advice on choice of finish and placement. From the showroom staff to the installation crew, everyone was courteous and did an excellent and efficient job. I would happily recommend Artform Living to anyone wanting the very best in quality and service.
Whilst choosing frames with Artform, I’ve always found their staff to be very helpful, suggesting ideas you wouldn’t have thought of yourself. Having been extremely happy with their framing work, when I renovated my kitchen last year, I decided to use Artform for the glass splashback. They arrived on time, supplied us with samples (which no-one else offered) and paid attention to detail, even cleaning up the kitchen area afterwards. The finished result is amazing. I found the experience very reassuring and have had many comments on the splashback. In the near future, we will be renovating our bathroom and I will certainly approach Artform again.
For over 15 years, I have engaged Artform for my professional framing - from works on paper to large canvas paintings, as well as three-dimensional objects. I value the advice and aesthetic guidance of the team while working with them to develop framing solutions for my exhibitions. The service is always friendly, the standard of craftmanship is high and the work is always delivered on time. It is always a pleasure working with the Artform team.
A special thank you to the staff at Artform Living. Tim and Matt installed a new frameless shower screen and new glass shelves, which modernised our ensuite. A very clean and efficient job. I would highly recommend this company.
From creative concept to seamless installation, Artform were so amazing I wish I’d bought shares in the company. From the moment we walked in through to the finishing touches (final glass polish and rubbish clean-up), everyone in your team was not only super helpful and friendly, but a delight to deal with. We loved all your fantastic design ideas and patience, and the facelift to our kitchen, laundry and bathrooms have made a world of difference. It was just like a complete reno, but all for a fraction of the time and budget - just a super economical Artform facelift! I couldn’t be happier and would highly recommend you guys to anyone.
Artform Living is different to most glass suppliers; we have a massive showroom open six days a week, with designers and glaziers on hand, ready to give you colour, design and compliance advice. What’s more, large samples are available for all our customers to try at home. See what that colour really looks like in the nighttime and daylight in your kitchen. Just pop in and visit us. Meantime, why not use our Colour Sampler to see how some of the amazing colours we have look in-situ?
