When designing a snug, your thoughts will gravitate towards rich colours, sumptuously soft upholstery, and layers of prints and patterns. However, you probably won’t be thinking about the glazing. While it might seem to stand at odds with the idea of making a snug feel cosy, the addition of steel screens, doors and windows can have a transformative effect. Bespoke glazing will flood the space with light, which will create a welcoming atmosphere.
The addition of glazing will also help to make a naturally small snug seem bigger. ‘Advanced glazing options mean tailor-made, steel-framed screens maximise natural illumination without compromising the space. The insulating properties will provide comfort in the cooler weather, whilst enhanced acoustic properties keep noise at bay, essential for a snug’, says Russell Ager.
