Transform Your Home with Qubi Glass

Tips for instructors, self-starters, and creatives working from home

If you’re like most 21st century adults in their formative working years- there’s a high chance you’re an independent contractor who relies on others to maintain your unique business. For an older generation, this flexibility and unstructured work schedule may appear risky or unstable, yet for the younger generation whose lifestyle relies on having a flexible work life, being an independent contractor and teaching classes makes total sense. However, during the coronavirus pandemic, having a fluid job like a yoga instructor (which relies on community involvement) has proven to be difficult- even with all of our modern technology and video conferencing! And though many attempted to teach classes from a virtual platform, there were a lot of technical and awkward difficulties that came along with it. After all, online painting workshops, Skype therapy, or tutoring, all quickly become impersonal and awkward over a virtual screen. These activities and lessons are unquestionably better in person. So what can you do about it?

Whether you teach yoga classes or painting workshops, writing, or tutoring, there is finally a spatial solution available to implement in your home or studio so that you can get back to teaching in-person while still feeling safe and risk-free! QubiGlass walls are the ultimate physical barrier between you and your clients! Perfect for these turbulent times of uncertainty, Qubi Glass wall partitions can be installed freestanding in any space, as this new system uses large sliding glass dividers that allow you to wrap an existing wall with glass walls in an open floor plan. Wrap around existing wall partitions in your home or studio to enhance the cleanliness and safety between two distinct spaces without paying the high cost of outfitting an entire space with new construction just to teach classes! Compared with Plexiglass or other synthetic glass alternatives, Qubi Glass is 100 percent real glass and can withstand constant cleaning and disinfecting with harsh chemicals. Over time, acrylic glass substitutes will fade, yellow, become scratched, and cloudy, while glass will remain clear and scratch-free for years to come!

Why glass?

Glass is the preferred choice for medical facilities, educational institutions, and working professionals due to its modern aesthetic, cleanliness, and longevity. Sturdy, non-porous materials like glass are exceptionally easy to wipe down and disinfect without compromising longevity.

Qubi Glass is a new glass partition developed by The Sliding Door Company, and is exceptionally well-made, durable, and built to withstand the test of time. These glass wall partitions are offered in a vast array of different sizes, configurations, and opacities. They can be ordered to suit your specific needs however big or small and are installed by a team of professionals within less than a day! That means no serious construction or disruption to your busy schedule or home life! These glass wall partitions were designed to work for commercial or residential spaces and are very easy to set up and deconstruct. During a time when we don’t know what the next week, month, or even year will bring, flexibility is super important!

Help cap airborne contamination between you and your students/clients with the most reliable physical barriers available!

Preparing for Winter Vacation

With the winter season quickly approaching, we can guess that this year may look a little bit different for the typical sunbird. With few options for international travel this season, most North Americans will be planning trips within the country to satiate the yearly travel cravings, all while remaining safe and risk-free.

Outfitting Your Home for Short Term Stays

As a homeowner, you should consider the many financial fruits of hosting guests throughout the peak winter season. After all, people will find a way to travel, perhaps not to exotic destinations outside of the U.S.- but they’ll travel. In fact, the rate of national travel has surged in recent months, generating an unprecedented country-wide travel economy. That being said, this fall presents a perfect opportunity to gear your interiors up for the onslaught of winter vacation tourism before the season hits you at full volume! So, whether you’re in California or New York, Texas, or Tennessee, you can bet there will be another wave of tourism coming to your town soon! And with little indication of how long this pandemic will last, it’s a wise move to plan for the long-haul.

After all, short term rentals are an excellent way to bring in extra income without investing too much in the exorbitant cost of construction. With the right solutions and spatial planning, you can seamlessly create an entirely new closed off stay within your home, with virtually no major construction! Curious to hear more?Of course, you are.

Within the Home
If you aren’t planning on building an ADU to host your short-term travelers, making use of extra square footage within your home is an excellent choice. A great way to block off entire areas of your home and create separate rooms is to install floor to ceiling glass wall partitions. With so many options available through The Sliding Door Company, you can choose from countless configurations to achieve the aesthetic and convenience that you desire. Sliding glass wall partitions, sliding glass barn doors and opaque glass wall partitions come in varying sizes and glass opacities so you can tailor your partitions to meet your specific needs for hosting!

Outside the Home
If you have an unused shed, a garage, or any standing unit apart from that house, to consider converting the space into a passive income short-term stay is never a bad idea! To seamlessly build entire rooms within your ADU, install floor to ceiling standing wall partitions and seamlessly construct an entire floor plan within a day! The Sliding Door Company delivers and installs your glass partitions at no additional cost and gets the job done as quickly as possible- meaning you could be hosting your first guests in less than a week!

Covid Safety Precautions
Of course, existing within COVID times, it’s always important to maintain a clean and well-kept environment that is often sanitized and devoid of germs. Glass is an excellent solution for freestanding wall partitions, as it’s the easiest material to clean and disinfect. Unlike plexiglass or other acrylic alternatives, real glass is not porous and will withstand constant cleaning and harsh chemicals throughout the years. Especially when hosting a short-term stay, with multiple weekly guests, you’ll have to prepare for a lot of cleaning and disinfecting between stays. To save time and hassle, you’ll want to streamline the disinfecting process and make sure you have the tools you need to be successful. Sliding glass wall partitions?Your best asset.

Another thing to consider while hosting is to limit your exposure to an influx of new guests. It will be safer and more easeful if you can offer a separate entrance for your guests to enter and exit the unit. This way, you and your family won’t run the risk of coming in contact with more people than necessary, and your guests can feel safe and risk-free.

Keeping these details in mind, it should be a breeze to update your interiors for hosting this winter, all while staying safe!
