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!

Full-on Fall Festivities

November is the epitome of fall, the month that successfully sweeps us up into this beautifully cozy time of year. For most, November consists of all things autumnal- cooler days, falling leaves, the holidays just around the corner, and as always, delicious fall foods. We love fall. But one of the best reasons to love fall is, without a doubt, Thanksgiving dinner. With this delicious holiday on just about every American’s mind from the very start of November, we spend an enormous amount of time fine-tuning our interiors, outfitting our kitchenware, and mentally preparing for this grand meal. After all, hosting this mouth-watering holiday can be quite an extravagant undertaking, with so many moving parts to keep track of, mouths to feed, and people to please.

But this year, there’s a whole other added layer of stress to accompany the typical fall holiday craze. This year, things might look a lot different than in times past. And with recommendations from top health officials urging people to forgo this year’s Thanksgiving dinner, many are looking for unique spatial solutions to implement throughout the home in order to keep the annual Thanksgiving dinner, all while ensuring the safety of the whole family. So, if you’re like most, who have a particularly strong aversion to the idea of a Zoom Thanksgiving, you’re not alone. Luckily, The Sliding Door Company has some excellent space-saving solutions to help make this holiday one to remember. This year, it’s all about making sure your guests are comfortable, safe, and can move about your home at ease. So how can you prepare your home (and your mind) for this year’s fall festivities?

Interior Upgrades

First things first in setting your house up for hosting this year. One of the best ways to welcome in the change of season is to do a big seasonal clearing and cleaning of your interiors. Go through packed to the brim closets, rearrange shelves, dust, vacuum, get rid of clothes and other items that don’t serve you anymore, and in general, clear the air. The catharsis of cleaning and clearing can have one of the biggest impacts on your physical and mental well-being and how they relate to your surrounding environment. So, in order to prepare your home (and yourself) to welcome in family and other guests for the holidays, you’ll want to do some serious interior upgrading. The very best way to set the stage for a successful gathering is by starting clearer, cleaner, and leaner.

Safety Solutions

After your home is cleaned and cleared, start to consider what physical solutions you can put in place to help keep your Thanksgiving gathering as safe as possible for the whole family. Many this year are opting for table arrangements in which guests are placed at least 6 feet apart. Some are deciding to hold Thanksgiving dinner outdoors from a patio table where fresh air could help keep everyone safe from the virus. Others are opting to install sliding glass room dividers and glass wall partitions into the open floor plan of their home so as to safely block off areas of the home from guests and the potential for contamination. Floor to ceiling glass wall dividers allow visibility from room to room, and the feeling of togetherness while maintaining safety amongst guests. Glass is always a better choice for standing wall partitions as compared with Plexiglass or other acrylic alternatives, as it is a breeze to clean and wipe down, without the risk of it yellowing, or degrading over time.

Flexibility for the Whole Family

Giving yourself flexibility within the home will be a crucial part of this year’s holiday gatherings. Standing wall dividers don’t require costly and abrasive construction in order to partition off whole areas of the home and can be installed within hours, not days or weeks. And during a time when we don’t know what the next week, month, or even year will bring, flexibility is super important!
