How to Incorporate Glass Shelves Into Your Interior Design

You are decorating a new home and you want to make sure to incorporate some glass into the design. All the decorating magazines you have been reading tell you that glass will reflect light and make the room look bigger and cleaner. Glass shelves can be a great addition to a living room, bedroom, or bathroom.

The Livingroom

If you have a living room that does not need much shelving, you can add a few small floating shelves that will store small trinkets or books. 

If you are decorating a dorm room or a studio apartment, you may find that you need a lot of large shelves. How you configure what is on your shelves will be the difference in whether your place looks stylish or sloppy.

Put several different sizes of items on each shelf, but make sure each one has the same number of items. This will add symmetry to your room without making it look too uniform.

You can also decorate glass shelves by putting a certain item on each shelf. For example, put a book on every shelf along with other random items.

Place the same items on all the shelves but in different configurations. For example, put a book a water can, and a small vase on each shelf in one row, then put a water can, book, and small vase on the next row.

The Bedroom

A few shelves make a bedroom easier to keep organized. A child’s room can always use shelves for games and stuffed animals. Put up a shelf or two and proudly display those sports trophies and awards you won in high school. Put a favorite toy from childhood on display or put that arts and crafts project your kid worked so hard on on a shelf. 

In The Closet

Shelves made of frosted glass make the perfect shelf organizer for a closet. The shelves will make everything easier to find. Glass shelves are lightweight but strong. You can reorganize shelves at any time. You will not have to take apart and reassemble a complicated organizer. 

In The Kitchen

Glass shelves will add beauty and functionality to any kitchen. Having your pots, pans, and cooking utensils at arm’s reach will save you a ton of time. Everything will be much easier to put away as well.

If you are not much of a cook, you can still have fun making your kitchen look good. Take empty wine jugs or bottles and drip candle wax on them for an Italian motif. 

Start a salt and pepper shaker collection and display them on your new glass shelves. You can also display fine china or souvenir plates and shot glasses from all the cool places you have been. 

The Bathroom

Shelves not only look good in a bathroom, they are necessary. You will need them to store towels and toiletries.  Figuring out where to put the shelves is the challenging part. If you have limited space, you should get floating shelves. If you have a big bathroom that will be used by many people, you will want a large free-standing unit. 

When you shop, you will find many options for bathroom shelves. You will find everything from classic glass shelving that comes with beveled edges and gold trim to shelving that with painted images on them.

Because glass makes a room look bigger, you can increase the value of your home. When potential buyers tour the house, it will not hurt if the bathroom looks larger.

If you select your furniture wisely, it will last for years and look great. As always we can help with the labor to install these shelves for you by working with our supply partners.
