Enrich your home with 10 Classy glass decor ideasBy Smitha Jose
Decor Tips Tweet 0 Comment(s)
“Don't throw stones at each other when you are living in a glass house''. We were wise enough to not take this proverb in the literal sense. But what if you are really living in one ? Wouldn't that be an awesome experience ? But that might sound a bit risky at the same time. How about some glass decor instead?
There are plenty of decor items that can get a glassy look. Here's some for you to get started with.
1. Doors and windows
These are items that might have occurred to you when you first heard of glass decor. While glass windows have been in use since forever, glass doors too have started to become a rage.
Stained glass are a variant that has remained a favourite amongst us since the ancient time. The art work on a piece of glass is a complete delight to watch. While it enhance the lighting of the room in the night, it fills the dark room with colours at the crack of the day with sunlight piercing through them.
2. Glass fountains
How about a fountain inside your home? Frosted glass panels supported by wooden frames on your walls can create a virtual fountain on your walls. To complete the enticing look, line some natural indoor plants.
3. Glass wall decor
Flowers are one of the prettiest creations on earth and now these pretty flowers can bloom on your walls too!!
A bunch of colourful flower shaped glass plates on the walls can steal the show.
4. Glass planters
There are many amongst us who are crazy about gardening. The very view of lovely green plants hanging from the ceiling is the best one to wake up to in the morning. To make it more heavenly, use glass jars or tubes to plant them. The pristine scene is going to mesmerise you.
5. Kitchen back splash glass panels
Its high time you thought of giving your kitchen a better look. Some go for the happy- happy look with colourful cabinets and others go a sophisticated and sleek one. Whatever your choice be, a glass panel back splash will prove to be a great partner.
Dining or coffee tables are yet another decor items that can be turned glassy.
Whether its real wood or a wood finish, glass and wood has always been a preferred combination when it comes to furniture. Teapoys, coffee tables or dining tables- when done in this combination will give your room a glossy and classy finish.
7. Celestial Glass lights
You might say that all lights come in a glass shelf – in one or the other form and there is nothing unique about. True. But, there are also lights which shows the glass in true light, like the one shown below.
Trap lights have photo luminescent pigments inside them which store light when exposed to luminance which makes it glow in the dark for hours. The ambience you get? I think you got the answer for that.
8. Glass bathroom sink
A place where you wash off your day's tiredness can be made more appealing with a wash counter made of glass. The colour of the glass should definitely be the one that cools your eyes. Sea green or turquoise will be a good pick.
9. Glass table decoration
Table decoration with glass is the easiest of DIYs. Lustrous glass jars and bottles can turn into pretty flower vase, candle holders or potpourri holders giving your table a festive look.
10. Glass floorings
If you think you have had enough, this one will drive you crazy. Glass – on the floor. Glass- as the floor. While this might be a common place in huge hotels and restaurants, not many homes have tried this out. Your living room turns into a ball room or a favourite spot for a gala time as people would hate to miss the splendid view of your floor.
To give a dramatic twist to the setting, sea shells and sands can be poured in. An aquarium beneath your feet will not be a bad option either.
