Benefits of Glass Tabletops

Glass tabletops bring a variety of advantages to your furnishings. The following are a few of the benefits you'll get from a glass tabletop:

  • Easy to clean: Glass is easy to keep clean and sanitized.
  • Draws attention to elements you'd like to highlight: If you have a table with an interesting base or have a beautiful rug underneath the table that you don't want to hide, glass keeps them visible.
  • Protects furniture: Wooden furniture is vulnerable to scratches, nicks, condensation rings from glasses, and other damage. Replace a wooden top with glass, or simply cover it for added protection.
  • Lightens and brightens: Glass takes up no visual space and makes areas seem lighter and brighter.
  • Versatility: Creating a unique tabletop is easy with the variety of choices available. Also, options such as tinted glass (to block the sun's harmful UV rays) or safety glass (to make outdoor glass safer) are available.

Custom Shelving

Store-bought shelves never seem to suit your needs. Either they're too deep, or not deep enough. They're never quite in the right configuration, so you may have trouble fitting large or bulky items onto them. Custom glass shelving eliminates these issues since they're designed according to your specifications. They also offer the following additional advantages:

  • Adding the illusion of additional space: Glass shelving appears to float on the wall, creating a light, airy look for any area of your home.
  • Reflecting your personal style: Choose the edgework, color, and tinting you prefer.
  • Offering creative options: Use glass shelving to enhance a partition between rooms, in a curio cabinet, or to create additional kitchen storage. Even if glass shelves are placed in front of a window, they won't block the view.
