The Benefits Using Wall Glass Shelves
Wall glass shelves were always very popular in bathrooms but have seen an increase in popularity throughout the rest of the home. There are several benefit of wall glass shelves. One major advantage of wall glass shelves is the ability to use creative lighting effects. Traditional wooden display boxes require exterior track lighting or individual lighting in each cubicle, but glass allows lighting to shine through from above and below. Individual spot lighting placed under the shelves can create a wondrous under lighting effect, especially in a darkened room at night. The reflected light through the glass can give off additional back or under lighting. Another advantage of wall glass shelves is a little more psychological. Viewers perceive them to be nearly as delicate as the items displayed on them. This means that visitors who handle collectibles may take even more precautions while moving them in and out of the curio cabinets or display cases.
In reality, most are formed from tempered glass and are generally as durable as the wood shelves they replace. But anything that will encourage gentle handling of expensive antiques and collectibles can only be a good thing for nervous collectors. Wall glass shelves may not be practical for all storage needs, but they do provide an alternative to functional but aesthetically bland shelving units. Flower vases displayed on wall glass shelves in a public area provide more visual interest for visitors. Using these shelves can offer interior designers more versatility than using specific woods or metals for storage and display purposes.
