USE OF GLASS IN HOME DECOR

USE OF GLASS IN HOME DECOR

If you are seeking a new look for your room, change the  location of your wall decorations. This will give your room a new look without having to spend money on new pictures or paint for the walls. Place a mirror on an adjacent wall to an interesting picture or piece of artwork and the mirror will reflect the image and add a sense of space. Mirrors can dramatically change the appearance of a room. A mirror brightens a room by reflecting the limited light and also gives the illusion of space. Mirrors can be hung over an ugly spot on the wall or can even be used as a table top.
Hang a decorative mirror near a window in a dark room. This will allow the light to reflect off the mirror creating more natural light. To create the illusion of depth, paint one wall with a dark, contrasting colour to the other walls. Then hang a decorative mirror on the dark wall to create a sense of depth in the room. Create a charming entry way by hanging a framed mirror topped with a floral swag. This will create light at the entrance as well as provide a last minute peak before heading out the door. Add mirror tiles to the backs of bookcases to add a sense of depth. Add a mirror to your kitchen back splash to reflect light while cooking. Place a custom sized mirror on the top of damaged or unattractive piece of furniture to disguise it. The use of beveled glass has become standard decorating option as designers opt for creative ways to enhance small living spaces. A room can take on a completely different appearance when beveled glass is used. Beveling is always a pretty addition to glass and with careful planning it will produce much more than just an attractive mirror.
Glass doors unlike wooden doors can be used to create natural lighting system in otherwise dark areas. Glass doors can have bi-fold doors or can be sliding. One can consider having glass doors in place of the conventional wooden ones to make the interiors bright and divides the space efficiently when we need some amount of privacy. We often have spaces which needs to be demarcated and needs to be in communion with each other then glass doors are the best option. A simple wood frame with crystal clear glass panes can create wonders in areas between the living and the dining; the bedroom and the study; the dining and the prayer room. If it has to be done with minimum expenses Glass doors can be fixed with aluminum frames. When one needs privacy you can use stained glass lites in interior French doors. To make your room more lively it can be illuminated.
To beautify glass door we can sandblast the given design on theglass door. Apart from this we get an element of privacy when a design is etched on the glass pane. In surface etching the design is etched lightly on the surface and the etched portion looks white on a plane glass background. Depending on the requirement the design can be etched out. Another technique of designing glass is carving wherein designs are carved deeply in the glass. These designs look three dimensional. Here etching is done deeply. We have different designs etched out to our taste and requirement. Glass etchings look extremely beautiful homes on sliding doors especially when it is closed.
When a glass door is combined with another material the door can look extremely creative. One of the most popular combinations is metal with glass, with creative grillwork which apart from beautifying gives security to the glass door.
Another most cost effective option is that of vinyl films which comes in a range of designs. In this method the designs of the glass door can be changed frequently as these films are adhesive free.
