Everyone knows it’s nice to have some nice wooden shelves on hand. They’re the perfect place for storing books, CDs, boxes, and more. However, they aren’t the only kind of shelving worth having around. Wooden shelves may offer sturdiness, but there are things they don’t offer. Those things can be obtained with glass display shelving. What exactly is glass display shelving good for? Here are a few things.
Display Important Objects
One of the best things to use glass display shelving for is displaying important objects. If you want your guests’ eyes to be drawn to something, this is the perfect place to put it. It’s a great way to start conversations, offer bragging opportunities, and begin stories.
Trophies are not only a great way to show off your accomplishments, they’re also a great way of saying something about yourself without words. Someone visiting your home or office can spot a trophy and immediately know more about you. Perhaps it’s a trophy for excelling at the visual arts, performing well with a classical instrument, or outdoing all the competitors at a big triathlon. Guests, clients, and peers can look at these trophies and immediately see that you’re a painter, musician, or athlete. That’s a great conversation starter. Plus, trophies look really cool.
If you were never much for competition, you may enjoy looking at things. Most people do. If you’ve ever bought a sculpture – even a cheap one – glass display shelving is the perfect place to put it. Surround it with flowers, books, or nothing at all. You and everyone who visits your home or office can enjoy it regardless.
Glass display shelving is an exceptionally perfect place to put collectibles. Do you seek out beautiful crystals, minerals, and rocks? A glass shelf will offer an excellent place to display them for all to see. Or, maybe you collect figurines. If that’s the case, glass shelving is just as good for sharing those. No matter what you find yourself obsessively hunting down, glass display shelving is where you can bring it all together.
Tanks and Bowls
If you like to keep a few fish, glass display shelving is a great spot to keep them. Small tanks and bowls that aren’t extremely heavy can sit neatly on one of these shelves and be displayed for all to enjoy. Decorating the surrounding shelf with plants, rocks, books, or anything else, really, will only serve to accentuate your beautiful sea life.
What Makes Glass Shelving Different?
Improved Light Flow
Glass shelving is different from wooden shelving because it allows improved light flow. Even without a dedicated display light installed above the shelving, light from around the room will flow with ease through the glass shelves. Therefore, anything displayed on these shelves will be easier to see and enjoy, as it’s always easily illuminated.
Finally, glass is also waterproof. That’s what makes it such a good choice for displaying a fishbowl or plants. A drop of water here and there – or even a notable leak – won’t warp the shelving in the slightest.
