There are several options for shelving when building and designing a home. You can choose from various types of wood, metal, or even glass shelves. You might be thinking that glass shelves wouldn’t be too logical because they would just buckle and shatter under the lightest weight, but this isn’t true at all. Here are three things you need to know about glass shelves to decide whether they might be the best fit for your clients.
- Sturdy: The first thing to know about glass shelves is that they are very sturdy. Here at Residential Building Specialties, Inc., we offer shelves made of highly tempered glass, so they don’t break or damage easily. In fact, if they do break, they break into smooth, round-edged pieces that are far less dangerous than sharp shatters from other glass materials. They also won’t warp, stain, or get damaged by water like wooden shelves.
- Easy to clean: With wooden and metal shelves, you might need specialized cleaners. With glass shelves, you just need a rag to wipe away any dust and a simple glass cleaner to clean any smudges. This makes them easy to maintain.
- Variety of designs: With glass shelves, you don’t have to go with the greenish tint of normal glass. You can choose a more basic and clearer option or even frosted glass or mirrored glass for the shelves.
Glass shelves can be a great addition to closets, display shelves, kitchen cabinetry, and more. You’ll surely find something that your client will love. Give us a call if you would like to learn more.
