Bringing glass into your home shouldn’t be something that anyone thinks they “can’t do”, simply because they don’t have the right style for it. Glass is a material that, when used properly, can improve the decor and overall feel of any home. Here, Cameo Glass explain why.
The idea that only modern or traditional homes suit glass decor is simply wrong. Sure, modern homes might use more glass features than their traditional counterparts, but that shouldn’t put anyone off incorporating this versatile material into their homes at all.
When it comes to modern homes, as we’ve mentioned, you might find that glass features are slightly more prominent than they are in more vintage rooms. Bringing glass into more traditional properties, however, can also be done. Glass table tops and cabinet doors both add a sense of cleanliness, and can help give your traditional furniture some definition. Elsewhere, glass shower doors can work very well in traditional properties, simply because they tend to look cleaner than their plastic cousins!
Fads and fashions come and go, but glass has remained a constant aspect of home decor for hundreds of years. Whether as a piece of stunning window art in a French mediaeval cathedral or simply an ornament in Henry VIII’s vast collection of treasures, glass has stood the test of time.
Investing in glass isn’t, for this reason, all that risky. Provided you get it right and actually like the feature you’ve decided on, you’ll be able to use it for as long as you want. Glass isn’t generally cheap, so you need to be sure you’re investing in something you like, but once you’ve settled on a piece you’re pretty much set.
