Add a Touch of Glam with Glass Drawer Handles

Posted

Bringing a little glamour into your home is easy – simply add a touch of glass. From decorative ornaments and arty pieces, to glass drawer handles and mirrors, it’s a wonderfully versatile material and comes in infinite shapes, cuts and styles. So, you’re sure to find something that’ll fit right in with the décor of your home. Here are some creative ideas to get you started.

Lighting

Glass lighting is a stunning presence in any room. Chandeliers are, more often than not, thought of as a little extravagant but, in reality, they come in all shapes and sizes, and can be a beautiful addition to any room. Glass wall lights, such as mirrored tealight holders, are eye-catching both when lit and unlit as the mirrored surfaces always illuminate a room, reflecting natural light.

Coffee Table

A glass coffee table is always an understated, elegant piece in a living room or office. Quite often, large, dark, wooden tables can dominate a room and absorb the natural light. Glass tables, however, help to keep a room bright and offer a functional surface without dominating the space. An advantage to glass tables is that they fit with any pre-existing colour schemes, so they’re interchangeable should you want to redecorate a room or reorganise your furniture.

Mirrors

Ah, mirrors. A clever, classy and timeless decorative asset. They can make a room appear larger, brighter and also place it within an era of choice, simply by their cut or frame. Antique frames, for example, create a classy ambience, whilst a dressing room mirror, lit around the edges with large bulbs, creates a retro feel. Whatever style you choose, mirrors add glamour to any room in the house. Get creative with a bathroom mirror design, for example. Experiment. See how a unique and distinctive mirror can change the atmosphere in any room.

Drawer Handles

Another great way to glam-up a room is to give a chest of drawers a mini-makeover with glass drawer handles. From wardrobes and cupboards, to doors and drawers, glass handles and knobs add a touch of elegance. Floral designs add a vintage feel, multi-faceted designs beautifully disperse light, and simpler shapes fit seamlessly with every style of furniture. See our glass drawer handle and door knob designs here for inspiration!

Ornaments

Coloured glass bottles and vases are very fashionable and look phenomenal when the sunlight brings out their vibrant designs. Windowsills aren’t the only places you can place glass ornaments, however. Glass hearts and baubles can be hung anywhere – in windows, alcoves, bookcases or simply on walls - and add a touch of glamour without being overly flamboyant. Hang our glass hearts from house plants, hooks or even your new glass drawer handles!

Whether it’s a mini face-lift you’re looking to give your furniture, or a bold new asset to a room that needs a fresh breath of life, add glass for glamour!

How to pull off an Antique look in Your Home

You might not have thought of it before, but combining modern and antique looks can actually create some surprisingly perfect décor matches. The desire to own the newest, shiniest pieces for our homes has given way to a need to fill our homes with unique pieces that have a story to tell and have stood the test of time. The popularity of antique and vintage styles may have developed as a result of the economic recession, during which many of us had smaller disposable incomes and thus revitalizing old furniture or objects with a rich heritage became the trend.Now, many people often wonder how to achieve this look and where to find antiques at an affordable price. For starters, we’d suggest trying to get off the beaten path. For example, visit flea markets and antique fairs, such as those in London, Bristol and Bath. Eclectic vintage treasures are both uniquely beautiful and useful. Unite an odd collection of household objects by displaying items that colour-match tonally. For a more [...]

And perhaps its no wonder since it oozes with style, sophistication, quality and character, with [...]
