Owning glass table tops doesn't limit you to the possibility of using glass on other items in your home. If you've ever had experience with glass on furniture or just using as giant mirrors, you know how effective they can be in a room. By strategically placing mirrors in certain parts of a small room alone, you can instantly make the room look larger. That's especially true with mirrors taking up the entire space of a wall.

When it comes to tables, shelving, and countertops, you can achieve the same effect. You can also use glass to achieve better lighting in an overly dark room if you place the above items in strategic locations.

Glass Table Top Advantages

When you have glass on the top of a table, you're already reflecting things around you to give the illusion that the room is bigger. Also, using glass tables near windows can help you reflect light around the room. Placing the glass table near your largest window helps this and becomes very useful when you want to fill a room more with natural light.

You also don't have to worry about scratches and dents as you would when you buy a wooden table. If you happen to get stains on the glass while entertaining guests, glass table tops are very easy to clean with regular cleaning solutions. Since glass can't be damaged from these cleaning solutions like wood can, you already have less of a headache in maintaining the table.

Glass Shelving Advantages

If you're not into glass tables, you might find a lot of positive uses for glass shelving. They provide the same reflective qualities of glass tables and help make certain cramped spaces look more spacious. They also have more of an appealing aesthetic than the bland wooden shelf look everybody else has. 

Glass shelves also make any antiques you have stand out more because the glass shelves can look seemingly transparent. This works the same on glass tables when displaying items underneath the table. There, they can be seen, yet protected from any activity above the glass.

Glass Countertop Advantages

If you thought glass countertops in your kitchen might be considered too delicate, you'll be surprised at how durable they are and how easy they are to clean. Just like the glass tables and shelves, they're perfect for maintaining without having to worry about maintaining wood or other materials that stain easily. They also endure high heat, which is perfect when preparing food and setting hot dishes on the surface.

Aesthetically, it also creates a beautiful look to your kitchen by helping to reflect more natural light. Plus, variations on the glass can be made through different colors and textures.
