Get Creative With Artistic Glass Shelving
Contemporary design tend to have a more minimalist quality meaning less is more but there are ways to display your photos, artwork and objet-de-arte that keeps the style up and the clutter down. A great way to do this is with some modern style wall shelving.
There is no better way to maximize the minimalism (if that is even possible?) by using glass shelving. Contemporary art glass wall shelving comes in all sorts of shapes and sizes to suit almost any decorating need. Choose from funky irregular shapes, graceful arcs and dramatic half-moon shapes. The nature of the materials makes it perfect for shaping into unusual and unexpected designs.
Glass wall shelving is surprisingly easy to install, even for the non-handy type like me. The usually mount to the wall with a bracket that screws into the wall allowing you to simply slide the shelf into place creating a cantilevered mount that makes gravity do all the work. Once in place, these light and airy shelves can hold a surprising amount of weight for their size.
Longer shelved usually rely on a stronger system of metal bars with rubber o-rings to keep it from slipping but found these shelves to be just as easy to instal. Make sure you use a level to keep it straight because any variation from level can be really noticeable and even have some unexpected results. Contemporary art glass shelving has rounded edges and large radius corners for safety and then polished to create a gleaming, greenish edge that looks amazing.
The best part about this modern shelving solution is when you create your own grouping. There are almost limitless opportunities to get creative and design a grouping that are perfect for your own individual needs and requirements. Do several small glass shelves in an irregular grouping or put some of the longer shelved side by side to create one long shelf with an interesting modern shape. Here are several Swing Glass Shelves used in alternating positions to create a gentle wave.
Contemporary art glass shelving is also pretty easy on the budget too so even buying several shelves to create a grouping is still cheaper than most free-standing bookshelves.
