Using glass in interior decorating

Few materials are more versatile in decorating than glass. It’s natural to think of glass in terms of windows. After all, that’s where we see glass most often – regardless of whether we’re looking at commercial or residential spaces.

Glass is much more versatile than that, though. Because it comes in so many thicknesses and colors, and can be cut or shaped into virtually any form, glass is a natural choice for many interior decorating plans. Whether you’re rehabbing a piece of furniture, laminating a wall or creating a room divider, the versatility of glass will soon make it your go-to material.

As a laminate, glass can be added to furniture and walls easily. Depending upon the application, a thin glass can be a great laminate for a piece of furniture that has been well used, or that just needs a visual update.

Glass can be cut to virtually any size, so laminating a table, cabinet or even your kitchen cupboards can be a quick-fix project. The result can be a great, classic chic Art Deco look. Glass is easy to cut and can be applied safely and securely with silicone adhesive.

You can also paint the glass virtually any color of the rainbow, thanks to Glassprimer™ glass paint. Glassprimer™ glass paint is specially engineered to bond permanently with the surface of the glass. Backpainted glass is easy to create and will last indefinitely. In kitchen applications, glass is ideal because it is impervious and can be cleaned and sterilized easily.

If you want to be really adventurous, you can laminate an entire wall surface with thin glass. As in the kitchen, glass can lend the same sense of elegance to virtually any room. Backpainted glass as a laminate allows you to create a simple, yet sophisticated surface. Whether you’re adding a splash of color or covering imperfections in the wall surface, glass can help you transform a room quickly and easily. Glassprimer™ glass paint is also inexpensive. You can provide complete coverage on glass for about $1 per square foot.

Glassprimer™ glass paint is a specialized glass coating that bonds permanently to glass surfaces. GlassPrimer also makes a glass surface molecular activator that is designed to work with UV-inkjet glass printing processes. Glassprimer™ glass paint can be used in both interior and exterior applications and can help reduce solar heat gain in some applications.
