Are Floating Glass Shelves a Good Idea for My Business?


When searching for interior design inspiration for your business, you’ve probably seen floating glass shelves in many photos, and it’s no secret why!

Glass shelving is an easy way to spruce up any office space due to its versatility, timelessness, and more. Continue reading to learn more about why investing in custom glass shelves is an excellent idea for your business.

Floating Glass Shelves Make Decorating Easy

When designing your workspace, we always recommend installing a few floating glass shelves. Glass presents a modern and sleek look that illuminates any room and will help your business feel more professional. These shelves blend in well with almost any décor, are simple to clean and maintain, and are versatile with style aesthetic; plus, they’re timeless! Since glass isn’t a scene-stealer as a shelving material, you can switch out the decorations for years to come and never feel like your office is becoming outdated.

Glass Shelving is Safe and Strong

Some people might shy away from using glass shelves in their offices because of the fragile nature of glass; however, floating glass shelves are built to last. This type of glass is toughened to withstand the tests of time, and the brackets used for installation are specifically designed to add proper support. In addition, most floating shelves are made with tempered glass. The Consumer Product Safety Commission states that tempered glass is a technology designed to “fail safely.” This means that if the glass should rupture, it will break into small, fragmented pieces instead of dangerous, large shards.

Floating Glass Shelves Keep Things Organized

No matter the size of your office space, desktops tend to get cluttered. These glass shelves pose an excellent storage alternative that will keep everything you need in sight but off your work surface. All of your items will be within reach, but the space will feel more orderly and professional. Glass shelves are the ultimate storage solution for organizing books, photographs, pencil cups, and desktop adornments.

Glass Shelves Are Easy to Install

After you order your custom floating shelves, you’ll be thrilled with how easy they are to install. All you’ll need are a few tools that most people have on hand- a tape measure, painter’s tape, and a level. Use the tape measure and level to find the exact spots where you want to place the anchors, and then use the painter’s tape to mark the placement. It’s also a good idea to invest in a stud finder to ensure that your shelves are as secure as possible. And if you’d rather have a glass installation expert take over the process, Murray Glass is here for you!
