Glass Wall Decor
The 5 Best Uses Of Mosaic Glass Wall Décor
The mosaic glass wall decor genre is an art form which uses small pieces of materials placed together to create a unified whole. Mosaic glass and metal art are different than traditional tile mosaics, as the smaller pieces are crafted from glass and metal, held together with additional metals, fused glass, and leading. And, unlike tile mosaics, metal and glass are naturally reflective, and play with the available light. Consider placing your artwork in a location with ample or changing light.
One option is to replace the shades or drapes on a single pane French door. Often, drapes don’t work well on a door, and empty glass won’t work for privacy. A metal and glass wall decor piece can be hung in the window using glass hanging hardware. The panel will block unwanted views from the outside and add an ever-changing light display to your room.
Another drape replacement option is to hang a mosaic as you would a valence in a smaller kitchen or bathroom window. By placing the artwork across the top of the window, the view is unobstructed while the effect of the sunlight on the metal and glass design is maximized. A café curtain can be added in a complementary color, or drape panels could be hung along the sides to accent the color palette.
Transom windows are traditionally above doors to allow more light in the space. Why not play off of this architectural detail by mounting a mosaic above an existing door or within an interior archway? Passageways between the kitchen and dining room can be enhanced with a colorful mosaic along the top. A space that is often left empty can instead become a focal point. Metal and glass sculpture is particularly well suited to environments that would damage canvas or paper artwork.
Consider the kitchen backsplash. Anything flammable would be utterly unwise, and installed tile mosaics are expensive and permanent. Custom modern wall art and decor will protect the wall space just as well as ceramic, but offer a one-of-a-kind style. Imagine how the beautiful designs will take your kitchen to the next level!
The bathroom could also benefit from a water-resistant metal and glass mosaic. The mirrored surface and directional lighting often found in a bathroom will enhance the reflective qualities of the mosaic. A candlelit soak in the bath will take on warm tones as the metal and glass enrich the space.
One additional benefit of a metal and glass mosaic art piece is its ability to be moved and removed as the owner chooses. An art piece may be mounted in a kitchen window during the winter months to take advantage of late afternoon soon, and then moved to a bathroom wall during the summer months.
Mosaics can be traded from one doorway to another to keep the room interesting. Installed tile mosaics are permanent, but glass and metal sculptures can be rotated throughout the house to bring joy wherever they are placed.
