Glass is a wonderful material for furniture because of its light reflecting properties. Every interior designer knows that mirrors reflect light around a room, making it appear more spacious, lighter and brighter. A similar effect can be achieved by using glass in your interior design – a glass table used for a small dining room will make the room appear bigger because it will reflect light, rather than absorb it.
Oftentimes we use bright colors as accent pieces, throw pillows, or even splashes of art on the walls. Occasionally we get up the nerve to paint a wall or even an entire room a bold brilliant color. But just as often we neglect to see the floor as a viable option to hold bright color. Bright colors bring energy and life to a room. Using a bright colored area rug will vitalize a living room and give a look to the space that people will remember.

You may find that the rug provides a base of an entire decorating scheme, or perhaps you already have a decorating theme that you love and a colored rug will finish off the room. In the room I remembered with the bright red rug, they built the decorations around the red rug. Patriotic decor hung on the walls and red pillows sat on darker couches. They even found a coordinating oversized red chair that they bought to go along with the rug. The brightly colored rug freed them to make other bold choices in a room that was not structurally special but because of the decorating theme became visually spectacular.
You can use both for setting down a wide variety of other things as well including family photos, the remote controllers for the TV and cable box, magazines, and you could even use the surface of the coffee one for playing board games with the family. Feeling like coffee table sets are something that you are interested in? If so, a nice way to look into the different options is by turning on your computer and browsing the different online stores on the Internet.
As glass furniture will make a room brighter, there is less need to shy away from darker colour schemes or heavy textured wallpaper. The glass pieces will balance the darker colours, giving you a contemporary look without sacrificing the appearance of space. The same goes for using vibrant colours, bright colours or even white colour schemes – the glass will balance out whichever colours you choose, co-ordinating with almost anything. It is for this reason that your furniture purchase will last you a long time, because even if your tastes in colour changes, your glass table will fit in with your new design.
