The Boozy Bar Shelf

For a classy upscale bar space, use custom rectangular glass shelves to display your favorite spirits and glassware. Not only will this create more storage space for your drinks, but it also adds design elements to your glass shelves. I recommend either using the shelves only for spirit storage or if you are feeling fancy, go ahead and add a couple rows of wine and cocktail glasses, or other elegant glassware as seen below. The trick to this is keeping everything in line, so consider where you’ll be placing things.

Plants Galore

Plants are always a beautiful design element for any space. Not only do they improve one's productivity and reduce stress, but they also freshen the air in your home. Though you could design your glass shelves using only plants, I recommend placing either stone or wooden structures alongside your plants for an earthy feel.

Style with Beauty Products 

These days, packaging for our skincare, perfume, and bath products are so cute you can use them to design the glass shelves in your bathroom. In addition, you can also purchase glass soap dispensers, and glass jars to hold q-tips, cotton balls, or makeup swabs to add to your shelf design.

Add A Brass Railing

Adding a brass railing to hold your glass shelves creates such a cute industrial look to your home. White and gold are two very trending colors at the moment, the addition of white tableware brings in an extra highlight to this year’s glass shelf design trend. Glass cups are also acceptable to add to this design as well as a few decorative plants as seen below.

Modern Bookshelf

Style your custom glass shelves with decorative books and geometric sculptures as seen below. Many of these decorative books are easy to find on Amazon, and they offer them in many different colors as well. The most important thing to consider is to keep a consistent color scheme. If you're having trouble creating a color scheme I recommend using this website:, where you can create the perfect palette or get inspired by thousands of beautiful color schemes.

Minimalist Chic 

In order to achieve a minimalist look make sure your shelf design contains sharp dark lines. This look is often accomplished using a black and white theme color scheme, but other calm tone colors can also be added as seen below. Black picture frames, and graphic 3D structures as well as classic white candles, complement these beautiful custom glass shelves  so well and are a must for this design.
