They are easy to clean and will brighten up your shower and bath area. The transparent shelves will also make organizing your accessories and bath essentials quick and easy.
Multifunctional Glass Walls in the Boardroom
These are elegant and wide panels of glass that make the boardroom real elegant and chic. But more than that, these glass walls can be paired with a white background and can be used as a white board during company meetings, symposiums and training sessions. The same white background and the glass wall pair can also be used as a screen projector during business functions.
Glass Plant Boxes and Pet Cages
Indoor plant boxes give the home a breath of fresh air, literally and figuratively. These glass plant boxes are available in various, shapes, sizes and colours. They can be mounted on the wall or allowed to hang on ceilings or balustrades for a more dramatic effect. They can also be used as centrepiece on dining tables or mini side tables.
