Simple Fix: Brightening a Space Using Mercury Glass

What is a simple way to brighten a mantel or shelf? Add a mercury glass piece. From bottles to candle holders to bowls, there are so many options for mercury glass that will help you add height, dimension, and brightness to a dark spot in your home.

What is mercury glass? Simply put, it’s a metallic, antique-looking glass piece. Typically, you’ll see a lot of mercury glass when perusing the decor aisles during the holidays. However, I love the idea of using mercury glass throughout the year. The shine that it has will give you a chance to add glam to any space, all while embracing the antique look.

The imperfections of mercury glass help capture the light in a room and bounce it back into the room in all sorts of angles. And, because there are so many options available, you are bound to find the perfect piece to add a bit of antique glam to any dark space in your home.
The next time you’re at the store or shopping online, be sure to keep an eye out for mercury glass pieces in the following departments:
  • Candleholders
  • Lighting (both hanging fixtures and lamps)
  • Vases
