Acrylic Display Shelves - A Clear Choice

Acrylic display shelves are lightweight, attractive, and durable. While we're more used to seeing acrylic shelving in stores, there are many reasons to consider using them in your home. They're great for children's rooms, bathrooms and even as the focal point of a wall in your living room.

What is Acrylic?

It's actually a glassy thermoplastic polymethyl methacrylate (betcha' didn't know that!). It's also known by various trade names including Plexiglas, Perspex, Acrylite, Acrylplast, and Lucite. Acrylic is usually transparent, and can also be found in smoked or frosted finishes. It is available in a wide variety of colors. acrylic shelves

The Advantages of Acrylic Shelves

Acrylic shelves look and feel lighter and more modern than glass shelves. Acrylic is also eight times clearer than glass, and much less prone to breaking. And even if it does break, it doesn't shatter into dangerous shards like glass.

Acrylic shelves really come into their own when you add lighting. You can bring your display to life with low-power spotlights from almost any angle. This can be especially effective when using colored acrylic since the light picks up the color of the shelf through which it shines.
