Why Glass Table Tops?




We have the capability to custom cut, bevel, polish and temper your glass. This ensures a perfectly customized fit, gives you the opportunity to choose the glass type you want, and gets it delivered to you in record time for home and office needs.
 Whether it's for a glass table top replacement, glass table top cover or a table design of your own, the steps for customizing your glass table top are the same. Our glass table tops are custom manufactured, which means that all pieces can be to your specification. 


Protect your furniture from nicks, scratches, and other possible damage.
Refresh older pieces with a less permanent option, as compared to stains or paint.
Glass is beautiful; glass top is an excellent way to add shine to an otherwise dull item.
Elevate the impact of wood tables or dressers while protecting these investments from scratches, glass rings, sun damage and scuffs.

Order a tabletop to complete a table, nightstand or even a plant stand.
Renew old glass table inserts with a glass table replacement; outdoor tables are especially vulnerable to damage and weathering.

Show the beauty of your valuable furniture while protecting it
Protect your table or other furniture with a glass table top. Custom-made protective glass covers guards your furniture against scratches, spills and accidental heat sources. 
Benefits of Table Cover




There are many benefits in using glass as a cover to protect your valuable furniture:

Easy to clean and hygienic.
Does not scratch or get damaged easily.
The transparent nature of glass helps show the beauty of your valuable furniture.
Use ultra clear or low Iron glass for more transparency.
Use clear shield to make it even easier to keep your glass cover clean.
No more table cloth or covers to wash.
No more worries about stubborn stains.
Always custom made for a perfect fit
What You Need to Know About Glass Table Covers?
When used as a cover, thinner glass such as 1/4" is used most.

There is normally no need to temper the glass as there is ample support provided by the furniture.

The most common finish is a smooth polish but a decorative beveled edge can be used as well.

The corners of the glass are normally slightly rounded but the exact shape of the table can also be duplicated.

Send us a picture of the table and/ or a paper template for a precise fabrication.
Choose glass type or color according to your preference.

What Is The Difference Between Glass Table Tops And Glass Table Covers?
The main difference is glass thickness.

A thick glass table top can be used both as a protective glass table cover on existing furniture, and as the whole glass surface of a table on an existing pedestal.
It is not recommended to use a thin glass table cover as the whole surface of a glass table top.

Mirror Install – Cut Out For It?







If you want to save money on a new bathroom mirror you might consider installing it yourself. Depending on the size of the mirror, this can be done with relative ease, although I’d recommend finding yourself a buddy to lend a hand.





Mirror Size
The first step is figuring out what size mirror you want. Mirror mounted to a wall is nearly always ¼” in thickness, but you’ll need to figure out your dimensions. Currently, there is not one sole discernible trend in mirrors. Check out Pinterest or Houzz and you’ll find a wide variety of mirror styles. The common thread between the trendy mirrors featured on these sites is that they are somewhat unconventional. In the past few years, designers have taken a liking to the long, narrow, horizontally aligned mirror that hangs quite a ways off the vanity. There has also been a lot of interest in mirrors on standoffs, mirrors backlit by LEDs, and round mirrors, both small enough that they fit little more than a face and large enough that they seem like they might continue to grow and engulf the entire bathroom. That said, many homeowners still opt for the classic, practical, rectangular mirror set upon the vanity. If the mirror is fitting tight between two walls, I’d recommend subtracting ¼ – ½” from the available width, otherwise you’ll most likely end up with some battle wounds along the adjacent walls. Stock heights for mirror are typically 42, 48, and 72”, but a glass and mirror shop can cut a mirror to any custom size. The last thing to consider when thinking about mirror size is whether or not there are any impediments that exist in your home that might prevent you from getting a mirror your desired size into the bathroom and in place – this includes, medicine cabinets, outlet plates, tight turns, etc. Don’t give up hope just because obstacles exist! Spend some time thinking about it and you’re likely to come up with a solution that will get your mirror where it needs to be.

Hanging Your Mirror
Next, you’ll have to think about how you want the mirror mounted. The most common mechanical fastener is the mirror clip. You’ve probably looked at countless mirrors supported by clips in your life and never took notice of them. That means they’re doing their job! Clips are there to support while being visually unobtrusive. The next most common application would be to install the mirror into j-bar. This is a continuous piece of j-shaped (duh) metal that runs along the top and bottom of a mirror. When going to the ceiling with the mirror, j-bar is your only option since clips need extra space at the top, so they can be slid down over the mirror to secure it. The top channel of j-bar is slightly deeper than the bottom channel so the mirror can slip up into the top metal and then drop back down to sit it in place. If you’re purchasing a pattern mirror, like an oval or the mirrors picture below, from a glass shop, you’ll want to consider a mirror hanger, a strong metal hanger that adheres to the mirror’s backside. These are easy to apply and hang. I wouldn’t recommend DIYing a stand-off mirror unless you’re certain you’re up for the challenge.

The type of hardware you use will affect what size mirror you order and where you’ll need to drill holes to mount your hardware. Mirror going into clips should be cut at the exact height you want off the vanity, backsplash, etc., but the holes for your top clips need to be drilled 3/8” down from where the top of the mirror will end up. To figure out the cut height of the mirror that will be installed using j-bar, you’ll need to subtract 9/16” from the height at which you want the top channel mounted. This allows the extra room to slide the mirror up into the channel.

Mirrors Make an Unexpected Appearance in the Kitchen

Mirrors are a popular accessory for nearly every room of the house, so why not the kitchen as well? Thoughtful and strategic placement of mirrors is an easy way to reflect available light, visually opening up a room to make it look more spacious. 

Above the stove. Mirrors emphasize the details and colors of items caught in their reflection. What’s reflected in this kitchen is a striking collection of copper pans hanging from a pot rack.

Tip: Strategically hang mirrors so that they reflect an appealing view.

According to feng shui principles, mirrors symbolize water, which clashes with fire, and therefore should hang above a stove only to allow cooks to see what’s behind them. Aside from this concern, lining an expanse behind the stove can be extremely effective in giving the illusion of a much larger space. In this example, the mirror’s antiqued appearance was achieved by distressing.

Mirrors: 5 Tips To Create Space in a Small Room





Mirrors are a wonderful decorating tool for your home.

They add natural light to a dark room, lengthen walls, add height to ceilings, and make spaces appear larger. If you have a small space in your home, try using mirrors to make it feel more spacious. Check out these five tips for using mirrors to add the illusion of space in your home:




1. Go with groups. Hanging mirrors in groups is a great way to get the effect of a larger mirror without the price tag. The trick with grouping mirrors is to buy mirrors of different sizes and shapes, but with the same (or very similar) frames-this keeps your collection looking organized rather than cluttered and messy. Grouped mirrors also make an interesting focal point in any room, especially an entry area.

2. Work with windows. Have a small room with a window? Hang a large mirror on the wall opposite your window. This technique reflects the outdoor view of the window, almost making it appear as if the room has another window. The room will be flooded with more natural light, creating a feeling of more space.

3. Go big. If you are looking for a dramatic way to create space and make your ceilings feel higher, CUSTOM ANTIQUE MIRROR suggests using a mirror that is at least three-quarters the height of your ceiling. There is no need to try to hang such a heavy mirror - leaning it against the wall and securing it that way works well.

4. Try one behind the stove. A small kitchen will open up with a mirror placed on the wall behind your stovetop. We spend so much time in our kitchens standing in front of the stove, having a mirror in this spot will automatically make the room feel larger, and add tons of light to a normally dark wall.

5. Turn it. Lengthen a short wall by turning a long, skinny mirror on its side. Hang it on the wall horizontally, and you'll be amazed by how much longer the room appears.



Mirrors are a fantastic solution for small, dark rooms. They make a room appear more spacious and add natural light, both of which open up your home. Please feel free to contact us for more information about using mirrors to make your small rooms feel larger.

What Makes a Mirror a Mirror?





We take them for granted, but there is more to mirrors than meets the eye. Here’s why Custom Antique Mirror loves mirrors, and you should too!

History of Mirrors

A mirror is typically made of glass with a flat or curvy surface, and has a reflective covering over it. Mirrors aren’t only for appearance; they are also used in many technological and scientific components.
Before mirrors were manufactured, pools of water were often used to see a reflection. Mirrors date back to completely raw products, as polished stones, metals and black volcanic glass obsidian were used for this purpose.  

How Mirrors Are Made

There’s just a few components needed to make a mirror, including pure silver nitrate, distilled water and ammonia. Some differences occur during the production of commercial mirrors.
First, a small amount of silver nitrate is dissolved in distilled water, with the addition of diluted ammonia until the mixture visibly changes. A different mixture of Rochelle salts and silver nitrate is boiled and filtered. The mixtures are then poured onto a properly heated piece of glass and ready to dry. To preserve the silver, a coat of paint is often added to the back of the glass.

Benefits of Mirrors

Mirrors serve many different purposes, and that’s why we think they are so great! Here are some reasons why mirrors should be incorporated into your home or business:
  • Mirrors make the room appear larger.
  • Mirrors make a statement. The styles, sizes and designs are extensive, which makes it easy to incorporate into just about any space.
  • Mirrors attract more lighting from surrounding windows. The light reflects off of the mirror with brightens the rest of the room.
  • Mirrors near the door or hallway are helpful when rushing out the door. If you have a meeting or heading to lunch, it can’t hurt to make sure you’re looking your best!


Custom Mirrors

Custom Antique Mirror professionals have years of experience when it comes to custom glass solutions! Our experts can cut just about any size and shape of glass you need. Mirrored walls, backsplashes and statement mirrors are popular items our customers enjoy.

Clear Wire Glass


Anyone involved in even the simplest restoration, often finds themselves in search of original vintage glass perhaps for a broken glass door panel, or even an upgrade to a farmhouse chic look for their kitchen cabinetry and finds themselves searching for sources of this hard to find commodity. 

Olde Good Things has been reclaiming  wire glass for years from many old factories and buildings and has become a reliable source for various styles of this unique architectural element.




Reclaimed Clear Wire Glass




Rescued from the dark depths of famous, industrial sites throughout the United States, our vintage  wire glass has character and history.


With durability that doubles in comparison to regular glass,  wire glass, also known as safety glass, is also shatterproof, making it perfect for those notorious cabinet slammers in your house.



Wire glass works especially well when used for wine cabinets and china cabinets. 
This glass intercepts over 99% of ultraviolet rays, protecting wine from rancidity and family heirlooms and pictures from discoloration caused by exposure to direct sunlight.


From a thesis entitled: 

WIRE GLASS: HISTORY OF TECHNOLOGY & DEVELOPMENT by KONSTANDENA KEFALLINOS


“The Industrial Revolution was a period of amazing evolution in the history of glass manufacture.  Plate glass technology allowed for new design and building construction concepts, but this was an imperfect technology.

 As the brilliant minds of the Revolution struggled to grapple with the obstacles posed by plate glass, wire glass was eventually developed. 
This new glass type spread across the United States in subsequent years, and eventually wire glass was associated with safety given its fire retardant and shatterproof qualities.  
Wire glass was technically incredibly difficult to produce, especially in mass production, and although inventors experimented with various treatments and patterns, wire glass remained and was comparatively expensive (though people generally believed the safety benefits outweighed the costs). Wire glass fell into disfavor during the World Wars as it was replaced by newer types of glass that were more economical, but recent trends have sparked renewed interest in the use and hence preservation of wire glass. 
Original methods of wire glass manufacture using early wire netting patterns no longer exist…”



Thus we have made it one of the top salvage priorities to reclaim this glass and make it available once again for public use.

Antique Mirror Glass




Antique mirror glass has been an effective weapon in the interior designer’s arsenal for years now, and it shows no signs of becoming unfashionable. A contrast to some of the clean cut modern designs you’ll see in recent architecture and home magazines, these decorative frames and distressed mirror panels can add a rustic feel to any room.


Antique mirror glass is a vintage style of mirror that often looks rusty or decaying. They’re great for adding that homespun feel to an office, bar or restaurant and their versatility means they can be used as a feature piece on a wall, cut into tiles or even just as a more conventional mirror.






Antiqued mirror tiles are incredibly versatile and as a result of this, there isn’t just one place where they should be used exclusively. In our experience, an antique mirror backsplash looks great in kitchens and bathrooms, but they can also look fitting in a hallway or stairwell. Similar to any other piece of furniture, the surrounding environment will have a major impact on the success of the mirror, desk, chair; whatever item it is you wish to add.



It would be great to hear your thoughts on the matter and we’d be more than happy to answer any questions you have. We can be reached on our email address and also on (646) 781-7979.

Shower Glass Doors: Stay in Control and Get the Bathroom of Your Dreams

Is a bathroom remodel on your list of 2018 spring renovations?

 According to various cost vs. value reports, it is common for homeowners to boost the resale value of their homes by 60% or more by completing bathroom remodels and bathroom additions.
 So, you’re obviously on the right track. However, in order to stay there it's best to take 2018 bathroom trends into account as well. They indicate that shower glass doors are really hot right now.


Why are shower glass doors hot this year? 
For starters, they work perfectly in infinity bath schemes. Infinity bath schemes tend to make use of glass doors, overflowing bath tubs and specialty lighting to give the illusion of an endless, serene, watery escape. Glass shower doors also fit in with other trends. Among them are salvaged décor, expanded shower spas, Japanese soaking tubs, high-tech AV systems, seated and steam shower setups.






We particularly like the high-tech shower trend. It makes it possible to include HD televisions, built-in stereos, side-tub refrigeration, chromatherapy and smart water control systems and other cool amenities into personal care experiences. However, to truly have a high-tech bathroom, it is important to find a company willing and able to customize glass enclosures. At CUSTOM ANTIQUE MIRROR NEW YORK, we can do that and more.





Our team can fabricate glass shower doors, medicine cabinet mirrors or glass, glass countertops, glass shelving, glass cabinetry and stylish backsplashes. Consequently, when it comes to glass and mirrors, you’ll be able to control every detail of your bathroom model or addition. We can work from photos of your favorite design elements or sketches that you may have created to help plan your bathroom’s new look. Plus, we can show you our gallery of previous bathroom projects that may just spark a new idea or two for you.

To learn more about having shower glass doors and other items customized for your upcoming remodel or addition, please contact us today

Glass wall panelling


No end of different ideas: printed glass elements bring colour and pictures to bathrooms and toilets. The dimensions up to 1 500 x 3 000 mm mean that there are plenty of design alternatives. The elements can be attached directly to old tiles and brickwork. Quickly, cleanly and almost invisibly – thanks to the patented profile system. Ideal for any renovation or modernisation project. The perfect choice when a fast solution is needed for new building projects.


The large surfaces are hygienic and easy to clean. The screen printing is UV-resistant, insensitive to solvents and abrasion-resistant to DIN standards. There is a choice of any colour. Or you bring us the motif you would like – as a slide, a photo or a digital file. We turn it into photorealistic pictures in your bathroom, guest toilet, kitchen or wherever you want your ideas implemented. Mirrors, lights, back lighting combine harmoniously with WALL GLASS.

STRUCTURAL GLASS BRIDGESS

Frameless Glass Bridges

Structural walk on glass panels can be spanned across open space to create a minimal, transparent glass bridge. These structural glass bridges can be supported by minimal steel supports or high specification structural glass beams to allow these glass constructions to span large distances.

Frameless glass balustrades can be integrated into the glass bridge construction with minimal detailing to maintain the clear glass bridge construction.
If glass beams are used in the support of the glass bridge the laminated glass panels can be elongated upwards to act as the balustrade to the bridge achieving a clear finish with no visible fixings

Low Iron Glass can be used to minimise the ‘greening’ effect that can occur when installing thick layers of glass as would be used on a high specification structural glass assembly such as a glass bridge.



Glass Bridge Design

The surfaces of these walk on glass surfaces can be finished with various anti-slip coatings to create a safer structural glass assembly which is especially useful on larger external glass bridges.

Anti-slip resistance can be achieved through the use of a sandblasted finish to the external surface of the glass bridge. This will add anti-slip and will also create a translucent glass finish perfect for maintaining privacy through the walk on glass surface.

Other anti-slip finishes can be applied that maintain transparency through the structural glass installation if required.
These include specialised ceramic printing techniques to the external surface of the glass or a textured glass surface.

What is a Frameless Glass Pool Fence?
A frameless glass pool fence uses stainless steel spigots for support. Glass panels are held in place to create a transparent barrier around your pool area.

With the steel spigots creating a stable base, this allows for connected fencing made entirely of glass more durable than standard window glass.
These panels create a seamless outdoor fence that provides a stunning view of your pool area, as well as the functionality of a standard fence.

Glass Balustrades



Glass Balustrades 



To keep up with modern interior design styles, glass balustrades are an excellent way of adding elegance and light to any home or business. 


At Artlook Glass, we provide high quality glass balustrades for homes and businesses, offering a prestigious option for a balcony, staircase or landing.

Made from either stainless steel or anodized coating, balustrades offer lots of tones and hues to compliment any domestic or commercial surroundings, while at the same time, creating a sense of unlimited space.



We have a number of options to choose from, including:
  • A variety of balustrade glass forms and variations (such as toughened)
  • A number of frame options (such as mini post, infill and frameless glass balustrades)








Glass balustrades for stairs are very popular in family homes as they look great and increase child safety. Aside from the safety element on staircases, porches and balconies, balustrades are also successfully employed as room separators and connectors of areas, perhaps from your balcony to your hall for example.



All those great features, added safety and don't forget that our glass balustrades can be cleaned easily with the help of detergent solution and muslin cloth making them ideal for maintenance as well. 

So, about glass balustrades, what's not to love?
