People are loving antiqued mirrors, which are regular silver mirrors designed to look aged and weathered. The most popular aging process involves a glass-coloring treatment that stains a pattern into the glass, instilling various colors and textures inside it, varying its perceived depth. These treatments produce unique colors and stippled patterns that make each piece a little different. Antiqued mirrors work well as accent pieces in bathrooms and bar back splashes, and give a transitional look to any space.
Another creative trend we are seeing in glass is back-painting—coating one side of a glass pane like a mirror, but using one solid color instead of the normal reflective silver. Many homeowners are using them as dry erase boards, or huge, seamless pieces that cover an entire wall in kitchens, bathrooms, and bar back splashes.
