What is Bevelled Glass?

Bevelled glass is a type of decorative glass that has been cut and ground to create smooth, beveled edges. It is often used in homes and businesses as an attractive way to add privacy while still allowing natural light to enter the space.

Why is Glass Bevelled?

Bevelling glass creates a prism for which sunlight can be reflected and dispersed. This results in a beautiful, sparkly effect that can brighten up any room. Bevelled glass can also be toughened to make it more durable and resistant to chipping and breaking.

There are a few things to consider when choosing bevelled glass for your home. First, decide on the function of the glass bevel. Are you looking for privacy? Aesthetics? Or both? Next, consider the size of the bevel. Larger bevels will create more of a sparkle, while smaller bevels will be more subtle. Finally, think about the colour and tint of the bevelled glass. Clear bevelled glass will allow the most light into the room, while tinted bevelled glass can provide privacy and reduce glare.

It depends on the bevel. Larger bevels will create more of a prism and cause light to be reflected and dispersed, making it more difficult to see through. Smaller bevels will allow more light to pass through, making it easier to see through.

Bevelled glass can be toughened to make it more durable and resistant to chipping and breaking. However, it is not possible to bevel glass which has already gone through the tempering process.

Polished edge mirrors have smooth, flat edges while beveled edge mirrors have edges that are cut and ground to create a smooth, beveled surface. Beveled edge mirrors reflect light differently than polished edge mirrors, creating a sparkly effect.
