Are you considering stained glass windows for your home?
Stained glass windows are popular in churches but they can also make a beautiful addition to your home. They were popular in the Victorian Era because of their unique style and are still very popular today throughout the United States.
But how will stained windows make your home different?
Read on to learn 5 reasons to consider stained glass windows for homes!

1. Make a Statement

Stained glass windows make your home stand out in a unique way.
That's because they make a statement about your home design. Each window tells its own story, which makes them a talking point for you and your guests.
Visitors will be drawn to the colorful designs and be curious about what made you pick those over other options. Since each window tells its own story, this makes them a talking point for you and your guests.

2. Artwork on Windows

Stained glass is much more interesting than the windows found in an average home or office.
That's because they are often designed by artisans that bring your ideas to life. This makes your windows a piece of artwork and a great way for you and your family to personally express yourselves.
Stained glass is also full of colors, which can help them the centerpiece of your home's artwork. This allows you to forego purchasing other expensive pieces of art to accent your home.

3. Extra Privacy With Natural Light

Stained glass for windows gives your home extra privacy while also not sacrificing natural light.
With standard windows, there is no color which allows someone to see through them clearly. This can create safety and privacy concerns for you and your family.
Because of this, homeowners with standard windows often buy window treatments like blinds, shutters, or curtains.
Besides being expensive, these window treatments also prevent natural light from entering your home unless they are open.
Stained glass has enough color to block visibility while also being naturally translucent.

4. Increase Your Home Value

You can increase your home value by adding stained glass windows.
According to the Independent, you can add between 5 and 15 percent of value in your home by installing stained glass windows.
But, how?
Stained glass windows are built to withstand the test of time. This allows them to maintain the integrity of your home.
They also give your home period authenticity because they are indicative of the era when they were installed.

5. Be Creative

Your home is a reflection of you and your family's personality. Stained glass is a creative way to express yourself while also thinking outside the box.
For example, you can choose stained glass windows that are based on themes for each room in your home.
This way, no window in your home will be exactly the same.

5 Stunning Ways to Style Your Home With Stained Glass

5 Stunning Ways to Style Your Home With Stained Glass

Are you looking for a great way to add color to your home? Here are some incredible ways you can style your home using stained glass.

Every great home design has a creative mix of colors throughout the house. Whether you're going for a modern look or an art deco space, the right use of color is crucial.

You don't want to end up with a home design that falls flat because there isn't enough color to liven it up. On the other hand, you risk going over the top and missing the mark if the colors you pick out clash.
Luckily, there are tons of tricks to help you find a happy balance - and one of them is the use of stained glass. If you've never thought of hanging stained glass in your home, you need to seriously consider it.
Here are 5 ways you can style this beautiful piece of interior design.

1. On the Front Door

Lots of vintage doors already come with stained glass on them, and there's really no need to change that. You may want to clean the glass a bit or swap out some of the colors, but it would be a huge mistake to change the entire design of such a door.
If you have a modern front door with window panels or a more basic setup, it's easy to incorporate stained glass. You can also put stained glass around the door if there are small windows in the entryway.

2. In the Kitchen

The next place that stained glass would look absolutely beautiful is the kitchen. All you need is a small touch to transform the look and feel of the room.
Imagine putting a border of stained glass around the kitchen window, or by covering one the window panels entirely if you have a lot of windows in the room. There are all kinds of possibilities in this part of the house. Don't be afraid to play with different ideas until you're sure of the best choice.

3. To Brighten the Bathroom

Another space that could benefit from a touch of stained glass is the bathroom.
Whether you have a large master bathroom or a small guest bath, stained glass can create more comfort and beauty in this space. It can make a tiny half-bath look a lot bigger and it makes a big bathroom feel more welcoming, too.

4. On the Ceiling

Here's an interesting thought: if you have a sunroom with a glass ceiling or a few skylights somewhere in the house, you have a great canvas to incorporate stained glass onto.
This isn't to say you have to completely cover the glass on your ceiling. But, a nice border on the ceiling of the sunroom or a stained glass design on a skylight would be a nice touch. These are stunning upgrades that really make a statement.

5. As Wall Decor

If you can't find any openings or windows to place your stained glass, consider framing a piece of stained glass. It sounds a little silly at first, but it looks amazing once you actually do it.
All you need to do is find a place on your walls that needs a bit of color. You could hang a set of stained glass in the living room or put it in the entryway among family pictures and loving quotes.
Wherever you hang it, though, it's sure to be a lovely addition to your home.

Find the Perfect Stained Glass for Your Home

You still have to find the ideal piece of art once you figure out where you'd like to put your stained glass. This is a process of its own. There are all kinds of stained glass designs to choose from, and the right one can be difficult to choose.
It is out there, though. You just have to find it!
You can start your search by taking a moment to explore the stained glass we offer.
