Can I Get the Stained Glass Look in My Home?

Can I Get the Stained Glass Look in My Home?

You might have previously thought that stained-glass windows only work in churches and other religious buildings, but there are actually lots of ways you can incorporate them into your home in a stylish manner. It’s true that stained-glass was traditionally used in churches, as it was a way of telling stories from the Bible for those who were illiterate at the time. However, it is entirely possible to install a stained-glass window into your home. Here are some inspiring ideas…

 

Firstly, it’s worth noting that lots of companies allow you to have a strong input in the design of your stained-glass window. This means that if you have a family emblem or just an image that means a lot to you, you can really add a sense of personality to your home. It’s a great way to add an element of colour to your property, but you’ll need to keep them clean with a cloth and mild soapy water.

 

A stained-glass feature within your front door is a fantastic way to make a statement, as anyone passing by will be able to see it, without being able to peer into your home. This will likely help you stand out amongst all the other houses on the street. When the light shines through, it will create a beautiful display of colour in your entrance area, creating a warm welcome for your guests and for yourself whenever you return home from trip out. 

 

Many people opt to add a stained-glass window in their bathroom, as it adds an element of privacy while maintaining decent lighting during the day. Using stained-glass to boost privacy is far superior to curtains or blinds, as they tend to collect dust and can even become smelly. Another option is if you live in a period home containing original lattice-style windows, you could consider replacing the panes of glass with a stained-glass alternative.
