Decorative stained glass windows are thousands of years old and tend to be linked to churches and other religious buildings. Contemporary artists and interior designers now explore how they can be incorporated into people’s homes. Even in modern homes, it would seem that the juxtaposition of a traditional, grand window with avant-garde design elements works really well and creates a sense of personality.
No matter the size of a home, stained glass windows look fantastic; you don’t have to live in a huge, cathedral-like building. You can remove the glass panel from your front door and have a stained glass window incorporated instead.
Sunshine Through Coloured Glass
The sun will shine through the different coloured glass and glisten throughout your hallway, making the space seem bigger. If you get creative with the design, the window will actually look quite funky and modern.
Your hallway isn’t the only room in your house that you can install stained glass. It could be used to replace frosted glass in the bathroom, for example. Many people install stained glass windows for practical reasons, such as to hide an unsightly view or to improve privacy. Regardless of the reason, as long as you put your imagination to the test, you could end up with a really stunning feature in your home.
If you can’t decide, you can always consult a stained glass company to give you some advice. They can help you come up with a suitable design. The best thing about it is that no two windows are the same; you can make your own design suggestions and truly incorporate elements of your personality into your home.
