When thinking of stained glass windows, we normally think of grand churches and cathedrals, as well as other religious buildings. They date back thousands of years and were used to teach bible stories to church goers, who were often unable to read.
However, in recent years, contemporary artists and modern interior designers are finding different ways to incorporate stained glass windows in people’s homes. The concurrence of a traditional window with more modern elements of design actually works really well and allows home owners to feature an aspect of their own personality. Whether your home is small and cosy or spacious and grand, stained glass windows can look fantastic.
One popular way to incorporate stained glass in your home is swap it with the glass panel from your front door. In doing so, you’ll notice the sun shining through the different coloured panes and brighten up your hallway. This will also make the space feel bigger and if you get creative with the design you’ll be sure to have something funky and modern.
There are other places you can install stained glass, for example, in place of frosted glass in the bathroom. As well as decorative purposes, stained glass is also great for hiding unsightly views and is even a way to improve privacy. Whatever your reason for installing a stained glass window, you could end up with a beautiful feature that adds a touch of character to your home.
One of the best things about stained glass windows is that no two are the same, meaning you’ll give your home something very unique. If you’re interested in installing one, it would be wise to speak to a professional and get some advice. They will be able to help you come up with an appropriate design that you love, whether that be a traditional flower or a modern geometric pattern.
