Why Stained Glass Is The Perfect Modern Home Decor

Stained Glass From Past To Present

Stained glass has long been associated with church decor. It is natural then, for people to assume that such decor is ubiquitous only to cathedrals, churches, synagogues and even mosques. However, it is also strongly linked to the victorian or craftsman eras of design. Nearly anyone who owns a home built in either of those time periods likely has one or more stained glass window in their house presently. This is due to designers like Frank Lloyd Wright or Macintosh who, during the first half of the 20th century, began using stained glass in home decor. Its popularity has only risen since and is still in vogue today. At Stained Glass San Antonio, we are proud to continue on with the work of such icons as these, who had a deep and lasting impact on the stained glass still used today.

The Practicality Of Stained Glass

From first glance, it is fairly obvious that stained glass is art. but did you know it is called a “practical art”? This is because it is an overwhelmingly versatile medium which can be tailored to suit nearly any design style or taste. There are no restrictions as to which room stained glass can be used in either. Any room in a house: bathroom, kitchen, living room, the entryway is fair game. It is also good for unique applications like a fireplace screen, a stylish room divider or even on ceilings! The wide range of uses of stained glass, both practical and artistic is very impressive.

Some other, just as important, reasons why you might consider installing stained glass:
• Stained glass is a beautiful privacy option– especially useful for spaces like bathrooms or bedrooms.
• Stained glass can block an unattractive view like a vacant lot or a close neighbor
• Stained glass can express your personal tastes and act as a centerpiece for a design overhaul.

No matter where you put stained glass it will delight you, your family and guests for years to come, even taking center stage in any room it is in–and rightfully so. In fact, like we hear from many former clients, you will find reasons to fall in love with it all over again each and every day!
