Custom Stained Glass Then and Now

It is natural for people to think about churches when they hear the word stained glass. They make that association because stained glass is practically ubiquitous to cathedrals, churches, synagogues and even mosques. The next most common association is likely the victorian or craftsman eras of design. Likewise, anyone who owns a home built in either of those time periods probably has antique stained glass on one if not a few windows in their house already. The reason for this is because, during the mid to early 20th century, now famous designers like Frank Lloyd Wright and Macintosh inspired a connection in the minds of Americans between home decor and stained glass. This started a fortuitous “new” era of modern home stained glass that continues today. At Custom Stained Glass Houston we are proud to continue the work of design prodigies such as Frank Lloyd Wright and others who had such incredible impact on the evolution of stained glass into what we see today.

Stained Glass For Practical Reasons

The artistic value of stained glass is undeniable. However, did you know it is actually called a “practical art”? The reason is pretty clear to us–it is an extremely versatile medium which can be tailored to suit nearly any design style or taste. Especially in this day and age, stained glass can be used in nearly any room in the in a house (bathroom, kitchen, living room, entryway) and used functionally as a fireplace screen or a stylish room divider. It really is amazing how stained glass works well as both art forms and as a practical solution for privacy issues.
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.
