The new year is officially here, which means it’s time to reflect on the new interior design trends and options available for you and your living space. As design trends are moving past the farmhouse feel, placing new emphasis on the importance of repurposing for utility and environmental protection, we’re going to look at a trend to incorporate stained glass into windows, doors, and cabinets in apartments and houses.
Here are 5 reasons to add more stained glass to your home:
- Features That Pop:
Adding some color and extra light to your home is a great way to create a focal point in that specific room. Instead of investing in paint and wallpaper that makes the entire room colorful and perhaps, overwhelming, consider the value of stained glass cabinet door inserts and accents. It’s a feature that will “pop” and surely impress visitors, guests, and significant others.
- Personalization Potential:
Before stained glass is commissioned and specifically designed for a project, extensive personalization and customization is possible in each design. Stained glass is essentially a work of art, all its own, whether it’s colored or not. You can work with the designers to arrive at the stained glass door inserts and stained glass windows that you want before committing to the installation. Who doesn’t like a personalized touch in their living space?
- Durability & Longevity:
The glass used in stained glass windows and cabinetry follows a copper foil technique that was invented over 100-years ago. Using copper stripes and wrapping them around the glass, joining the ends and soldering the piece together to keep it from springing off of the glass, stained glass products are designed to stand the test of time. Unlike wood and other materials that can weather and decay, glass is highly resistant to temperature changes, moisture, and other natural elements.
- Timeless Elegance:
When we think of stained glass, we think of gorgeous and impressive cathedrals that are 600-years old, preserving history and culture in a way that is unmistakably unique. Although stained glass for the interior of your home doesn’t have to be Roman Gothic, there is something timeless and classic about using stained glass. Simply due to its history, it will add a layer of refined elegance to your home’s appearance.
- Room-By-Room Décor Options:
If you’re someone who doesn’t want to decide on just one theme for the entirety of your home or office, one easy way to add a “mood” to each individual room is with a stained glass accent piece. Whether it’s a stained glass door in your kitchen, stained glass windows in the bedroom, or stained glass cabinets above the sink, glass is an easy way to establish a new kind of interior design without rehabbing the entire room. That way, you can tell a story throughout your house, changing it up on a per-room basis.
New Year, New House
The start of a new year is a great time to redo the monotony in your home and incorporate something fresh to illuminate your space with beauty. If you’re tired of the appearance of your home or apartment, custom stained glass products are an easy way to add a touch of personalization.
