Modern Examples of Stained Glass in KC Homes

Stained Glass Windows For The Modern Kansas City Home

Stained glass windows are an age-old design element that adorn the windows of churches, estates, and castles, as well as homes. They are luxurious and beautiful and their depictions, in cathedrals or historical settings, is often religious iconography that makes them especially valuable parts of our past. However, stained glass can be and is a very modern design element that is as particularly relevant to art and even pop culture. A revolution in stained glass expression is going on today, driven by modern architects and consumers, making modern free-form, abstract and geometric stained glass a much sought-after addition to homes and commercial buildings here in Kansas City and all over the United States. These windows are the picture of modern design and style and not at all cost-prohibitive for the everyday homeowner. What’s more, stained glass is something that architects are including in new, modern commercial designs as well. This is because stained glass is far more than biblical depictions and flowers. It enhances decor, adds color and sometimes, as a matter of practicality, is used for privacy. Read on to find out how stained glass windows are evolving and why they may be perfect for your Kansas City home.

Stained Glass Today Vs The Past

While the general concept of stained glass has not changed much in the last 100s of years, the look of stained glass today is very different–and that is a good thing. Leading is still used, as are colors and textures but the depictions, or lack thereof, on the glass make it very different. Whereas religious iconography or floral patterns were the most popular in the past, today we are seeing more geometric patterns, abstract art, and even freeform designs. Also, stained glass windows are being used in places that simply would not have been considered before. Cabinet doors, room dividers, lobbies of commercial spaces and even skylights. This is in large part due to the universal availability of stained glass at this point in history but can be attributed to a growing consumer demand and acceptance of stained glass as art. Modern architects definitely have stained glass windows in their bag of tricks and use it profusely. Happily, the results could not be more stunning like the window below.

As you can see this is not your grandfather’s stained glass, as the saying goes. Today’s stained glass is a lovely combination of old world techniques and new world styles which brought to fruition a new generation of artistic stained glass that is more popular than ever.
