Stained Glass Windows For Your Houston Home

Houston is a great place to live right now. Business is booming and more people are taking advantage of the real estate market to buy and sell homes in the Houston area. Although, as you surely know, real estate markets can be volatile. Even though selling homes is easy now, it will not always be such a “sellers” market. As a prudent homeowner, looking to the future sale of your home, in a market that remains a mystery until that time, there are things you can do now, to ensure, when the time comes to sell your Houston home, you have features that add value to your home and attract potential buyers. One such feature that we have seen work wonders for those selling their homes, even in a buyers market, is stained glass windows added to entryway windows.

Stained Glass Window For Your Houston Entryway

As we mentioned, selling your Houston home may not be on your radar right now or if it is but realistically, you will probably one day look to sell it. In which case, stained glass windows on your home’s entryway are a great way to make sure it sells easily when the time comes. The reason for this is two-fold. First of all, adding stained glass to a house anywhere is an investment with a guaranteed return because stained glass is a desirable feature on a home. Since the windows are on the front of the house and visible from the street they add curb appeal which your real estate can calculate into the asking price of your home and is usually significantly higher than what you paid for the window itself. Secondly, houses with stained glass windows in their entryway are always a hit with potential buyers. This gorgeous and prominent feature is the first thing a buyer will see when they view your house and gives your home a leg up on other comparable homes. For these reasons, putting a stained glass window in your Houston home’s entryway now is a very real investment in your home’s future.

If you are interested in a stained glass entryway window or have questions on other types of stained glass windows for your Houston home, contact Scottish Stained Glass today. We are happy to answer any of your questions and schedule a free consultation.

Stained Glass In Fort Collins

Your home is your castle and a place where you want to feel comfortable, happy and secure. This is especially true for Fort Collins’s homeowners who take great pride in their homes, yards and overall appearances. The houses in Fort Collins are beautiful, many of them from the late Victorian era or early 20th century. The time periods from which these houses are from paired with the fastidious nature of Fort Collins’s homeowners make stained glass the perfect fit for houses in the area. While stained glass is great for any room in your home, the bathroom, in particular, is a fantastic place for it and here is why.

Why Stained Glass Is Perfect For Your Fort Collins Home’s Bathroom

The most obvious reason and the reason we hear most frequently for bathroom stained glass is, of course, privacy. Your business is, after all, none of anyone else’s business. Often times bathroom windows face your neighbor’s kitchen or living room window, meaning one slip-up closing the blinds or accidentally leaving the curtains open, ends up in an embarrassing show for both parties. Stained glass windows are the solution to this problem. The let you enjoy all the benefits of natural light in your bathroom, without letting in the eyes of the world around you. Additionally, our signature stained glass Aspen pattern is the perfect fit for the lovely Fort Collins’s landscape and proximity to nature. Another great pattern that fits the decidedly vintage look of Fort Collins is our Macintosh or Greene and Greene stained glass.
