Stained Glass Style Guide For Houston Homes

Stained glass is so ubiquitous on homes in the Houston area and all around Texas because it comes in so many different, still beautiful themes, styles, colors, and textures. Below are a few examples of the most common styles you will see on homes in the area.

Patterened: Patterned stained glass includes repeating shapes, sizes, and colors. This symmetrical style allows for lower production costs while offering detailed and beautiful designs.

Tiffany Style: Opalescent glass, with its “milky” or “streaked” appearance, is a characteristic of Tiffany-style stained glass. This style also incorporates various layers and thicknesses of glass within each composition

Contemporary: Contemporary stained glass features minimal patterns and in some cases geometric lines. Designers like Greene and Greene or Frank Llyod Wright fit into this category. This style often incorporates dramatic lead lines as part of the imagery

Traditional: Stained glass in the traditional style includes realistically painted figures, flowers or foliage and usually an intricate lead matrix.
