Custom Stained Glass For The Perfect Custom Built Home

Having a home custom designed and made for you is a very exciting time!  Sure, there are a lot of decisions to make but each one gets you closer to the beautiful home you always dreamed of!  When it comes to choosing some of the interior architectural elements, nothing could be more ubiquitous, gorgeous and functional than something like stained glass either!   It is a fantastic way to add privacy to the parts of your home that need it without sacrificing that one-of-a-kind feel. In fact, stained glass is incredibly customizable and goes great in new or modern homes too.  Not only that but, it is always incredible elegant, no matter where you decide to have it installed. Below are the most popular places we install stained glass on custom homes for maximum impact and effortless style.

Best Areas For Stained Glass In Custom Built Homes

Bathroom Stained Glass:  Windows on bathrooms, while essential, can turn out to be quite tricky.  While you want the most sunlight possible, large windows often end up letting in both sunlight and the prying eyes of the world.  Stained glass in the bathroom of your custom built home is the perfect way to let in all the natural light you crave without sacrificing privacy, in a place where you really need it.

Entryway Stained Glass:  The entryway of your home is the first thing that people will see when they come to your newly built haven–why not start those visiting your home off in style with gorgeous stained glass on your sidelights and/or transom windows?  Not only will it impress guests coming into your home, it will make a bold statement from the outside too, for those just passing on.

Kitchen Stained Glass:  When you have a custom home built, sometimes it is hard to think far enough outside the box to get something really unique.  One way to do this is to work with stained glass in areas it is perfect for but infrequently seen! One of these areas is the kitchen and stained glass is just perfect to use on cabinets to really pack a design punch!  The great part about stained glass on kitchen cabinets is, it gives enough coverage to the odds and ends in your kitchen cabinets to obscure clutter, but enough transparency to mimic the open cabinet feel! And, since stained glass is 100% customizable, it allows for you to really add your own touch to your custom kitchen area.

Posted May 3rd, 2018 by ssgadmin

Why Stained Glass Is Durable Enough For Your Denver Home

If you are like many homeowners in the Denver area, you are probably doing upgrades on your home and plan to continue doing so for quite some time, since buying a home in Denver right now is severely cost prohibitive.  You are likely considering many different home improvements and may have even considered one that is in our wheelhouse–stained glass windows. But, again, if you are like many people you may have nixed the idea thinking that stained glass is an expensive, luxury that is easily broken.   We are here to tell you, nothing could be further from the truth and to set the record straight on stained glass myths such as these.

3 Common Misconceptions About Stained Glass

Stained Glass Breaks Easily:  Stained glass, as you may not know, is just as strong as regular glass.  The composition is nearly identical to the glass you have in your windows right now in fact.  Leaded stained glass, as it were, in some ways is more durable than a normal window because often times breakage occurs in just one panel, meaning you don’t need to replace the whole window–just one panel.  The issue with stained glass windows is, they are typically a little more expensive to replace when broken and take more time since they are custom made. However, the beauty and potential value of these windows far outweigh the risk of breakage.

Stained Glass Is Very Expensive: Per square foot, it is definitely true that stained glass is more expensive than regular glass windows.  However, you also pay for what you get, meaning, these windows add more character privacy lasting charm than a plain glass window. Additionally, when the time comes to sell, the stained glass window will typically add more than 4 times its original value to the selling price of your Denver home.

Stained Glass Is Too Fancy For Regular Homes:  It is true stained glass used to be only something for wealthier families homes.  However, those days are long gone. In today’s modern world, you can get a lovely stained glass window or stained glass window panel installed in your home for a price point that is affordable to any average middle-family.  They are beautiful and well worth a small investment in your home.
