Ideas For Stained Glass
Several years back, stained glass was strictly used in churches. Many individuals can think of sitting in a church jaw dropped at the detail of the glass and wondering just how it happened. But, today, stained glass can be used in many different ways. In fact, you can add it to your dcor to give your house or business an appeal like none other. How can you add stained glass to your home? Here are some ideas. Idea 1: Windows! It makes smart sense to add stained glass to your windows. When the light beams in, the room is filled with a wide range of colors and looks. And, you can use it in virtually any design that you would like. Add it to your front window for a unique and lavish decorative feature in your house.

Idea 2: Doors. Many doors have that glass part of them that is hard to see through. This glass is there for security so that people can not see into the home. But, replacing it with stained glass will give you that same beauty but will provide a gorgeous display on the front entrance to you home.

Idea 3: Mirrors. For those that have large sized mirrors within their house, including those that are placed on an entire wall, stained glass can be incorporated on top of it to give an astonishing effect.

Idea 4: Vases and Bowls. An interesting way to add a little color and light into your house is to use a vase that features stained glass. It provides hundreds of color options, styles galore and even more interesting things to talk about within your home. Decorative bowls for candy are also top here.

Idea 5: Your Coffee Table. When you have guests visit your residence, do you allow them to see a dull and boring coffee table? Add a stained glass top to it and youll definitely have something to talk about.

Idea 6: Lamps and Lighting. One of the beauties of stained glass is the light that it allows through. The light is modified by the colors that you have selected and can add a lavish tone to it. For a subtle or a dramatic look, ask for stained glass lights.

Idea 7: Cabinet doors. A fantastic way to add a dcor factor to a kitchen or to your television cabinet is for the doors to them to be made of stained glass. This will give you a beautiful look that is completely original. Use the colors that fit your needs and tastes, add more of those colors throughout the kitchen and get a beautiful look well worth the investment.

Adding stained glass to your home is the proper way to spice things up. You choose the color scheme, the look and the design and you reap the rewards of beauty that is unlike anything else. And, when the sun shines on your stained glass, it will be nothing short of astounding.
