The Perfect Time For Stained Glass In Your Denver Home Is Now
It is no secret that the real estate market in Denver, Colorado is booming right now! If you are trying to find a house to buy that is not such a good thing. But, if you are looking to stay in your home or sell it, there could not be a better time for your state of affairs. Because of this incredible market for homeowners and sellers, we at Denver Stained Glass are convinced, and apparently, our influx of new customers are too, that this is the absolute perfect time to put stained glass windows on your Denver home. Why? Well, the reasons are clear and we at Denver Stained Glass hope that you will take advantage of this critical and profitable time for home ownership in Denver.
Why Stained Glass, Why Now?
Higher ROI/Resale Value: Stained Glass for homes right out of the gate, regardless of real estate conditions has a pretty impressive ROI. Typically people see a 10X return on stained glass window spending meaning, for instance, a three hundred dollar ($300) piece of stained glass could increase the market value by $3,000. In a market like Denver, your return is sure to be much higher.
Increased Home Perceived Value: Just as stained glass increases the actual value of your home, it also increases the perceived value, meaning when people walk into your home the value they believe your home to have, is influenced by the stained glass they see. This is a fantastic tool for selling your home for the highest price possible if you are looking to sell. Even if you are not, it’s still a jaw dropping feature for guests who visit your home.
Upgrade Your Home Instead Of Move: Right now, even though home prices are at an all time high, it is very difficult for those who own homes in Denver to actually move. This is because even when you sell your current home for far more than you paid, you still need to find a place in a price range that doesn’t eat up all your profits. This is why people are opting to stay in their home and simply upgrade what they have to fit their needs. Putting in some custom stained glass windows is a great way to get the home of your dreams without moving! And as mentioned above, you are increasing the value significantly anyway with stained glass so-i-it is a win-win.
If we have you as convinced as we are that right now is the time to put stained glass windows on your Denver home, contact us today and let’s get you going on the custom stained glass windows and the home of your dreams!
Stained Glass Windows As Art
Often times when people think about stained glass they associate it with churches right off the bat–and that makes sense since stained glass is practically ubiquitous to cathedrals, churches, synagogues and even mosques. Likely, stained glass is next most associated, in people’s minds with the victorian or craftsman eras of design. Anyone who owns a home built in either of those eras in fact probably has antique stained glass somewhere in their house already. This is in large part due to the fact that, during the mid to early 20th century designers like Frank Lloyd Wright and Greene and Greene, made the connection in American’s minds between home decor and stained glass. This ushered in a happy “new” tradition in modern stained glass design that continues in decor. At Denver Stained Glass we thrilled each day to carry on the work of design masters such as Frank Lloyd Wright and others who had such incredible influence on the path of stained glass and what we see on homes today.

The Numerous Practical Reasons For Stained Glass
There is no question that stained glass is a stunning work of art. But did you know it is often called a “practical art”? This is because it is an extremely versatile medium which can be customized to suit nearly any design style or taste. In today’s day and age, stained glass can be used in nearly any room in the in a house (bathroom, kitchen, living room, entryway) and used functionally as cabinet doors or even a fireplace screen. It is truly fascinating how stained glass is able to function as both art and as a practical solution for privacy issues.
Some other, just as important, reasons why you might consider installing stained glass:
• Stained glass is a beautiful privacy option– especially useful for spaces like bathrooms or bedrooms.
• Stained glass can block an unattractive view like a vacant lot or a close neighbor
• Stained glass can express your personal tastes and act as a centerpiece for a design overhaul.
The truth is, it doesn’t matter where you put stained glass because it is always sure to steal the show! Likewise, you are guaranteed to enjoy the elegance it provides daily.

One common method of restoring damaged stained glass is remodeling and renovation. Through the renovation process, windows that are dull, cracked, or dirty can be restored to their original shine and color. Stained glass renovation is a common request that we receive from Denver churches, homes, or businesses that have antique or aging windows.
Many homeowners choose to use their basement as an entertainment area or extra guest bedroom. But because of its underground setting, this area is not always the easiest to decorate. Our stained glass windows are perfect for giving the basement in your Denver home an aesthetically pleasing, high-end look and make you look like a master of interior design.
If you’re familiar with the historic Capitol Hill area downtown in Denver, then you’ve probably seen Saint John’s Cathedral. With ceilings reaching up to a incredible height of 65 feet, it’s a sight that’s difficult to miss. But what you may not know is that this cathedral houses something that’s special to Denver and a must see for tourists. The stained glass windows in Saint John’s are one of Colorado’s greatest wonders. Not only are they remarkable for their beauty, but they’re also the work of some of the most talented artists the world has ever seen.
If you’re looking for a way to enhance the appearance of your home or commercial building and highlight its unique architectural features, you may want to consider installing a custom stained glass installation. Denver Stained Glass creates beautiful stained glass windows, signs, entryways, and more for home and business owners all throughout the Mile High City. Stained glass is a creative way to add charm and aesthetic appeal to your architecture. Due to its shimmering, prismatic appearance, stained glass shines like a precious gem and creates a high end, vintage look in any setting in which it’s displayed.
Recently at Denver Stained Glass, we asked our artisans about what style of stained glass they enjoy designing the most. While answers varied, we found that one of the most popular responses we received was prairie, also known as Frank Lloyd Wright style stained glass. In fact, it seems Denver is quite a fan of this famous mid-century architect as modern homes and buildings inspired by his work can be seen all throughout the city. Since we too are fans, we decided that we’d share a little bit of information about the master of modern design and how he influences our work here at Scottish.
Do you have a basement that you use as an entertainment room or extra guest room? If so, you may have run into a problem of what to do with the bare window wells in this area. Window wells can be tricky to decorate and often have a view of nothing at all but a plain brick wall. Basement stained glass can cover up unattractive window wells in your Denver home without blocking out the sun. With stained glass, you can still enjoy natural brightness in your basement while enhancing your interior design.
If you’ve ever driven down Colfax near North Capitol Hill, then you’ve probably seen the Cathedral Basilica of the Immaculate Conception. But what you may not know is that this building isn’t just the cathedral of the archdiocese of Denver. It’s also home to some of the most incredible religious artwork in the world.
From the windows in the Sainte Chapelle to the Chartres Cathedral, it’s widely know that religious sites host some of the most beautiful stained glass in the world. But we also have our own spectacular display of artwork right here in our Denver, Colorado churches. That’s why Denver Stained Glass has decided to launch this series of articles about the great church stained glass of Colorado. And first on deck is the stained glass in the United States Air Force Academy Chapel.

Sometimes it is better to replace a broken window with a brand new one. But when the broken window in question is stained glass, the situation gets a little bit more complicated. Some homes in Denver have antique stained glass windows that came with the home and are a large part of its appeal, and some stained glass windows have been in families for generations.
Denver Stained Glass has been creating religious stained glass for churches, sanctuaries, and houses of worship for well over 20 years. In fact, religious stained glass is one of the first things people think of when stained glass is mentioned, and having it in a house of worship seems to really add something to the experience for the congregation. Perhaps that is because stained glass does have such a long and distinguished history in churches around the globe. It is one of the ways that a church can tell a story and uplift its worshipers.
Some people have admired stained glass for years, but maybe thought that it was only for churches or multimillion dollar homes. It never occurred to them that even the custom-made, top-quality stained glass might be well within their budgets. It also never occurs to these people that it is not just a whim, not just a decorating idea, not just another purchase, but something that actually adds real dollar value to your home and might one day make the difference between selling it for the price you want . . . and having to compromise.
In the older neighborhoods and homes in Denver, you see many antique stained glass windows. We went to a party a couple of weeks ago, a cute little old house owned by two artists the Capital Hill area, and the first thing we saw when we walked through the door was a lovely old stained glass window in the hallway.
