Stained Glass Benefits

Stained glass for a contemporary home.

On 29, Oct 2014 | No Comments | In Stained Glass Benefits, Stained Glass For Homes | By Martin Faith

Stained glass is often thought of as old glass inside chapels or churches. This style of stained glass, although beautiful and traditional, doesn’t always appeal to everyone’s specific styles and tastes.

Denver Stained Glass however can custom design stained glass to fit any style you choose. In fact, Denver Stained Glass often works alongside interior decorators to design contemporary stained glass designs for modern homes.

Contemporary stained glass has a whole different look and feel than the kind found in Europe’s cathedrals, but it’s no less beautiful. The craftsmanship is no less important and the attention to detail is still paramount. But while ancient stained glass might have depicted icons and religious symbols, modern stained glass depicts anything the purchaser wants.

Here at Denver Stained Glass, we have created our own line, our signature Aspen Collection. That’s a no-brainer since we are located here in Colorado. However, although any kind of floral designs are considered quite traditional in nature, they can also be done with a contemporary touch.

We think you’ll agree that these collections are both excellent examples of contemporary stained glass. The fact is, because all of our pieces are custom designed, any style you pick – no matter how long ago it first became popular – can be done with a contemporary flair.

Stained glass styles that are considered contemporary are Art Deco, Mission Style, and the Prairie Style.

There are two main ways of choosing a stained glass style for your home or office or other commercial space. The first is to go by your own tastes. Of course you know what you like. If you love vivid colors, if you prefer clear uncolored glass with more texture, or if you have a signature style of your own. You know if you like detailed flowers or loose, minimalistic modern art designs.

The second way to choose a custom, contemporary stained glass style is to let it be dictated by the period or architecture of your home. If you have an old Victorian, you might choose a stained glass style from that era to perfectly complement your home. If your home is more modern, a more modern design might be just the thing. Perhaps something inspired by Frank Lloyd Wright’s stained glass designs, which feature mostly clear glass with jolts of earth or jewel tones interspersed in dramatic patterns?

But whatever style you choose, our designers will work with you to ensure that it is exactly what you want and will look spectacular in your home.

A contemporary home is made more elegant, more eclectic, more stylish with the addition of contemporary stained glass. Why not contact us today to choose the pattern and style that suit you?
