Renovating a Home — Consider Stained Glass for that Classic Touch

Renovating a room of the house can be a daunting task for any homeowner. Between choosing contractors and finalizing color combinations, it can be difficult to get an accurate vision of what the end result will be. Consider taking your renovation project to the next level of innovative design by seeing the dramatic difference including stained glass can make.

Scottish Stained Glass is an excellent choice with our decades of experience working with projects ranging from medieval church glass restorations to residential new construction. For some project inspiration, take a look at these five sample projects too see the kind of touches stained glass can make in any room of the house.

Bathrooms: One of Scottish Stained Glass’s most requested options is for bathroom renovations to have a private stained glass window installed in the commonly large and clear picture window above the garden bathtub. While these clear windows are beautiful for providing for the room’s need for natural light, due to privacy concerns the rooms are typically darkened with blinds or a heavy curtain. Choosing to consider diffusing stained glass designs in your ensuite renovation budget will bring your home project to the next level of beauty and design.

Foyers: Another Scottish Stained Glass favorite is our range of designs for transforming entryways into grand foyers. It is said that first impressions are the most important and what better way than by bringing some sparkle to your home’s front door? Privacy is an added bonus to the beauty of these stained glass windows with our Designers able to suggest the perfect textured glass to accommodate the homeowner’s privacy needs.

Kitchen:  Where else does your family come together more than your kitchen and breakfast table? Scottish Stained Glass brings a touch of elegance to the heart of your home by giving some translucency to kitchen cabinets and special treatment for pantry doors.

Wine Cellars: More and more homeowners are bringing a touch of the old world to their homes with wine cellar additions and conversions. Stained glass is the perfect accent to rich wood craftsmanship to display and protect wine collections. From the cellar door to the wine glass cabinets, Scottish Stained Glass is able to bring an authentic European tradition to your wine cellar installation.

Sunrooms and Greenhouses: Here in North Texas our summers are notorious and while sunrooms may seem like a good idea for winter, the summer heat can overwhelm the bright glass rooms. Try diffusing some of that glaring sunlight by investing in stained glass windows for the sunnier rooms in the home. The texture of the stained glass will illuminate the room with sunlight, reduce direct glare and UV damage, and offer more insulation from the summer heat by upgrading your single pane windows to a double pane, or even boost your double pane window to a top of the line triple pane.
