Colored glass can light up your home!

This beautiful design element attracts more attention than clear glass and can change the mood in a room.

When most of us think of glass objects, whether they’re for interior design or not, we think of clear materials. And most of us think of glass as an invisible part of our décor.

Colored glass can add light, reflection and sparkle to your home plan, all because of how sunlight or your own interior lighting interacts with the surfaces.

Stained glass windows are an obvious choice. They’ve been popular for many centuries, bringing brightly colored light into ancient castles, homes and religious buildings. Stained glass can add vintage style to your home or create a touch that’s modern to the max. And stained glass can be custom designed for the exact size and shape of your windows to provide a truly unique design element.

If you’re not up for stained glass, consider using window glass with a soft violet, golden or green hue to soften the quality of light coming in, especially in rooms that get a lot of sun or in powder rooms, entries and hallways. Think outside the window! Colored glass can be used for so much more than just windows, including:

  • Coffee tables and dining tables

  • Chandeliers

  • Lamps

  • A display of glass vases, bowls, bottles or figurines

  • Colored glass crystals on the floor of your fireplace

  • Tile and floor accents

  • Even wind chimes, garden sculpture and tile in the garden

Colored glass is the clear choice for a design update this year. It adds touches of light and sparkle to your interior décor!
