Stained Glass Style Guide For Houston Homes
Stained glass is so ubiquitous on homes in the Houston area and all around our great state of Texas because it comes in a lot of different, yet beautiful themes, styles, colors, and textures. Below are a couple of ideas that we see most often on homes in the Houston area.
Patterned: Patterned stained glass includes repeating shapes, sizes, and colors. This symmetrical style allows for relatively low production costs while offering detailed and gorgeous designs.
Tiffany Style: Opalescent glass, with its “milky” or “streaked” appearance, is indicative of Tiffany-style stained glass. This style also incorporates numerous layers and thicknesses of glass within each composition
Contemporary: Contemporary stained glass features scant patterns and in some cases geometric, repeating lines. Designers like Greene and Greene or Frank Lloyd Wright fit into this category. This style often incorporates bold leaded lines as part of the design.
Traditional: Stained glass in the traditional style includes realistically painted figures, flowers or foliage or other elegant motifs and usually an intricate lead matrix.
