Stained Glass Colors For Your Dallas Home
Stained glass and the processes that go into making are ancient. You probably already know stained glass as being something that is both colorful and intricate but what you may yet know is– the glass that has been colored by adding metallic salts during the manufacturing process, giving us all the wonderful colors we see today. Also, color can also be applied by painting on the surface of the glass and later fused together by a kiln. Regardless of which method is used to give the glass color, the results are always stunning and make stained glass windows to be a beautiful addition to any home. Keep in mind, which color combinations you chose will contribute immensely to the success of stained glass in your home’s decor. Below are simple and sure stained glass color combinations that will make the stained glass you buy from Stained Glass Dallas an instant masterpiece!
Fantastic Stained Glass Color Combinations For Your Dallas Home
Monochromatic: One amazing way to make a statement but not do too much is to use different shades of the same color. This is especially useful when the room you are putting stained glass in is already done in a bright color scheme. The best bet is to choose a complimentary color to the existing room colors. ex: red/green blue/orange purple/yellow.
Neutral: This is the perfect option for rooms that face or frame a natural setting already. Not only that– neutrals go with just about any color palette you may already have in your home. So rather than pile on more color, look for neutral tones.
Beveled: If the room you would like to put the custom stained glass window in is fairly bustling and bright with color already, using opaque glass with plenty of bevels to bend the light, is an awesome way to harness the power of refracted light beautifully, while still keeping the window from clashing in any way.
Bold: Using a lot bright and varied colors is a fun way to use stained glass, as strong colors are one of stained glasses best attributes. In rooms or hallways that are either very light colored or white, using the power of bold colors is perfectly acceptable and a fun way to use the advantages of stained glass’s numerous bright color possibilities.

Stained Glass For A New Century
When people think stained glass it is natural for them to associate it with church decor. In fact is it somewhat synonymous with all sorts of religious institutions such as cathedrals, churches, synagogues and even mosques. The next likely association people make of stained glass is home decor from the victorian or craftsman eras of design. In fact, many people who own a home built in either of those time periods likely has a stained glass window (or even two or three) on their home. This is because, iconic designers like Frank Lloyd Wright and The Greene Brothers, during the first half of the 20th century, made a link in the minds of Americans between stained glass and home style rather than strictly adornments for churches. Since then, its popularity has only risen and is just as in vogue today than ever before. At Stained Glass Dallas, we are happy that each day we are able to continue the work of such design masters who had such a strong and lasting impact on the American home style we still see today.
