Stained & Leaded Glass: The Perfect Investment For Your Dallas Home
For a home improvement chalked full of elegance and style–there is no match for stained and/or leaded glass. This is because the beauty of these works of art is undeniable. It is easy to see the beautiful lines and pretty patterns that these craft pieces are a welcome and lovely addition to any home. Likewise, their function is immediately apparent– adding privacy and a definitive touch of class to any part of your Dallas home. While both the beauty and practicality of stained and leaded glass windows are two things our future clients come to us understanding, one thing they sometimes don’t realize is–the dramatic impact on home resale values–real and perceived. That’s right– should you ever decide to put stained or leaded glass in your Dallas home the boost you get from your custom stained glass window(s) will pay off–in big ways.
How Does Stained Glass Affect The Value Of My Dallas Home?
The way stained glass affects the value of your Dallas home is two-part.
Real Value: It is relatively easy to understand how stained glass directly affects your home’s resale value. Essentially, a stained glass window appraises for much more per square foot than what you paid per square foot. The multiplier is actually bigger than you might expect–sometimes as high as 10X what you originally paid. So, for instance, if you paid $600 for a stained glass window, it could appraise for as much as $6000 when you go to sell–that is an amazing ROI!
Perceived Value: Stained and leaded glass affects the perceived value of your Dallas home by making your home appear more attractive and thereby more valuable to potential buyers.
Stained glass will:
-Draw attention to glass and away from other imperfections in your home
-Make your home appear vintage and classy
-Make a great first impression on potential buyers
-Make your home stand out from other houses at similar price points
For these reasons stained glass makes for a significant increase in perceived value of your home which definitely ends up in a speedy sale, at the price point you are looking for–not bad for a relatively small investment to begin with!

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.
