Choosing The Best Stained Glass Style For Your Dallas Home
Finding the best style of stained glass for the windows on your Dallas home is one of the most important parts of ensuring the window you buy will be a cherished feature for you and your family for years to come. Choosing the right style of stained glass window is really more about your personal tastes than it is the style of house. For instance, if you have a vintage home, a contemporary designed stained glass window can actually blend quite nicely, whether it matches your existing decor or simply your own personal tastes. You don’t want to pigeonhole your design decisions based on what period your home was built in, not to say that won’t play a factor. However, many styles of stained glass windows mix and match beautifully with other similar or very different architectural designs. We, at Stained Glass Dallas, have listed a few of our favorite design styles and listed a few home styles they would match.
Stained Glass Styles For Your Dallas Home
Frank Lloyd Wright Inspired Stained Glass: Often known for its geometric lines and architectural feel, Frank Lloyd Wright-inspired stained glass windows blend perfectly with any contemporary home but also look stunning in mid-century modern homes as well.
Mackintosh Style Stained Glass: Known best for the iconic Glasgow rose pattern at times has elements of both straight geometric lines on some designs and more slowly Art Nouveau on others. Because of their exquisite beauty and deep range of shapes and colors, Mackintosh style stained glass windows are a wonderful fit for something as modern as this century or even on houses from the Victorian Era.
Art Deco Style Stained Glass: Full of intricate and repeating patterns, colors and strong use of beveled glass, Art Deco style stained glass goes perfectly in today’s modern home, mid-century modern homes and of course, any home built in the 20’s or 30’s.
As you can see, stained glass windows are wonderful and versatile additions to any Dallas area home. Whether you are looking to modernize a turn of the century house or give your modern home a more organic feel, stained glass can transform and enhance any home.

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.

For followers of any religion or denomination, a site of worship is an incredibly sacred and important place. A church or temple allows someone to have a place where they can focus on their interactions with their God and further pursue their beliefs. It is a place where knowledge is shared, relationships are built, and ultimately, a source of peace for people’s lives.
