With entryway stained glass, Arlington homes get a gorgeous upgrade in curb appeal and value as well. In many Arlington TX communities, the homes look very much alike. The entryways are all rather generic. For Arlington homeowners who are interested in creating a more personalized, more unique appearance to the front of their homes, we present stained glass as the perfect solution.
In McKinney Texas, many of the homes are built in developments where the houses all look pretty much the same. But since no two people are the same, McKinney homeowners love to personalize and individualize their homes. In the interiors, that usually means fabulous home décor. But for the exterior, that usually involves paint or siding colors and the landscaping. But what if you wanted to really upgrade the look of your home and ensure that it stood out from every other matching home on the block?
With entryway stained glass, McKinney homeowners can take their entryways from generic and ho-hum to unique and stunning.
Here at Stained Glass Dallas, all of our stained glass is custom designed to our clients’ needs and tastes. No project is too large or too small. When it comes to entryway stained glass, McKinney homes usually will have it installed in the sidelights next to the front door, to the transom window that might be above the front door. And sometimes, to let in more light and make an even greater impact, the stained glass is even inserted right into the front door itself. (Please take note, this might require purchasing a new front door, depending on the type of front door that is presently installed.)
Many of our Texas clients prefer colorless stained glass in their entryways, so that they don’t resemble church windows in the slightest. This style is called leaded stained glass, and it usually consists of a frosted or textured colorless glass (to provide privacy) combined with beautifully cut beveled glass to refract the light and add style and texture.
With leaded and beveled entryway stained glass, McKinney homeowners get a truly elegant, high end look that adds great curb appeal to their home, as well as great light inside the home’s entryway.
Because we create each stained glass panel custom to the client’s specifications, clients can choose from a huge array of already created patterns and designs, or they can work with one of our designers to create something completely unique, a one of a kind design. Styles range from antique to modern, including Mission and Prairie style, Art Nouveau and Art Deco, Celtic designs, and designs influenced by some of the most iconic stained glass designers of all time, including Frank Lloyd Wright, Charles Rennie Mackintosh, and Greene and Greene.
With this level of choice in entryway stained glass, McKinney customers are sometimes overwhelmed, but our designers are here to assist at every step of the way.

With entryway stained glass, Plano homeowners can add beauty, distinctiveness, value, and privacy to their homes. Which of these attributes most interests you?
Stained glass is a decorative art form; there’s no denying it. But it also offers practical benefits that surprise many customers. Let’s take a look at the whole privacy issue.
Many clients tell us they are uncomfortable with strangers being able to look inside their homes. This can easily happen if your home’s entryway has sidelights, those long narrow windows on either side of the front door. Of course, sidelights serve a great purpose, which is to let more light into the home. But for some people, there’s a tradeoff between light and privacy. They cover their sidelights with cloth or paper. What if you could have both light and privacy, though? With entryway stained glass, Plano homeowners get the privacy they are looking for without blocking the light.
When we design entryway stained glass, Plano customers usually prefer it to be colorless leaded and beveled glass. This style matches any color scheme, any décor, any architecture. Within this style of stained glass, we can make any pattern or design a homeowner likes, whether a Celtic Knot design, an antique or Art Nouveau design, a Mission style design, or any other style the homeowner prefers. Our designers help create the perfect design that adds privacy, and complements the style, architecture, and period of the home.
When it comes to entryway stained glass, Plano clients also love the individual aspect of it. After all, let’s face it. Many homes exteriors look pretty much the same within a neighborhood or development. Stained glass can take a generic, same old same old entryway and make it an eye catching, unique welcome to all who see it.
If you think about it, your home’s entryway is usually the first impression a visitor will have of your home. What do you want that first impression to say about you, your tastes, what they might find inside? With our custom designed and hand crafted entryway stained glass, Plano homes give off the impression of a well loved, well decorated home with upscale and unique tastes.
We’d love to work with you to create custom designed stained glass. To get a better idea of what we’re talking about, why not take a look at our gallery? It contains photos of some of the entryway stained glass Plano and other Texas clients have commissioned us to build and install.
