Stained Glass For Your Custom Windows And Doors

Make your Winnipeg, MB custom windows and doors even more special with stained glass.  

Romans first developed stained glass in the 1st century, and its still around today making homes and other buildings more beautiful and unique. Stained glass windows are beautiful pieces of art you can easily install in your home for beauty and function. There are different types of stained glass, each with their own distinct features and benefits.  

 

One type is antique stained glass. You can install antique stained glass to blend old and new and bring character and light into your home. There are several ways to find antique stained glass:  

 

  • Shop at antique stores or salvage businesses 
  • Contact local artisans or restoration specialists  
  • Salvage old glass yourself from a condemned building  
  • Check out local Flea Markets for pieces others may have passed by 

 

Remember to consult with a specialist to clean and repurpose the stained glass to make sure it lasts as long as your new custom windows and doors.  

 

An easier, but maybe more expensive, way to get stained glass for your new windows is to order it custom. There are many businesses in Winnipeg and around the country that can make stained glass to match your exact style preferences and window size needs.  

 

A third type of stained glass is DIY. Making your own stained glass is a great way to save money. While DIY stained glass might not have the highbrow feel of expert-made options, its still beautiful and can save you money. You can even paint your new custom window and door glass after its been installed for a similar look.  

 

Once you have stained glass you salvaged or ordered, you get to decide what to do with it. There are many ways to use stained glass in your windows and doors.  

 

For instance, you can install a stained glass window above your kitchen sink, coordinating the colors in the glass with the colors in your backsplash or cabinets. Stained glass also makes for a great privacy window in the bathroom. Use stained glass windows in your bathroom to let in light while maintaining privacy. Want to go even bigger? Use stained glass on your doors. Stained glass in an entry or front door is very reminiscent of the Civil War era, and lends a regal air to your entryway.  

 

Are you hoping for a stained glass look but it doesn’t fit in the budget for your custom windows and doors? Install a stained glass valance over top your window or door. This way you still get the stained glass look without having to pay for fitting the glass
