Top 3 Styles of Stained Glass For Entryways

  1. Beveled And Textured Stained Glass: Made by taking  thick clear glass and cutting it into various shapes with angles–beveled stained glass is lovely in entryways.  Add to this the elegant look of textured stained glass that can vary in opacity and you have the right combination for the sidelight of your Houston home. You get exactly the privacy level you need to protect those inside your home from unwanted protection.  Plus, the way the light shines through creates incredible prisms to fill your entryway with dancing light.
  2. Art Deco Stained Glass:  There is a resurgence of geometric motifs in the country right now and here in Houston is no exception.  Which is why Art Deco stained glass, made up of primarily straight lines or mirrored images–is perfect for any home–new or old.  The patterns of yesterday are in again and look stunning matched with most style homes from craftsman to contemporary. Also, Art Deco glass is highly sought after and likely to boost your resale value when you sell.
