Privacy in any city is hard to come by. And, the usual privacy solutions, like curtains and blinds are pretty boring. When drawn, they do block out the unwanted eyes of your neighbors and those passing by. But they also block out natural light. So, as an alternative to blinds and curtains, stained glass is a way to get privacy and a few other key benefits at the same time.

Stained Glass Makes a Great Privacy Solution

Curtains and blinds are necessary for most of your home and they do a great job keeping your home more private. But what about the windows through which you could use natural light? Or want semi-privacy? This is where stained glass is a great idea and it increases the value of your home too.

The best windows for privacy stained glass instead of blinds or curtains are:

Stained Glass as a Unique Design Element

Curtains and blinds are in almost every home in the US. They are also kind of run of the mill lacking any real character. So, if you want to make a room really pop use stained glass instead of curtains or blinds. They add intriguing color, texture or work as a stylistic element. Curtains or blinds simply cannot compete with the brilliance of stained glass.

Stained Glass to Curb the Sun’s Rays

To be clear–stained glass does not give UV protection unless treated with a window film or tint. But the protection you get from curtains or blind isn’t that great either. While stained glass may not protect from UV rays, windows with colored and even textured stained glass do give some relief against the direct sun. And, you still get plenty of natural light.

The benefits of stained glass are obvious! It just makes sense as an alternative to blinds in curtains and is simply superior in some areas of your home. For more info on stained glass or to get an estimate for a window in your home, contact us at Custom Stained Glass today!
