Leaded stained glass for a beautiful new style.

Leaded stained glass for a beautiful new style.

If you have always admired and appreciated the beauty of stained glass and have considered adding some in your home, what might be stopping you?

When most people think of stained glass, they immediately imagine the vivid, deep and rich colors of church stained glass. But that seems a bit much for a private home, doesn’t it? And they might worry that not only will the look be too much, it will also block the light. If you are interested in the kind of stained glass that would let in more light or even enhance the light, you might consider leaded stained glass.

Leaded stained glass refers to clear textured glass with leaded lines that let in light while maintaining a beautiful style. And if you add some beveled stained glass into the mix, the light shining through will refract into pretty prisms of rainbow colors, that will really light up a room.

These days, many stained glass aficionados use the terms stained glass and leaded stained glass interchangeably. We can tell you what the difference means to us. Regular stained glass is the colored kind that you usually think of first. But the leaded stained glass is the clear kind. The kind that will match easily with absolutely any color scheme. They type that will complement any décor or any architecture.
