Stained Glass Brings Character To Your Interior Decor

Stained Glass Brings Character To Your Space

When clients call...

GHID Interior Designer, Lisa is working on a beautiful home in Hood River that is home that is over 100 years old. It is a home that has great charm, matching the personalities of our wonderful clients. After getting a better understanding of what our clients wanted out of their master bath, we created a  floor plan and elevation to incorporate all of their wants. Our clients wanted to maximize the amount of natural light that came into the master bath as well as privacy, so we decided that the perfect solution was to include stained glass windows into the design.

Once the clients agreed to the plan, Lisa started researching local companies that specialized in stained glass windows. Stained Glass Overlay (SGO) was quickly attracted to SGO, because they are the only company in town that can do an stained glass overlay.

What does that mean? Traditional stained glass windows are normally single-paned windows that are held together by lead, which is super inefficient. SGO offers an overlay stained glass option, meaning she will create stained glass that is the same size of your existing window, placing the stained glass on the interior of the window. Much more efficient! After Lisa spoke to Linda, the owner and artist at SGO, and visited the showroom, Lisa knew that we wanted to work with SGO.

According to Linda there is such a good feeling when a piece of art is complete and the customer is pleased with the change. Among the many things that Lisa found attractive about the company, SGO is also a firm supporter of recycle and supporting local businesses. SGO turns everyday glass into designer glass and is up for whatever a clients needs or challenge they are facing. You name it and they'll create customized beautiful solutions for it!

Ideas For Ways To Bring Stained Glass Windows Into Your Interior Decor

When I heard about bringing stained glass into a home, I (sadly) had a hard time envisioning how to bring stained glass into current interior decorating, but that could very well be my lack of experience in the interior design industry. In case you too need some visual examples of ways to incorporate stained glass into your interior decor, I've included some beautiful spaces that feature this art medium. After looking at these photos, I feel like stained glass is a feature that I want to include into my future home!
