When you decide to redecorate your home, consider adding stained glass panels for a little extra pizza. This can add color and style to your home, adding warmth and charm to any room. The choices for stained glass are almost limitless, as well as the applications for it. Choosing what to do with the stained glass may be the hardest part of redecorating, but with a few tips and simple ideas the process will be much easier than you think.
While the applications of stained glass panels are almost limitless, there are a few things to consider before choosing them. One of the most important things to consider is resale value of your home after you install them. Try to pick designs that flow with the home you have and the area you live in. For example, if you own a home in the desert try picking colors such as reds, yellows, and oranges as well as themes that enhance the style of the home and the area you live in. If you install a full winter scene for a window or dark colors like blue or black, while very pretty, many potential buyers in the hot desert area will not fully appreciate it. This can bring the value of your home down simply because it would be harder to sell. However, you can get around this by picking glass panels that can be easily removed if you do decide to sell your home later on. This can be done with a covering over the actual window or even by using the piece as a painting to be hung on the wall.
The second thing to consider when choosing glass panels is how they will tie in with the redecorating style you have chosen. Picking colors that are in the same family as the primary color you are using or from patterns that you are using in the room will help achieve a cohesive look to the overall design. Depending on how big of an impact you want to add to the room you are redecorating will help you decide whether to add some color or designs in the panels you pick. Many pieces can be bought online already made but also consider getting custom made stained glass for your room as this may fit your particular tastes better than some glass panels you may find online. Once you have decided colors and themes for the room you want to redecorate, it is time to decide where to add stained glass panels into the room. Almost everything can be used for the stained glass but adding too much to any one room will actually detract from the effect you want with the panels. Keeping it simple can sometimes be your best option. By carefully choosing the placement of the stained glass it can have a big impact on the room. This can be done by changing your sconces, replacing regular glass cabinets to stained glass, or by even changing drawer fronts. If you go with glass panel cabinets consider adding a back light to really make it shine.
