Create an Inviting Entryway Using Stained Glass in Fort Collins Homes

When it comes to home decor, we tend to obsess a lot over the interior – the colors of the walls, types of furniture, etc. Meanwhile, the exterior gets neglected when in reality, it needs attention the most. Not everyone sees the inside of your home, unless they’re your guests or family, but even strangers see the outside. It’s important to pay just as much attention the exterior as the interior, if not more. One area of the exterior that’s often neglected is the entryway. This is a shame because it’s one of the most important features of a home. Your entryway is the gateway to the rest of your home. Creating an inviting entryway can make a world of difference in how people feel when they come over to visit and their perception of your home. Entryway stained glass provides Fort Collins homeowners with a simple, yet elegant solution for enhancing their entryway. Here are a few different ways you can use it to improve the aesthetic appearance of your exterior.

    Unique Ways to Incorporate Stained Glass into Your Fort Collins Home Remodel

Unique Ways to Incorporate Stained Glass into Your Fort Collins Home Remodel

Most people associate stained glass with temples and churches, but the truth is that stained glass is actually a common addition in many homes. In fact, some of the oldest homes in Colorado were built with large stained glass windows in the entrances, bathroom, and kitchen areas. This idea has been around since America’s early years, but gained most of its popularity following the Civil War. Famous architects, including Frank Lloyd Wright and the Greene Brothers, chose to add stained glass to their building designs due to its ability to filter light. If you take a drive through Old Town Fort Collins, you can see beautiful examples of antique stained glass. Contemporary styles too have found their way into newer homes in Lyons, Miliken, and Loveland. And it’s easy to see why it’s retained such popularity over the years; stained glass windows are stunning to look at.

    How To Care For Stained Glass Windows in Your Fort Collins Home

How To Care For Stained Glass Windows in Your Fort Collins Home

Proper Stained Glass Maintenance And Repair Tips
Most homeowners don’t realize that stained glass windows are just as strong as any other window. They are, however, more valuable, harder to manufacture, repair and replace, should something happen to them. Also, stained glass windows are essentially pieces of art meaning, you want to keep it looking its best for as long as you can. The key to the long life of your stained glass, besides being properly created in the first place, is proper maintenance and care. Below are a few tips from us to you to help you care for your home’s gorgeous and valuable stained glass. It is important to note that stained glass, when properly crafted and cared for will last 80-100 years before needing repair–when properly maintained.
Combat Stained Glass Damage By Cleaning Your Glass
egular maintenance is the key to long life and continued brilliance of stained glass. Dirt and debris will build up on the glass, much like other places in your home. This could lead to excessive build-up that is hard to remove and much more expensive and time-consuming when it is. To avoid this, regularly go over your stained glass with a duster or gentle soapy water and remember not to use too much pressure.
Combat Stained Glass Damage With Regular Professional Cleanings
Having your stained glass cleaned by a professional once a year is a very good thing for your stained glass (especially if you are one to forget monthly cleanings). A professional, like Fort Collins Stained Glass, has the right tools to reach high windows, proper cleaning solvents, and we know how to treat the glass lightly so as not to damage or break the glass.
