FIREPLACE COVER THAT BRINGS COLOR TO WARM

There is nothing better than a chilly summer night, where you can fire up the fireplace.

Fireplaces can be a great thing, but the dangers for kiddos can be real. Glass surrounds will provide an extra layer of protection. As much as we love the protection, it doesn't hurt to have the room illuminating with colors!  Here is a pretty simple and custom project I did go a client.  Hope you like it!

KITCHEN CABINETS WANTED! SEEKING OUT PROJECTS

As you know I love the arts! Stained glass is definitely something I can stare at for hours, and I don't mean while I create, I mean walking into an old mansion, or building. One thing I love is modern with a splash of traditional. I think it's pretty neat how something so old can mix sometimes so effortlessly with today's trends. 

So if you have a modern kitchen and it has newer style cabinets, let's talk! I would love to see how we can make some magic with those cabinets! giving them a little uniqueness.

 

ABSENCE MAKES THE HEART GROW FONDER | DENVER STAINED GLASS

This is one of those sayings that really resinates in so many facets of our lives. Love, Homes, Hobbies, Jobs and the list can go on. Stained glass for many around Denver, and every other city in the world for that matter. Stained glass to me is a reminder to me that there were people and things before my existence. This past week I took some time and created a little something for my own home since most of the projects I make are for clients. It was nice, and my heart is filled with the love and passion I have for stained glass! I hope stained glass makes you feel the same way!

 

STAINED GLASS COMES IN MANY SHAPES AND SIZES | CUSTOM STAINED GLASS DENVER

At least 10 times per year I get asked, if there is any way to salvage a window frame where an old stained glass used to be. Usually the frame is shaped with my sides or long angles. These projects are one of my favorites due to the nature of problem solving and creating a unique piece in an old space. Here is an example. of that.

WHEN THE SIDELIGHTS MEET A DOOR INSERT | STAINED GLASS DENVER

Looking through thousands of projects that I've completed for clients all over the world. My heart always draws back to this project. The architecture is pretty mid-centre modern, but this house was actually a 2015. The full idea of the client was just to get maximum light. The client loved that she was able to introduce all this new light into her space and loved this simple project created a unique home feature that others in her area do not have. How creative is your space?

WINTER MAY BE OVER, BUT THAT FIREPLACE AIN'T GOING ANYWHERE | Denver Stained Glass

"Weather" your fireplace provides heat as a primary source, or if you just use to to supplement, the minute spring moves on in, your windows fling open with pollination hoorays! for the next 8 months that fire place will be around and can sometimes be an eye sore to stare inside and not see any beautiful orange flames. Fear not! Here are a couple fireplace ideas to spruce up 8 months and give the fireplace back some life! 

 

IF YOU CAN'T STAIN GLASS THE DOOR, STAIN GLASS THE SIDES!

Sometimes houses come with a good solid door, and a cheese glass sidelight. Those sidelights are there, so you can see out of them and to allow your home to be lightened up naturally. The huge issue people have with Sidelights is that they don't like to feel like they live in. fishbowl. They apply a film that's really thick and blocks about 2-3 stops of light, but also visibility, so you can see who's at your front door. Now stained glass can be clear is some spots for your to look out, or you can have me design some portions of different opacities, so you still make out if someone is at your door when they aren't suppose to be. 

So whether you have a sidelight or a nice return all next to you door, you have options to introduce Natural light, and also add a little visible security!

I LOVE DENVER | STAINED GLASS HAVEN

Here is a couple pieces that makes me just fall more and more in love with our state!

SPRING CLEANING IN DARKNESS ISN't IDEAL | DENVER STAINED GLASS

We have all tried to clean out a house, a room, or a closet only to not find what we were looking for, or not getting all the dust bunnies up and in the trash. By adding light to the area, you'll great improve seeing when cleaning, but it actually lights up the same and you'll avoid packing stuff in that area with clutter. Light shines on clutter after all. :)

HOW DO YOU WINE ROOM?

Wine rooms are amazing. Some are very in depth and some are super simple. I've fully designed wine rooms  to simple door inserts, but in the end the stained glass work brings "a level up" to the project and you'll be reminded every time you enter down there or take a guess, how hard you worked to achieve that status. 

WOULD YOU RATHER? (GAME NEVER TO PLAY)

Sitting around the table with some friends, we were all playing a game called, would you rather. It was interested how quickly that games escalates into the most ridiculous scenarios. One I got was, Would you rather eat a tub of butter, or drink a bottle of olive oil. Both seemed like a gross choice, but yes I did choose the Butter.. 

I got to thinking about how this applies to stained glass and how when you're out looking for the right denver stained glass company, or online auction site to make a piece of art, you really are playing this game with some companies. 

So would you rather pay a little more and get "just okay" or pay little more and get "extraordinary?"

 

ARE SIDELIGHTS REALLY WORTH ADDING? | STAINED GLASS ADDITION

I know those dark entry ways that make you turn a light on as soon as you enter. I know the frustrations with keys in one hand and groceries on the other as you try to raise your arms to hit the switch. Enter the Sidelights. If you have room to cut out and put some in, not only do you have the option to add elegance and creativeness, but adding that functionality is key.. I know wha you are thinking, "but Steve, what about night time?" Well  there is a simple solution. Porch lights. 99% of houses have them, and the other 1% just haven't changed the light bulb. :) Here some beautiful work I created for a client. Also if you look to the right you'll see some more I've done  Have a great days everyone!

HEIRLOOM STAINED GLASS | DENVER STAINED GLASS

We are ushering new generations of young ones who don't understand heirlooms. We have to help them understand the values of what they stand for and thinking long terms family lines. stained glass is something that can bring that back with custom family seals and crests, or even to the basic of having your surname made apart of the glass window. give it some consideration on what your kids will have to pass onto their kids.

RENTALS ARE GREAT SPACES FOR STAINED GLASS

One of my favorite clients will always be the Landlords. These are people who value stained glass. When they come to me with a rental property, I know they truly care about the people they are renting too. A landlord doesn't have to put in beautiful art pieces to rent a space, but my clients do. They see a family or a single person move into a house and they really want them to feel like they live in a home. That creates renter ownership.

WHEN'S THE LAST TIME YOUR SPRING CLEANED IN WINTER? | Denver Stained Glass

Winter is a great time for us colder snow states to really get our focus on what matters in our home space. It helps us to not feel anxious or trapped during those stormy rains, blistering hails, or dense snow drifts. Clean space with a Smash of our beautiful 300 days a day sun coming in through a new stained glass window seems like something that would make even Mr. Grinch himself smile :)
