Stained glass could make your home library an amazing space.

If you love to read and love books, you might have a home library. I’m talking about a room
dedicated to reading and books. This is a common feature in many larger Houston homes. A home library is a lovely luxury and a room that almost seems tailor made for the inclusion of stained glass.

Imagine how beautiful it would be to complete this room with a custom, home library stained glass window. How peaceful it would be to sit and enjoy your favorite book with the light shining through your stained glass window.

Now, when most people think of stained glass, they usually picture the vivid colors of stained glass they have seen in churches. But for your home library stained glass, you might just want something a bit more subtle, like a clear, frosted stained glass. This will let natural sunlight into your reading room, which is so important, and still give you a beautiful piece of stained glass art to admire. If you go with beveled glass, you might be treated to some beautiful prisms of light dancing around your home library; stained glass made with beveled glass will do that.

A home library is usually a place of quiet and peacefulness. It’s a place where you sit down to learn, to enjoy, to celebrate the written word. It’s a place where stained glass can be a perfect fit. Where would you like stained glass in a home library? In the window? How about in any cabinet doors? How about in the lighting fixtures? Or in the skylight, if you are lucky enough to have one?

Wherever you choose to install home library stained glass, Houston Stained Glass can design and build the perfect piece to complement your library. Imagine yourself right now, settling down with a favorite book in a big comfy, overstuffed leather chair in your well-appointed library. Imagine the light blazing through your stunning stained glass lighting fixture or filtering through your stained glass window or door. The beauty of stained glass art, the power and magic of a room full of cherished books. We’d call that a small slice of home library heaven.
