Update Your Houston Craftsman Style Home with Frank Lloyd Wright Style Stained Glass

Did you know that Frank Lloyd Wright style stained glass can make a beautiful addition to Houston’s craftsman homes? Frank Lloyd Wright style stained glass, also referred to prairie stained glass, first found its origin in craftsman homes. Prairie style stained glass was one of Frank Lloyd Wright’s most important contributions to modern art and architecture and even remains high in popularity today.

About Frank Lloyd Wright’s Prairie Style Homes

Though Wright began designing craftsman homes in the prairie fashion in the early 1900’s, the style remained popular for a number of years and is commonly found in older cities and historic neighborhoods throughout the US. And it’s no wonder too; craftsman homes are stunning! Characterized by broad eaves, flat roofs, and crisp horizontal lines, prairie style craftsman homes are certainly stunning to look at.

But certainly the best part of a prairie style home is the stained glass. Frank Lloyd Wright used stained glass in many of his architectural designs due to its ability to filter and control light. The stained glass provides privacy while softening light and creating a soothing glow within the home’s interior.

Prairie Style Stained Glass: a Timeless Tradition

Even today, many homeowners choose to add modern prairie style stained glass windows to their historic properties to try to recreate the “Frank Lloyd Wright look”. In Houston’s older neighborhoods, there are many of these such homes and they’re all wonderful to look at. There’s something just so serene about seeing the beautiful prairie style stained glass while driving through these historic areas.
