Case Study: Using Stained Glass for Privacy and Style in Your Staircase

On 06, Jan 2020 | No Comments | In Aggrigate, Privacy Stained Glass | By Martin Faith

Does your home’s staircase have windows? Many homes throughout the Austin area have beautiful windows that let in a lot of sunlight in the staircase and hallway area. The only drawback of these large windows is the lack of privacy. For many residential areas, these staircase windows can give a direct view inside of your neighbor’s home. Onlookers and nosy neighbors can all peer into your home or see you in a bathrobe going up and down your stairs. Instead of having to put on clothes when going downstairs or opting for undesired blinds that obstruct your sunlight, choose leaded glass!

The Advantages of Privacy Stained Glass for Your Austin Home’s Staircase

Privacy stained glass offers both beauty and privacy which is perfect for your home’s stairway. Rather than installing unsightly blinds and window treatments, homeowners can take advantage of privacy stained glass. Window coverings always obstruct natural light and can be hard to manage in your stairway. Stained glass and leaded glass both present privacy options that obstruct unwanted views into your home without changing the significant natural light transmission. Privacy stained glass gives homeowners the peace of mind they need for ultimate privacy while also enhancing their home’s curb appeal. Don’t sacrifice comfort or sunlight with this great privacy solution.
