Leaded Glass: Enhance Privacy And Design

Leaded Glass: Enhance Privacy And Design

Imagine waking up in the morning, making a cup of coffee, sitting down next to a beautiful, leaded glass window, and enjoying the sun shining through. This is a reality for many Kansas City residents.

It is so easy to find exactly what you’re looking for with Kansas City Stained Glass.
Now, if you are wondering about the distinction between leaded glass and stained glass, we are here to set the record straight. There’s really no difference at all

However, in the stained glass industry, the term leaded glass is usually used to describe a window made with clear, colorless glass. And the term stained glass refers to the same type of window panel that is constructed of colored glass. However, if you use the two terms interchangeably, no one will complain.

Did you know that the famous architect and designer Frank Lloyd Wright designed well over 4,000 leaded glass windows and doors for over 150 of his buildings?

Art and architecture critics generally referred to these gorgeous creations as “leaded glass.” Wright created his leaded glass designs not just for windows alone, but also for doors, skylights, back-lit ceiling panels, table lamps, and even wall sconces. They consisted of mainly clear glass, with small pieces of colored glass inserted into the patterns in jewel tones or his beloved earth tones.


But enough about his leaded glass. Let’s talk instead about YOURS!

Do you have an entryway that needs sprucing up, and perhaps a bit more privacy added as well?

Leaded glass windows in your sidelights, front door, or transom window about the door are the perfect solution. Look at our entryway stained glass gallery to get some inspiration.

Do you have a lovely kitchen, bathroom, or even basement window that’s great for air flow, but opens onto a less than appealing view? Again, leaded glass windows will turn those rooms into a work of art and give you something endlessly pleasing to look at, as well as adding value to your Kansas City home.

And when it comes to the style of leaded glass, anything goes. Frank Lloyd Wright was famous for what came to be known as the Mission style of leaded glass. Here at Kansas City Stained Glass, we are big fans of his work, and would be delighted to design you some leaded glass windows, doors, skylights, kitchen cabinets, etc, in the style of the iconic Mr. Wright.

Or in any other style you prefer. Whatever style matches your tastes and your home’s décor. From modern designs to traditional and antique styles, all of our leaded glass is custom made to your order, custom designed and hand-built. Any size, any shape, any kind of glass.
