For modern kitchens here in the KC area, there simply is not a better design accent than a stunning stained glass window or feature. You may think of stained glass as old-fashioned and not something for the modern home. But, stained glass, particularly in kitchens can actually be very modern. Below we have outlined some of our favorite uses of stained glass in kitchens and why we think it is so incredibly modern.
Stained Glass Kitchen Cabinets
One of the most ubiquitous uses for stained glass in kitchens is on the cabinets. It lends such an amazing aesthetic and is so very eye-catching. The best part though is that stained glass used as cabinet doors gives you the modern open cabinet feel but with a little bit of coverage for anything that could look cluttered
Stained Glass Kitchen Windows Over Sinks
The reason for stained glass over sinks in kitchens is fairly easy to understand–it to keeps you from accidentally gazing into your neighbors home or yard while doing your mindlessly doing dishes. However, it also keeps your neighbor’s eyes out of your personal and active kitchen. This is one area where you can really get creative and modern with your stained glass choices in your kitchen. Nothing looks better with clean lines and modern decor in a home kitchen than the pops of color you will get with stained glass.
Stained Glass Room Divider
A lot of people have kitchens that open up to the living area or dining room. This is a fantastic setting for entertaining but can be difficult to divide seamlessly. Stained glass panels are an excellent addition to give you a tiny bit of separation and a ton of modern style! Bold, innovative and the contemporary look you crave–stained glass room dividers are fast coming into vogue.
