    Stained and leaded glass can make a beautiful decorative addition to any window or door. They have many advantages besides aesthetics. For one, they let in some light but provide a shading feature as well. They can also provide a cultural or religious significance as well, such as within a church. Stained and leaded glass manufacturers make these items, in addition to panel glass, beveled glass, lamps, and sidelight windows. Many offer custom products as well, to fit irregular window and door spaces. The colors within stained and leaded glass can be vibrant or muted, depending on the purpose and style of the home or other building. These products have an art deco feel, and can be modern but yet feature a touch of Victorian elements. So who are the typical customers of such manufacturers? Churches, schools, antique dealers, contractors, and designers all require the services of stained glass supply providers. Since stained glass can provide an artsy design both in terms of appearance and pattern, they are often used in homes, offices, and other structures. It doesn't come cheap, though. Prices vary by company, depending on the size of the window or door, and the intricacy of the design. The use of stained glass can be seen throughout history. It began centuries ago primarily as a Christian art form used in cathedrals throughout Europe. Early glass artists were apparently inspired by tile mosaics, and utilized a lead framework, rather than gold. Today, one can't walk into a church without seeing stained glass windows and panels, a hallmark of religion that began many years ago. In terms of repair, consumers can head to the Internet or their local library to read up on how to guides and refinishing manuals, especially when in the midst of a renovation.
