Transform your home with coloured glass

When it comes to interior design, we often focus on paint, furniture, and home accessories. However, one element that’s often overlooked, but can make a significant impact, is the use of coloured glass. Using coloured glass in your home can add a vibrant dimension to your interior design. In this blog, we’ll explore the various ways you can incorporate coloured glass into your home and the benefits it brings to your living space.

The benefits of coloured glass in your living space

There are endless ways you can incorporate coloured, painted or stained glass in your home. You may not have even considered it until now, but we’ll provide you with some inspiration on how you can add it to your humble abode. Not only is coloured glass a feast for the eyes, it also has some benefits: 

  • Stained glass windows increase the perceived value of your home. 
  • Painted glass panels are perfect for large wall feature areas for contemporary designs. Choosing an opaque paint is an elegant solution for privacy, whilst allowing natural light to filter through.
  • Adding coloured glass into stud walls can set the tone for different rooms. From relaxing blues to vibrant reds, it can be a real mood booster!
  • Let’s not forget the aesthetic appeal, coloured glass fixtures serve as functional art pieces that add colour and style, whether that’s as a wall feature, privacy screen or a vibrant splashback. 
  • With so many colours and styles out there, coloured glass is very versatile. And better yet, you can pick your favourite colour from the huge range of RAL, NCS, Farrow and Ball and Dulux. 
  • Coloured glass is easy to clean and maintain, making it a great choice for areas prone to spills and splatters (perfect for the kitchen splashback). 
  • The glass can make the space appear brighter and larger due to its reflective properties. 

Where can coloured glass go in your home?

Coloured glass finds its place in many locations throughout your home, adding character, style, and a pop of vibrancy, also creating focal points and enhancing the overall aesthetic. But where are the most popular places to use coloured glass? 


Coloured glass in bathrooms is like a burst of personality and style amidst the daily routines. Whether you pick elegant frameless glass showers, or even chic, coloured mirrors, you can transform the bathroom into a sanctuary of beauty. Coloured sandblasted screens or coloured privacy screens can also play a functional role by offering privacy, diffusing light, and hiding the necessary clutter in your bathroom. From soft, earthy tones that promote relaxation, to bold shades that add energy, go for a bespoke glass design to match your bathroom. 


Coloured glass in kitchens introduces a dynamic that can transform the heart of your home into a culinary haven. Think about places where you would like to add colour or change the mood of the room. Glass splashbacks are a great choice, they are not only visually pleasing but practical too. Its reflective qualities give the space a sense of spaciousness, making it feel inviting and open. 

Living Spaces

Having painted glass can breathe life into living spaces. Whether it’s stained glass windows, coloured mirrors, glass dividers, or vibrant glass decor; coloured glass offers a wonderful dimension to any room. It infuses energy, warmth, and individuality, while creating a harmonious blend with your existing furnishings. From the soft, soothing tones that give relaxation vibes, to the bold colours that stimulate creativity, coloured glass allows you to tailor the ambiance of your living spaces.
