Decorative glass has been used through the ages to provide windows and doors with beauty, style and elegance.

Decorative glass has been used through the ages to provide windows and doors with beauty, style and elegance – and the timeless craft has been revived over the last two decades as modern home owners have discovered its ability to add character and charm to a property.

Whether you live in a modern town house, a traditional suburban home, or a country cottage, there are a variety of different Decorative Glass products in the Pilkington product portfolio that combine leading-edge technology and traditional craftwork to breathe life into a home.

And whilst these designs provide an attractive addition to any property, they can be combined with a range of glasses to provide safety, security and thermal insulation. 

 

Bevelled doors and fanlights

Bevelled glass from Pilkington incorporates 5mm glass multi-faceted pieces, clusters and shapes which refract and reflect light to create a constant interplay of movement. Incorporating ‘prism’ designs, the glass facets greatly enhance the effect of light in the home, creating an environment of the homeowner’s design. 

 

Leaded doors and fanlights

Perfect for both modern houses and well-established properties, Pilkington’s leaded designs can be used to add tasteful elegance to a home.

The designs are manufactured using a decorative glass technique known as ‘overlay’, whereby all the materials are applied to the outer leaf of the insulating glass unit, creating a truly modern version of leaded glass that features greater strength and insulation than traditional stained glass. 

 

Georgian and leaded window patterns

Pilkington also offers homeowners an extensive range of exclusive Georgian and leaded designs, both modern and traditional. The various patterns add a degree of style and class to complement their surroundings.
