The term stained glass was adapted from the silver stain applied on the sides of windows. When the glass is heated, the silver stain would turn yellow. This discovery eventually led to the creation of stained-glass windows where artists from the Renaissance period would paint the windows in order for light to shine through the painting. The stained-glass design was applied primarily on church windows, but as time passed, it become a significant part of interior design. They are now used as transom windows, kitchen cabinets doors, and tables.

Another awesome trend is the utilization of chalkboard textures. It has been used not only in classrooms but in restaurant menus, websites, invitations, and even in animated crash-course videos. Chalkboard texture comes in three main background colors, specifically green, grey, and black. They can either be messy, rough, or clean and smooth.
Textures need to be balanced in a design so the entire layout does not look distracting. Textures must go together with patterns and colors that you choose for your digital design because these three elements work together in creating harmony in your layout. We offer you some tips below in using the right textures for your design:
- Bright and scattered textures for dark backgrounds. Like the law of opposites, bright textures such as colorful stained glasses are best used as overlays for darker backgrounds.
- Rough and compact textures for light backgrounds. When rough and compact textures are matched with light backgrounds, the effect is a beautiful landscaped layout.
- Vertical textures for more length. Textures with vertical lines like the floral stained glass give an illusion of an elongated portrait.
- Horizontal textures for more space. Horizontal textures make a graphic layout appear more spacious, especially when it is cramped with a lot of text.
Follow these simple design rules for texture and color and you’ll produce great layouts that can attract more audience to your website or lure potential prospects with your design portfolio.
