Kaca Cerminan Status Sosial
Pada era Tudor lah kaca pertama kali digunakan di rumah-rumah. Kaca merupakan sebuah benda mewah pada masa itu sehingga pemakaian banyak kaca di jendela rumah akan mencerminkan status kekayaan pemiliknya. Saat itu sangat sulit membuat potongan-potongan besar kaca sehingga panel yang digunakan biasanya kecil dengan pola silang yang disebut lattice. “Maka, salah satu karakter yang harus Anda terapkan untuk mengusung tema tudor pada hunian adalah banyak memasang kaca-kaca di berbagai sisi bangunan,” ujar Astried. Meskipun kini arti penerapan kaca bukan lagi sebagai cerminan kekayaan, tetapi setidaknya kaca tersebut menjadi ciri khas gaya rumah tudor.
