25 Unique Stained Glass Windows That Will Add A Pop Of Color To Your Home

Stained glass windows are a beautiful addition to any home, especially if you want to add a pop of color or something unique. When the sun hits one of those windows just right, the color will bounce throughout the entire room. A little color, or a lot, you can get almost any feel you want if you add some stained glass into your home. Not sure where to put that colorful window? They look great in doorways, kitchens, attics, and even bathrooms. You can use them in any room you want to add color and more natural light.

Stained glass windows have been around as far back as the seventh century, according to The Stained Leaded Glass Company. While most commonly seen in cathedrals and churches, stained glass windows aren't just for religious buildings — if you want to turn your windows into art, this is an excellent way to do it. And, to give you some inspiration, here are 25 stained glass windows that will bring color into your home.

1. A floral feel

This beautiful stained glass window has such a warm and inviting feel. It will add a pop of green and blue to your home while offering a meditative vibe, as it resembles a mandala. This would be an excellent window for a front door or kitchen.

2. Diamonds

The diamond design of this window is simple yet so colorful. Blues, yellow, red, and even green twinkle through this vintage-looking space. You get more natural light, but the stained glass style helps keep people from seeing in clearly, too!

3. Overlooking accent

If you're not ready to commit to an entire stained glass window, try using these bright bursts of color over your entryway. Each time you answer the door or step out to check the mail, you'll be delighted by the prism of light.

4. Broken look

From red to violet, this pair of stained glass windows will have you see rainbows throughout your home. Not only are the colors gorgeous, but the broken glass design is also very unique and eye-catching. This is a great choice for windows in the living room or den.

5. Pop bottle bottoms

This fascinating stained glass window looks almost as though someone took the bottoms from a bunch of old glass bottles and created a window with them (which is something you could probably do if you're in a DIY mood).

6. Full panels of color

You don't have to opt for intricate patterns if you don't want to. This room is proof that stained glass windows can look beautiful simply in solid panels of color.

7. Simply circular

Get creative with the smaller windows in your home, no matter what shape they are. This circular window lets in a ton of colorful light, even though it doesn't take up much space.

8. Delightful door design

Choosing to go with a fully stained glass door on your home is a very bold option and may not be for everyone. Using this for a front door makes it difficult to see who's knocking if you don't have video surveillance, so perhaps try a side or back door instead.

9. Vintage colors

This pretty heart-shaped stained glass window would look lovely paired with a nice orange shag rug. It will add lots of color and vintage vibes to your home, no matter where it's located.
