Installing leaded or stained glass in the kitchen offers a great design opportunity as well as a solution to privacy. It not only looks beautiful, it can also provide the privacy that is required while letting in daylight. Additionally, in the daylight, the color scheme of the kitchen will be accented by the natural colors created by the leaded or stained glass.

Stained glass can be fit to your current window frame, or a new window with a new frame can be created. You can achieve the look of custom, made-to-order windows by purchasing collections that are in stock. Popular designs include Art Deco, Art Nouveau, Frank Lloyd Wright, and other classic motifs. Floral patterns and landscapes are also popular looks for stained glass.

Antique pieces of all styles and sizes are available, and can be restored when needed. Reclaimed stained glass is becoming rare; it cannot be recreated because of the unique glass styles, and each piece is custom.

Smaller budget options for a stained glass window effect are stained glass sun catchers, which add warmth and color to any kitchen window. Commission a custom piece for an upscale look, or create your own with a simple kit purchased at a craft store.

One of the more functional locations for a stained glass application would be the windows located above the sink, which may overlook an undesirable view or a neighboring house. Adding stained glass will let in natural light while blocking an undesirable view.

If custom is for you, connect with a maker who specializes in kitchen window design and incorporates art-glass for a personalized, custom-made product. Adding stained glass to your kitchen gives you a way to make the space a reflection of you that will increase the value of your time spent in the kitchen.
