In fact, stained glass windows have been making a slow and steady come back. Which is why, today, we have gathered 60 examples to show you how amazing and beautiful this art is.

Incorporate stained glass windows into your contemporary home
Why add stained glass windows to your interior?
There are a few reasons why you should use stained glass of any kind in your modern home. Here are some of the benefits you get with using stained glass:
- It brings uniqueness to your home. Custom stained glass windows can be so versatile. All you have to do is find someone to create them for you. You can ask them to create all kinds of patterns for you, which express your personality. What’s more, if you have a family crest or want to have your family’s initials on your windows, that is completely doable. On the other hand, you can also try and make them yourself.
- It keeps away nosy people. The good news is that stained glass is not only beautiful, it is also not see through. Meaning all of those nosy neighbors are going to have to mind their own business, because they will definitely not be able to see what’s going on inside your house. And, for some people, this is a big plus.
- Stained glass windows bring the colors into your room. Have you ever seen the sun shining through stained glass windows. Trust me, it is beautiful. This type of windows will create a psychedelic, relaxing feeling into your home with all the colors of the rainbow.
