The 6 Best Stained Glass Designs to Beautify Your Home

Using stained glass designs in your home can take your indoor decor to the next level. Check out these six beautiful ideas to get started.

Adding new windows to your home brings one of the highest returns on investment at nearly 85%. Even if you live with your new windows for years, you could end up getting 85% of the value back when you go to sell your home.

If you want to make your home more beautiful and add a little value, go one step further and consider some interesting stained glass designs.
Here are 6 design styles you should consider for your home.

1. Geometric

One of the most frequent styles of stained glass you'll find anywhere will have geometric patterns. Squares inside of squares or diamonds inside of diamonds is a common style of stained glass that looks beautiful in any home.
When you're working with a stained glass artist, they will likely have different drawings and patterns from previous projects. Choosing from a geometric pattern that they've worked with before will allow you to be sure you get something great and that it's done on schedule.

2. Landscape

Simple landscapes look lovely when interpreted in stained glass. A stained glass landscape can be reflective of the landscape you're in, or in a city home, be a beacon of calm that reminds you of another environment.
The great thing about stained glass is that a simple landscape doesn't necessarily have to be rendered realistically. Landscapes in stained glass can essentialize color in a way that gets right to the point of the feeling you're trying to invoke.

3. Figurative

Stained glass with simple figures or a stained glass portrait can be a lovely way to show tribute to someone you love or evoke a certain emotion. Stained glass figures in churches have been making people feel something for centuries. You could show the same respect for a loved one or an important figure in your life through stained glass.
If you're a religious person, this could be the opportunity to pay respect to your favorite saint. A stained glass window could be made in tribute of any religion at all, from the east to the west.

4. Mosaic

A simple mosaic pattern would work well in a home that had a contemporary style. Small squares of many different colors could be arranged symmetrically into rows that bring a colorful beam of light into your home.
A mosaic is a great way to engage a large window that gets lots of natural light or to fill a piece of interior molding the separates a space.

5. Modernist

Take a page out of a Frank Lloyd Wright book and add some modernist design to your home. Using muted colors, simple curves and symmetrical pattern, you can give your home a cool vintage style.
You could copy one of the many famous Wright designs or use his work as an inspiration to make your own unique window.

6. Floral

Floral patterns are a bright and whimsical way to design a stained glass window. While they may have had their heyday in the 60s and 70s, they're making a serious comeback.
