My customers place leaded stained glass windows in rooms all over their houses, as eye-catching decoration or sometimes replacing previous windows.
This is one my Customer reuse ideas pages, with a peek into interior design in Kitchens and dining rooms, Living rooms, Bathrooms, Bedrooms, Stairwells and Hallways, providing examples of how you could integrate these beautiful antiques into your home.
Kitchens, dining rooms and kitchen diners
The room in which we cook our food and eat our food is sometimes the same, and sometimes a separate location. I have examples of various configurations of kitchens and dining rooms, including before and after photos, on the Kitchens with stained glass page.
It’s interesting to see a combination of windows that I rescue from different places and which my customers select and put together, in this case a sun burst and a rose:
The new home for these two pairs, hanging in the windows, adds to the views of the Colorado skyline:
Kev bought these opaque windows which I had photographed vertically, and turned them on their side to go behind his sofa:
The diamond focus in the windows goes well with the natural colours outside in this photo.
The window below, with a rose as the focal point, was originally from Bournemouth. It stayed in the UK and has a new home in Norfolk:
A porthole between rooms
Isn’t this a great use for a round window – a view from one room to another. If you look closely, you’ll notice that the glass isn’t completely clear – the circular centre is rippled, unlike the panes around the edges:
I have more circular windows coming in occasionally – have a look at the Round window category to see what’s currently for sale.
I’ve received so many photos of my customers’ bathrooms, that I couldn’t resist creating a separate Bathrooms page to show them all off.
I have a few examples of people using stained glass to decorate and provide light in bedrooms:
Blue and yellow ribbons
A combination of old and new
There’s quite a story to Mike’s partially remade window…
…read all about it in my Customer idea of the year 2018 blog post.
Don’t these windows, on either side of this beautiful bed, look great:
A tall divider
This tall window was originally a side panel to a front door in Salt, East Sussex:
It’s now a unique internal stairwell room divider in Florida, USA:
For similar tall windows currently for sale, have a look through my 1 metre + (40 inch +) vertical page.
An unusual bannister
This barrier at the top of a set of stairs is pretty amazing!
Climbing the stairs
This floral window is a classic top light – the kind I come across quite often – nice, but not hugely unusual. That is, until it gets paired some other windows and they’re used to decorate a stairwell – doesn’t this look great!?
A view at the top
And here’s another great example of stained glass in a stairwell – three identical floral windows in the same frame:
Hallways and doorways
Isn’t this a wonderful site on entering a house!
There is so much to look at in this window I sold to Mary in Cornwall – a real mixture of different types of textured and coloured glass:
I don’t know that this is actually a hallway, but it feels like it could be…
Geometric windows like this vary so much, but I have a nice range of them available.
Above a bench
I imagine this to be a room where you might sit down to take off your shoes and coat when arriving home. (I might be wrong!):
Window integrated into a door
I delivered this old sash window to Paula in Westgate-on-Sea, and she put it in her door!
A floral door insert
Susie inserted a floral window into the top panel of this door:
I’m wondering if there are new locations I haven’t seen yet? How about a laundry room? Or an airing cupboard filled with sheets and towels? Browse through the windows by style, and see what inspires you.
