There are many opportunities to use stained glass panels inside your home. Here are a few suggestions on where to use stained glass for updating or remodeling your home:

Windows. A panel can be used instead of shutters or drapes to provide privacy or hide an unpleasant view, without blocking out natural light. The colored glass can also add color to a room when the panel is in a location where sunlight can pass through it.

Room divider. A panel can be used as a room divider to separate two living areas instead of putting up a permanent wall. You can either pick a design that blends in with the surrounding furnishing or that stand out as the focal point.

Doors. Use a panel to give an old entry way a face lift. Just by hanging a panel to the side light of an old door will seemingly give the door a new life. If you are handy with tools you can substitute the side light glass with the panel.
