Creating the Perfect Look for Your Kitchen & Cabinet Stained Glass


The kitchen is the center of activity in every home. It’s the place where you cook Thanksgiving dinner, gather with your family to share stories about your day, and spend time preparing delicious food for the people you love. Every family deserves a beautiful kitchen in their home and stained glass is the perfect addition.

A stained glass window in your kitchen, dining room, or kitchen cabinets can really make your home shine. Stained glass is an elegant feature that can improve both the functionality and appearance of your kitchen. It can give you that exclusive privacy you need to separate your home from your neighbors and make your dining experiences more comfortable. And it’s a great way to let some extra light into your home.

No matter what style you’re hoping to create for your kitchen, whether it’s a quaint country farmhouse aesthetic or a chic industrial look, we can design the perfect window to match. Below, we’ve provided some advice to help you get started with your project.

How to Beautify Your Kitchen with Stained Glass

There are numerous ways you can go about incorporating stained glass into your kitchen design. However, whatever you choose to do, it’s important to be intentional from the very start. The more intention you put into planning your design, the more cohesive and curated your kitchen will look. Remember, you want to create that model home look, so thorough planning is essential.

To get started, you’ll want to identify areas of your kitchen that could use improvement. Does your dining room lack luster and need that extra special something to make the room together? Or do your wood cabinets look old and outdated? Once you’ve identified the weaknesses in your kitchen design, it’s time to move on to the next step of finding the perfect stained glass window to help you achieve the effect you desire.

Replacing Your Kitchen Windows with Privacy Glass

If your kitchen lacks privacy because of an exposed window, you could install a textured or colorful stained glass panel to remedy the situation. Textured and colored glass creates privacy by distorting views from the other side. Yet unlike traditional kitchen blinds, they won’t block out the sun.

If you think you could benefit from privacy stained glass in your kitchen, we recommend researching some popular styles online like prairie style, beveled glass, and art deco. This will give you an idea of what styles you do and do not like.

Next, you can make a decision about color. Do you have a white kitchen that could benefit from a splash of color? Or does your kitchen’s neutral color palette demand something more versatile? If so, then you may want to consider a leaded glass window instead of a traditional stained glass design.

Adding Stained Glass to Kitchen Cabinets

Cabinets, especially kitchen cabinets, can often have very generic wooden faces.  Adding stained glass faces to those cabinets is a functional and beautiful upgrade that can make your kitchen sparkle. Whether you merely want to do one cabinet as a decoration or you want to do your entire kitchen, Scottish Stained Glass can create beautiful, custom stained glass designs that match the look and feel you are trying to achieve.

Here is a beautiful example of how we took some truly antique cabinet doors and were able to replace their deteriorating wooden faces. Selecting a broad range of earth tones for the opaque glass and some beveled glass with an amber hue, these windows fit extremely well as the centerpiece of a set of kitchen cabinets.

Here is a beautiful example of clear glass kitchen cabinets. While many people think of stained glass as having a number of colors, clear stained glass with different textures is some of our most beautiful work. To learn more about how we design your custom pieces, check out our design page.
