Stained Glass Window Inspiration is Found Around the World


At Scottish Stained Glass, all of our stained glass windows and doors are custom made. This requires our clients to work with one of our creative and highly experienced stained glass designers – a process we’ve heard over and over that they greatly enjoy.

If you live anywhere near one of our showrooms, our designers prefer to do onsite consultations. They arrive with a mind-boggling array of photos and samples, so you can pick the style, pattern, colors or textures that you want. If you’ve got a unique idea or have seen something that inspires you in a photo, the designer can sketch it up on graph paper, showing you how it will look in your window and providing a cost estimate at the same time.

If you don’t live near one of our offices, we will still work with you via phone, internet, and all manner of other high tech methods to ensure you still get a piece of stained glass that is absolutely perfect – perfectly sized, the exact right colors and designs to satisfy your tastes and complement your décor.

Are you a nature lover, looking to bring the outdoors in? Then perhaps a floral design or our signature Aspen collection would delight.

Do you most appreciate the dramatic lines of the Art Deco movement? Scottish Stained Glass has designed hundreds of Deco inspired designs for admiring customers over the years.

Do you consider yourself an individualist? Do you want something completely different? Our designers will work with you to bring your idea into vividly colored life – or clear, colorless life if that’s what you have in mind. Many people are surprised when they hear that 90% of our stained glass window installations are actually clear, textured glass and not the traditional colored glass!

Whether you have long admired stained glass or are just beginning to learn about (and lust after) this lovely art form, we think fresh inspiration is always a good thing. Feel free to browse our Scottish Stained Glass galleries, to get your creative juices flowing.

While you are considering exactly what style of stained glass you might like, for even more inspiration we wanted to show off a few of the world’s most amazing, history making, timeless classics:

  1. Ten Spectacular Stained Glass Ceilings (We were particularly blown away by the stained glass mural in the Cosmovitral, a botanic garden in Toluca, Mexico)
  2. Most Beautiful Stained Glass in the World (Be prepared to gasp over the photos of France’s Saint Chapelle.)
  3. Amazing Stained Glass from Around the Globe (check out number 8, the World Map Stained Glass Dome in Boston’s Mapparium Building)
