Hanging stained glass pieces are perfect for non-permanent areas.

Have you always wanted a stained glass piece, but haven’t decided on the perfect location? If this sounds like you, hanging stained glass might be the perfect fit for your stained glass needs. Stained glass hanging pieces can be freely moved around from one area to another and hung in any area you like. This gives you many more options when it comes to placement of your stained glass.

Hanging stained glass is dramatic, gorgeous, and . . . portable! Because instead of having it permanently installed into one particular window, it can be hung in front of the window. You will still get the fabulous play of light coming through the stained glass, but you will be able to more easily change its location. For instance, if you redecorate your living room, and the stained glass panel no longer fits with your new décor, you can easily move it to your bedroom, dining room, or anywhere else you think it would look great.

For most people, the only hanging stained glass they have seen are those mass produced little round stained glass pieces built to hang on your deck or in your kitchen window. Birds seem to be really popular with that type of stained glass. But when you work with Houston Stained Glass, what you will be getting is very far from mass produced. It will be custom designed to your exact specifications and tastes, in any size, shape, style, colors, etc. Would you love something Deco inspired? Or perhaps a Celtic knot? Or some type of design or image that has personal meaning to you?

Your hanging stained glass can very easily become a valuable family heirloom, and the great part is that it is very easily passed down from generation to generation, unlike, say, a large stained glass picture window. And it will make a stunning, dramatic impact in any home, regardless of who inherits it. It also makes unique and unforgettable gift for a wedding or housewarming or just about any other occasion where you’re looking for something truly “different.”

What are your ideas for hanging stained glass, and where in your home or office would you like to hang it? Of course, it doesn’t have to be in a window at all! Stained glass also makes a striking wall hanging, especially with one of those art lights focused on it to show off the detail.
