How To Display And Care For A Stained Glass Window Panel

If you're looking to give a room in your house a new decorative focal point, consider enhancing a center window with a stained glass window panel. The panel's vibrant colors and creative design will give any space instant visual interest.

Since there are various stained glass window panel designs to choose from, take your favorite holiday or time of year into consideration when picking the perfect one for your home. For instance, if you're a Christmas lover, buy a panel featuring bright red cardinal designs accented by green holly. The panels typically have black wrought iron details as well, giving it a slightly rustic look.

Although it looks somewhat festive, the cardinal pattern will also appeal to bird enthusiasts and can be displayed in your window year-round. You can also purchase a few different panel designs and rotate them throughout the changing seasons. The stained glass panels make thoughtful and beautiful gifts for any almost any special occasion, such as holidays, birthdays, bridal showers, weddings, housewarmings, and anniversaries. 

To keep the panel looking its best, here are some tips for displaying and caring for it.


Stained glass window panels come in a range of shapes and sizes, such as ovals, squares, and circles, depending on the type of window you'd like to display it in. They may also hang either vertically or horizontally, and feature a variety of colors, such as bright blue, red, green, purple, orange, or yellow.

The panels typically have a chain so that you can hang them from a suction cup hook on the window. When picking the perfect spot for hanging, look for a window that receives the most sunlight throughout the day, so that the artwork and colors are illuminated. 

Also consider what room and window get  the most of either morning or afternoon sun, and what times of day you'll be in the space. Although the panels will look pretty at any time, they're most charming when natural light beams through them. 


Since the decorative window panels are constructed of individually colored tempered glass pieces that are soldered together, they have to be handled with care, especially during moves. Protect your panel with bubble wrap and then place it inside a sturdy box before transporting it. 

If the panel gets dusty while hanging in the window, take it down and gently wipe it with a soft microfiber cloth to remove any debris. You can also use a spray glass cleaner if you need extra cleaning power.
