Average Cost of Professionally Installed Stained Glass

It is a common misconception that installing stained glass is a wildly expensive undertaking reserved for the very wealthy. In reality, however, stained glass is a great decorative touch for windows, and it will generally cost less than you might expect. It is important to understand that the cost of any project depends on the size as well as the installation type, and no two projects are exactly the same. However, homeowners usually pay between $520 and $730 on average to install stained glass windows in a single room.

Costs of Customized Stained Glass

One thing to keep in mind when choosing stained glass for your home is that customized glass is a lot more expensive. If your budget allows, you can have a beautiful landscape or a specific color scheme painted, or you can order special panels that fit into a custom window shape. While this is more expensive overall, it can make for a one-of-a-kind space in your home. For aspiring artists and creative types, designing your own stained glass can be a fun activity that expresses your personal style.

Installation Factors to Keep in Mind

Beyond the cost of the stained glass itself, professional installation services can very wildly depending on a number of different factors. The biggest is the type of installation that you choose for your home. If you want the stained glass windows to stand alone, you will need to build a specific frame for it within the existing window. A far more affordable option is to place the stained glass over the window and seal it with silicone to keep it firmly in place on the interior.
