I am having an extension on the side of my house to make an extra bedroom/girly room for myself. It will have a main window approx 5ft 6" wide by 4ft high and also a side window 4ft x 4ft. Planning people have said the small window on the side has to be obscure and non-opening. I am thinking of a stained glass window - does anyone have any experience of these? Will I get fed up with it? Will it not let enought light through? Is this a good idea in a bedroom or is it more suitable for a landing? Help anyone with any ideas - also help to choose the right design- also thought of bevelled glass design i.e. like a front door panel - just put in the window frame. The window will be upvc and will have to have plastic running down the middle to look like two panes. Thanks anyone - this is not proving to be easy!

I'm not sure about whether most stained glass windows of that size would meet building regulations in a modern house.
There were a lot of regulations on energy efficiency brought in a couple of years back and that rather complicates stained glass.
It's not impossible though it might be a bit steep have a look at this for example:
