Custom transom windows

With transom stained glass, Houston homeowners can finally take full advantage of these interesting windows. Transom windows have been around for centuries. Their original purpose was to let more light and more air into a space, but these days most of them are non-functioning, meaning they don’t open. But they do let more light into a room and add an interesting appearance as well.

It would be unusual to add curtains or shades to transoms, because they sit either atop other windows or doors, or are placed high up near the ceiling. So why transom stained glass, Houston? Simple! It adds beauty, interest, uniqueness, and style to a room. It can take a room from merely well-decorated to wow. And if you love your home and love home décor, perhaps that wow factor, those items that really show off your great taste, is exactly what you are looking for.

But along with the beauty and style it brings to a room, transom stained glass in Houston can serve some practical purposes. We mentioned that transoms are built to add more light. But what if a room, your living room perhaps, gets too much light at certain times of the day. Too much glare, too eye strain. And as we mentioned, you aren’t likely to put shades all the way up there. But with stained glass, you can block just as much light as you want and make that room more magnificent and more comfortable all at the same time.
