Custom transom stained glass

Transom stained glass, Houston art lovers are discovering, can make a phenomenal difference to the look of any room. If you have transom windows in your home or commercial space and you have never considered adding stained glass, let’s talk about this intriguing possibility for added beauty and style.

Transom windows are a popular architectural detail in homes and commercial spaces, usually designed to let more light into a space. Transom windows can sit alone on a wall near the ceiling, above another row of normal height windows, or above a doorway. In fact, the transom window some people have above their front door is a very popular place to add stained glass.

With transom stained glass, Houston residents can still take advantage of that extra light, but they can also turn their windows into a beautiful design feature in the room as well. Transom windows are usually ignored, therefore they can be a bit dull. With the addition of custom stained glass, they can really add to the room’s décor.

When it comes to transom stained glass, Houston clients usually prefer it to be of the leaded variety, colorless with the insertion of beveled glass in the design as well. However, because we do work custom, just because other clients like this type of stained glass doesn’t mean you have to. Your transom windows can be made with as much or as little color as you like, in whatever style you like, using whatever types of glass you like. Antique style? Déco style? Mission or Prairie style? Contemporary style? Your own style?

Although we do send one of our Houston designers to meet with you, to take the measurements of your windows and sketch up the design, in a sense you are the designer as well. After all, what’s the point of custom transom stained glass, Houston, if you can’t have it exactly the way you want it?

With transom windows, privacy is not usually an issue. But if it is, then our custom leaded stained glass transom windows are an excellent solution. Add privacy without sacrificing light.

If you are looking for custom transom stained glass, Houston or any of the outlying suburbs or towns, we hope you will give us a call today. We know what an incredible difference transom stained glass can make to a room and we’d love the chance to show you.
