Brighten up your home with transom stained glass.

Brighten up your home with transom stained glass.

Do you have any transom windows in your Fort Collins home? If so, you probably appreciate the way they let more light into a room. That is their purpose, architecturally speaking. But what if they let in too much light?

Or what if you have decorated your room but it still needs a little extra “oomph” to make it feel really finished. Transom stained glass is the perfect solution to both issues.

With our custom designed and hand-built transom stained glass, Fort Collins homeowners can add a unique, personalized piece of art to their homes that will add that extra wow factor while continuing to let in the light, or block some of the light if that’s what’s needed. It all depends on what kind of pattern and types of glass you choose for your transom stained glass windows.

But before we go any further, let’s explain transom windows a bit, just in case you are not familiar with the term. Transom is an architectural term, but a transom window is something different. It refers to that small rectangular or half-moon shaped window above your home’s front door, or those windows that are placed above other windows, perhaps near the ceiling in other rooms in your home. Transom windows add interest and light to a room and are quite popular in living rooms. But usually, homeowners don’t do anything interesting with them. Transom stained glass is a way to add color, texture, uniqueness, and interest to those windows in a way no curtain or shade can possible compete with.

Transom stained glass adds a timeless elegance to any room (containing transom windows, of course). Whether you like antique or modern designs, whether you like clear or colored glass, or if you want a combination of frosted and beveled glass, we can sketch it and build it for you.

With over two decades of stained glass experience, we are the Fort Collins transom stained glass experts! If you have been considering adding some stained glass to your home but haven’t been quite sure where you want to put it, why not consider your transom windows? If you do use any beveled glass in the pattern, the play of the sunlight shining through will be stunning, creating prisms of rainbow colored light in your room. This is why beveled glass is such a popular choice for transom stained glass.

But whatever kind of style or glass you choose, we hope you will contact Fort Collins Stained Glass today and set up an appointment with one of our designers.
