Transom stained glass for your Fort Collins home.

Transom stained glass for your Fort Collins home.

If you have been considering a location for your stained glass windows, you might consider transom stained glass. Transom windows usually rest above existing windows or entryway doors in order to bring in more light into your home. Transoms are a lovely, interesting architectural detail that has been in use for centuries to bring in more light, and in some cases more air flow into the house. Transom stained glass can take those interesting windows and make them into a major design element in the room, one that adds so much style and elegance that you won’t believe you didn’t do it sooner.

Installing transom stained glass in these windows can add timeless beauty to your home. One place many Fort Collins residents have a transom window is right above their front doors. This window is usually either rectangular or half-moon shaped. It does not open, it is merely there to let light into what can be a dark area of the home.

If you add transom stained glass to that window, don’t forget matching stained glass in the sidelights on either side of the front door, or perhaps in the door itself.
