Beveled stained glass for a unique style.

Beveled stained glass for a unique style.

For homeowners looking for something unique in Colorado Springs, beveled stained glass might be the perfect fit. It has a classy and classic look that many of our clients really love for a variety of reasons.

First of all, beveled stained glass is usually (but not always) one component of a colorless stained glass window, that actually adds some color in an unexpected way. When the sunlight shines through the window and hits the beveled edges of the glass pieces, the light is refracted. The result is rainbow colors, maybe even rainbow colors dancing through your rooms. This refraction of the light allows colors to emerge that are not usually existent in plain, clear glass.

In Colorado Springs, beveled stained glass is a way to add beauty and elegance to any window, to any room, to any style of home. But what exactly is beveled glass, you might be wondering?

This is a thick glass that is specially made to have the edges cut on an angle. Whereas most glass, for instance the pane currently residing in your window, has the edges cut ninety degrees, beveled glass uses a very different angle. And when these angled edges are joined together in a stained glass window, the results are dramatic, eye-catching, and yet subtle enough to fit in any room at all. You entryway. Your dining room. Your hallway. Even your bathroom. In fact, any place you would love a stained glass window.


To see some of the many beveled stained glass windows we’ve already created for customers, click here. Feel free to click on any of the thumbnail photos on that page to enlarge it and see the detail. And notice, particularly in that top photo, the tiny hints of color in the glass. That is what we were discussing earlier: those colors are not really “in” the glass, but created by the sun’s light hitting and passing through the beveled edges. This is the same way that cut crystal will refract light.

Now, imagine your Colorado Springs beveled stained glass windows! Gorgeous! Definitely something that can take your décor one giant, sophisticated step further, wouldn’t you agree?
