A beautiful new basement view.

A beautiful new basement view.

When we mention basement stained glass, Colorado Springs customers are usually hugely appreciative. Finally, they say, a way to cover that ugly view!

What ugly view are they referring to? Why, the one you’ll see out of those tiny well windows in your basement. Of course, by rights you shouldn’t even call that sight a view at all. What do you see outside your basement windows? Metal wells? The bottoms of shrubs? Nothing at all, because those rainstorms have covered the windows with grime and dirt?

With the addition of basement stained glass, Colorado Springs homeowners can cover up that ugliness and make the windows as beautiful as the rest of their lovely remodeled and beautifully finished basements. The one saving grace of those tiny basement windows? Well, they do let in what might be the only source of natural light.

Without basement stained glass, Colorado Springs residents might have covered those windows with curtains or shades. But that is really too bad, because it does block the sunlight, making the basement even darker than it already was. With basement stained glass Colorado Springs basements let the light flow through.

If light is an issue in your basement, make sure you mention that when you work with one of our custom stained glass designers. That issue will make a difference to the type of glass used in your windows. If we were to use dark colors, they would also block the light. The type of basement stained glass Colorado Springs clients usually choose is what we call leaded stained glass, made of frosted and beveled glass. This will block the ugly “view” and let in as much light as possible.

When we install your new custom-designed, hand-built stained glass windows, they will be installed to the inside of the existing pane of glass, to protect them from the elements and the splattering dirt, leaves, and mud. (However, to keep them looking gorgeous for years, the exteriors of these windows will occasionally need to be cleaned.)

What style or design is the next thing to be considered. Because we work custom on each and every stained glass window or door panel we build, you can have any style that will match with, complement, or enhance your basement’s décor. And by the way, stained glass can look fantastic in other areas of your basement as well, such as any interior or exterior doors. Some clients have even commissioned stained glass panels for the ceiling, to replace those ugly plastic lighting panels that many basements are furnished with.

So if you are looking for basement stained glass, Colorado Springs or any of the nearby towns and suburbs, we hope you will contact us today for an appointment. We’d love to show you just what our lovely custom product can do for your basement.
