Beveled stained glass for your Kansas City home.Martin Faith
Stained glass comes in an amazing variety of different styles and colors. That is one of the secrets to its enduring popularity over the years. However, not everyone wants vividly colored glass becoming the focal point of a room. And many people, although they love the look of stained glass in a church, cannot imagine that sort of thing in their own homes. We understand. But if you are a stained glass fan, do not give up on the idea of owning a stained glass window. There are many options that would work in your home!
The good news is that there are other options for stained glass windows that incorporate clear glass, yet can be just as beautiful and eye catching (not to mention light catching) as colored stained glass. Specifically, we’re talking about beveled stained glass. For residents of Kansas City, beveled stained glass is a phenomenal option for the home because it uses clear glass that can fit in with absolutely any color scheme or decor.
By now, you might be wondering, “what exactly is beveled stained glass?” So let’s talk about bevels! Usually, a piece of glass is cut at a 90 degree angle, making a straight edge. Most stained glass pieces are done that way. But with beveled glass, the edges are actually cut in a specific angle that catches and refracts the light differently. Beveled glass gives a lovely sense of texture to a stained glass window, and when the sun shines through it, it will actually create prisms of lovely colors in a way that normal glass does not.
In our stained glass studio in Kansas City, beveled stained glass is one of our most popular requests. It creates a classic, slightly antique look to a stained glass window that our customers truly seem to love. Beveled stained glass is perfect for any area where you get a lot of sun, because that will show it off to its best advantage. This might be your entryway, your living room, perhaps even your bathroom to offer more privacy and more style at the same time.
