Beveled stained glass for a unique design.

Kansas City is a tradition that doesn’t seem like it is ever going out of style. It is a true classic. If you are looking for a stained glass piece that will let in more light and add timeless beauty to your home, beveled stained glass could be your answer.

What is Kansas City beveled stained glass? Well, you probably already know what stained glass is. So the beveled part of it refers to clear leaded glass pieces that are cut into shapes with angled edges (bevels) and added to a window composition. The results can be stunning and extraordinary. Because the beveled angle catches the sun’s light in a completely different way from plain, flat glass. When the light shines through the bevel, it refracts into prisms containing all the colors of the rainbow, colors that are not ordinarily found in clear glass.

Usually, these windows are a combination of the beveled glass and regular straight cut glass, and the beveled pieces are attached in a pattern that really shows off the design.


So with beveled stained glass, Kansas City homes get the sunlight and these dancing rainbows of light in their rooms. Not to mention the uplift and enhancement in the overall décor of that room. Nothing says style, taste, and class like custom stained glass in general and beveled stained glass in particular.

When talking about home décor with the very particular, style loving citizens of Kansas City, beveled stained glass is one of the kinds we frequently suggest for specific situations. If you want more privacy without losing any light, it’s the perfect solution.
