Transom stained glass designs


Transom stained glass designs

Once upon a time, a transom window was added to a building to add more light and more ventilation. That was back in the days when windows were much smaller and fewer than they are now. But even today, although few transoms actually open, these windows are still used to let in more light and add interest to a space.

With transom stained glass, Denver residents can take full advantage of the design potential of transom windows. But before we get into that, perhaps you are scratching your head and wondering what the blankety-blank is a transom window?

Have you ever seen a small rectangular or half moon shaped window above a door, such as a front door to a home? That is one example of a transom window, perhaps the most common example. Transom windows sit atop other windows or doors, or are perched near the ceiling of a room. And as we said, their purpose is to let in more light. But with transom stained glass, Denver homeowners can turn them into pieces of art that pull together the whole look and feel of the room. And what if the room is too sunny? It’s possible! Then transom stained glass can block a bit of that sun and make the room both more gorgeous and more comfortable.

With transom stained glass, Denver clients choose their own styles and designs. Some prefer clear glass with a bit of color mixed in, as in the Mission style dating back to the early twentieth century. Others choose frosted and beveled glass for a colorless yet incredibly elegant appearance that will add interest to the room without clashing or being too predominant. And yet others ask for colorful designs, adding a vibrant pop of interest to the room.
