Windows are an important aesthetic element in your home. They add style and character, and also have the practical purpose of letting in light and fresh area. While windows come in many different shapes and sizes, perhaps one of the most interesting types is transom windows. Transom windows look beautiful on their own, but can be even further enhanced with the addition of stained glass. Below, we’ve shared some fun and interesting transom stained glass ideas for your Fort Collins home.


Why Update Your Transoms with Stained Glass?

Transoms are small window cut outs used to increase the brightness of a room by letting in extra light. Sometimes, they’re located above larger windows, but most often they’re found above doorways and archways.

While transom windows are an interesting feature on their own, they can be tremendously enhanced with stained glass. Transom stained glass inserts allow you to:

  • Obtain privacy without blocking light
  • Make your transoms stand out more so they don’t fade into the background
  • Add depth and texture to the wall
  • Create an interesting focal point for the room
  • Avoid the use of tacky blinds and curtains

Stained glass is an incredibly versatile medium. It can be clear or colorless, traditional or modern, and personalized in a variety of ways. Here are some interesting transom stained glass ideas for your Fort Collins home:
