Funky Casino Stained Glass Ideas

Posted November 20th, 2019 by Martin Faith

When it comes to decorating a casino–any designer would agree–bigger is better. Since casinos are designed to pull in and keep people inside–they simply must be larger than life. This is as true for casinos in Las Vegas as it is to those that we have here in Colorado. From casinos up in Central City to those around us here in Colorado Springs–many have not only bright, over-the-top designs but an Old West theme as well. This is why stained glass, especially in funky, unique places is such a great fit. Below we have listed a handful of locations where this one-of-a-kind stained glass would fit perfectly.   

Four Great Places For Stained Glass in Casinos

1. Ceiling Stained Glass: When you put stained glass on a casino ceiling it is a real stunner. Bright, bold and oftentimes covering places with a ton of traffic–it will wow gamblers.

2. Stained Glass Dividers: Great for privacy and as a wow-factor, stained glass dividers are the perfect fit for casinos looking for a stylish way to section off gambling spaces.

3. Stained Glass Light Shades: Casinos always have a lot of light in them to help keep gamblers up and spending money. Since these lights are everywhere and are meant to draw attention to themselves, stained glass light shades are a way to make these fixtures really pop.

4. Stained Glass Bar Signs: Every casino has a bar here in Colorado Springs which is why stained glass bars signs are so useful. They can denote the bar area brightly and boldly while setting their entire casino apart for having such unique stained glass features.

Is Historical Restoration of Stained Glass a Smart Decision for Your Commercial Space?

Posted October 15th, 2019 by Martin Faith

Stained glass is not just something that was put into churches here in Denver. Around the turn of the 20th-century stained glass in the US was put in all types of buildings. From retail stores to banks and bars–stained glass was a ubiquitous trend. This same stained glass in commercial spaces here in Denver is now turning 100 years old or more. Which means restoration is imminent. Beyond the fact that stained glass needs to be restored or it could fall into permanent disrepair–what reasons would commercial spaces here in the Denver area have to restore these historical treasures? As it turns out, quite a few! We have listed some of the most compelling reasons below.

Restoring Commercial Stained Glass Strengthens Community Ties

When we work with churches to restore stained glass windows, often the entire community in which the church resides comes together. Commercial spaces are no different. If your stained glass is over 100 years old, it is often considered historical, if not antique. There are community organizations and even grants available to help commercial spaces, just like yours, restore antique stained glass, because it benefits the community at large. 

Restoring Commercial Stained Glass Attract New Clients

Stained glass is lovely and there is a reason it was installed across industries–it attracts people. Whatever your stained glass looks like now is probably just a shadow of what it will look like once restored. When you invest the time and money to have the stained glass in your Denver commercial space restored, you will surely attract new customers entranced by your stunning restoration piece.

Restoring Commercial Stained Glass Preserves A Piece of Denver History

The fact of the matter is, stained glass windows, especially in commercial spaces, are a part of Denver’s rich history. It is likely that some of them were made by burgeoning artisans or studios in Denver’s past and have a good story behind them. More to the point, if your Denver location has stained glass in it, it was likely a lively hub back in the “pioneer” days. By restoring the historic stained glass then, you are doing your part preserving the amazing “Wild West” past Denver is known for.
