A Closer Look at Beveled Glass vs. Leaded Glass


Stained glass has been around for centuries, creating endless styles and glass options. When homeowners are discussing what type of custom stained glass they’d like for their home, it can be overwhelming learning about all the different choices. Some of the more common options for residential property are beveled and leaded glass. Both are characterized by different aesthetics and benefits, making it important to learn more about these categories. Beveled and leaded glass often go hand-in-hand, offering a gorgeous look for any style of home.

The Benefits of Beveled and Leaded Glass for Your Denver Home

Beveled glass is typically made by taking thick glass and creating an angled surface cut, also known as a bevel cut, around the entire piece. The result of the angeled cut creates a prism, offering beautiful color diffractions that highlight the glass as well as creating a spectrum of colors that aren’t present with clear float glass. Beveled glass can be incorporated into numerous stained glass designs, often acting as the centerpiece or focal point. Beveled glass is typically pre-made with a great selection to choose from. Custom bevel glass is also available for a higher price. Leaded glass refers to clear, textured glass. A leaded glass design refers to stained glass with the absence of color. Leaded glass is really popular among homes due to their privacy benefit. Leaded glass designs with bevel work offer elegance, beauty, and privacy.
