Beveled glasses capture lights in a unique way, creating a wide range of colors and enhancing the visual impact of the glass. Window and door manufacturers often use beveled glass to improve simple design. The skillful arrangement of beveled glass, along with other decorative design elements increases both the visual appeal and the value of the final product.

You can often find examples of beveled glasses in transom windows, door side lights and large, ornate front doors.

The arrangement of multiple pieces of beveled glasses within an entrance way creates an image of sophistication and style. Although beveled glass is traditionally plain cut glass, there has been a trend to use this technique on colored textured glass to enhance a particular design. The use of textured glass with a beveled edge increases the options available for designers to create new and interesting glass pieces.

When purchasing beveled glass, consider the frame as well as the glass itself. It is critical that the glass has exact same depth of beveled edge visible on all four sides. Careful measurement and skilled installers will ensure the glass is securely installed.
