Our stained glass design process turns your vision into reality.

When it comes to stained glass, everyone has a different idea of what they like best. Some people like the more traditional look of antique stained glass. While others prefer a more contemporary look such as clear beveled stained glass. And yet others love the Mission style, influenced by master architect Frank Lloyd Wright.

From Deco to Celtic, from floral to geometric, whatever your vision or your taste is, the experts at Austin Stained Glass make it easy to achieve the look you want. This is entirely due to our custom stained glass design process.

Here is how our stained glass design process works.

You’ll start out with an in-home visit with a Custom Stained Glass Houston designer. Our designers are highly experienced in assisting customers to get the exact windows they want. They are also well versed in helping bring a specific project in on a budget. The designer will show you many photos of patterns we’ve already created, and help you pick what you want.

Your design will be sketched, your windows will be measured, and at this point, we take things to the next level. Using CAD technology, a computerized blueprint of your design is created. You can even see exactly what your new stained glass windows will look like via the magic of a computer rendering. You will approve the final design.

The next step in the stained glass design process happens when the materials arrive in our studio. Your project will be assigned to one highly-trained stained glass artisan. Custom Stained Glass Houston is part of the largest stained glass studio in the country, and we provide all our builders with special training in our proprietary methods.

The artisan assigned to your project will cut each piece of glass by hand, following the computer blueprint exactly. He or she will assemble the window one piece of glass at a time, joining the pieces together with the lead strips that give stained glass it’s characteristic look.

Once your window is finished, so is the stained glass design process. It’s polished and sent to your Houston home to be installed and enjoyed!

Many of our clients tell us the initial process, when they work together with the designer to pick the style, pattern, glass, and colors – if any – is the most fun part of the whole thing. But all of our clients agree on one thing. When their new stained glass windows are actually installed (even though they saw an exact rendering of the final product), they are stunned by how beautiful these windows make their homes.
