Stained Glass Houston
Although most people consider stained glass to be all about beauty and elegance – and it certainly is that – it can also have some very practical benefits. For residents of Houston, stained glass of our handcrafted quality adds value to a home or commercial building. It can also add privacy and uniqueness to a home’s entryway or bathrooms, and a feeling of exclusivity to a salon, spa, office, or high-end restaurant. And it can block an unappealing view, replacing it with something stunning, without blocking the natural flow of light into the building at the same time.
All our Houston stained glass panels are manufactured and installed to local building codes and meet the most modern energy efficiency standards. As the largest stained glass studio in the U.S. today, we have produced and installed custom stained glass windows for more than 12,000 satisfied customers to date. Owner Martin Faith emigrated from Scotland over 25 years ago. He brought his native land’s stained glass expertise with him. Over the past 25 years, Martin has used traditional methods as a starting point for developing his own process. It includes modern methods for hiding the points where the leading (known as “caming”) joins together, darkening the lead to an antique looking finish, and a proprietary polishing process which makes Scottish Stained Glass windows glow, even without the help of the sun.
Houston Custom Stained Glass Design Process: It Starts With You
Our stained glass designers work one-on-one with clients, taking in the client’s existing architecture and décor, and the client’s personal tastes. During the initial design consultation, clients have the opportunity to discuss their ideas and look at many samples, sketches, and photographs, while collaborating with one of our local Houston designers.
Back in our studio, the custom design process continues using CAD and photo-shop technologies to create beautiful works of art that exactly conform to clients’ needs and specifications. Please take a good look at the detail and quality shown in the lovely photographs below, or visit our design galleries to see more examples of our workmanship.
Stunning Custom Stained Glass for Your Houston, Texas Home
Of course, you take great pride in your Houston home, carefully finding the perfect furnishings that delight you and the artwork that inspires you. If you are looking to add beauty, value, and distinctive style to your entryway, windows, doors, sidelights, transoms, and skylights, we hope you’ll consider us. We would love to earn your business. Over the years we’ve found that our residential clients truly appreciate vividly colored stained glass but generally prefer something a bit more subtle and elegant for their homes. Our most popular type of residential stained glass is actually colorless, made with frosted, textured, and gorgeous beveled stained glass. This works with any color scheme and lets in as much natural light as possible.

We find many Houstonians have long admired stained glass, but have never realized how affordable, practical and easily installed it is. Our prices start as low as $80 per square foot. As for the practicality aspects, stained glass windows afford greater privacy where necessary, or block an undesirable view with the use of textured glass. All this, while still letting the natural light stream through into your home.

Houston has some of the most beautiful, intricate traditional stained glass windows featured throughout their homes and historic commercial buildings. Stained glass is often considered as an antique, traditional art form that many see as outdated. Although these pieces can reflect powerful imagery and interesting art movements of the past, stained glass can actually be utilized in modern applications in Houston homes and commercial buildings. Stained glass artisans are starting to use this exclusive medium as contemporary art forms in innovative ways that artists haven’t utilized before.
