Glass is found in all homes, of course, but today’s designers and homeowners are using custom cut glass in a variety of ways. No longer relegated to the bathroom shower doors, glass is used for panel doors, floating shelves, partition walls, wine cellars, tabletops and more. If you’re considering using glass in your next project, don’t be concerned about this material going out of style. While typically associated with modern, contemporary looks, glass is so versatile that it complements any interior.
Glass Requires Expertise
Complete Home Concepts is one of Kansas City’s largest glass fabricators. We perform custom glass cutting at our facility in Riverside for one reason. We want to produce a quality end piece so that your project is perfect. Since custom cut glass has to be installed precisely, we have experts on staff who handle the final phase.
With so many choices to make about the custom cut glass you choose, you want an expert on hand who asks the right questions and will guide you on aspects like edge profile and finish. Both of these are difficult to imagine when buying custom cut glass online, not to mention who’ll handle the intricacies of fabrication and installation.
Choosing an Edge Profile
Custom cutting glass comes with several choices for the edge profile. Some are more obvious than others. If you’re unsure which type of edge would work and look best for where your custom cut glass will be used, our experts can explain the pros and cons of each to help you narrow down your choice to fit your project. Online sources may expect you to know exactly what you want.
Edge profile options include:
- Single, double or triple bevel in several sizes
- And more
Selecting a Finish
Part of custom cut glass’s allure is the ability to customize it to your needs and space. For privacy, you can choose frosted, satin, reflective, tinted or etched glass or glass with a film. The etching technique and film can be used to personalize should you want a specific initial, word, image or pattern on your glass. Finished can be layered for a unique look.
Ordering Custom Cut Glass Online vs. a Local Source
Until installed professionally, glass is fragile. But you probably already know that. What you might not know is that buying glass from a fabricator near you, like Complete Home Concepts saves a lot of hassle, time and money.
Save the hassle by talking through your project with one of our custom cut glass experts. Let’s think through your goals, privacy and location. For example:
- What’s the purpose of your custom cut glass? Will it create a space? Add an aesthetic touch? Minimize or maximize temperature?
- Is there a need to create privacy? How opaque or translucent do you need the glass to be, especially in the case of windows and shower doors?
- Where will the custom cut glass be used? Interior or exterior? Should it allow in the most or a little light?
Save time by avoiding long delivery times and high shipping fees, plus the time you or your contractor spends installing your custom cut glass.
Save hassle with knowing your custom cut glass order will be done exactly to the specifications. It’s a hassle to order and wait for a piece that arrives looking nothing like you wanted or doesn’t fit properly. Since glass is fragile, even the most careful shipping isn’t a guarantee your order will arrive intact and undamaged.
Custom cut glass offers so many possibilities in many areas of your home. Thanks to today’s cutting, material and design options, there are not many projects that can’t include glass.
