Salt Lake City Stained Glass basement

A finished look

When we mention basement stained glass, Salt Lake City residents frequently raise their eyebrows. They have never considered putting stained glass in the basement. “Why there,” they ask us. We’ll tell you why!

Have you recently had your basement refinished? Or are you in the process of having it finished now? You might be putting in a family room, an entertainment room with a bar, a new office or bedroom, perhaps even turning a large portion of your basement into a mother in law apartment. If so, then you might be bemoaning the fact that no matter what you do to the basement, no matter how fantastic it looks, mot matter how many fantastic furnishings you put into it, there is one part that never looks quite right.

Yes, we are talking about the well windows, those tiny windows that open up to nothing but the dirt or a metal window well or the stem end of a shrub. They are ugly. The view they show you is ugly. They can really mar the entire look of the basement. But what can be done, aside from covering them with teeny tiny curtains (which also look kind of ridiculous, you have to admit)?
