Spotlight On: The Beveled Edge

Who would have thought such a (relatively) small change could completely transform the look and curb appeal of a home? In just a few hours and for less than the price of a new entry door system, Norton and Vicki Canterbury, owners of The Beveled Edge, start with a homeowner’s existing door, cut out a portion and insert custom art beveled glass panels.

The San Juan Capistrano studio, showroom and manufacturing facility specializes in the aforementioned front door remodels, as well as interior doors and cabinet doors.

“Any door, whether wood, metal or fiberglass, can be transformed into a functional work of art,” says Norton. “The Beveled Edge also offers custom etched glass, architectural glass and heavy glass table tops.”

What sets their business apart is the personal touch – both Norton and Vicki are “fully involved” in every job, working directly with each client to “make certain we create the vision they desire for their home.”

According to Norton, the collaborative design process includes the creation of full-scale templates for review by the client and glass selection, which may include just bevels and clear textured glass or full color. The privacy level that each customer desires in their leaded glass panels is discussed and implemented.

“It is this approach that we believe results in a large percentage of our sales come from repeat customers or are referrals from friends, neighbors, or relatives,” says Vicki. “Our business success can be attributed to honesty, hard work and providing uncompromising quality in each and every leaded or etched glass panel that is hand-crafted by our expert artisans. The workmanship is guaranteed for a lifetime. Our goal is to create custom art glass panels that will exceed your expectations in every way.”
