Sidelight stained glass can make the most incredible difference to your home’s entryway. It can add color, style, beauty, uniqueness, and even light.

These days many homes are built in developments. There might be two or three models of homes, but the entryways all look fairly the same. They are quite generic and look like all the other homes on the block. And yet, homeowners like their homes to look individual, which is why they take so much care with their furnishings, their landscaping, their overall décor. By adding sidelight stained glass on one or both sides of the front door, the home’s entryway is immediately individualized.

Especially since all of our stained glass windows and door panels are custom designed to that particular client’s tastes and specifications. So where one might like colored glass, another might choose frosted glass with beveled accents. And yet another might ask for clear glass, in an intricate pattern.

Another issue many homeowners have with their entryways is lack of privacy. They dislike the idea that strangers at their front door can see into the home. This is particularly annoying if the front door opens right into the living room, and the homeowners are sitting there but don’t feel inclined to answer the door. Many of our clients previously hung a piece of cloth or even taped paper over their sidelights, so no one could see in. But this has two disadvantages. First, it makes the space even darker than it already is. And second, it simply does not look very high end or very beautiful. With sidelight stained glass done with frosted glass, the light can still enter. And the homeowners can have the privacy they are seeking.

So, sidelight stained glass gives beauty and uniqueness, along with privacy, more light, and added value to the home. Convinced about the value of sidelight stained glass?
