A custom stained glass sidelight or two can make a striking difference to the look of your home’s entryway. For those unfamiliar with the term, sidelights are the tall, narrow vertical windows on either side of your front door, the ones that don’t open but do let in considerable light.

They also allow people to look into your home, which many homeowners don’t like. Sometimes, these homeowners will tape paper or hand cloth over the sidelights, adding more privacy but defeating the purpose of having windows in the entryway. With a custom stained glass sidelight, that problem is easily solved. Privacy plus beauty and distinctiveness are the results.

We work together with each client to create the style and design for our stained glass pieces. Our stained glass sidelight designs are all unique and crafted to our clients’ tastes. Whereas one might like a Mission style window, another might like something antique or using our special leaded and beveled stained glass designs.

With a custom stained glass sidelight, customers can have anything they like. The windows can be designed to best complement the home’s architecture and style, or its period. Antique windows for a Victorian home? Floral designs for a mountain home? Art Deco designs for a more contemporary home?

A custom stained glass sidelight is an affordable and unique gift for a new homeowner. It’s a fantastic way to give an entryway some uniqueness and make it stand out from the other homes on the block or in the development. After all, the rest of your home has been decorated to your tastes. Why should your entryway look just like everyone else’s?
