Stained glass sidelights can bring in light while keeping your privacy.

Our stained glass sidelights offer a home many different advantages, from more privacy to more beauty to more value in the home itself. And then there is the advantage of having more light.

There are lots of Denver residents who have homes with really dark entryways. These old fashioned kinds of entryways frequently open into narrow hallways and can actually be so dark that lights are required even during the middle of sunny days. And of course, while these homeowners can add a brighter bulb in the light fixture, or just get use to the lack of light, what they really crave is natural sunlight. Honestly, there is nothing else like it.

In order to fix this you could remodel the entire entryway. However, this would cost thousands of dollars and take several months to complete. Another option that would be a fraction of the cost and time is adding stained glass sidelights.

The first thing you’d need to do is determine whether you have room on one or both sides of your door to add the sidelights. They will open up the feeling of your entryway and allow much more light to flow into the space. So if you are going to add sidelights anyway, we believe that for not that much more money, you could have some gorgeous stained glass sidelights.


They will let the light in while keeping your privacy, if you have them made from frosted, textured, semi-translucent or beveled glass. To see some stained glass sidelight ideas, take a stroll through our stained glass sidelight gallery. You will notice that while some of our Denver clients chose colorful patterns, most people chose clear kinds of glass that would work with every color scheme and every possible décor.

Wouldn’t you love more natural light in your home, especially if it came with some gorgeous artwork to boot? This is one home improvement you will never grow tired of. Your new stained glass sidelights will welcome you home from a long day at work, greet your guests, friends, and family with a classy “hello,” and raise the overall valuation of your home, if and when you ever decide to sell it.

Of course, if you do decide to sell it and cannot bear to part with your stained glass panels, just let us know. We can remove them so that you can take them with you to your new home. Of course, you do realize we could just make you new stained glass sidelights when you move, don’t you?
