Added privacy and light

Added privacy and light

With the installation of stained glass sidelights, Denver homeowners are adding value, beauty, and distinctiveness to their home’s entryway. Stained glass has been popular for hundreds of years because it is such a dramatic and stunning form of art. One that can really give any area of a home that elusive “wow” factor.

But when it comes to your entryway, you might have some practical considerations along with the aesthetic ones. Two practical considerations that are an issue with our Denver clients include privacy and light. Let’s take a look at each one, to see how stained glass can add what you need at the same time as it beautifies your entryway.

With stained glass sidelights, Denver entryways get all the privacy they need. Many people these days do not like the idea of strangers being able to peer inside their homes. They don’t want solicitors to know if they are or aren’t home. In this internet age, privacy is at a premium. One place people want and need privacy is in the comfort of their own homes. If privacy is a concern, we recommend leaded stained glass for your entryway. This style, usually made with frosted glass for privacy and beveled glass for beauty, texture, and interesting light flow, is our top choice for sidelights.

What about light? This is another concern for Denver homeowners, because frequently a home’s entryway is fairly dark. So as much as they want privacy, they do not want to block the natural light coming into that area, which is the purpose of sidelights. So with the style we have been talking about, leaded stained glass sidelights, Denver light lovers can have beauty, privacy, and the light will still flow into the entryway.

If you want added light, there are a couple of things you might consider. One is adding a matching stained glass panel to your front door, to let in more light.
