Add new light to your entryway

Add new light to your entryway

Have you ever given much thought to your home’s entryway, either the interior or the exterior? Fact is, the entryway is the first impression guests and family will have of your home. It is the place that greets them and greets you when you come home as well. But it is another known fact that many developments across Colorado have homes that all look the same, with very generic looking entryways. With the installation of custom designed entryway stained glass, Denver homes can give a warm and beautiful welcome to all who approach.

Is your entryway rather dark on the inside? It’s no wonder, with that big solid front door blockint the light. And if your door opens into a windowless foyer or hallway, your entryway interior might be dark and drab. With entryway stained glass, Denver homeowners can add new light to their entryways. Here’s how:

For starters, if the house has sidelights in the entryway (those are not lights but rather the narrow rectangular windows you might have on one or both sides of your front door), you might have covered them up for privacy reasons. We have come across many clients who either hung a cloth or papered over those windows because they did not like the idea of strangers being able to peer into the house or see if anyone was home. But covering the sidelights makes the entryway even darker than it originally was, and you have to admit that the coverings frequently do not look very nice. With entryway stained glass, Denver homeowners get the privacy they are seeking and a dose of gorgeousness at the same time. And the stained glass, particularly if it is colorless leaded or beveled stained glass, will continue to let in the much-needed light that brightens up that front area of your home.


And that’s not all. Or, as they say on TV infomercials: “Wait! There’s more!” If you are looking for even more light than your builder originally planned for, why not consider adding matching stained glass inserts right into the front door itself? You’ll still keep the privacy and let even more light in. Substantially more in fact.

Want to see some examples? Click here to take a virtual stroll through our photo gallery to see some of the entryway stained glass Denver customers have commissioned from us. Notice just how much more light is coming through in the homes that have the stained glass in the front door as well as the sidelights and transom. (This might require the purchase of a new front door, depending on the door you have now.)
