When designing a new home, the entranceway has always been considered an important focal point to create balance and an inviting feel for anyone coming to your door. The perfect entrance enhances the curb appeal of the home, but what about the inside of the home? As integral as your entrance doors are to the overall appearance of the home exterior, they are equally as important to create warmth and feel to the home interior.
Adding glass to your entrance system is an ideal way to add natural light into the entrance area of the home. Typical entrance foyers do not have other light sources such as windows or skylights; which can make these areas relatively dark on even the nicest days. Adding glass to your entrance system is like adding another window to the home and bringing in warmth and a welcoming feel.
What are Options for Natural Light
There are levels of natural light that can be added to your entrance with doorglass, sidelight glass and transom glass. All three are designed to increase natural light while increasing the curb appeal of the home. Sidelights and transoms surround the door with natural light and add warmth to the entry. For maximum natural light, doorglass is the answer to bring light into this area of the home. Doorglass is available in a wide range of sizes to fit your needs.
But What About Privacy
Adding natural light to your entrance does not mean that you cannot maintain your privacy. ODL has a wide variety of glass and integral treatment options, which allow you to add natural light without creating a window to the world. ODL products privacy ratings allow you to make the decision as to the level of privacy you desire along with your light.
From standard clear glass to highly obscure patterns such as those containing glue chip or textured glass, or integral treatments, which allow you to control the level of light you desire with blinds or shades between the glass.
