As you've visited communities scouting out ideas for your new home, you're bound to have seen stylish entryways. You know the ones. They have full view doors and two sidelights, maybe even a transom - all filled with decorative doorglass. You may have even thought, "Wow that door is nice. I'd like to have one of those in our house." Well, you can. You're planning for a new home aren't you? All you have to do is plan accordingly. After all, aren't curb appeal and enjoyment important factors to consider when building a new home? Why settle for a plain entryway, when you can personalize and make a statement?

Out With the Old, In With the New


Plain, six-panel doors are a thing of the past. Homeowners and prospective homebuyers across the country have realized the benefits of decorative doorglass. Today's doors combine the beauty of leaded glass with the durability and efficiency of modern glass.

Curb Appeal


The impression your home makes to a passersby, also known as the curb-appeal factor, can be impacted by your front door. Front entries with decorative doorglass not only personalize your home, but they also add to your home's curb appeal. The difference between a solid door and one with a full or even half light glass insert is plain to see!

Natural Light

Many entryways and foyers can be dark, but you don't have to live in the dark any longer. Incorporating decorative doorglass into your entryway accesses an alternate source of natural light to provide you with a stunning, bright entryway. Decorative glass will cast intricate patterns of sunlight, like paint on a canvas, upon the interior and exterior spaces of your home.



Some homeowners may choose to coordinate the doorglass with the homes' architectural style, while others use decorative doorglass as a striking focal point for the front of the home. With so many styles to choose from, you can select the style that is right for you and your home.
