Not only do you get that wonderful, natural sunlight in your bedroom, there’s no need to worry about your close-by neighbors being able to peek into your bedroom.

Posted January 4th, 2018 by ssgadmin

According to the New York Times, Houston’s housing market continues to be unsinkable even after Hurricane Harvey. The Houston area grows approximately by 400 people daily and builds 40,000 housing units a year, making it the nation’s largest new-housing market. This is unbelievable news for Houston home owners, especially since it consistently trends as a seller’s market. It’s always a great time for home owners to renovate their homes, in order to increase their resale value. A great starter renovation is always the entryway.

Privacy Stained Glass Sidelights

Sidelights in your Houston home entryway are a great starter option for renovation. Sidelights are often selling points in a home due to the fact that they let in an abundance of natural light, creating an open, bright entryway for great first impressions. The problem with typical, manufactured sidelights is the fact that they lack privacy, letting any neighborhood stroller to see clearly into your home and family. Not only is this a privacy issue, but it can definitely be a safety issue as well.

Blinds and drapes could be custom made for your sidelights, but they often take away from your curb appeal and restrains that beautiful natural light. The best option for maintaining aesthetics, safety, and privacy are stained glass sidelights.

Adding Stained Glass to the Entryway of Your Denver Home

Posted January 4th, 2018 by ssgadmin

The real estate market in Denver is thriving right now due to the fact that Denver is the fastest growing city in the U.S. It’s definitely a seller’s market here, which is great news for Denver homeowners! With this strong, current trend in the real estate market, it’s a great idea to add more equity and curb appeal to your home and investment. Adding stained glass to your entryway can really add that special, unique touch to your Denver home!

Considering Privacy Stained Glass for Your Entryway

The standard glass featured in many entryways is great for allowing natural light into your home, but unfortunately doesn’t give any of the resident’s privacy. Privacy stained glass is a great option for those who want natural light in their entryways as well as reducing outside visibility. Blinds and drapes aren’t really options for entryways, so privacy stained glass is your best option for better concealment.

Increasing Your Denver Home’s Value

Adding stained glass to your entryway is a wonderful, creative way in quickly increasing your Denver home’s perceived and resale value. According to HGTV, home improvement projects cost approximately 20 to 25 cents to the dollar- the other 75 to 80 cents spent go directly back into the home through increased value. The entryway is also projected as the highest cost regained percentage in renovation at 85.6%, almost 10% higher than a kitchen or basement remodel. Remodeling your entryway is a great starting point to any home renovation since it’s the smallest project and highest cost regained investment.

Stained Glass Styles

With so many different styles and colors to choose from, you can really create a custom piece of art for your entryway.
