Top 5 Reasons to Add Stained Glass to Your Entryway

Stained Entryway Glass

Does your home have a glass panel in the front door? Or how about two sidelights on either side of the front door, or a transom window at the top of the door? These are one of the most popular places for people to add stained glass windows, for a wide variety of reasons.

Entryway Stained Glass

Stained Glass Entryway DesignsYour home’s entryway is the first thing a visitor sees when coming to your home. It is their first impression of you and the way you live. In fact, it is also the first thing you see when you get home, so you’d like it to be warm and inviting. You want it to “welcome” you home. Many homeowners jazz up that area with flowers, interestingly sculpted bushes, or even painting their front door a brighter, more dramatic contrasting color than the rest of the house, such as cherry red or forest green.

Another option which will really make your home stand out is the addition of either colored stained glass, or clear leaded glass.

Here are the top 5 benefits of having custom stained glass in your home’s entryway:

  1. Make a striking first – and last – impression on friends, visitors and family. It will be obvious to all who see it that your home is well loved and cared for, a prized possession and reflection of its owner’s great taste.
  2. Give your home an individual, personalized look in today’s oh-so-similar housing developments. You know, the ones where every house looks exactly the same as the ones next to it – except yours!
  3. Add privacy, without blocking the light.  When people come to your front door, they cannot see into your home from the outside. You can see them through the peephole, but no one will know if you are home or not in case you decide not to answer the door.
  4. Add value to your home. Custom stained glass windows from Scottish Stained Glass add value just like any other home improvement. They might be the very thing that sells your house, if the time should come that you decide to put it on the market. (On the other hand, you can have us remove your stained glass windows and take them with you, if you simply cannot bear to part with them!)
  5. Add the beauty of fine, hand crafted and custom designed artwork to your home in a way that is not just lovely and decorative, it’s practical as well for all the preceding reasons!

We have a wide variety of options for entryways, including traditional colored stained glass patterns in many different styles, as well as beveled and textured glass with varying degrees of transparency. If your front door is solid wood, we can even create a new, custom door with a cutout for a stained glass panel in the center.
