The curb appeal of your property, and its contribution to the appeal of the entire neighborhood, depends on your aesthetic design choices for your home’s front entry door. Quality workmanship and door installation are also essential to optimize your front entry. That’s why many homeowners choose to provide specifications for the design of their own custom entry doors. It’s the best way to create the inviting entryway you want for welcoming your friends and family into your home. Energy Shield custom door designers can create the ideal glass home entry door for your needs.
Custom Glass Entry Door Light
Installing a custom glass entry door brings in a lot of extra natural light. That creates a fresh and especially inviting living space. Natural light inside buildings has been shown to have positive effects on productivity, mood, and the sense of happiness. Also, of course, having more light flowing in through your home’s entry door, means your family needs less use of electric light, which is one more way to reduce energy costs.
The Privacy of the Entryway
Consider the amount of privacy you want to maintain through your exterior doors. There are options for various degrees of privacy with glass doors. With any of these choices, you can still benefit from plenty of natural light through the door without compromising the amount of privacy you need:
- You may be situated to allow full-length, clear, unobstructed glass doors.
- You may choose to have the light coming through the door filtered through colored, frosted, or etched glass.
- You might prefer adding a decorative grille to partially obscure visibility through the door.
- Or, you may prefer to have a smaller total area of exposed glass in the door.
- You can select from various forms of exquisite glass artwork.
- You might opt for a solid door with flanking narrow side lights (glass side panels).
Secure and Beautiful Custom Glass Doors
People unfamiliar with glass door options are sometimes concerned that a glass entry door will not provide the level of home security that standard solid-core wood or metal doors provide. But, modifications can be made as part of your custom door design to reinforce the glass and maximize the security of your new glass entry door. For example:
- You can choose thicker and/or double-pane glass for more durable weather protection and security against unwelcome entry.
- Investing in a heavy leaded glass door may be worth it for the strength it adds.
- Or, you may opt for a simple, understated, or more ornate decorative wrought iron security door cover as a security and style feature.
