Available in a wide range of design and patterns, textured glass can add extra curb appeal to your front door.
Despite being more opaque than clear glass, textured doesn’t compromise on the amount of light that in draws in whilst providing added privacy.
Stained glass is a vibrantly coloured style of decorative glass that has been a feature in churches and cathedrals for centuries.
In terms of front doors, stained glass has grown in popularity amongst homeowners looking for a traditional and out of the ordinary glass design.
When paired with a wooden door, stained glass creates a vintage aesthetic that is guaranteed to catch the eye.
Clear glass is the style of glass that people are most familiar with.
For front doors, where clear glass lacks in privacy, it makes up for in a sleek and modern appeal.
Clear glass is also perfect for maximising the amount of natural light that seeps through, creating a lighter and airier entranceway.
If you’re looking to bring vibrancy and colour to your front door, then coloured glass is a perfect choice.
With an array of colour choices available, you can choose one that complements the colour of your home.
Coloured glass creates an eye-catching focal point to your front door, ideal for making a statement.
Frosted glass is an ideal option of front door glass if privacy and versatility are of top priority.
By obscuring images behind the glass, frosted glass is often chosen for front doors as it promotes privacy from passers-by.
Despite its appearance, frosted glass doesn’t restrict the amount of light that filters in your home, creating a light and airy space.
Bevelled glass is one of the most popular forms of decorative glass.
Bevelled glass is designed and cut in such a way that it creates a prismatic effect, resulting in stunning colour refraction that catches the eye.
