Stained glass sidelight designs offer a brand new style.

For discerning homeowners in Ft. Collins, stained glass sidelights are revolutionizing the look of their entryways. Consider the entryway: it plays an important function, since it is the entrance to your home. It is the first thing guests and newcomers see of your home and your level of taste.

And yet, for some reason, entryways are frequently dull, boring, the same-old same-old. In fact, in many developments, every entryway on the block looks or in the entire neighborhood looks pretty much the same. Other than painting your front door a unique color, what can you do to add some style to your home’s entryway? In Ft. Collins, stained glass sidelights provide the perfect vehicle to add value, uniqueness and beauty to your home. To show off your great taste. And even to add a bit more privacy without blocking the light, if that is something you might want.

In case you aren’t familiar with the term, sidelights are not lights at all. They are those narrow windows (usually non-functional) on one or both sides of your front door, deliberately put there to let in more light.

For residents of Ft. Collins, stained glass sidelights seem to really meet their needs. If you do want to add elegance and style to your entryway, while letting in the light, we have a few suggestions.

1. Try leaded stained glass, using colorless kinds of glass such as frosted and beveled, to let in the most sunlight into what is frequently a fairly dark part of a house.

2. Create a matching door insert, in the same style and pattern as the sidelights, for extra impact.

3. Add stained glass to the transom above your front door, for a complete look.

4. Work together with one of our local Fort Collins stained glass sidelights designers to create a pattern that is perfect for your home.
