If “privacy” and “glass doors” in the same sentence make you suspicious, you probably let frosted, textured or stained glass slip your mind. In this article, we’ll show you how easy is to enjoy natural light while not having to worry that intrusive eyes might spoil your privacy.
There are so many reasons for having a glass front door, but we’ll pick just one of them: we believe that you want as much light in your house as you can get. Large windows, skylights, why not a glass front door too? If you’re worried that your privacy may be invaded with so much glass around you, worry no more. As we said, there are glass options to consider and this problem is solved in no time.
Frosted glass is obtained by sandblasting or acid etching a clear sheet of glass. The effect may also be achieved by applying a film on the regular glass pane, or even spray it with a special substance that will make the glass look frosted. The advantage of such a glass is that you can have it frosted in the style you want. If you don’t want it to be fully frosted or if you’d prefer having a pattern, you can get exactly what you like.
Unlike frosted glass, this glass offers more options. The glass distorts the view inside or obscures it.
This option is different in that it can be that bit harder to harmonise it with the general appearance of your house. But it’s not impossible. You don’t have to go for a floral pattern or a geometrical one if they don’t match your style. The beauty of stained glass resides in the effect it creates when sun goes through it. We have detailed the subject in this article.
This type of window is made of many pieces of stained, cleared or beveled panes of glass soldered together. These are also pretentious because they rather compliment a traditionally designed house than a modern one.
Other options for privacy with a front glass door are simply using curtains or blinds if you want to have clear glass.
