Did you know that you can replace your windows and doors all year round? It’s true. As long as you’re willing to risk a little draftiness while the crew installs the door, you can update the look and efficiency of your home in the winter months. Let’s take a look at the different types of residential glass doors for front entryways.

Your front door is an important part of your home’s curb appeal. It is literally what you welcome your guests through when they visit your home. The glass within your front door increases the functionality of your entryway, adding natural light and beauty without sacrificing energy efficiency or privacy. Here’s are a few of our favorite residential glass door trends.

Clear Glass Front Doors

Clear glass doors are a beautiful option if you prefer a clean aesthetic. Clear glass provides an unobstructed view from your home to the front yard. Of course, the flip side of this is that people outside have a clear view into your home, too. If you want to add clear glass to your front door, consider a door that has blinds between the glass panels. This allows you to shut out the world once the sun goes down while enjoying all the natural light glass provides during the day.

Rain Glass for Residential Glass Doors

Rain glass is a trendy finish for residential front doors. It is a type of privacy glass that looks like rain on a windowpane. The texture obscures the view in and out of the glass panel while still letting natural light into your entryway.

Frosted Glass for Front Doors

Frosted glass has been a mainstay in the privacy glass market for decades. Today, frosted glass comes in several different styles that provide different looks—and different levels of privacy. Like rain glass, frosted glass allows natural light into your home while obscuring the view in and out of the glass panel.

Stained Glass for Front Doors

Stained glass is a classic choice for residential front doors. If you own an older home, a stained glass panel may be the perfect fit for your entryway. Stained glass adds some privacy while creating beautiful, colored natural light patterns in your entryway. You can find stained glass front doors in a variety of styles or work with a glass company to create your own custom design.

Incorporating glass into your front entryway can increase your home’s curb appeal and add natural light to your home.
