Your home’s front entrance is the one that guests enter through and you want it to look its best. You’ve planted an array of beautiful plants and flowers, landscaped the front yard, and created a nice walkway. You also make sure the exterior of your house is looking good, but if your front door isn’t as attractive as everything else, it throws everything off. You could replace it, but there’s an easier, and less expensive option. Door glass inserts turn a plain door into a piece of functional art. Beyond their looks, there are five benefits of installing door glass inserts.
Adds a Personal Touch
The style of your home is a reflection of your tastes and everything about it is personal. You’ve carefully chosen the paint colors, furnishings, and accessories that best express your uniqueness. Every room in your house is beautifully decorated. Door glass inserts come in a variety of glass shapes, styles, colors and textures, so it’s easy to add that same personal touch to your front door. You can rest assured that no one else will have the exact same door as you.
Brightens Your Entryway
Stumbling through a dark entryway to answer the door, or as you’re coming in after a long day at work is no fun. It’s also not the most inviting way to greet your guests. You could install additional lights, but natural light is a much more attractive option. Door glass panels are a great way to light the sunshine in so it can naturally brighten up the entryway. From early morning until the last light of the day, you’ll enjoy the soft glow of the sun instead of harsh light bulbs.
Keeps Your Privacy
Decorative glass panels allow that light to shine in without sacrificing your privacy. Different decorative designs offer different levels of privacy options giving you total control on the privacy of your entrance. If privacy is a concern, you can pick out a design that has heavy textures to obscure the view and keep your home private.
Improves Curb Appeal
If you’ve considered selling your house, you know that curb appeal is extremely important. From the moment someone pulls up, you want them to be impressed. A new roof, siding, windows, and a fresh coat of paint are usually the first projects sellers think about doing. But don’t stop there. Door glass panels in a stained, or painted door add the finishing touch and a boost to the curb appeal instantly. That can result in a higher perceived value for a buyer, and a higher selling price for you.
It's a DIY Project
Many home improvement projects require a licensed professional, which can be extremely expensive. If you’re handy with a few basic tools and you’ve got a little extra time you can avoid the cost and hassle of hiring someone else for this project. It’s actually pretty quick and easy to install door glass panels yourself. There are just a few simple steps that only take a few minutes to accomplish. The results will be so amazing your friends and family might even ask you to do theirs too!
