Many home owners find themselves in a house that has one window in the living room. Consequently they don’t always want to undergo a huge construction project that involves knocking a large hole in the wall to add another window. However, it is a less daunting task to enlarge the space around your front door. Get an accredited builder to measure the space around your door so that the correct size is knocked out in preparation for the installation of the side light door. A side light door is usually much wider than the standard front door because it includes the front door panel as well as one or two side panels. The option with the two side panels adds more light to the room as it usually contains two long sheets of glass. For added light the front door part also contains glass. The design depends largely on the style you want.
For example, you could opt for a wooden door that has a four round or square glass panels along the length of it. It could also be frosted glass to ensure that no one can see into your home. Alternatively you could choose a side light door where the front door panel has a wooden border with a glass centre, or a set of horizontal rectangular glass sheets along the length of it. Whatever combination of glass and wood you decide on is up to you. And don’t worry, if your design is too unique to be found anywhere, you can have it made for you by a custom door manufacturer. It’s your home and you should be able to express yourself without limitations. If you go the customised route you can also decide on the type of wood you want to use as well as the colour. In addition, you also have the option to choose clear, frosted or stained glass. It can be made to suit your home perfectly.
Side light doors are an easy and quick way to add more light to your home without the big messy business that comes with home renovations. Obviously, the more glass elements you have in the design the more natural light is able to enter the living room.
