Bring new light into your entryway.

Bring new light into your entryway.

Does your Houston home have sidelights, one or two, on either side of your front door? Many clients never give much of a thought to the sidelights in their entryways. But these windows were designed to bring light into this sometimes dark area of a house.

Stained glass sidelights can let the light through, while adding style, distinctiveness, beauty, and value to your home. With stained glass sidelights, Houston homes get a new look and new light. What do we mean by new light? Well, the way the light looks filtering through your new stained glass can be very different, particularly if you choose beveled glass for your sidelights.

Beveled glass is probably our most popular choice for stained glass sidelights in Houston and the rest of Texas. This beveled edge glass refracts the sunlight in pleasing ways, taking plain old sunlight and turning it into a rainbow of sparkling dancing light.

Of course, sidelights don’t have to be beveled glass or frosted glass. They can be any colors or types of glass that you prefer, that will look fantastic in your home.

Want to see some of what we are talking about? Take a look at the photos in our stained glass sidelight gallery, and click on any of the thumbnail photos to enlarge it so you can see the detail in the beveling.

In fact, if you’d like to get even more light into your entryway, we suggest a stained glass panel inserted into your front door, that matches the stained glass sidelights. Talk about eye-catching and elegant!
