Dark rooms immediately upon entering a home are a big problem for homeowners. Front doors made of solid, thick wood block outside light from entering. How to remedy this problem and have a well-lit vestibule? Read on to find out!
As a result of having doors made of a thick, uniform layer, we have to save ourselves with artificial lighting, which often does not meet its requirements anyway. Good visibility in the vestibule is especially required. This is where we receive guests from outside, check our hairstyles before going out, correct our make-up or put on shoes
A good idea to brighten up this part of the house is to place external doors with glazing. Not only will they make the front door look spectacular, they will also allow daylight to stream into the interior. Glass is a commonly used, elegant material that adds grace and visually enlarges the entrance.
The style you decide on for glazing depends on the size of the entire front door, the color of the exterior façade paint, and the workmanship of the window or balcony frames. You can choose between horizontal and vertical glazing, along the entire length of the door or only at the top or bottom of the door.
The use of these two materials obliges us to balance the proportions in a specific way; we want the glass to be only decorative and to brighten up the internal space, so we cannot allow any dysfunction of the door. It may happen that we choose the front of the door at another time, one in which the windows are already in the right place, then we match the styling to the shutter. The right combination of materials will give a neat and tidy effect.
No one would want a vandal to vandalize his front door, thereby destroying the beautiful glass. However, sometimes such situations do happen. If we do not want to decide on a professional, we can try to replace it ourselves. Which, as it turns out, is not at all incredibly difficult. So how to replace the glass without damaging the entire front door?
Remember that every door you buy should have a burglar proof certificate. It is worth taking care of this, because it is the front door that protects our possessions and gives us a sense of security.
