Choosing a glazing design to create a truly unique entrance – Part 1

March 31st 2017

Choosing a glazing design to create a truly unique entrance – Part 1

Never underestimate the impact an external door can have on your home.   Having the right entrance gives visitors an insight into what to expect when they walk through the door.

When you decide to update your external doors, you should first consider which styles and colours are going to compliment the architecture of your home.

You’ll probably have a pretty clear picture of the style you want in your head.  But when it comes to the glazing options you might not have given it much thought… Until now!

Solidor have a fine range of beautiful glass designs to compliment your chosen style of composite door.  You probably didn’t know this but that many of the glass options available are manufactured right here in our glass shop by our skilled glaziers.

Let the sunshine in

Choosing a door with a glazed panel is a fantastic way illuminate your hallway with natural light.  In the sunlight the bevels used in designs like Reflections, Simplicity, and Diamond act as a prism and will create a beautiful rainbow on your internal walls.

If privacy is a concern for you, a sandblasted design like the Victorian or London Etch Border suits both contemporary and traditional door styles. These designs have a flat frosted finish and whilst they’ll allow the light through, they both offer a high level of obscurity.

Modern Glazing

Another option with a truly modern twist would be the Matrix design.  This attractive panel features laser cut stainless steel elements which are beautifully offset against rain textured glass.

This is a truly contemporary design and will create the focal point of your door.  It looks fab as a contrast to the wood grain of Walnut, Golden Oak and Irish Oak, but also looks great with the bold hues of Peacock Blue, Rich Aubergine and Red

So whether your looking for a contemporary or traditional glazing accompaniment for your new Solidor, you’ll definitely find your perfect match within our range.
