For a modern bungalow, a wooden front door is complemented by opaque architectural glass sidelights. Stained glass sidelights are suitable for the entryway of a Victorian house. Match front door sidelights with the overall house design for the best look.
Historic homes typically have leaded glass sidelights, and frosted glass is a common feature for mission-style sidelights used in Craftsman homes. Art Deco designs are creative options for Asian-inspired homes.
Glass is not a necessary component for creativity. A Tudor-style front door with wood-framed sidelights that match the curved lines of the entryway is a great way to add creativity.
