Wooden External doors with Sidelights – Let the Light In
If you are not familiar already with these design elements, sidelights are panels of windows that can be installed to the sides of your wooden external doors where additional light and design flair are desired.
They frame your door and should be cohesive with the overall architectural design of the entryway. Sidelights allow for extravagant unique entrances to be created by flooding light into your entrance hall. This is not only a source of light for the day, but can provide a mood-lifting glimpse of the outdoors at night. This automatically makes a home more light and spacious. Charming and captivating, our sidelights compliment our luxurious doors which are perfect for homes that appreciate the finer qualities in life.
Benefits of natural lighting
Make the most of daylight and bring the outdoors in. There are many psychological and physical benefits to natural lighting. One is that using natural light will reduce home and building energy bills thanks to the building using less electrical lighting. Second, natural lighting is physically beneficial to the human body. The human eye reacts negatively to artificial light, while natural lightning relaxes the human eye. The human body also reacts positively to natural lightning by producing Vitamin D from the light’s contact with the skin and improving a person’s brain chemistry. This can help a person feel better physically and help their mind focus better. Finally, natural lightning is more aesthetically pleasing. Psychologically, people are more attracted to natural lightning than an artificial light source. With that mind, here are ways we have gained more natural lightning into homes with our wooden external doors.
Style it our with sidelights
Below our client wanted a modern front door which featured a sleek, simple and streamlined design with large clear sidelights. We installed our Satini contemporary door which features a solid wood construction with horizontal boards and vertical side styles. Complimenting the door we added large glazed sidelights either side enhancing the entrance and allowing natural light to flow through the home.
On the project below our customer wanted a traditional clean look which allowed light to enter through the hallway but they also wanted privacy. So we installed glazed sidelights with a frosted glass. The frosted glass lets in light while maintaining privacy. Which looks great and will provide a great first impression for many years to come.
