Your front door is one of the first encounters guests will have with your home and whilst there are some great generic designs being manufactured, having a recognizable house means having a front door that catches the eye in all the right ways. Embodying a range of design elements to create a unique front door that functions as you need it to with a distinctive aesthetic appeal is a fun process.

Sidelites and Transom Windows

Transom windows are horizontal slim windows and frames that feature above your front door whilst sidelites are narrow, vertical windows and frames that flank the entrance door. Sidelites can be installed either left or right of the main door or both sides can feature sidelites for an amazing entrance to your home.

Sidelites and transom windows make wonderful features for an entrance door to your home and are great additions from a practical outlook as they allow more natural light to enter your home.


Glass in an entrance door of a home serves a variety of functions, it allows more light in and creates a beautiful and bright atmosphere, it allows you to take in the outside views and it allows for creative designs to unfold through a variety of different sizes and patterns. Glass inlays can also assist you to decide on the amount of sun light that you would like to enter your home.

Patterns and Designs

Wooden doors and frames allow for a variety of designs and patterns as well as the incorporation of other beautiful materials. As an example, wooden doors can be ‘blocked’ and certain parts can comprise of cement or even different coloured blocks that accommodate the wood. Custom glass uses glass sheets that have been shaped or textured for visual intrigue and for additional privacy from the outside.
