32 Types of Glass Front Doors for Your Home

New house with glass front door

Choosing the right glass for your front entry door is a meticulous process. For homeowners seeking a little more privacy, frosted or stained glass offers less visibility. Rain glass, giving the appearance of heavy rain streaks against a window, is a current trend.

Clear beveled glass is less private option, but allows the maximum amount of light. If overlaid with wrought iron, it can create more privacy while also embarking on a baroque semblance.

Homeowners seeking to combine clear beveled glass with privacy may also consider investing in a wood entry door with blinds between glass panels. Manually-controlled blinds can be installed between the glass panels of a door for optimal visibility (or lack thereof). When it comes to wood entry doors, there are shapes, designs, and sizes for every home, with styles that span across decades and architectural trends.
