3 Ways to Add Additional Privacy to a Glass Door

The Entryway: 3 Easy Methods To Add Privacy To A Glass Door

So you’re gearing up to transform your home’s entryway, but you want to learn more about how to add privacy to a glass entry door.

We can help!

We’re Today’s Entry Doors, and we’ve been working with Orange County, CA homeowners for decades now, custom designing and installing gorgeous premium entry doors.

  • Note: For reference, you can learn more about where we do and don’t go on our Service Area page.

These are premium replacement entryway doors that we install (we aren’t a retailer), manufactured for a precision fit and transformative impacts.

One of the most significant features we help homeowners in your position learn about is, of course, glass.

As you consider all the different parts of a new high-quality entry door system, privacy is a huge element.

  • How well do you want people to be able to see inside your particular doorway? For some home layouts, the door faces living and social rooms, while for others, they don’t show much more than a hallway.
  • There are many different levels of privacy glass, from basically zero privacy or just a regular door window to total privacy where it’s impossible to see what’s behind the door.
  • Aesthetics plays a significant role, not only with what’s directly inside the doorway but also what’s around! It doesn’t make much sense to have high-privacy glass in your door if nearby windows and sidelites have none.

The truth is, all exterior door manufacturers add privacy options. Some are more basic, while others emphasize privacy and different artistic textured glass options.

We work with three Premium Entry Door Brands: Therma-true, Masonite, and Jeld-Wen.

If you head to the Jeld-Wen page, we’ve included 50 images from our entry door galleries, and you’ll see a wide variety of different privacy glass doors we’ve installed.

For example, here’s one with basically no privacy and clear glass (mahogany grain; factory-painted Tricorn Black):

And here’s another with the double aesthetic value of full-privacy Frosted Glass complemented by a beautiful wrought-iron Mediterranean Grille pattern. We installed this for a family in San Clemente, CA.

Jeld-Wen is great for taking classic, traditional grid styles and adding layers of unique features on top. You can choose clear glass, bath the inside of your entryway with light, or tone it down while making it more challenging to know what you see behind the textured glass.

Here are some example patterns they offer.

And we haven’t even begun to talk about how amazing you can make your glass in the process of ensuring it’s impossible to see through. For example, look at this door here.

Decorative glass adds so many incredible options! You can still brighten up the space, layer on unique architectural style, and get high-performance glass simultaneously.

The process of adding privacy to a door is quite fun when you work with experts who truly understand what we like to refer to as door science. Here in Orange County, CA, we help our customers really make statements with their entry doors.

Because you’ve got so many options, it’s easy to get lost in the details. After installing thousands of them, we’ve learned how to make the process much more convenient and enjoyable for you.
