Four reasons why you should consider getting a leadlight door


There is no doubt that a leadlight door can be a stunning and elegant feature of a house, but you may not have considered getting one yourself. Here are some of the advantages of having a leadlight door.


Firstly, stained leadlight glass will let light through while preserving your privacy. If you have a simple glass panel in your door, it will be possible for passers-by and nosey neighbours to see through it into your house. With leadlight stained glass, the light can still pass through, but it will not be possible for anyone to see what you are doing. This effect can be enhanced further by using frosted glass. You should bear in mind that you will not be able to see out either, but this should not be too much of a problem with a door.

Energy savings

Leadlight glass can be placed between two panes of ordinary glass, effectively double glazing it. This will add insulation to your door, meaning you will lose less heat in cold weather and keep the heat out in the summer. This will save money on your heating and air conditioning bills and will also help to reduce your carbon footprint.

Easy customisation

Another advantage of leadlight glass doors is that you can make them to order and stamp your door with your personality. You can choose a design made up of bright colours or give a more subtle effect with softer colours. You can also choose your own design for the door and choose how much light you want to pass through the door. Instead of settling for a standard door that looks the same as everyone else's, the entrance to your house can be one that suits your overall decor, as well as your unique tastes.


As well as offering greater privacy, a double-glazed leadlight door will be much stronger than ordinary glass. It will be weather-resistant and will be much harder for an intruder to break through. You will, therefore, be offering greater protection to your family as well as improving the overall look of your house.

Using stained leadlight glass in your doors will increase the attractiveness of your house whilst improving your privacy and energy efficiency. If you think this is the right solution for you, just get in touch with your local supplier, and take the next step towards turning your house into a home.
