Brighten up your home with sidelights
Want to introduce more natural light into your home but haven't got the space for a set of full-blown French doors? Sidelights are perhaps your best solution. These vertical glass panels flank your external door and are made to allow more sunlight to flood into your property. Sidelights are also a key element in interior design. They are great for highlighting the importance of an entrance and making your front door stand out.
Sidelights are usually narrow and rectangular but their possibilities are endless. We've created a number of variants simply by changing the length of glass panels and the number of glazing bars. Each of our sidelights can complement a variety of door designs, allowing you to be very creative when designing the front door of your dreams. Our sidelights are also perfect matches with our collection of Scandinavian front doors. If you're looking for a replacement door, why not shop our front doors and sidelights together to give your entrance that modern Scandinavian look? If you don't feel like racking your brains, our range of doors with sidelights can surely satisfy your needs. The ten chic front door-sidelight combinations we've prepared for you can save you from having to decide which sidelight is right for your door.
The best thing about ordering sidelights with us is that you can easily customise everything using our bespoke online ordering system. However your dream entrance looks like, you can turn it into reality at Klarwindows!
The ideal sidelight for your home
Other than the look and feel you want to create for your entrance, don't forget to consider your practical needs when choosing your sidelights. Think about where your home is located and what your front door is facing. Whilst sidelights can bring more light into your entrance, they may also allow passersby to peer into your house. So if your house is located on the ground floor and your entrance is facing a busy street or path, we recommend sidelights consisting of smaller, shorter glass panels, such as Fredericia SL and Vejle SL, to help protect you against nosy neighbours. Alternatively, you may consider easy solutions such as vinyl static-cling window film and frosted glass spray if you still want the visual effect of large glass panels and the amount of natural light they bring in.
Living on a busy street enables you to take full advantage of the convenience and vibrancy of a city, but it also means you may suffer from noise pollution. Our Premium Energi+ triple glazing can provide you with that peace and quiet you need at home. With three layers of strong safety glass, our triple-glazed sidelights can effectively block out the majority of noise coming through your entrance. Our triple-glazed sidelights can also trap two layers of air between the glass panes, offering supreme thermal efficiency. With your entrance perfectly insulated, you won't have to worry about the annoying cold wind that always seeps through anymore!
Eye-catching front door ideas with sidelights
Whilst our fine range of doors with sidelights are tailored for homeowners who are all about efficiency when renovating their homes, we've come up with a few sidelight ideas to inspire those of you who are about to kickstart your DIY home renovation project.
The classic red and white
Red and white is a classic combination that never goes wrong - ideal for those of you who want your entrance to project that vintage appeal. If you're shopping front doors with us, select the colour 'Brown Red' when you're customising your front door using our configurator. As for your sidelights, we recommend Odense SL and Aalborg SL. With multiple glazing bars, these sidelight designs divide the long glass panel into small sections, giving your classic colour combination that modern kick.
Wooden front door with matching double sidelights
If you want your property to look more expensive than it actually is, this is the look you want to go for. A brown wooden door with matching double sidelights is guaranteed to give your entrance that traditional, luxurious feel. Select 'Mahogany Brown' using our configurator when shopping both your front door and sidelights. With two sidelights flanking your front door, the entrance to your property will look bigger and wider. This further enhances the glamour of your brown wooden front door. Again, we recommend styles with glazing bars that divide glass panels into small sections. For example, pairing Helsingør with Roskilde SL will give your entrance that laid-back glamour.
Go all black
We understand the popularity of the modern industrial look among homeowners, and therefore we've come up with this sidelight idea that blends seamlessly into any industrial home design. A solid black door such as Linköbing and Umeå paired with black sidelights featuring multiple glazing bars will never fail to project that modern industrial chic. Simply select the colour 'Deep Black' on our configurator when ordering both your front door and sidelights to achieve that coherent look.
Maximise your privacy
Love the visual emphasis that glass can generate but don't want to provide a view for nosy passersby? Match Halmstad, Holstebro or Taastrup with Fredericia SL to maximise your privacy level. The small panes of glass featuring in this combination decorate your entrance whilst restricting the view from outside your front door. They also allow some sunlight to enter and brighten up your hallway.
Level up your French doors
If you have the luxury to have a set of beautiful French doors at your entrance, why not take them to the next level by matching them with double sidelights? Sidelights make the extensive opening of your French door look even larger, intensifying the luxurious vibe your French doors are already projecting. Go all out with the most enormous panes of glass you can find to maximise the amount of natural light and allow a flawless connection between your home and the outdoor.
For creative homeowners, sidelights are some of the best elements to work with. You can get as creative as possible by mixing and matching different sidelight and front door designs. If you're looking to give the entrance to your home a brand new look, our variety of sidelights is going to give you endless possibilities.
