1) Curb Appeal
Let’s be honest, it’s always about curb appeal. Whether you are selling or just trying to keep up with the “Joneses” adding a door with a window can make your home look more aesthetically pleasing. If you are really creative, think about using stained glass. There are plenty of great styles available. You could even go for a custom design. You could incorporate your house number, your initials, or some of your favorite imagery or maybe even a family crest?
2) Natural Light
There’s nothing quite like sunlight streaming into your home. It, literally, can brighten your day. Natural light is one of the best ways to help the interior of a home feel more spacious and inviting. With a front door with a window, you gain additional lighting that will brighten your entryway, allowing you to make a great impression with guests. Depending on the size of the window the added light can even provide some extra warmth during the winter.

If privacy is a major concern for you, then think about the stained glass mentioned above or adding frosted tint.
