Front Entry Glass Door - Obscure glass or just a film?

10 years ago

Hi all,

I love the feedback here, and you all are great. Here's our recent debate:

We are building a modern-style house. The front entry door is going to be a large, all-glass door. Although the entry way provides a bit of buffer, it is a very open floor plan, so if you are standing at the door, you can see directly into the family room. People at the street are less of an issue.

Based on privacy, we are considering going with partially frosted glass (on the right side of the door, viewed from exterior) to minimize the view. But that would be permanent. So we are also considering using a film instead, but are worried about how long that will last and whether it has the same quality.

What are your thoughts? Should we obscure? If so, frost the glass or film?

Thanks in advance
