    Some people would love to have that wavy glass because it provides good privacy! But...I know we all don't like the same things! Is it possible to remove those glass panes by removing the trim around the panes of wavy glass or is it a double pane side unit in an exterior door?

      Yes it is a exterior door and I thought doing that but I’m renovating this whole house and just want a easy fix I guess

    How about painting the doors, I would choose white. You could also use glass paints to colour the glass. Look on Pinterest for ideas.

    Could you get energy tax credits for replacing with insulated double pane sidelights? I want those with miniblinds in between the glas.

    If you got clear frosted glass you could get privacy and more light.

    If you could find a inexpensive glass replacement of just clear glass, you could add your own decorative way to obscure the glass. It could be a spray on frosting or film that has a pattern.

    Hi there,

    I would use Clings every time, because if you get fed-up with them you just peel them off and put on new!

    I like the glass just the way it is.......alot of privacy!! If they were plain panes,,,,,I would add stained glass decor. I say, leave well enough alone......these glass frames are gorgeous.

    Aquarium glass use clear silicone to attach them to the glass

    Paint the glass the color of the walls to help brighten up the door.

      Thank you for this idea but my door is mid entry and it’s already dark in the hallway. The door will be painted white soon.

    Since the door will soon be painted white, I would paint a design - such as a rose - on the glass. Just get a stencil of whatever flower is your favorite and use it to 'redesign' the window. It will change the whole look of the door!
