The sidelight beside the front door was a problem for me, wondering how to cover it or even should I cover it.
Deciding to cover it was an easy decision after I came home one evening, now that it is dark early and found I could see from the front door right thru to the back, standing on the street.
Measured the sidelight 9 1/2 inches wide 59 inches long.
Off to many, many stores I went to find a rod and sheer.
One would think a fairly easy thing to find after all so many homes have this feature.
Several stores later I came to the conclusion that I would not find exactly what I wanted unless I had a special order done or had a blind. Did not want a blind. Found the rod and a single panel that I had to shorten. The panel sheer is about 4 times the width of the sidelight so there is no problem of anyone seeing in it anymore.
Here is the door from the front.
My question now is do I cover the door glass?
I will always keep a seasonal wreath on it and just walking or driving by one can't see in. I like the light in the foyer and was surprised much the light decreased having the sheer covering the sidelight.
