Sidelights and transoms in the entryway of a house provide natural light, view of the outdoors, and architectural character. A floor-to-ceiling wall of glass provides natural light and a scenic view. Dormer windows and skylights are window choices that also provide natural light as well as a unique design element. Clerestory windows are perfect for lighting without sacrificing privacy. Bay windows are elegant and very functional too. Stained glass can be incorporated into various window types to add artistic flair.
