Interior door that provides light and privacy...ugh
February 14, 2013 in Design Dilemma
We are considering adding an in-law suite, but the only place to build will result in losing the only south-facing window in our living room. It was suggested that we replace the window with a glass (French?) door, and make sure that the newly-built sitting room has south-facing windows directly behind it (about 20' from the current window). BUT - the new inhabitant's furniture/decor is quite different from ours, and we'll both want privacy, so we're trying to get the light-benefit of glass without the downside of two styles that don't match. Glass that obscures seems to also cut down dramatically on light, and at least one party objects to any leading in the glass. ANY ideas?
