To See or Not to See....

I've got a little bit of a challenge. When we initially signed the contract for the new house, I said I was okay with the choice of front door.

Now I am thinking I hate it.

The door that comes with our model is full glass, similar to this : The glass on it, is mottled, so you can't really see through, and initially I liked the idea that it would let it so much light.....

But now I am thinking I don't really want people to be able to see into the house at all. From a privacy standpoint, even being able to see whether there are lights on, farther into the house, feels like a problem for me.

The other option we have, is a door similar to this one:

There are still windows in it, to let in light, but I won't have to worry so much about privacy, or seeing the back of wreaths thru the door, for that matter.

Well, as luck would have it, as I was writing this post, I heard from the project manager and spoke with her about it. She's gonna look into making sure we can change our door if we want.

What do you think?? Do you have either of these door styles??

Yeah, I would be nervous with a fully opened glass front door too...thankfully it would never go with the style of house we have, so it would never cross my mind. I get nervous opening the window blinds past seven pm though so maybe I am not the best to ask :)
