    Hi again

    Just wondered what the consenus was on this. We're having a double porch built so we get two windows-obe big and one small. The big one will be next to door with the small one around the side. Have seen quite a few nearby with clear but just wanted to see what the experts feel.

    Many thanks

    I think it depends how far you are away from the road or footpaths. I have clear glass in my front door so that I can see what's going on in the front garden (!) and I'm happy with it, but a few friends/neighbours have commented that it's not their cup of tea.

    Are you a 'net curtain' kind of guy?

    There is no regulatory requirement, and in the context of what a porch is, and intended to be used for, then there is no need for obscure glass.

    Not a "net curtain" kind of guy but was thinking about people being able to see mail piled up if we were on holiday etc etc.

    Er indoors can't make up her mind so has passed the buck to me.

    You could have clear glass with a blind? or fit 'one way film' on the inside?

    Just a thought.
