Light is an essential component of any contemporary abode. To get the desired protection without reducing illumination, modern residences make use of natural materials such as hardwood flooring, marble countertops, and metal banisters and lamps. The integration of an iron door, in particular, is noteworthy. The strength of the steel makes the door a deterrent to trespassers, while the presence of movable windows provides ventilation and sunshine at the same time. A wooden or fiberglass door with added windows is not nearly as aesthetically pleasing nor as secure. An iron entrance can guarantee brightness will enter the entryway but keep undesirables out. An even more delightful effect is achieved when sidelights and a transom, or in cases of lofty entries, a halo of light atop the doorway, are added.
