Double glazing worth the $$ in Perth?

Old house (1940's) front door non standard

Customised Main Door
I think you could buy a plain door and get a skin laser cut in corten steel which you bond to the door. That will give you a relief design that will last... just let it rust.

Check out a product called Lumisty. It is expensive but it precisely controls the view into the window. Maybe it's what you want.
