Glass is playing a big role in modern architecture and design with many contemporary homes finished with large glass fronts allowing lots of natural light to flow through the house. But it’s not just the exterior of homes where glass is starting to play a role in design. Inside many homes today glass plays a big part in the overall look and feel of the home. From glass tiled walls to glazed doors, glass can really impact on the interiors of your home. Here’s just a few advantages to considering glass interior doors for your home.
Advantages of glass internal doors Let light flow throughout your home
Large external windows and skylights are popular ways of distributing more natural light around many homes and they can often make small rooms look much larger than they actually are. The same goes for glazed interior doors. Glazed doors can be a great addition for smaller rooms in particular as the addition of light to the room makes it seem bigger. For this reason, glazed doors are popular in many apartments where owners wish to maximise the interior space. Glazed doors can also work well as an entry point to an open plan surroundings like a living room / dining room as it allows light to flow through the room into the hallway, maximising the space around your home. Glazed doors can also bring rooms together, something that traditional panelled doors just don’t do as well.
Easily see from one room to another
Whether it’s in your home or office, glazed doors can help you easily see from one room to another. As obvious as this may seem but the transparency of glazed doors is a big bonus if you have young children in your home or if you want to have an open plan effect to your office but still have some privacy for certain departments. Being able to see from one room to another is a big thing in terms of safety in your home as you can keep an eye on things at all times. If you are in the kitchen and have children in another room, glazed doors can give you that added piece of mind of being able to keep an eye on what is going on the opposite room.
Another benefit of considering glazed doors for your home is that glass reflects sound. This means that glass is particularly good for rooms like the living room or a games room or entertainments room in which you might have a large TV or even speakers. The addition of glass to your doors, along with glazed windows helps you create a sound insulated area, perfect for those big sporting moments or movies that you want to watch from the peace of your own home. Some homeowners may only consider glazed doors for one or two rooms, so if you are considering glazed doors and only planning on a minimal impact, consider your main TV room and the benefits of sound.
A modern look
Much like the exterior of a home, glazed internal doors give a nice modern look and feel to the interior of your home. With modern appliances now becoming the norm in many homes, adding glazed doors is a great way to upgrade older, more traditional fixtures in your home like your interior doors.
Glass doors can also help communication, both in the home and workplace (perhaps more so in the workspace). If you have glass doors in your office it often makes communication easier as co-workers can see you approaching easily. Walls and doors can at times constrain the space of your home or office, but glass panels open it up more, removing those barriers.
