Sliding Glass Barn Doors

One new trend in home design and décor are interior barn doors constructed of custom tempered glass. Barn doors slide in from the side and are hung by a support rod from above so they barely skim the floor. These can be a great way to separate a bedroom or bathroom while allowing in light and creating a sense of increased square footage.

Sliding Frosted Glass Doors

Glass doors are great for light and a sense of openness, but in some areas where privacy is a concern, frosted sliding glass may be more appropriate. This can be useful in bathrooms or where your sliding doors may expose you to foot traffic or exposed views from neighbors. Frosted glass can eliminate the need for window treatments which can be tricky with glass doors.

Sliding Glass Room Dividers and Partitions

In both residential and commercial space, glass can divide rooms or create partitions. This can segment off areas of your home or business while leaving unobstructed views to create a sense of space. To add an element of privacy, you can top with blinds or dramatic drapes that can be drawn when light or the view needs blocked to offer the best of both worlds.

Sliding Glass with Rice Paper Shades

If you’re a fan of Asian elements in décor, sliding glass doors and windows can be complemented with rice paper shades that can block light, enhance privacy, and offer a non-traditional window treatment option that takes you beyond drapery or blinds. This type of enhanced sliding glass door can dress up a residence, condo, or business design.

Sliding Glass Movable Walls

Movable walls can optimize space and make it configurable on demand, but most walls that can slide are less than attractive. Movable sliding glass doors and walls can be more stylish. Sliding glass walls around a conference space in an office or between work spaces can be a great way to make the most of space that’s only needed on certain occasions.

Sliding Glass Closet Doors

Closet doors that swing out can prove problematic for space while accordion-style closet doors can prevent access to full closet space. In contrast, sliding glass closet doors don’t take up floor space in the room, allow unfettered access, and can be designed with frosted glass to keep clutter out of sight or clear glass to show off rows off well-organized space.
