Glass doors are a gorgeous way of opening up a home to create more visual space and brighten up any room. Letting in natural light not only looks beautiful, but helps to save on electricity as well. Glass doors are an especially nice option for homeowners with pets, particularly cats or dogs who like to look outside and watch the natural wildlife roam about.
So, if you wish to open up your home and let the light in, here are 5 types of glass doors sure to make any room look like a million bucks.
1. Hinged Single Door
A hinged single door is a very modern style of door that can vary in pattern and overall design. Hinged doors can be used for either external or internal use and can swing inwards, outwards, or both, depending on what you choose.
2. Bi-Fold Doors
Bi-fold doors are comprised of glass panels that can be either framed or frameless. Typically made up of two or more panels, they can be folded or run along a sill track, which can help to create the illusion of a larger interior to the house.
3. Pivot Doors
While not as common, pivot doors offer a unique design for the homeowner who likes to stand out from the crowd. Pivot doors, like the name suggest, can open and close in any direction. These are ideal for large interior openings and can be used to create a stunningly modern room divider or a visually interesting entryway to your garden or patio.
4. Sliding Doors
One of the more popular types of glass door, sliding doors consist of a glass panel that runs along a track parallel to the wall structure of a home. Sliding doors save on space and are a great option for those who want to open up the room of a small home or apartment. They’re also one of the most affordable options to install and maintain.
5. Stacking Doors
Similar to sliding doors, stacking doors function in a similar fashion, but with more moving panels. As the panels move, they affect the one adjacent to them, causing a domino effect in which each door is pushed in place. The interlocking door panels add greater security and weather protection compared with a traditional sliding glass door. Their unique design also makes it easier for these doors to span across long rooms, essentially creating a wall of glass that fills the interior of your home with sunshine.
