Interior Glass Doors Shine as Stars

Interior glass doors whether clear, frosted, multipaned, pocketed or French — may bring sun streaming through your home. And even if light were of no concern (but really, that doesn’t want more light?) , glass doors within the house can supply the perfect solution to a very common problems with flow. These two great examples show how inner glass doors may alter a home for the better.

Give your home office an interior perspective. Working at home can be a bit dreary if you are tucked away in a plain box of a room. French doors and an inside window allow the sun shine in and provide you a different scene to rest your eyes. If you want to be able to look outdoors, line up your inside doorway or window with a window at another area.

Utilize French doors to start a dark entryway. Formal vestibules can be quite dim — open up yours by replacing the solid inside doorway using a glass-paned doorway or French doors. Insert transom windows or swap out your entrance door for a glass model as well, and the light will pour in.

Dual your French door dose for better circulation. Many older Victorian and colonial homes comprise of lots of little rooms, which is less than ideal for the stream of our modern way of life. One method is by transferring the doorways, creating an enfilade. Just make sure you get expert advice before starting work if your strategy includes demolishing portions of present walls.
