3 ways slim sliding doors maximise space and light

Maximising space and light have always been common themes connecting homeowners throughout history & across the globe, irrelevant of location, affluence or lifestyle. Research has proven how natural lighting notably stimulates productivity, happiness, health and wellbeing, so it’s hardly surprising that we all want a little more light in our lives! With space and light affecting so many aspects of our individual personal growth, allow us to elaborate on how our ultra-slim sliding door systems can breathtakingly amplify space and light throughout your own home.

1. When doors become walls

We’ve seen a notable increase in the use of internal sliding glass doors firmly embedded within the latest interior design strategies. This increasingly fashionable interior design alternative is known as ‘broken plan’ living, where sliding glass doors are positioned internally to effectively ‘zone’ open plan spaces. Focused on intelligent use of space, areas are clearly designated, e.g. relaxing, socialising, eating, working, etc, with the help of contoured glass doors as well as different floor finishes, split-levels and semi-permanent partitions.

Ultra-slim sliding glass doors like ours expertly transition homes from open plan to broken plan living with ease, thanks to their enviable 99% glass-to-frame ratio; allowing end users to open and close spaces without having to concede on essential air, light and space. Broken plan living also eliminates the drawbacks associated with open plan living, such as heating difficulties, noise and privacy issues; especially with the use of ultra-slim sliding glass doors.

2. Enlightening innovation

Aluminium sliding glass doors are ideal for creating the on-trend “moving glass wall” effect that’s all the rage with high-end homeowners. Able to breathe new life into the darkest of spaces lacking in natural light, slimline sliding glass doors keep the light flowing throughout troublesome areas such as corner kitchens and south facing rooms.

3. Expanding your horizons

Understandably, the main reason behind moving is ultimately down to a lack of space. Slim sliding door installation is a great way to avoid the stress of moving to a new house, whilst simultaneously adding considerable value and kerb appeal. Able to effectively fuse indoor spaces with the outside, large sliding doors dispel any feelings of claustrophobia for good. Desirably reflecting the space, sliding doors can also be positioned to go in and out of wall cavities as a clever space saving solution.
