Unique ways of using sliding doors in your home | WindowArt

Sliding doors are making a unique comeback in home design décor, especially with adoption of hanging art deco wooden barn doors. While this is very much the ‘it’ trend of the moment. In fact, utilising glass sliding doors in different ways and areas of your home can breathe some new life (and light) into your home. 

Glass sliding doors have for all intents and purposes been used to separate the interior from the outside patios and the like. However, this is no longer the case as you can bring glass sliding doors into your home to spruce up and modify your décor.

Glass is a timeless home style element

Whether you have a big double story entrance enhanced by a floor to ceiling glass window or a beautiful reading nook in which you can soak up the sun, glass is a décor element that will never go out of style. 

It’s the way in which you use glass in your home that can help keep your style up-to-date. Most homes, new and old are built to optimise natural light and you’re bound to find a sliding door leading to the outside area. But why not use glass doors as part of your interior design in your home to create an open and modern feel?

There are many different ways to incorporate glass sliding doors inside your home

If you have an open plan home, it’s likely that you don’t want to use doors to divide different areas as you want to maintain the flow from one space to the next. With sliding doors, you can still separate areas without taking away from your open plan living style. Installing sliding doors in between living spaces such as the dining room, study and entertainment area gives you control over the ambience, privacy and sound levels. You can even make use of stackable glass doors to completely open up or enclose a space when required.
