Why Choose a Sliding Glass Door?

Sliding glass doors are a practical alternative choice to swinging doors. One reason to choose sliding glass doors over swinging doors is the additional opening space, which can be double that of a regular doorway’s opening if not more. If a swinging door has no clearance and may be obstructed from opening completely, you may want to consider sliding doors. A regular annoyance of swinging doors is that they can damage your walls, furniture, or appliances and become damaged themselves over time. The practicality of sliding doors is that they won’t hit walls or other objects like regular doors. Finally, sliding glass doors can be custom-cut to fit over any opening.

Interior Sliding Glass Doors

Not only do sliding glass doors transmit more sunlight into dark living spaces, but they also create an illusion of open space. Sliding glass doors offer privacy via tinted or opaque glass while creating a flow between rooms. Consider adding a sliding glass door to a den, office space, dining room, or other room where you need more light but want added privacy.

Modern Barn Door | Sliding Glass Doors

The Laguna series is a modern take on classic wood barn doors. You can customize your sliding glass door tints: gray, bronze, frosted, and HD Glass, the clearest glass on the market. If you want privacy, we suggest a darker tint or the frosted tint, which is an opaque white.

Tinted Glass & Solar Orientation

Whereas most rooms need additional natural light, you can also choose a gray glass to filter out too much light. You may consider gray glass for a bedroom or other room that overheats or receives a glare from direct sunlight. West-facing rooms tend to heat up during the late afternoon due to the room’s direct orientation to the sun. On the contrary, south-facing rooms receive little sunlight and would need HD glass to receive more natural sunlight.
