Summer has finally arrived, and having spent a lot more time in our homes than usual this past year, you might be thinking about all of the improvements you want to make to your living space! Perhaps lockdown has got you yearning for more room, a change in layout or more natural light in your home. If, like many, you now find yourself working from home too, then this can definitely change how you feel about your space and create a need for a few upgrades.
Your glazing can have a huge impact on your home, and choosing the right doors and windows can truly transform your living space. So, don’t move, improve! Here are five ways you can elevate your home simply with glazing…
Open up your home with bifold doors
Bifold doors are extremely popular, and it’s easy to see why. Giving you the ability to open up a wall in your home, thanks to their accordion-style folding design, and connect your interior with your exterior. Bifold doors can not only help you to integrate your home with nature they will allow the natural light to flood into your kitchen, living room or dining room. A great option for those who love to host and spend time in the garden with the family. If you want to get a bit creative with your glazing, Kloeber’s bespoke bifold doors are available in any RAL colour. Pink bifold doors anyone?
Introduce a rooflight
If the space and layout of your home doesn’t lend itself to bifold doors, there are other ways you can introduce more natural light into the home. Rooflights are a fantastic way to do just this! Sit back and watch the clouds float by with this fantastic glazing solution. There are generally two design options available, pitched and flat rooflights, and it depends on your roof style as to which is suitable for your home. Pitched rooflights are brilliant for adding not only extra natural light to your home, but height too, creating a larger sense of space. If your roof is flat, you can still benefit from flat rooflights, whilst they won’t add height, they are a sleek and sophisticated option that will maximise the natural daylight.
Consider fixed glazing
If you have a wall where an opening window or door isn’t suitable, but you’d still like to let the light in, then why not consider installing fixed glazing? Bring light to the darkest corners of your home with a fixed frame of glass without an opening. You’ll still be able to enjoy plenty of beautiful light and perhaps a beautiful view too!
Go minimalist with sliding doors
If you’re thinking about upgrading your patio doors, or perhaps adding patio doors to an extension, then sliding doors might be just what you’re looking for. If you want a high glass to frame ratio, these UberSlide sliding doors are ideal, thanks to their minimal 20mm sightlines. With that stunning ‘barely there’ frame, your home will be transformed into a bright and airy living space with these stylish doors.
Don’t forget internal glazing too
Working from home now? Distractions around the house can be extremely off-putting when you’re trying to focus on a deadline, and if you don’t have a spare room, why not consider partitioning off an existing room with internal bifold doors? They provide a great way to create a dedicated working space without the hassle of building work, or even, moving. Thanks to their ability to fold open, and with the glass panels, you won’t feel as though your living space has shrunk either.
