As with any kind of design, home designs have evolved over the years. Instead of being dominated by heavy brick or lumber, many homeowners are now integrating glass into their designs or renovations to bring a light and airy feel into living spaces.
This can be done in various ways including larger windows, skylights and mirrors, but have you considered adding a glass door? These kinds of doors are an easy way to bring natural light into your home. Depending on their design, glass doors can also expand your home and integrate the outdoors with your indoor living spaces. But some people hesitate – usually for reasons that are easily debunked.
Myth #1: A lack of privacy
People think that more glass means less privacy. However, in today’s market, there are a number of different kinds of blinds, shades and other door treatments that can be applied based on your personal tastes.
And these treatments don’t have to be the same old Venetian blinds or regular curtains either; choices such as Roman shades, blackout curtains or solar roller shades will give you different looks, moderate the amount of light, and various levels of privacy. Another solution to consider is frosting the glass in order to bring in light but provide a greater level of privacy on a 24/7 basis.
