Exterior Glass Doors LongmontWith the start of summer right around the corner, you’re probably planning on spending a lot more time outside and wouldn’t it be nice to bring the outdoors in as well? Nothing blends an indoor and outdoor living room better than floor to ceiling glass. Colorado Glass Solutions in Longmont has a wide selection of glass door and wall styles to create the indoor/outdoor living space you’ve been dreaming of for your home.

There have been many recent developments beyond the traditional sliding patio door- now there are entire sliding or folding wall panels that totally erase the boundary between your living room and backyard. Besides literally bringing the outside in during temperate weather, these glass wall systems have the benefit of flooding your interior with natural light in the colder seasons. The configurations of glass walls can be limitless with the option to have some panels fixed and others operable along a track mounted in the floor and ceiling. Accordion systems are another very popular option- the panels can’t be as wide so you will see more vertical supports but when folded in their open position, they take up less space. And since they fold and slide together, you can open them as much or as little as you’d prefer.

If these high tech glass wall systems don’t compliment your style, there are always classic French doors or customizable traditional sliding doors. We can turn any glass door into a unique stylistic feature with custom glass finishes, etching or stained glass. Remember that adding glass always makes your home feel brighter and larger while bringing a view of the outdoors in.

Colorado Glass Solutions in Longmont offers glass doors and walls to fit every budget from the best manufacturers to ensure lasting craftsmanship- call us today to design your indoor/outdoor living space!

Adding Glass Doors or Walls Inside your Home

Glass doors Longmont

One thing a house can never have too much of is natural light and glass can make your home feel open and airy not only with windows but also with interior glass walls and doors. Besides bringing in more sunlight, installing more glass in your home can also help make the spaces flow better from one room to the next. Colorado Glass Solutions of Longmont can give your home the bright, open layout you desire by installing a variety of glass doors and walls.

Here are 5 Reasons to Add a Glass Door or Wall in Your Home:

1. Bring the outside in. Whether you look out onto a breathtaking landscape or a beautiful garden, replacing a view-blocking wall with a glass partition will still keep the rooms separated while extending your view. Bumping out a room with a floor to ceiling bay window is another very special way to enjoy nature from the comfort of inside your home.
2. Open up a small interior. If you don’t have a lot of square footage, one of the best ways to make your layout feel larger is to swap out several solid surfaces with glass. Consider adding transom windows, a glass stair railing and multipaned or pocketed glass doors.
3. Hide an unsightly area. The laundry room and closets are two spaces in our homes that are hard to keep tidy. Blocking these areas with frosted glass doors keeps the mess hidden.
4. Help define a home office while not closing it off. Adding French doors or translucent pocket doors can give you the needed privacy to work while not feeling shut in.
5. Highlight a favorite feature. If you have an architectural detail like an original brick wall, consider installing a glass wall to keep the feature visible from multiple areas.

Glass doors and walls not only add elegance to your home and open up the space by bringing more light in, they also can help solve problems of flow. If you think adding a glass door or wall to your home is just the solution you’ve been looking for, let the professionals at Colorado Glass Solutions in Longmont give you the bright and airy feeling you’re looking for!
