3 Unexpected Ways to Use Garage Glass Doors February 11, 2019

3 Unexpected Ways to Use Garage Glass Doors , Williamsport, Pennsylvania

Garage glass doors are attractive and functional choices – even when you use them in other locations than your garage. Many modern architectural designs incorporate sliding, swinging, and rolling garage glass doors into the home, either as part of the original design or during the process of converting a garage to a finished living space. Here are three reasons this approach works so well.

Why Use Garage Glass Doors in Home Design

1. Let the Light In

A garage glass door can take the place of an entire wall, letting in as much natural light as possible. Even better, if you have skylights, rolling the door open won't cut them off, so you'll still get as much light as possible. Garage glass doors can be treated with privacy tints, so you don't have to worry about your neighbors seeing into your living room. 

2. Easy Access

A garage glass door lets the fresh air in and allows you and your guests to move easily between your living room and outdoor entertainments. A grill or a pool outside the door makes this an unbeatable party space. The glass can be insulated, ensuring that you won’t lose out on heating and cooling costs. 

3. Unique Look

A moving wall of glass is right in line with modern aesthetic sensibilities because it combines a sleek, clean look with convenient function. This feature will not only be enjoyable for you, it will also boost the curb appeal of your home, so when it's time to sell, you're more likely to attract higher offers.
