In part one of this two-part blog series, we went over some of the primary benefits of installing larger doors or window walls in your next home remodeling or renovation project. These products have become very popular among homeowners in recent years, bringing a combination of great lighting and a modern aesthetic to many potential areas of the home.
At Peach Building Products, we’re happy to offer a wide range of window and door options, from a huge selection of entry doors and patio doors to various replacement windows and many other pieces. What are some of the additional benefits of larger doors, window walls or related products as part of your remodel? Here are a few to keep in mind.
When it comes to space in the home, there are really two types: Actual space and perceived space. While only a renovation will change the actual space dimensions in any room or home, there are many themes that may impact perceived space.
And for those looking for a larger perceived space, window walls and larger doors are an ideal option. These large glass openings make the space feel much larger, with expanses of glass running from floor to ceiling. There’s less confinement than traditional walls, plus more opening to the space outside. Rooms feel like they have fewer boundaries, a particular benefit for smaller areas or those with compact floor plans.
For those who are looking to modernize their home’s aesthetic, large glass openings are one of the top trends today. The single-material palette is enormously popular in today’s design world, whether that material is glass or something else like wood, steel or even sheetrock.
The floor-to-ceiling glass theme brings tons of light and openness, plus eliminates the need for trim work around smaller windows. And for those who may think of selling their home at any point in the future, window walls and related large glass openings are hugely valuable on the market today.
Finally, window walls and other glass openings are highly customizable. They can be sized to fit almost any opening with the right structure, plus remove the need for any framing-out of partial walls above and below more traditional windows.
Beyond this, these options come in several material varieties, including fiberglass, wood, steel and aluminum. They can be customized in several ways: From frame profile and depth to fixed glass options, operable window or door inserts and more. They even have several performance options you may choose, such as low-E or high-performance glazing or even those with acoustical properties.
