It’s not often that you’ll see a sliding glass door used as the front entrance to a home, even if you see it commonly used on different types of businesses. This isn’t because a sliding glass door is impractical; it’s just unconventional. When attached to residential properties, sliding glass doors are often used to access the back patio or the back porch or the wraparound deck. Let’s have a look at some of the benefits associated with this example of home improvement.
Stand Out in Your Neighborhood
Replacing the doors and windows of your home can make a dramatic statement and become a talking point among your neighbors – and while they’ll be envious, you can still be proud of the changes you’ve made without being too outlandish. A sliding glass door can improve the view you have. Being able to look out at the woods or the pond in your yard without needing to go outside if you’re worried about the heat and mosquitoes is a win-win situation.
Customize Your Home
Another benefit of adding sliding glass doors is that you gain more avenues for expressing your creativity, Even when you don’t have to means to design and begin the construction process on a full-scale renovation or remodel of your home, you can still find ways to customize the way your home looks, both inside and out. The glass can feature two types of grid patterns – flat or raised. Changing up the hardware finishes can also add a pop of color that you can use to impress potential homebuyers when you are ready to sell; brushed nickel and oil-rubbed bronze are trendy looks that aren’t likely to fade away anytime soon. You can also play around with different window treatments that you didn’t think were possible before.
Prioritize Energy Efficiency
More and more homeowners are starting to address the issue of energy efficiency. Upgrading the windows in your home can make better use of natural light, which reduces dependence on artificial lights. Sliding glass doors can also help you make energy efficiency a priority in your household. At the same time, you don’t want heat gain or heat loss, making you feel uncomfortable in your own home. Whatever glass you choose for your sliding doors, make sure that it is Energy Star rated first.
Experiment with Different Models
If you are reluctant to give sliding glass doors another chance, then take a minute to reflect on why this is: perhaps once upon a time, you lived in an older home that went without enough upkeep, and the security bar continually fell off, or the vertical blinds wouldn’t stay on? Well, those days are over now. By experimenting with different models of sliding glass door, you can find the right one for your home.
