Houses come in different sizes. Some houses are small and some are large. If you are thinking of ideas on how to make your small home seem more spacious you can replace the solid doors with internal glass doors.
It’s interesting as to how this works. Think about the difference a mirror makes in a small bathroom. The mirror gives the room double the amount of depth and creates the illusion of more space. It also creates the impression of light and makes the bathroom look a lot lighter naturally.
A similar concept works for glass doors. When a solid door has been installed you are basically saying that your path ends where the door starts. A barricade for anyone who wants to enter has been placed. With a glass door you can see that there is more room on the other side thus adding to the illusion of more space.
If you think about it, when a person tells you that the room behind a solid wooden door is forbidden you will take it seriously because you can’t see what is on the other side. If someone says that the room behind the glass door is forbidden you wouldn’t find it as intimidating. Why? It’s because you can see through the glass. You can see what is on the other side.
Keeping that in mind you realise how much more space you really have. The glass doors also give a modern vibe to the setting of the room and house. Most modern elements revolve around space and minimalism.
Glass doors are also a great way of adding natural light into a room without adding more windows. The light reflects through the glass and illuminates the surrounding walls. It’s the same as having windows except the window is in the door.
The main factors needed to give your house more space is transparency, light and reflection. Using these three factors you can give your home an affordable make over without having to change it too much. It works perfectly for the person who doesn’t enjoy renovation and building.
Glass doors are the ideal way to create the illusion of space in your home. You could also consider custom made glass doors depending on the design elements in your home. For example you could have wooden door fitted with stained or patterned glass to create a unique design. Whatever your preference, there’s an option for you.
