Synonymous with sophistication, the glass door gains more and more space when it comes to decoration. Its translucent appearance and minimal thickness enchant the small residences that seek to integrate the environments of the house.
One of the advantages of glass doors is the naturalness in which the transition of the environments takes place, without the necessity of a complete closure of the space. This way, it is possible to keep track of the outside and the inside appearance for environments that need a certain privacy, without blocking the entrance and exit of light.
Another advantage of glass door is the versatility in composition with furniture and coatings. Being a neutral material, the glass fits in virtually any decorating style!
There are three ways to use glass doors:
- Socialization between environments : kitchen and integrated services area, private Home Office, a more private closet, apartment balconies etc.

- Optimization of space : the sliding door is perfect for this proposal! They are used in small environments because it takes up little space and allows for greater functionality.
