We need to consider several factors when deciding which type of glass door we want to use as our office doors. The style will depend on our individual needs.
How much privacy do you need? Do we need visual privacy as well as acoustic privacy? What kind of access do you need among rooms? Do you want the doors to be quiet, or is some sound acceptable? These are all things you need to consider before deciding on a style.
Glass pocket doors are a popular option for smaller floor space where space saving is necessary. They offer a clean style that allows light to flow freely but works differently from a traditional door. They slide neatly away and tuck out of sight, making them great for spaces requiring flexibility.
Sliding doors made of glass and metal have been around for a while now, and we are somewhat accustomed to seeing them in homes, but perhaps not so much in offices. However, they are a significant element to incorporate if you are low on space. Not only do they save space by now swinging open, but they can make a space seem bigger just because they are made of glass and create the illusion of space. Popular options for their trim colors are white and black, but there is room for other colors in the modern office.
French doors are a great option if you want to make a statement. They are more suited to larger office spaces and can be framed with either metal or wood. French doors are a good option for both interior doors and exterior doors, and they can lend themselves to both a modern and traditional finish.
Traditionally French doors were frames in white trims or simple wood trims, but that is also evolving, and the world is slowly moving away from incorporating too much white into office spaces. Unfortunately, it can lead to eye fatigue feelings of isolation.
Clear glass doors are suitable for shared spaces where employees need a little bit of privacy but do not necessarily need it in abundance. It extends the illusion of floor space and ceiling and can make a room look much bigger than it necessarily is.
Clear glass doors are a popular option when you have one large room that needs to be divided into two rooms, one way or another. They allow for the free flow of light but do not much to protect from sound. You also have the option of having them fitted with frames or fitted without frames.
Frosted glass doors can be an excellent alternative to clear doors if you are concerned about privacy. Frosted glass still allows for some light to enter but reduces glare from direct sunlight. Frosted glass is popular for exterior and interior doors, and frosted glass can be used on both sliding or French doors and any other kind of glass door.
This type of door offers a little bit more privacy than even frosted glass doors do. There is protection against sound pollution and sound sharing in this type of door, and there is space between the two panes of glass for blinds to add that bit of extra privacy. This will also give more flexibility than wood does.
