The design of glass garage doors has evolved, making it even more stylish than before. Due to that, it’s a pity if you can explore the possibilities of using the garage doors in other spaces beyond your garage. These ideas might inspire you to do just that!
In this example, glass garage doors were used on a lower-level cabana. Even Dan Nelson, AIA, Principal at Designs Northwest Architects has finished several projects involving glass garage doors. They used the doors to open up rooms to outdoors.
Nelson also installed a glass overhead door in his office to function as a security door between the office and stairwell.
There are other things you can do with glass garage doors. Rob Reyes at Glass Garage Doors & Entry Systems installed those doors in almost every room of the house. His team installed them in kitchens, family rooms, pool houses, dens, bedrooms, and more. In short, the garage glass doors are versatile and can be used not only for your garage but also anywhere in the house.
What you need to consider before using a glass garage door in your home is to opt for insulated glass when you use glass overhead doors between exterior and interior. Reyes also suggested to make sure the doors have a good weather seal at the head of the door and the jamb.
These roll-up glass garage doors would make any home more awesome, wouldn’t it? Rick Gehrke even stated that a home with such glass has a huge selling point, specifically if you want to live or have a view in a warmer area. This type of garage door will increase the value of a home and it will be more popular in the near future.
The roll-up glass door is an ideal wall replacement and it could give an indoor living space some expansion outdoors. However, make sure the door is insulated before you use it. What’s more, the roll-up glass garage door is actually cheaper than the traditional sliding door. So if you look for a cheaper alternative, why not try incorporating this door into your home?
