Ever since the movie Office Space, cubicles have gotten a bit of a bad rap. However, not all office cubicles are created equal, and the reality is that not all office cubicles have to reek of institutional gray burlap the way they did in the cult classic movie. In fact, utilizing various levels of transparency, metal framing, and alternate finishes, office cubicles can actually help to contribute towards a sleek and beautiful office décor rather than detracting from it.
Most of us are familiar with the traditional bathroom mirror or even a full-length one on the back of a bedroom door. However, closet doors provide a great opportunity to visually expand the space of any room while at the same time providing the discerning dresser the opportunity to check outfits and accessories from every angle.
Of all the possibilities available when building or remodeling a home, interior pocket doors are probably the most under utilized space-saving delights in the decorating and building world. Besides enabling you to open up a room to the rest of the house, interior pocket doors buy you approximately six to ten square feet of floor space as opposed to a traditional door that requires swing space.
When trying to create two rooms out of one, most homeowners miss an incredible opportunity to allow for the flow of natural light to penetrate both rooms. Rather than merely erecting a wall or divider to separate the two spaces, interior French doors can create two distinct spaces while still allowing for light to pass from one room to the other.
When you are looking to section off portions of a large room in your home or office, many options are available to you. However, among the best options for those looking to “go green” are glass partitions. Not only are glass partitions made from fully recyclable materials, glass also allows natural light to flow throughout the areas that you have sectioned off, reducing the need for electric light and making glass partitions a more sustainable option than many other screening walls that could be installed.
Giving Bypass Doors a Second Chance
If you grew up with bypass doors on your bedroom closet, chances are you had at least one of the doors jump off the track more than once. Bypass doors are the kinds of doors usually used on closets where on door passes on a track behind the other. Though bypass doors can be a bit temperamental, especially when you are a little kid trying to slide a big closet door, they actually provide many advantages over other types of closet doors.
