Receiving Recognition for Quality Work

Being a glass door and glass wall partition manufacturer, we exist in a growing design industry filled with hundreds of wonderfully skilled competitors. It is always a great compliment when we receive thoughtful recognition from some of the best interior design and architectural magazines and publications out there.

After years and years of hard work, company expansion, fantastic customer relationships and displaying a consistently high level of craftsmanship, we’ve enjoyed a good volume of written praise. With recognition from Dwell, Architectural Record, HGTV, Los Angeles Times, Elle Decor, and more, we feel proud to serve the greater U.S. with our space optimizing partitions and flexible design solutions.

What Makes Us So Unique?

We have arrived at an exciting new standard of architectural and interior design, that is centered around the concept of flexibility. Vast open floor plans, geometric modernism, and nods to the outside elements are all defining cultural narratives of this time. Working within this vast industry, we have made our mark on interiors with our stylish and smooth glass doors, modern sliding doors, various wall partitions, and other innovative spatial solutions. Available in hundreds of configurations, we offer customization as a defining characteristic of our company. We believe that each client should have the option to choose between various glass opacities, handles, and other accessories, frame finishes, and the overall door design. Customization allows the individual to integrate our pieces within their space with intention and purpose. Some fall in love with our modern sliding glass barn doors, while others opt for a more class design, such as a frameless sliding door.

We’ve got Your Closets Covered

For many, the issue of drab closets with equally drab closet doors can, unfortunately, become a distasteful drawback in any bedroom or living room. When a well-curated room suffers from cumbersome closet doors, there’s really only one solution; replace them! We offer exciting solutions to replacing those unsightly doors, with a few modern twists on the outdated doors of the past. Try our mirror closet doors, one of our best sliding door solutions, or our glass sliding shoji style doors to create interest and worldly narrative to your space. While some companies offer just a few options, we choose to offer an option for every room, any home size- from expansive villas to tiny homes and everything in between

Bring Your Vacation Rental Into the ‘20s With These Design dos.

Many folks are making the smart financial decision to upgrade and redesign their homes to become effective vacation rentals. Not only is this a great ROI, but it’s an intelligent way to utilize your home or a wing of your house that is not getting a lot of use. By crafting your home into a profitable rental, you set yourself up for financial freedom and can begin to enjoy the perks of monetizing your own home. Before you begin, there are a few key considerations to think about when setting out to monetize your pad and invite awaiting guests into your slice of heaven. Why wait to discover these solutions the hard way? The exciting road to generating passive income for you and your family is just ahead- with these tips you can start the transformation today!

Consistent Design

It’s exceedingly important in this industry to craft a rental that exudes a consistent design theme. Mostly speaking on the interior spaces, but taking into consideration the exterior decor wouldn’t hurt, either. You’ll want to do a fair amount of research on current style trends, design themes and interior fads that are dominating the market and leading the way. It’s important to stay up to date and adapt to an ever-evolving interior industry. This will speak volumes to the quality and value of your rental, which will set you apart from your rental competition. Below are a few of the top Interior Design trends entering into 2020.

  • Mid Century Modern
  • Natural Luxury
  • Shabby Chic
  • Industrial Modern
  • Hollywood Regency

These styles are consistent and desired by renters and vacationers across the globe. Pick one theme and stick to it. If you try to cross-pollinate too many design styles, you’ll end up with a muddied aesthetic- interior decor that appears confused and over-worked. However, by employing some exciting artistic flourishes and design picks going into the new decade will put your rental on the map and draw in visitors looking to enjoy their stay in luxury and style.

Consider adding oval furniture, two-tone kitchens, patterned wallpaper, Moroccan and middle eastern textiles and accent pieces, unique rugs, and sleek sophisticated furniture. Attention to detail is massively important. The first thing vacation renters look for when seeking to book is aesthetic and taste. They want to treat and impress their fellow guests with a smart rental that everyone can enjoy.

Make Your Rental Fool Proof

This is to say, most people have the ‘appliance competence’ of a small child. You must fool-proof your home if you want your renters to have a positive experience. If they can’t decipher how to use a feature or a handy appliance within thirty seconds, it becomes completely unusable and cast to the side. You also must take into consideration the need to child-proof the rental. The last thing you want is for a child to accidentally cut themselves on a sharp corner or table edge or break a delicate object. Causing them pain and costing you money. Things like easy to use shower nozzles, light switches in obvious and convenient locations, simple coffee makers will make a guest’s stay much more hassle-free. Consider your provided entertainment center and take the time to make sure it’s simple enough to use- the remote controls are labeled for clarity and you might even want to craft a simple cheat sheet for them to save time and confusion. Other integral features of the rental, such as doors and mirrors should be easy to use. For example, modern sliding doors installed throughout the rental will up the value and improve overall aesthetic while providing easy-to-use functions for your visitors. Sliding closet doors, sliding bathroom doors even mirrored sliding closet doors will provide simplicity, save space that typical swinging doors take up and add a unique look to your vacation home.

Eco- Forward Features

Because you are about to have an influx of people renting your home, there is going to be inevitable taxation on your resources. People who are on vacation and enjoying a home that is not their own will likely be less frugal with the resources provided. That means extra water, electricity as well as typical wear and tear costs put on you. A great way to mitigate this increase in usage is to set about updating your home with eco-conscious appliances, products, and features. Things like high-efficiency toilets, recycled paper towels and bath tissue, LED lights, solar-powered path lighting, glass doors and glass walls providing natural light, and installing dimmers on light switches could make a huge difference in your energy costs and eco-footprint. Your renters will be happy to know they’re staying in a low-impact home and you can even use these eco upgrades as a selling point- setting your rental apart from the rest!

With these simple yet effective considerations and upgrades to your home, you’ll be on your way to dominating the rental scene in just about any city. Employing a consistent design theme, fool-proofing your rental and switching to eco-forward features will have a serious impact on the quality of your rental, as well as save you resources and stress.

Live Your Best Life with Four Interior (And Life) Solutions

Children, roommates, and spouses are the light of our lives until they become the opposite- a daunting distraction hindering personal growth, tasks, and our much needed “alone time”. We tend to feel bad about needing personal space, quiet, healthy solitude. Let’s rewrite that narrative, and move forward with a more forthright declaration. This year is about setting boundaries and acknowledging it! You are your environment, and your environment is you. It is okay to yearn for ownership of your spaces. To be able to employ separation is a great gift to yourself, and The Sliding Door Company recognizes just that. We provide a multitude of options and specializations to suit your unique needs. Here are four solutions to waltzing into living your best life in style and inner harmony.

1. Identify and Craft the Perfect Environment

The New Year is about growth, about evolution, and about outlining your needs and owning them. One of those needs is taking ownership of your environment. Dwellings, interior spaces, shared rooms. The how and why you exist in them. This year, take it upon yourself to observe the spaces in your home you subconsciously exist in most- whether it be the bedroom, the kitchen, the living room, or the study. Now, after identifying which interior space feels the best to you, try to decipher why it is you find yourself gravitating towards that particular space. Is it safe, is it cozy, peaceful, productive, or is it full of life, exciting, loud and energetic? Is the lighting superior to all other rooms? Whatever it may be, you instinctively know where you are being drawn to. Now, wouldn’t it be fantastic to feel that way about every single room in your home? Well, it could. There is a smart solution to incorporating the qualities of the spaces you enjoy the most throughout the entire house without sacrificing the feeling of communal living, or the opposite- your personal space.

2. Set Boundaries

Our solution? Set boundaries and invest in your environment by physically partitioning your environment with sliding doors and entire sliding walls. One particular space optimizer we offer stylish, customizable sliding glass barn doors to create interest and option to virtually any space in your home. This modern take on a rustic staple will act as a barrier between two rooms that don’t want the commitment of separation, yet could use a healthy dose of spacial distinction from time to time. If it’s the living room you love, yet you find yourself discouraged to enjoy the comforts of that space due to the constant foot traffic, sounds, and smells of the nearby kitchen, the remedy for that is to create duality and harmony between the two. The sliding doors optimize the usability and comfort of your interior spaces while allowing for internal peace- when not everyone in your life is on the same page. Buttery smooth to slide open and close, and allowing for beautiful light to pass through, these doors are a no-brainer that will increase the functionality in your life ten-fold. This solution offers adaptability, so you don’t have to. No more arguments about your shared environment, turning the fan on or off, or battles over lighting or temperature. Breathe, relax and enjoy. This year could be as blissful as that post-yoga zen.

3. Accomplish Your Goals

Now that you have the option to enjoy your favorite space without fear of interruption or discomfort, you can undoubtedly accomplish your goals in any room of the house. Whether it’s your morning stretch routine, coffee and catching up on social media, planning your next trip, chipping away on demanding computer work, or just finishing that novel you’ve been staring at for weeks… the choice is yours. Free from interruption, and into the present moment. No need to feel guilty, that’s not what 2020 is all about. What it is about, is moving forward in your life, unobstructed from unnecessary distractions. The separation of space is so much more valuable than we tend to recognize. With sliding glass doors segregating your interiors, you can cast your disturbances to the side and delve into your current project, routine, or ritual. The Sliding Door Company offers this space improvement solution in many different variations. If the barn door aesthetic isn’t one you can see working in your home, there are a myriad of other options for obtaining the same objective. We provide entire sliding room dividers that act as a wall, yet are easily maneuverable to open up entire rooms and provide the merging or closure of two spaces. Choose from different glass opacities, frame finishes, and accessories to craft the perfect environment for a productive year.

4. Invest In Yourself

Investing in ourselves can be a difficult thing to do. When the demands of life become too cumbersome for us to handle, what is the first thing to go? Our physical health, mental wellness and consequently, our inner buddha. Our personal spaces become cluttered and unkempt. When we feel stressed, we stop looking at ourselves in the mirror. We stop addressing and acknowledging the person we have become. As figuratively as that may sound, it applies to the literal, too. Looking at ourselves in a real, unobstructed mirror can at times be a challenge- especially when we’re not ready for it. Additionally, when we have smaller bedrooms or bathrooms we can’t justify installing large full body mirrors- just to get a better glimpse of ourselves before leaving the house. This year, let’s challenge that.

Our advice? Replace the drab closet doors with Closet Mirror Sliding Doors. Made specially in our factory with quality and purpose fabricated into every panel, our doors are the ultimate fresh look you need for not only your room but for yourself. Utilizing green materials and the awareness of safety with utmost importance, our glass closet doors will provide you with a clear mind and a simple space-saving solution sure to cater to inner peace. Don’t leave for work or for that date without seeing the entire picture. What is on the inside will translate better when your outward look is considered, respected and authentically you. A full-length mirror aids well the polished look to a grounded you. Our mirrored sliding doors come in your choice of lightweight but sturdy 5mm thick mirrored safety glass, and they come in the client’s choice of frame size, frame finish and even in a smoked mirror option for a warmer appearance. The Sliding Door Company’s sliding closet doors have the 3S Smart Shut System and our patented wheel to the track locking system. The doors themselves come in all sorts of sizes and variations- from hanging to grounding on a track. Offering six different framing finishes to choose from, we imply choice as a prominent aspect of our business – it is ultimately your life, and your choice.

Considering the above solutions, the framework for a new year has already been laid out. Slide into a new phase as you’ll enter into your new space – happier, healthier and free to live your best life.
