If you’ve ever walked into a living room and loved its beautiful view, fireplace, or another feature right away, you noticed its focal point. The focal point of a room is whatever draws the eye and gives a room its energy while diverting focus from any less-appealing aspects. Do you feel that energy when you walk into your own living room? If not, then it likely will benefit from having a focal point. Let’s explore how contemporary interior sliding doors can positively impact your space.
How to Create a Focal Point
Windows, paintings, and accent walls can all serve as focal points. Once you identify it, your focal point will need some accents to make it stand out. For instance, windows can be accented with wooden shutters or sheers. A special painting can get all the attention when it’s hung by itself on a large wall, and an accent wall can be painted in a striking shade. The great news is that you don’t have to be limited to a single focal point; your living room can have two of them. Here’s where interior sliding doors can really shine.
What Sliding Glass Doors Can Do
There’s no doubt that sliding interior doors are an elegant and beautiful addition to your living room—or any room in your home, for that matter. However, they also bring much more to your home.
Let in Natural Light
Sliding glass doors are a great alternative to traditional doors and walls. Even if an interior glass door is opaque, it will still allow natural light through. Why is natural light so important? It has a host of health benefits, such as improving mood and eyesight, and helping you sleep, to name but a few.
Turn One Room into Two
Regardless of the size of your living room, glass interior doors can make it multi-functional. Imagine being able to have office space, a personal yoga studio, or a guest room, all with a simple slide to the side. This is the high level of functionality that glass shoji style doors can bring.
Big, bulky walls can make you feel boxed in, and traditional doors swing in and out, interrupting the sight lines of a space as they quietly consume square footage on either side. Not so with glass, which maintains clean lines whether doors are slid open or closed. They also offer the same benefits of dividing a room, but with thinner walls that let light through, which opens up the space.
