How to Upgrade your Interiors without Breaking the Bank

The change of season always offers a wonderful opportunity to reassess your life on a grand scale, from relationships to the new school year, your current job to your wardrobe. And perhaps the most important of areas to consider these days, are your interiors. It’s healthy and informative to have this reassessment experience a few times each year in order to grow, evolve, and adapt to the changing times and changing seasons. Life is all about flexibility and personal growth, and with the changing of each season, crucial life transitions and adaptations take form whether we realize it or not. This fall how can you ask yourself those questions about your life, and what actions can you take to meet your ever-changing needs and desires?
Physical and Mental Well Being
Without question, one of the most important personal areas to address is your current mental and physical health. For without these two entities in alignment and in good health, everything else in our lives can easily crumble.
Ask yourself, are you getting enough outside time? Is exercise a part of your weekly and daily routine? Are you journaling or otherwise talking to important people in your life about how you feel? Is yoga, martial arts, or dance a practice that you utilize to achieve inner peace? There are so many tools and methods available in our modern-day to get ourselves back on track and closer to finding inner solitude. Especially so during these trying times during a worldwide pandemic, it is so important to make sure that you are receiving the nourishment and help that you need to keep going.
One way to introduce more healthy physical exercise/movement into your daily routine could be to create a home gym. During COVID when most gyms are closed or otherwise have limited capacity, you can take it upon yourself to bring fitness to you! No gym commute, no sweaty ride home, no shared showers. A home gym allows for increased focus, comfort, and cleanliness. If you don’t have a spare bedroom, do not worry. You can easily construct a small home gym using easy-to-install sliding glass wall partitions or glass room dividers to create that physical space and sanctuary you want for your workout room. This could also double as a yoga studio or a meditation room within your home in which you can escape to without the disruption of home life. By installing floor-to-ceiling glass wall partitions, you’ll have the flexibility to open and close off entire rooms within seconds! These special solutions are a breeze to install and take down, offering you the flexibility necessary during these uncertain times. You can swiftly save the potential cost and disruption of real construction while achieving the same thing with sliding room dividers.
Question Your Surroundings
The next area of your life worth considering is your surrounding indoor environment. Is your home a place that you love coming back to at the end of a long day? Do you find sanctuary and solace when entering your home? Or does your home life make you feel sad or tired? Is your space fresh, modern, and contemporary, or is it sorely outdated? Is there enough light throughout your home? Depending on how you answered these questions, you may be in need of some interior decorating/remodeling this fall. These preliminary questions are all great indicators of direction and which areas to tackle first when considering your interiors. After all, we all want to exist in beautiful, comfortable spaces that fill us up rather than detracts from our well-being.
If you start an interior remodeling project this season, however large or small, here are some classic problem areas:

  • Not enough natural light
  • Crowded spaces
  • General clutter
  • Disorganization
  • Lack of interior design cohesion
  • Not enough natural elements/greenery
  • Impersonal art curation

Now ask yourself how you could remedy these larger issues. Perhaps installing translucent glass wall partitions, or sliding glass barn doors within your communal rooms would help to bring in more natural light, as well as help to open the space up for entertaining or for family nights in. As we evolve to maintain increased fluidity in our lifestyles and schedules, our interiors should mimic this flexibility. Wall partitions that move can help with this.
Additionally, consider integrating more florals and house plants indoors to freshen up the air, and create a beautiful sanctuary that pays homage to the outdoors (even in the most urban environment). Plants have a profound effect on our mental and physical wellbeing and are proven to increase mental focus and serotonin in the body. A simple, affordable solution is available at any home and garden store!

Timeless Inspiration to Elevate Your Fall Interiors

Ahhh Fall. Leaves dropping, cooler days, cozy sweaters, and pumpkin spiced lattes. We love Fall. There’s something about the start of September that gives us that warm feeling in our stomach and makes us giddy for the change of season. If you’re like most of us, you’ll be updating your interiors to reflect your internal mood. Cozying up your space to reflect the outdoors is a natural human inclination that we all feed into. Adding little decorations, changing our relative scenery, even swapping candles out to match the season feels like second nature. And while these little details itch that seasonal scratch, sometimes they don’t produce the full-bodied emotion we’re chasing. So, if you’re seeking out some awe-inspiring design inspiration this season, we’ve got you covered!
Mix It Up!
We all know and love those natural fall colors; browns, reds, creams, burn orange. We’re used to implementing these rich accent colors throughout the home during the autumn months, but what if we switched it up this year? Design experts are predicting an elevated fall color pallet consisting of royal blues, deep indigos, and a Moroccan take on fall classics like desert sand and cayenne red. By mixing it up, we can freshen up the classics we all love so much. Adding an earthy rawness like textured walls and uneven paint marks will contemporize your space while fulfilling your fall needs. Still bring in those warm fall tones, but consider pairing them with rich, evocative color pops that will excite and renew your interiors like never before.

Bring The Outside In
Pay homage to the natural surrounding motifs of fall. With so many beautiful organic colors and elements coming out of the autumnal months, there’s no shortage of inspiration. Play around with dried leaves and flowers, pull inspiration from fascinating sticks and stones. Fallen branches and twigs can be put into ceramic or glass vases to make a naturally bold statement piece. Have fun gathering an assortment of leaves, fallen pinecones, and acorns to dress up your table with the essence of autumn (if location allows). Hang dried flowers and leaves from the windowsill to create interesting shadow play when natural light shines through during the day.
An Ode to Light
One of the best parts of fall is the beautiful warm light that streams in and creates a cozy interior environment. Spread more natural light by integrating glass doors and glass wall partitions throughout otherwise dark areas of the house. Replace light-blocking bathroom doors with opaque sliding glass bathroom doors that offer privacy with enhanced light. After all, we’re not ready for the darkness of winter just yet!
Minimalism
We all know that the winter months are anything short of minimalistic. With the excess of Christmas, Hanukkah, and other holidays, the winter months can be a time of great abundance and indulgence. Whether through food, material goods, new toys, or gifts, the winter months seem to elicit a natural “stockpile” mentality in all of us. To prepare for the excess, this fall set aside a few days to engage in a full-blown overhaul of things you can clear and discard from your life, and your interiors. Channel your inner minimalist and tackle a big closet cleanout, a kitchen pantry throw-away, and a bedroom deep-clean. Make piles for donation-centers and bring your unloved books and toys to your local grade schools for the kids to enjoy. Downsizing will bring a welcomed sense of clarity and calm into your home and prepare you for the onslaught on new items and holiday chaos you’ll be exposed to this winter.

Personalize Your Curation
One of the hottest design trends right now is the return to highly personal curation. Being so accustomed to the impersonal design approach of the modern-day, people are often intimidated to bring out the items and keepsakes that hold deep emotional value. Repurpose and display family heirlooms, vintage items passed down through the generations, reupholster old furniture, and reintroduce little knick-knacks you long stowed away that hold significant value and memories to you. Unique, one-of-a-kind pieces have added a lost quality to modern interior design which is normally so rooted in boring perfection. This new style values the imperfect, the unique, and allows for fun personalization to occur!
Using these design tips and trends for fall, you’ll have no shortage of inspiration heading into these cooler months. For even more inspiration and ideas on spatial solutions, don’t hesitate to check out the best wall partitions, sliding glass barn doors, sliding closet doors, and sliding room dividers offered at The Sliding Door Company.

Finding Resolution in Your Home Improvements This 2020

With the turn of a new year- and in this case, a new decade, it’s a wonderful time to set some New Year’s Resolutions. Crafting a vision board of the things that you know would help add to and enrich your life is a great place to start. Even just taking a few minutes out of your busy schedule to jot down some reminders to yourself. Go outside more, be more active in your week, more mindfulness with your spending, less time on social media, reconnecting with old friends- these are just a few simple yet meaningful and powerful changes for living a better life entering this new year.

A large part of any New Year’s resolution starts with your environment and allowing yourself the necessary time and space to accomplish your new goals, hobbies, and habits. We recommend first turning to your home to see if there is any current stagnation within your environment discouraging creativity, inspiration and just all-around positive energy. Below are a few simple tricks and tips for updating your space- doing out with the old- bringing in the new.

Re-arrange Your Space!

The classic draw and inspiration towards reorganizing and re-arranging your physical environment is a common practice, experienced by many surrounding large benchmarks throughout the year. We feel inclined to mix things up, reevaluate and update our spaces because we exist in them every day and they hold so much meaning and value to us. With the start of a New Year, there is a lot of mental discarding and relinquishing of things that don’t necessarily serve us anymore. In addition to the mental, there is also a lot of physical changes we experience and crave to discard as well.

While setting out to rearrange your house or simply a room in your house, think about what you can actually get rid of. Whether it’s lackluster furniture, uncomfortable lighting, art on the walls, decorative pieces, or even just realizing how cluttered it has become. There are usually quite a few items we end up holding on to and surrounding ourselves with that we are long overdue to ditch. When cleaning out your spaces, remember to make different piles to categorize the items you plan to get rid of. Make a trash pile, a recycling pile, a Goodwill pile, and a ‘give to friends’ pile. “One man’s trash is another man’s treasure” as they say- and it’s true. You never know if what you’re tossing out might be useful or appreciated by someone else. Now that you’ve done a great deal in cleaning out and decluttering the space, you can begin the fun part- the Feng Shui.

This Chinese artful tradition was developed over 3000 years ago and is used by many a renter, homeowner, designer and interior professional today. It is a system that attempts to harmonize the individual to their surrounding environment. Feng Shui employs the belief that our home is essentially a mirror to our energies and what exists inside of us. Below are the top Fen Shui tips to crafting a harmonious environment for you and your loved ones:

  • Clear Your Clutter (We already did that)
  • Get Good Quality Air And Light
  • Learn The Basics Of 5 Feng Shui Elements
  • Always Be Mindful Of The Quality Of Energy In Your Home
  • Seek Balance
  • Bring The Outdoors In
  • Use Mirrors Wisely
  • Open the Front Door to Positive Energy
  • Use Feng Shui Wealth Colors
  • Water Flow

These tips may be a bit vague, so we’ll provide you with a bit more clarity for some of these topics. For example, The 5 Feng Shui Elements are Wood, Fire, Earth, Metal, and Water. Choosing from a variety of materials and elements and bringing them into your home will add much balance and harmony to your environment. There are luckily many a chart online that detail the five elements and the corresponding directional degrees in which to integrate them into your space. A quick Google search will provide you will all there is to know about said elements and their place in your home.

Another area that we might lend some advice on, is the tip of Getting Good Quality Air and Light. A very important aspect of creating an ideal living atmosphere has a great deal to do with your available light and air quality. You know that uncomfortable experience when you enter into a home or building and it’s all stuffy and dark- you feel a bit trapped and boxed in. A great way to ensure your space is getting enough light is to install sliding glass room dividers and glass wall partitions throughout your home so that beautiful natural light is able to move through space and bring this light into all deserving rooms of the home. The Sliding Door Company offers a myriad of available Glass Doors, wall partitions, and even sliding glass barn doors for a more rustic approach to integrate that crucial natural light throughout a home.

Create Your Own Space

Whether you live with roommates, your parents, a partner, or with your own family, there is oftentimes no available alone time or space to do the activities you want to. Crafting a sanctuary in your home is a vital aspect of making a positive living environment that caters and provides for you. If wondering how to make a separate room or space amid a home without any extra bedrooms, we suggest considering wall partitions and glass room dividers. A great way to create novel spaces-home offices, workout rooms, or arts and crafts studios- is to install glass room dividers. This successfully utilizes your useable space and optimizes your floor plan. With six different glass opacities offered, you can craft privacy by choosing a high opacity or frosted glass finish. Without your own private zone, it can be super difficult to be inspired, creative and productive living amongst the people in your life.

Hopefully, with these helpful tips and info on rearranging and updating your home environment, you can realize your goals and attain true balance and harmony in your life. Integrating ‘home improvement’ in your New Years’ resolution is a great way to start the new decade.

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.

Enter into 2020 Living 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 2020, 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 2020 as you’ll enter into your new space – happier, healthier and free to live your best life.

How Glass Has Changed and Why Interior Glass Doors are so strong!

You probably have not given much thought to the glass object in most people’s pockets these days (yes the cell phone) or the millions of other products made from glass.


joseph-paxton-crystal-palace
When Joseph Paxton’s Crystal Palace was built in London in 1850 for the first World’s Fair, it was the most massive and striking building constructed from nearly 293,660 panes of glass. The amount of glass used was equivalent to 1/3 of what Britain manufactured in a whole year!
glass-building-manufacturing
Thanks to tax cuts which made glass cheaper, the new “sheet of glass” was developed which also made manufacturing a lot quicker and more efficient. Today’s interior glass door solutions are strong, recyclable and keep their shape!


As more people began to have access to glass, somehow natural light became far more available too!

The previous buildings made of brick were very dark inside with no way to see outdoors. People started to incorporate glass into their buildings in the form of glass windows which allowed ample natural light to flow through, uplifting morale and giving way to the indoor plant!

Believe it or not, seeds were hauled from China, India and North America to Britain inside a functional glass cover!

Interior glass walls, partitions and pass through windows are common place in both work spaces and at home!

Fixed glass windows allow for natural light to flow into an office. The opaque laminated glass gives visual privacy.


From Glass Office Enclosures in car dealerships to hospitals needing to re-purpose a work area in seconds, interior glass room dividers, swing doors & barn doors offer a functional solution!


From Commercial Work Spaces to Banks, Libraries and Court Houses, interior glass doors solutions offer functionality, flexibility and sustainability very time.

cubicle-glass-dividers-in-office
It is not just about seeing natural light or that glass offers transparency, it also became clear that glass is very special due to its atomic structure in its solid form. It resists repeated structure of crystalline materials and instead, as liquid glass turns solid, the atoms are frozen into a random arrangement. This is one of the reasons glass is so strong!
wide-angle-shot-of-office-hallway-with-sliding-glass-doors
When glass is free from impurities and scratches, it can be stronger than many metals. Tempered glass is safe and will never break into large shards. Laminated glass is made with a film in the middle of two pieces of glass which is also very safe. From frosted to milky glass, clear and textured, you can select the glass type that suits your project the best!


Glass is basically a workhorse giving us a way to create an extra room without construction!

Open air decorative room dividers also save energy! You can share lighting, heating and air conditioning while providing visual privacy to your bedroom area. We have had many of our room dividers installed since our first year in business in 2005 with no issues at all. They still look brand new!

Today’s interior glass door solutions are strong, easy to install, allow for natural light to flow through and are made with safety & style to optimize functionality in any room.
