As a designer, it comes with the title- the expectation to harbor creativity, to be innovative and of course, to provide cutting edge products and design solutions for your clients. After years of designing, improving, and optimizing spaces, there can at times come the routine stagnation of creativity. It’s a demanding profession with all sorts of stressful assurances. You constantly need to employ novelty and invention to be ahead of the curve. It’s no easy feat to be as up to date as possible on all of the current trends, architectural elements that are in season, the latest in furniture and above all else, to adapt to an ever-changing market.
There are so many factors to consider when designing interior spaces. You have to tie in the decor, the furniture, the structural elements and the unique aesthetic of each home harmoniously. We at The Sliding Door Company like to provide innovative and stylish interior solutions so you can design to impress. Below are a few ideas to help ensure your next interior project a success.
A current trend utilized extensively in interior design the past few years has been a revisit in Mid Century Modern. The furniture selection, lighting fixtures and overall vibe of many an interior has pulled from this sophisticated and striking period and has done it well. While this look has garnered a lot of attention and employment, it’s time to take a leap and catapult an already well-considered aesthetic further.
What could set your interiors apart from the rest? The attention to and innovation of everyday features. A great artistic flourish can be added by updating all of the hardware, trim or even doors in the home. The Sliding Door Company provides excellent cutting edge door designs and customizable features to scale-up your interiors.
A perfect example of juxtaposing the draw of modern sophistication while tapping into rustic nostalgia is the sliding glass barn door. Not only is it suspended, creating equal interest and intrigue, but the functionality of this feature provides the client with tranquility and ease. It’s both elegant and raw, offering thought-provoking duality. The sliding glass barn door allows for individual customization with features you can choose from, such as to go frameless for that ultra-clean, modern look. These barn doors are a wonderful solution to opening or closing spaces off when needed. The Sliding Door Company takes into account the need and demand for multiple choices, such as customizing accessories and finishes to make them uniquely yours. That’s why we offer sixteen different glass opacities to choose from, as well as six finishes, and framing options.
When working with scale and limitations, designing and decorating can be tricky. Especially if you are working with a tiny home or small city loft. The lack of square footage can pose a troubling threat to the overall experience and essence of the space. One way to combat small spaces is to utilize mirrors to create depth and expansion in the home. Floor-length mirrors are optimal as they provide dimension and aid visibility in any room. Mirrors are also great for optimizing natural light in space – making this a cost-effective solution. Greatly broadening the experience, mirrors give the illusion that space is actually much larger than it is. A good way to do this is to install mirrored sliding closet doors. This simple solution serves a dual purpose by adding scale and style all at once. The Sliding Door Company proudly offers many designs to choose from, ranging from mirrored sliding bathroom doors to entire glass wall partitions. Scale-up with mirrors and provide the duality and function of modern sliding doors.
Lastly, allowing the client to uniquely customize their space at the drop of a hat is an innovative and much-appreciated design feature. You as the designer get to play with the curatorial aspects of each project. When rooms are too large or overly airy, they can tend to feel cold, unwelcoming and therefore, unused. There are a few smart ways to redesign and break up interior spaces without bringing an entire construction crew into play. This saves you time, cost and energy. The way to craft new interior spaces or entire rooms even is to add interior partitions to an existing open floor plan. By utilizing ever-helpful sliding wall doors, wall partitions, and sliding panel doors, you effortlessly craft entirely novel rooms and break up excessively large or open rooms. The great thing about these room dividers with doors is you can easily lock and unlock, open or close spaces in mere seconds. Allowing the client to have control over their environment is a sure way to gain recognition and approval. Taking the client’s needs into consideration is huge, especially when there are a plethora of talented designers out there- it’s important to leave a thoughtful and artistic mark on your projects.
