The last year has seen a surge for glazed internal doors, with Berkshire, Hampshire and Surrey homeowners looking at ways to create broken plan living spaces and bring more natural light in the house.

Glass has been the inspirational material for architects and property developers in the exterior design of both residential and commercial buildings for many years.

Glass represents an invisible border between two environments; not does only it brings light and airiness to both spaces; the light reflection also contributes to the perception of spaciousness.

In the ever-changing world of interior décor, one trend that has continued to grow during the months of the COVID-19 pandemic is internal glazing in the form of stylish glazed internal doors to separate rooms or to partition a space within a room.

For homeowners that favour minimalist interior design and sleek, clean lines, glazed internal doors offer the ideal option with enhanced aesthetics. The best characteristics that identify glass is transparency.

Replace an internal wall with fully glazed doors or partition and enjoy a sense of freshness and space. Natural light is a must-have feature that many homeowners desire for the benefits it brings, from the feeling of wellbeing to saving money on energy bills.

Whether you choose fully or partially glazed internal doors, they can be so much more than just an entry door – they can create luxurious living spaces that add the wow factor to properties.
