Glass doors: the gateway to exquisite views

Most homeowners will tell you that a room with a view is ultimately the dream. Whether it’s a view of the famous South African sunset, bustling city skyline or tranquil ocean view, houses with unabated views continue to trump the market.

The extravagant use of glass has, therefore, become an essential architectural tool used to showcase these landscapes. Now while many designs use large glass windows, for access to those picturesque views, glass doors are taking this a step further.

Glass entryways

When you think of doors the first thing that comes to mind is the separation of one space from another. However, with glass doors, this separation comes with a visual link that creates a harmonious flow between spaces. Interior designers, architects and door specialists alike understand the need for modern areas to take on a trendy, healthy and aerated appeal and how glass doors help achieve this.

Benefits of glass doors

Brilliantly transparent

One of the most attractive elements of a glass door is its aesthetic allure. Its ability to seamlessly blend into the interior design style of any space increases its favour. This intricate design also contributes to current architectural trends as it adds silent communication between various spaces. Particularly that of your outdoor environment. The transparent nature of this material means that it quickly becomes an ever-changing canvas for both your exteriors and interiors.

Unpacking the top design styles for 2020

Are you considering changing the style of your home in the new year but in need of a little inspiration? Search no more because we are covering our top 6 most favoured styles. In reality, though, these decorative styles are not rigid. There is no pressure to identify with just one. Mix and match with as many styles as you’d like and make it your own.

Mid-century modern

This interior design style pays homage to the mid-1900s through its use of refined lines, natural shapes and minimalist silhouettes. Spaces that follow mid-century modern aesthetics make use of simple colours, crisp lines and clean-cut pieces. Materials that work best in this space include, steel, metal and glass.

The use of glass in mid-century styled homes will not only define this space but complement its simplistic nature. This will also add a sense of elegance and synergy with the monochrome palettes. Glass will also add unobtrusive elements to a space that feed into a nonchalant and decluttered character. With intentional asymmetry, minimal chaos and neutral accessories, glass will help emphasise the stylish dialogue throughout.


Traditional interior design offers your space a more classic detailing. Rooted in European influence, this look is characterised by extroverted accessorising and opulent furnishings. This includes well-constructed wingback chairs and tufted Chesterfield couches. Features of this design style, therefore, rely on darker elements that are punctuated with rich colours, patterns and curved lines. Traditional stylings come with a sense of depth and layering.

All There is to Know About Home Renovations

A home renovation is stressful and frustrating but with the right advice, contractor and plan – it doesn’t have to be. We’re going to identify all the steps to follow and give you the full run-down on everything you need to know about home renovations.

What is a renovation?

The term renovation is often confused with remodelling and restoring. For a successful renovation, clear communication between owner, contractor, and architect is critical. Understanding the correct terminology is the best place to start;


Remodelling is often used to describe any kind of change to an existing house. Technically, it’s more accurate to say that remodel means to change the structure or form of a whole house or a portion of a house. For example, when you combine a kitchen and dining room into one large eat-in kitchen you’re remodelling the kitchen and dining room.


Renovating is a more specific term that means to literally make something new again. An out-of-date kitchen, updated with new finishes and fixtures, has been renovated.


Restoring a house is the opposite of a renovation. Instead of updating your home, you revert the house back to its original state.

This may seem obvious but these terms often get confused and misused so it’s important to completely understand what you need and want before you start.

7 Steps to follow

Renovations are the best way to increase your home’s resale value and keep your home up-to-date with modern designs. Keep the entire process as simple as possible by following these steps;
