Frosted Glass Door
May 31, 2019
Options for frosted glass doors have increased dramatically in the last few years. While it may seem like a simple thing to pick a frosted glass door for your patio, when many people are faced with all the available options they become confused. These doors are not cheap so it is important to make sure that you make the right choice. What should you take into account when you are choosing a patio frosted glass door? Think about the following:
What are your specific needs?
There are many reasons why you would want a frosted glass patio door. For most people it is so that they can improve the aesthetics of the home, make better use of the space that opens up to the patio and also improve energy efficiency in the home. If you have any other needs that are not listed here this is the time to think about them. You should also think about the size of the door that you want to install, whether you want it to open into the room or whether you would prefer a sliding door, what kind of finish and frame you would like for your door and of course how much you are willing to spend from start to finish.
Style of patio door
We have already mentioned style of patio doors but it may be worthwhile to expound. There are different styles of patio doors and what you choose will be determined not only by your individual preference but also the amount of space that you are working with. Frosted glass doors can come in sliding style, hinged, bi-parting folding and French. As you look at different styles make sure that you take into account the amount of space you have not just on your patio but in the room that opens up to it. If you choose a hinged door, for example, make sure that there is enough space in the room for the door to open without coming into contact with furniture or crowding the room.
Frame of frosted glass door
Frames are made out of different materials – synthetic, wood, steel, aluminium and even vinyl. The frame you choose will depend on how secure you would like your door to be and also how you want to spend. If you choose solid wood, for example, your door will be highly secure and durable but you will have to part with more money that if you choose a door frame made out of aluminium.
