Are you hoping to create an indoor-outdoor connection for your Arizona home? Studies show that fostering a connection between the indoors and outdoors relieves stress and tension, enhances the mood and increases concentration. These benefits are especially helpful if you work from home.
One of the best ways to create an indoor-outdoor connection is by upgrading your current door to a sliding pocket glass door. These doors feature glass panels that slide into a wall pocket for amazing views and a seamless transition from the indoors to the outdoors. Let’s learn more about these doors and if they’re the right fit for your Phoenix home!
What are Pocket Glass Doors, Exactly?
Sliding pocket glass doors slide open and closed like a sliding patio door would, except the glass panels slide into a pocket in the wall. When fully open, the panels disappear from view, giving you a seamless view of the outdoors. We highly recommend these types of doors for those who love to entertain, as well as those who want an unobstructed view of the outdoors.
Pocket glass wall doors are engineered for smooth and easy operation. There are both contemporary and traditional designs available, making it easy to match these types of doors to the architecture of your home. Typically, the frames are made from aluminum and feature weather-stripping for energy efficiency.
If you like the idea of a moving glass wall system in Arizona, but you don’t want pocket doors, consider stacking or bi-fold doors. They offer the same benefits as pocket doors but with a different operating style.
Benefits to Expect from Sliding Pocket Glass Doors
More often than not, customers are asking for large windows and doors that connect their homes to the beautiful outdoors. And why not! Phoenix has some of the most stunning views – mountain ranges, palm trees – and even the downtown skyline if your home is elevated!
Here are some benefits to choosing pocket glass doors:
- Enjoy scenic views from the comfort of your living room – especially nice on sweltering summer days!
- Create a seamless transition to a covered patio or outdoor space
- Make entertaining easier – guests can socialize while you serve drinks and food
- Wide opening that comes in handy when moving furniture and other large items
- Thermally controlled door systems available to maximize efficiency
- Keep a watchful eye on the kids while they’re swimming in the backyard pool
