Glass has quickly become a modern interior design trend in recent years. While it is still seen as a luxury choice, it has become more accessible to homes and families up and down the country. Some of the most spectacular uses for glass in home architecture include internal frameless glass doors. But why do so many people elect to install such doors as part of their property design? Here are some great reasons why you should consider frameless glass door solutions for your own property.
While many may assume glass to be fragile and to shatter at a second’s notice, toughened glass is far from flimsy. Glass used to build frameless doors is in fact designed to be safer than alternative door installations. Frameless doors can have invisible tracks, which can mean there’s no obstruction, and you are less likely to experience intrusion.
Glass is hugely popular for its flexibility and versatility when it comes to interior design. Frameless doors can be built and installed in a variety of colours and styles, as well as different applied finishes, and even incorporating other materials into the lamination.
Ask anyone who has glass doors installed in their home, and they will happily tell you that they really maximise the amount of natural light that can travel from room to room. For any home in need of a little more natural illumination, frameless glass doors are a must.
Frameless glass is famously easy to clean and maintain. With no clumsy mechanisms or added parts, you simply have to keep your panels looking sparkling and fresh from time to time. It is a case of a few gentle sprays and wipes as opposed to stubborn cleaning and scrubbing.
Best of all, frameless glass doors give you an extensive look beyond your property into your garden and beyond. Completely transparent internal doors will allow you to marvel at your garden and its features without the obstruction of frames and opaque materials. For those homeowners who love to look out every now and again, glass doors are a brilliant buy.

Glass has gradually become the go-to material and resource for fabricators and installers alike, as well as one which has inspired homeowners all over the world. Glass is an absolute marvel to work with and to introduce as part of any contemporary home design. Its main appeal lies in the very fact that it is effortlessly luxurious, and that it is incredibly flexible and versatile. Versatility should be at the forefront of any modern home design, and therefore, we at Elysion Ltd are always keen to show our clients the best ways in which you can really make use of the resource. Glass doors, for one, are particularly useful as part of modern home installations for a variety of reasons.
While many homes across the UK still make use of traditional wood and panel door installations, many more are taking advantage of the benefits of introducing glass into their properties – beyond traditional window systems. Frameless glass doors are not only simple to use and to maintain, but are also wonderful to introduce as part of any contemporary home space. Those looking for luxury need consider no other material nor resource – particularly as glass doors can be designed and installed for a variety of reasons and purposes. While glass doors can often be seen as part of kitchen or bathroom designs, it is becoming more and more commonplace to see sliding units and traditional glass doors introduced as part of dining room and lounge spaces.
If privacy is a major concern, glass doors can also be frosted to ensure that things are kept out of sight. One of the main benefits to glass door installations, and glass in general within contemporary design, is that natural light is encouraged to travel further than ever before. Crisp, clear, transparent glass solutions allow sunlight to flow through your home where you need it the most – meaning that you no longer have to hide your rooms behind stuffy wooden doors or solid walls. Glass doors work perfectly in tandem with walls and units making use of the same material – and you may choose to either completely convert a room or space into glass, or to merely use it in touches here and there. As bespoke designers, fabricators and installers, we understand that no two home designs are ever going to be quite the same.
Toughened glass is extremely resilient and makes for the perfect door installation. Doors, of course, are regularly used and are therefore expected to see considerable traffic on a daily basis. Glass doors therefore need to be designed not only with aesthetics and style in mind, but also with durability and ease of use. Rest assured, we will always work closely with you to achieve exactly what you want and need.

If you’re thinking about starting a new project, or renovating an old design, it may be worth considering a glass solution. Glass as a construction material is becoming increasingly popular amongst architects, developers, home owners and designers; widely known for it’s modern, sleek looks, a glass design would fit perfectly into any project of all types and sizes. The use of a contemporary glass design will open up interiors and offer a clean, stylish transparency to any building, whilst creating a feel of enhanced spaciousness. If you’re still wondering how you could incorporate these designs into your home, maybe we can give you some ideas.
A well designed glass installation can create anything from a striking division between floors to a bespoke, translucent staircase. When looking for a glass design with wow factor, you need not look any further. The innovative glass flooring design is sure to provide a focal point for guests as well as adding a unique twist to the standard flooring. The transparency of the material gives not only a luxurious touch to your modern home but also allows for light to flow freely, brightening up the whole space.
For a truly stunning alternative to the traditional balustrade, its glass counterpart will add elegance to any room or space. Displaying both modern and contemporary features, the glass balustrade will fit perfectly into any modern home. The use of glass not only gives a clean and crisp look but also unobtrusively allows for light to fill the space, provide improved visibility and give the feeling of a much more open space.
As an alternative, the glass balustrade can also be used outdoors; the glass design makes both an excellent windbreak on roof tops or balconies but also looks especially stunning when used around a pool or decked area.
Modern homes and commercial projects are seeing an increased use in glass solutions; offering a modern and sophisticated impression whilst also adding a feeling of spaciousness, with natural light being allowed to fill the room.
Glass doors are a fantastic way to transform the look of an area, adding a contemporary twist with value. Frameless glass partitions are often used in conjunction with such designs, usually incorporated in office spaces though these designs can also work equally well for domestic use.

As time progresses, interior design has evolved far beyond the reaches of the standards of old – while brick, mortar and wood are still reliable standards as far as foundations go, many homeowners are now opting for more contemporary choices with which to decorate their inner homes. It’s very popular to opt for clean, bright and perhaps almost clinical looks – as contemporary home design moves towards minimalism and spatial awareness over ornate flourishes. Certainly, the adage of ‘more is better’ appears to be fading fast – while it varies from person to person just how much truly fills a home, the appeal of a glass door or screen, balustrade or staircase is quickly gaining momentum – and it’s not hard to understand why.
Glass is an extremely versatile material to work with in terms of interior home design, and as it can be reinforced and bolstered to be tougher than ever, it’s remained a popular choice for occasional touches within the home – if not completely replacing wood in some fittings such as staircases! The concept of the glass door is nothing new – after all, the vast majority of suburban homes will benefit from partially-glass doors in kitchens and porches alike – but the idea of an entirely glass door or screen installation is becoming ever more popular with homeowners looking to capitalise on the most contemporary look for their properties.
A glass door effectively creates an additional sense of space in the way that a window does – consider a room without windows – it’s a room that suddenly feels closed off and smaller than it needs to be. Glass doors effectively offer transparency and can help develop an open, liberated atmosphere within any home with a minimum of effort. Popular in contemporary office buildings, the glass door is just one commercial design choice that has made the leap from work to home in the past few years.
This is also down to the fact that a glass door doesn’t demolish the sense of ‘home’ in the slightest – while some homeowners may be cautious about making choices that could be ‘too contemporary’, glass screens and doors maintain a homely feel without going completely into the realms of the traditional – they walk a perfectly fine line between modern and homely without straying too far into either territory. Certainly, if maximising space and transparency within your home is at the top of your agenda, you can hardly go wrong by creating a unique atmosphere with a glass door or two in your property.
