When choosing your front door designs the customer must decide if they want light let in or not. Entry doors can have glass paneling or not, and the glass paneling can either be clear or tinted to obstruct light. When choosing this option you should consider whether it is safe. The glass panels whether clear or opaque can be included in one small section or on the entire door. These panels are also found in the sidelights that frame the doors.
The Japanese may actually be the first people to use what we refer to today as sliding closet doors. These doors essentially follow the commonly accepted definition of a door that moves sideways or in an up and down motion. They still serve the same purpose as they did then, to manage space, provide ease of use and highlight or disguise internal or external features of a structure.
Glass is one of the most popular materials used today because of its availability, versatility, ease of use and cost. Simply panes of glass are often used as the sole material in some designs because it can be used safely and provides many of the aesthetic features that lend well to design.
