More Glass Is Being Utilized in New Homes
Updates in technology for window and door glass have allowed builders to design homes a little bit differently. From floor-to-ceiling windows to retractable glass walls, more of today’s homes are being built to incorporate copious amounts of natural light in all rooms. While these type of designs have been prominent in warmer areas for indoor/outdoor living, Midwest builders in colder climates are also now including more glass features.
A retractable glass wall in the living room and a basement workout room that's delineated by sliding glass, barn-style doors is not uncommon out West but now you're seeing them everywhere because they too have undergone improvements that allow them to be used in colder climates. The see-through doors help incorporate the other areas into a main room and provide natural light to the whole space.
