Portal doors have become very popular in the last decade for a variety of reasons. Another trend that’s picking up around here is the glazed extension, which is usually built to serve as extra space of the main house to allow you and your family be closer to the outside even in the colder months. In that line of thinking, portal doors are a great solution for your new glazed extension. But what makes a portal door so attractive? Let’s have a look at their advantages.
1 Contemporary style design
If you love the look and feel of a modern home, portal doors offer all the features of this style of design. Thin frames, elegant and minimal, this type of door is just the element that a modern space would require.
2 Extra light
Undoubtedly, the portal doors will allow a huge amount of light to enter the room – this is the purpose of the glazed extension as well; to have enough light, especially during the cold months. Imagine removing a wall and replacing it with glass – this is exactly what you get when installing portal doors. That particular type of door also makes the transition between indoor and outdoor space very smooth – you open the doors and immediately get the feeling that you are in the yard, not in your house.
3 Illusion of space
In addition to conveying a better feeling in the room, natural light creates the illusion that the interior is larger than it actually is. If you want to achieve this effect and make it as if your glazed extension and your house really extends to the end of the yard, choose portal doors. All this light and open design will help your home feel much bigger and more spacious than it really is.
The choice of portal doors for the house extension is also suitable for another reason – it allows great convenience for you and your family.
You can choose whether to open inwards or outwards, depending on the space on both sides and what works best with the layout of your home. You can easily choose different sizes as well and combine them with the interior details.
A great convenience is the ability to open only one of the door’s wings when you want to do something quickly in the yard without opening it completely. This is something very useful, especially in the winter.
5 The view
Undoubtedly, one of the main reasons why we would like to use portal doors in the the glazed house extension is the opportunity to create a great view of your entire yard.
Imagine having a view of the mountains / forest or a sea panorama. Who wouldn’t want to be able to enjoy their comfortable armchair with a cup of coffee? Portal doors allow you just that.
6 Life outside!
More and more people are starting to look for the connection of the interior with the external space and with the life in the open. We like to eat outdoors – who doesn’t love a great barbecue; to have fun, to spend more time outside in general.
And in this line of thinking, opening the portal doors gives you easy access to your outdoor living space. Through them we create a seamless expansion of our inner zone, which continues even outside. This is a great way to have fun and a great way to feel more connected to nature.
