Here at Savoy Timber, we pride ourselves on our huge range of internal doors, including solid wood, composite doors and pre-finished internal doors. Many different types of these doors incorporate glass into their construction, with some pretty fantastic results. This week on the blog, we’re going into a bit of detail on the benefits of glazed and glass-panelled doors, and exactly what they can offer you.

Here are the main advantages that glazed doors can offer your home:

  1. Increased natural light
  2. Great aesthetic value
  3. Even privacy and practical benefits
  4. A bit of convenience once in a while!

Right then – ready to find out how?

Let There Be Light

This is one of the most obvious benefits of glass doors, but it definitely bears saying. Whether it’s a glass panelled internal door or a full-length glazed door, glass doors allow natural light to flood into your home – and let’s be honest, it’s just so much nicer than artificial light. And though you might not be able to put your finger on exactly why, there’s actually a bit of science behind this. Humans are hardwired to respond positively to natural light – it triggers signals in our brains that affect our mood and energy levels, ultimately making us healthier and happier. And now that we’re moving quickly through autumn and into winter, that natural light is becoming all the more treasured!

Added Aesthetic Value

As well as making the rest of your home look attractive, glass internal doors look pretty fantastic in themselves, too. They have a sleek, impressive look that helps them blend particularly well into more modern and contemporary styled homes. On top of this, lots of our internal glazed doors are decorated with interesting patterns to give them an even greater visual appeal, helping you to put that extra stamp of personality onto your home.

Privacy And Practical Benefits

When it comes to privacy, glass panelled and glazed internal doors might not be your first thought. But here at Savoy Timber, we stock a number of doors with frosted glass panels, giving you your peace without sacrificing any of the natural light or aesthetic value that glazed doors can provide.

This goes the other way, too. For family homes, full-length glazed doors allow parents to keep a careful eye on children or pets, who can be a bit too fond of playing with things they’re not supposed to. If you’re working in the study but your little one is supposed to be quietly watching TV, the clear view through a glazed door can give you the crucial few seconds you might need to prevent something valuable from being dropped from a height.

Material Advantages

In addition to its stunning aesthetic value and handy practical advantages, glass has quite a few useful benefits as a material. Not only is it durable, but it’s very low maintenance, and requires only bit of TLC every now and again to stay looking spick and span. It doesn’t rust or corrode, and it’s more or less invulnerable to insects. All in all then, not too shabby!

Whether you’re a fan of full-length glazed internal doors, or you’re more of the glass panelled persuasion, we’ve got plenty of choices for you here at Savoy Timber. For our full-length options you need to look no further than some of our amazing Pattern 10 internal doors, or you can browse our range of Victorian doors for the glass panelled varieties.

Remember, you can always pop into one of our three stores in Blackpool, Preston or Wigan to see your purchases in person, where our friendly members of staff will be only too happy to help out.
