Why Your Home Needs a Sliding Glass Door


First and foremost, sliding glass doors are beautiful. They’re sleek, elegant, and work well with almost every design style. Plus, they provide you with all of the benefits of a large window while providing much more functionality.

Don’t get us wrong — large windows are gorgeous and can certainly breathe new life into a room. However, if you need a new door and have considered a new window, why not tackle both projects at the same time with a sliding glass door installation?

Natural Light

Nobody likes paying more than they need to in order to keep their home illuminated. Sliding glass doors provide you with an abundance of natural light throughout the day, allowing you to turn the lights off in at least one adjacent room. Depending on the location, your sliding glass door may provide enough light to keep several rooms well-lit during the day. In the long run, this can save a significant amount of energy and subsequently lower your utility bills.

Yes, a sliding glass door installation is an investment, but it’s one that comes with monetary and non-monetary benefits. If you’re anything like past clients, you’ll wonder why you didn’t spring for an installation sooner.

Design Freedom

Hinged doors often close the door to certain design ideas. This isn’t a massive issue in most cases, but it can confine you to certain design styles that work with the arc of the door. At IBEX Window & Door, we believe that you should have the freedom to arrange your home however you see fit. Sliding glass doors remove any design barriers created by the arc of a door, allowing you to enjoy every square inch of the room.

Fresh Air

We’ve discussed that sliding glass doors are similar to large windows, and they’re particularly similar to windows in the way that they can be opened to fill your home with fresh outdoor air. Just as you can save money on your utility bills by relying on the natural light provided by your sliding door, you can also use them to cut down on your air conditioning usage.
