Most people spend their time at home either indoors or outdoors. It is more unusual to drift between the two areas. However, only by doing so are you able to enjoy the sunlight and fresh air of the outdoors as well as the comforts of indoors.

This Marina-based home goes against the norm and fully embraces the indoor/outdoor lifestyle, all thanks to frameless glass doors.

1. Indoor/Outdoor Living Room

The entire wall of one side of the living room has been transformed into frameless glass. By utilizing a sliding system, the homeowners have created a flexible space. When they open the sliding glass, they have an even larger living area, which is ideal for entertaining. When they close the panels, they maintain an intimate feeling in the living room while continuing to take advantage of the natural light.

2. Fantastic Views

Here, we see the second room using glass walls. The swinging doors fit perfectly with the layout of the home, as they look out over stunning views of the marina. Better yet, the homeowners can enjoy the scene without needing to worry about noise: the glass door system features tempered glass, which forms a soundproof barrier when the sliding doors are shut.

 

The same feature of tempered glass improves security in the home, as the glass is five times stronger than average. Combined with the fact that the doors only lock from the inside and that it is impossible to push panels from their tracks, the residents can feel completely safe in their home.

3. Separate, But Connected

Seen from the inside, it is more obvious how the balcony area is separate from the bedroom but maintains a sense of connection. For one thing, the flooring is different in each room. Plus, the tracks of the frameless sliding system highlight the distinction. Still, like the living room, the entire wall is taken up by frameless glass doors to maximize the impact.

4. Unimposing Sliding Doors

This closeup of the glass doors shows just how convenient the system is for connecting the living room with the outdoor room. The panels stack out of the way to one side. Then, you have the recessed bottom track. This creates flush flooring with nothing to step over and no barrier between the indoors and outdoors. The homeowners chose to make the tracks white, which pairs perfectly with other aspects of their decor.

5. Taking Full Advantage of the Balcony

From this angle, you can see how the living room makes full use of the balcony. The sliding glass doors are framed by flowing white drapes, which draw more attention to the view of the marina. These also add a sense of coziness to the outdoor room.

The owners of this property found two distinct ways to bring the indoor/outdoor lifestyle to their Marina-based home. However, you only need one area to open onto an outdoor room, balcony, or terrace to benefit from frameless glass doors. In fact, if you have breathtaking views or fantastic weather most of the year round, you are missing out by not having frameless glass doors.
