This humble abode in Point Loma is a great example of just how effectively the Cover Glass system can transform a homeThe homeowners chose to install systems in multiple areas of their house to take full advantage of the flexibility and aesthetics sliding glass brings. Let’s take a tour to see what they did.

A Comfortable Kitchen Workspacekitchen frameless glass

Besides a window system above the countertops enhances functionality and comfort in the kitchen. Now, there is plenty of natural light entering the room right where it is most useful. When the window is open — and it can open fully, thanks to the stacking panels — fresh air fills the room, removing cooking odors and helping the room remain at an ideal temperature.

Taking A Closer Look

Even when the panels are completely closed, the picture is crystal clear, adding to the pleasure of being in the kitchen, as it brightens up even the most routine tasks, like washing the dishes.

Chic Bar-Style Window

The shelf right by the window allows the homeowners to use the opening as a bar or to pass dishes of food to friends and family members outside. Either way, it’s excellent for entertaining. You can also see how the glass panels fold out of the way to on side, maximizing the size of the opening.

A Living Room Connected to the Outside

The recessed lower tracks add to the seamless connection between the interior and exterior, as the homeowners can walk straight outside without stepping over anything.

Stylish and Secure

Furthermore, the reflective glass maintains privacy for the inside. Best of all, though, is that when the door closes, the home is completely secure because of the extra-strength glass and the top-hung panels, which cannot push open from their tracks, as well as the advanced locking system, which only allows the panels to be unlocked from the inside.

Open and Close Combinations

This photo shows the last option and demonstrates how one or more panels left in place can form a glass wall. In the picture, you can also see that the homeowners’ choice of a black track complements the interior design.

Make the Most of Your Space

The addition of Cover Glass transformed this humble home into a picture of modern elegance. In other words, expansive, upscale projects are not the only ones that can benefit from our sliding glass systems. If you want to improve functionality, infuse flexibility into your space, or take advantage of a patio, a balcony, or even great views, Cover Glass is the solution.
