Many people still believe sliding doors and other minimalistic features are only suitable for new builds. But the truth is, updating your home with a modern feature is a great way to increase the value of a property while adding a little wow factor. Which is exactly what we did for this charming property near Ipswich using moving corner glass.
For this project, the architect wanted to add an extension to let in light and maximise the use of family space in all seasons. And while they were very conscious of keeping the brickwork and feel of the extension in keeping with the main property, they ultimately wanted a modern extension.
We recommended Ultraline sliding doors in Black Grey RAL7021 matt to complement the brickwork. This would be supplied in a 3 pane configuration meeting on a floating corner, with one pane moving into a cavity wall pocket. And to really open up the skyline we also suggested a fixed window in a matching profile. Of all the systems they saw, Ultraline was the only one that could have a 3 pane sliding door meeting a single pane door on a floating corner into a pocket.
At drawings and survey stages, we took care to ensure that the frames would be fully hidden by brickwork to create the frameless sliding door aesthetic they were after. It’s this level of detail that makes for a smooth installation and gorgeous end result.
This particular extension fits onto the kitchen area, helping to make the transition from outdoors to indoors seamless. Needless to say, this creates a stunning setting for late night get togethers or lazy family afternoons. The customers can now enjoy more natural light, space and freedom in how they use their living space. Bliss.
