At this project just outside Birmingham, we helped our customers achieve the glazed extension of their dreams with the use of our aluminium sliding glass doors, without compromising on space or aesthetic.
One of the most common reasons for adding an extension to a property is to open up space, and open up possibilities of what can be achieved within the space. Whether you’re after a dedicated BBQ zone, an open-plan reading nook or somewhere the entire family can get together, an extension can offer endless inspiration.
Our customers were after exactly that. In particular, they requested products that would help them create a relaxing zone that flowed from outdoors to indoors – while maintaining lots of natural light and a tasteful modern style.
When all the details come together in the right way, you’re guaranteed that all important wow factor. During this project we were only too happy to lend our expertise to some of the smaller design elements to make sure this extension ticked all of the boxes.
The floating corner addition in particular was a welcome surprise to the customers who didn’t know it was possible. In addition, the fact that the frame could slide easily into a pocket wall really helped to create the illusion of more space while decreasing sightlines, and the customers think it looks stunning.
Then there was the colour choice. We suggested brushed platinum anodised finish to complement the white interior paint and light coloured tiling. The added benefit of this anodised aluminium colour finish being that it tends to ‘vanish’ into the daylight, creating a minimalist illusion.
Installation was completed in two stages, installing the outer frame 4 weeks after survey prior to the main installation (so as not to interrupt other trades). We then returned 4 weeks later to fit the glass.
