Designing the house of your dreams is the best way to give your home a personal touch with the modern design elements that you can enjoy for many years. Frameless glass walls and sliding doors can add a beautiful element within a home, and there are some interior glass wall systems which help you to create a unique, stylish look and improve the functionality of the room at the same time.
An advantage of using interior glass doors and walls is that they allow more natural light to flow through your home. You can use glass in the main rooms of the house, as well as the bathrooms and other living spaces. A bathroom sliding partition can help to maintain privacy in the bathroom, without requiring the space that is needed for a swinging door.
New Kinds of Families and New Kinds of Family Spaces
The passing of the nuclear family has been recognized around the world, with a number of trends in building and apartment design aimed to make it easier for those who aren’t couples with kids to exist in real space.
In Canada and Australia, multi-family housing projects (known as “apartment buildings” in some parts of the world) have increasingly been an accepted alternative to single-family housing.
In the UK, some new interior plans offer big shared spaces, combined with private nooks, sliding partitions, and partial walls, in a layout dubbed “broken-plan living” that accounts for the dispersed sociability of the contemporary household.
Gone are the days where every room had a door and four walls. Instead of traditional rooms, there are now implied spaces. Rooms are visually connected making a home feel larger. Rooms are defined by changes in the ceiling or floors, rather than walls.
These spaces connect to each other without obstructions creating minimalistic interior design. This concept can be applied to multiple floors creating an enlarging effect of the interior space.
Tying in with open concept design, homes are including more and more spaces that have less defined purposes. Architects are now designing flex rooms with the ability to easily transform into a new area without a complete makeover or costly renovation.
This is especially true as the aging population grows. Adaptations to make independent living simpler, or adjusting a family home for the addition of an older family member are two main drivers in this growing trend.
