There are many important factors to consider when it comes to renovating or designing residential units. The primary concern that many contractors, interior designers, and property managers/owners face when tackling these projects is how to design a space that is functional and visually appealing.
Tenants want a space that has both common and modern home amenities, and buyers want spaces that appeal to tenants. The use of interior glass door solutions are a great way to attract potential buyers and renters, and they are a practical solution to provide many key features tenants want.
Upgraded and Modern Appeal
After location, key features that tenants look for in a rental property are renovations, especially in the kitchen and bathroom. Tenants don’t want to live in a space that looks like it was previously lived in. With the installation of a glass privacy wall or sliding glass door divider, apartment units can instantly look and feel brand new. Modern features can also increase property value.
Open Floor Plan/Adjustable Space
Another desirable feature for tenants is an open floor plan. Glass walls can make a smaller space feel more spacious and open. They allow tenants to adjust the apartment layouts to their needs and maximize the available square footage. For example, a glass wall or partition between a kitchen and living area can allow tenants to create a flexible space when entertaining guests.
One of the greatest advantages of installing interior glass partitions or large sliding glass doors and windows is that it increases the amount of direct sunlight entering the space. In addition to the many health benefits, natural sunlight offers stronger and better lighting than electrical illumination. Spaces with limited electrical lighting can increase their appeal by adding more sources of natural light.
You can also increase visibility in areas which commonly don’t get a lot of direct sunlight—such as a bathroom—while maintaining privacy by opting for glass with a frosted or milky finish. Natural light also makes a property look warmer and inviting, which increases your chance of leasing or selling the property.
A new feature that many renters are starting to look for in an apartment nowadays is whether or not a unit is environmentally friendly. Unlike common building materials like drywall, the glass and aluminum used to build our glass room dividers do not emit any indoor pollutants or generate waste during construction/renovation. They are also fully recyclable.
Additionally, you can earn points with the LEED Certification Program by choosing to follow green building practices, which can help strengthen your qualifications as an individual contractor or business and give you an edge over the competition.
