The walls of this modern home are made from mostly glass panels, allowing plenty of natural light to flood into the space, making the home feel warm and open. To aid with this open feeling, designers added an open concept floor plan to the space, allowing each of the rooms to seamlessly flow into the next.
Glass panels keep the room looking and feeling open while offering secure travel up this staircase. The natural look of the wood stairs blends beautifully with the light hardwood flooring. A black handrail and stainless steel sconce complete the modern design.
This modern living room features floor-to-ceiling glass wall panels that provide a great view of Phoenix. Some walls can be moved for access to the porch outside. Modern seating includes built-in shelving for displaying accessories.
Step through the decorative stone front door into the entryway of this modern home. A panel of chevron marble tile creates movement through the hall space past the frosted glass wall and into the open design of the home.
One end of this light-filled white kitchen, which shares a wall of panel-glass windows with the adjacent dining room, has been transformed into a cozy sitting area furnished with a lovely antique loveseat.
A marble floor panel in a herringbone design creates subtle movement in this modern hallway. A deep charcoal gray color on the walls and ceiling provides a lovely contrast to the light floor and neutral tones of the next room. Frosted glass panels keep the space bright, and a small bench provides a place to sit.
A large black console table graces this transitional entryway with a tall glass buffet lamp and an oversized sculptural mirror. White wall paneling opens up and lightens the space, while chevron ottomans give the entryway a fresh, trendy feel.
Peek inside this modern mansion through floor-to-ceiling exterior glass walls. In harmony with the floating concrete wall, the roof extends over fixed glass panels as natural wood ceilings blur the line between interior and exterior.
Glass walls disappear to connect interior rooms with the patio that stretches all along this home's outer edge. The ceiling's wood paneling visually joins the two spaces, making the difference between indoors and out even more seamless.
Dark, earthy tones create a dramatic ambiance in this modern hall. A short set of stairs creates levels and highlights the contrast of the light, neutral upper floor and the dark, polished lower floor. A frosted glass wall and wood paneled wall bring beautiful texture to the space. A neutral stone door adds an unexpected touch.
To create an indoor-outdoor feel in the dining room and kitchen, designers used ten foot high stacking glass panel doors. This wall showcases the aged, white French Oak floors and custom table in the dining room, creating a seamless entertaining space for the homeowners.
This light-filled office looks out onto a zen-like courtyard with soft curves and a tall brick fence for privacy. A large grouping of framed, black-and-white photos fit with the home's vintage design, while the paneled walls continue onto the home's modern exterior.
Sliding doors can work in a wide range of architectural styles and configurations, including a curved opening like the one shown here. “Sliding glass walls offer more flexibility in configuration than folding glass walls. Sliding glass panels stack or disappear into a pocket when open, opening up living spaces to the outdoors,” says Ximena Rojas, Marketing Director for Panda Windows & Doors.
