You have probably heard about all the tried and true methods to give a small living space the illusion of being larger; methods such as utilizing light color, placing mirrors on the walls, or clearing away the clutter. However, have you ever considered blurring the lines between your indoor and outdoor spaces with various types of glass partitions, such as a French or sliding glass door, large windows, or a folding glass wall like the ones pictured here?

Glass allows the eye to follow the room outside without the viewer realizing that there is, in fact, a divider present, and a glass partition that also serves as a doorway allows you to follow your vision outside. In this way, your smaller areas take on the appearance of being much larger, all without the cost of expanding your existing space. You can also further blur the lines by continuing the flooring and/or your color scheme from your interior space to the exterior.

And not to worry about the long, cold Boston winters. If the proper materials are used, these partitions will keep the cold air outside, while maintaining warmth and comfort inside. In addition, glass provides the benefit of additional natural light during the winter months.

Perhaps it is time to consider expanding your sense of space without physically expanding your home. If it is, you might want to consider the options discussed here. WORKS is a trusted contractor on Boston’s North Shore. Let us help you make plans to improve your home.
