    We’re still loving steel-framed glazingDoors that feature glazed sections framed in black steel can create a gorgeous statement. Houzz users are still gathering design inspiration for using them in numerous areas of the home.Steel-framed patio doors are popular, but so are black-edged shower screens and internal doors and windows. A glazed division like the one here provides the best of both worlds, creating privacy without blocking the light – and, of course, it looks stunning.

    Architect Your Home added this to 10 Design Questions to Ask About Knocking Down a Wall7 February 2018

    How many degrees of separation are there?Often, one of the most dramatic effects of knocking down a wall is the change in the level of natural daylight. Many homes have an darker inner room, traditionally used as the dining room, which has in more recent times become underused. If going totally open-plan isn’t for you, then the effect of openness can still be achieved by installing a glazed screen and doors. Here, the minimal metal frame enables the maximum amount of light to flow between the rooms while maintaining an acceptable degree of separation.

    Sarah Warwick added this to How to Zone an Open-plan Space? Here's the Clear Solution23 August 2017

    Divide a rectangleOpening from front to back of a Victorian house can result in a long, narrow room, so a glass partition can help with the proportions of the resulting space without losing any of the benefits of going open plan. Two squarer rooms makes positioning furniture easier, especially if the fireplaces are still in place.Here, the central doors open with fixed panels each side. If you were considering something comparable for your own home, it would be worth weighing up the pros and cons between something like this and a design with bifolds that allow the two spaces to be fully open to each other when desired, depending on how you plan to use the space or rooms.
