Modern home designs increasingly have to incorporate functionality and multiple uses for each room in the home. Home design clients are questioning the future performance of a home coping with the changes of a growing family needs, including intergenerational living. Converting rooms from one use to another is enhanced with clever building design, whether it’s a new build or a renovation.
The growing popularity of these ‘flex’ rooms, has been predicted to increase in 2014, according to a recent article for the US Realtor Association’s website. An example of this was incorporating a bathroom, living area and a seperate entrance together, which can then be divided off to function separately from the rest of the house. This is ideal for guests or teenagers, or even elderly parents that must be cared for.
Specialised Interior doors can be used as room dividers with an ability to roll away into internal walls, combining rooms. Juralco’s Series 350, top hung internal sliding doors eradicate the need for a bottom rail, so rooms can be smoothly combined without a rail to trip over or ruin the look. Modern infills for these doors include toughened glass which can be frosted for privacy, but will still allow light to flow through to rooms. Custom made doors have the versatility to work with the individual home design, for requirements from simple minimalist doors through to heavy structured panel designs.
