The growing popularity of these ‘flex’ rooms, is predicted to increase, according to an article for US Realtor website, as home design clients are questioning the future performance of a home coping with lifestyle changes, such as a growing family and intergenerational living. For example incorporating a bathroom, living area and a separate entrance, which can then be divided off to function separately from the rest of the house makes it an ideal space for guests or teenagers, or even elderly parents that must be cared for.
Specialised interior doors with the ability to roll away can be used as room dividers, an ideal solution for combining or converting rooms.
Juralco’s Series 350, top hung internal sliding doors eliminate 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, while allowing light to flow through to rooms.
Doors can be custom made to complement a home's individual design and meet any design requirements from simple minimalist doors to heavy structured design panels.
