Therefore, when creating Sliding Glass Barn Doors you’ll want to take these elements into consideration. That way your Glass Barn Doors seamlessly integrate into the style of your home.
Scandinavian Minimalism Design is the first style for home decor that pops up on the list, according to Apartment Therapy. It’s grown in popularity for its key features such as clean lines, neutral color palette, light and airy spaces, functional design, and simple accents.
But the key feature that sets the “Scandi” design apart, is the concept of “hygge”! This is central to Scandinavian Minimalism, because it represents simplicity and calm atmosphere. This ambience can easily be achieved by incorporating Sliding Glass Barn Doors that beautifully usher in soft lighting, a sense of nostalgia and serenity.
Mid-Century Modern Design is such a fun and retro-chic style! Influencing homes from 1930’s through to the 60’s, this decor embraces features like organic and geometric shapes, pops of vibrant colors that add energy, and pieces that are both functional and simple.
When creating the perfect Mid-Century Modern Glass Barn Doors, you’ll want to consider other patterns such as mod prints which include bold and graphic designs. And, then there are natural-inspired prints featuring botanical motifs like leaves, branches, or flowers. Stripes are also often found in this style, whether horizontal or vertical, they bring a sense of rhythm and visual appeal to the overall design.
Bohemian Design, (a.k.a. boho or boho-chic), is a style that embraces free-spiritedness, eclecticism, and a sense of artistic expression. It draws inspiration from a mix of patterns and textiles. This looks like a layering of different patterns such as paisleys, floral, tribal, and geometric prints; with, textiles like tapestries, Moroccan rugs, and embroidered fabrics that add texture and visual interest. A Glass Barn Door is the perfect way to reinforce this key element.
Boho Design also features colorful palettes that are rich and saturated, in order to create a cozy and relaxed atmosphere. At the end of the day this design captivates the essence of individuality and self-expression.

Can Glass Sliding Barn Doors Be Customized With Different Patterns Or Textures?
Absolutely! With over 35 years of experience in Frosted Glass, we have a vast catalog of unique designs to choose from, or we can customize something that is truly one of a kind! We call this from concept to design!
We have 2 main elements that help you achieve not only the exact look that you’re wanting, but also the exact Privacy Level that your lifestyle is needing. By offering these options, you’ll also be able to stay within your budget without sacrificing the quality of your designed Glass Door!
As you start to create your Glass Barn Door you’ll first decide what type of Glass Finish (or background) you want. We offer 3 Glass Finishes: Clear Glass, Gluechip Glass, and Frosted Glass. Below you’ll see examples of what one design looks like on each of these Glass Finishes.
Next you’ll decide how you want your artwork hand sandblasted onto your Sliding Glass Barn Door. Here at Sans Soucie our Frosted Glass is all made by hand through the art of sandblast etching and carving. We offer 3 Glass Effects: 1D, 2D, and 3D (solid and enhanced). Each of these effects will give the overall look of your Glass Door a slightly different appearance, based on the Glass Effect you choose. It will also affect the price. Our 1D is the most affordable Glass Effect, and our 3D Enhanced is our most expensive.
Our 1D Glass Effect also comes in 2 options to choose from: Positive and Negative. The 1D Positive will make your design elements look solid and white, while the background is clear. The 1D Negative is opposite of 1D Positive. Instead the background will be solid and white, while your design elements will be clear.
The 2D Glass Effect is a customer favorite as it gives your artwork the stunning visual appeal with a more affordable price tag! With our 2D Frosted Glass Design Effect, the artist does a “shading”, where the sandblast density gently fades out to clear glass. This shading technique creates a “gradient-like” effect that adds a high level of complexity to the finished look. However, each shape and segment that is individually etched-with-a-gradient, will not have the carved edges seen in 3D Enhanced. Even though it requires the same amount of skill and delivers a show stopping design, it requires less time than that of the 3D Glass Effect.
3D: Solid & Enhanced
Our 3D Carved Glass Effect gives you two options: Solid and Enhanced. Both options sculpt and cut deep into the Glass Finish at varying depths. This technique creates a relief texture in the glass. This causes the carved edges of the various features in the design, to pick up the surrounding light. This results in your artwork appearing illuminated, 3 dimensional, and free-floating in the glass.
But here’s what differs between the two: The 3D Solid Glass Effect is a flat, solid white, embossed look. This Glass Effect doesn’t have any gradients, or shading that brings out your design’s details like the 3D Enhanceddoes. Our 3D Enhanced Glass Effect is our most luxurious option. This effect requires the highest level of skill andtime to create. Why? Because every design is sandblasted in stages, meaning one small segment at a time. And, then there is “shading” that is applied to your design, where the sandblast density gently fades out to clear glass. Just like the 2D Glass Effect. Taking this 3D Enhanced Glass Effect to the next level.
Through our customization process we’re able to offer 3 different Privacy Levels: Not-Private, Semi-Private, and Private. Every lifestyle and space within your home requires a variety of of Privacy Levels; which is why you can create a Sliding Glass Barn Door that meets your specific needs.
Can a sliding glass barn door be used in small spaces or tight openings?
There are so many benefits to incorporating Sliding Glass Barn Doors into your place; especially, when it comes to small spaces and tight openings. Traditional doors need the floor space to swing out; whereas, Sliding Glass Barn Doors only require a sufficient amount of wall surface to roll over. This makes them a perfect solution for a home that needs to maximize its floor space!
