We’re getting some wild and windy ones here in Melbourne at the moment! Loads of freezing days doused with downpours of rain. While the farmers might be enjoying the wet weather, it simply counts for wasted space here in the city and the suburbs. We tend to lose our outdoor entertainment areas and balconies when the wild winds and rains hit.
Or do we?
Perhaps not! When your balcony is enclosed by beautiful walls of Clear Edge Glass frameless glass doors, you’ll have the freedom to enjoy your outdoor areas in luxurious warmth all year long! Here’s how…
Why should people have all the fun when it comes to our clever retractable glass door design? Your plants and pets are important, and you’ll be pleased to know that both flora and fauna can benefit from Clear Edge Glass sunrooms just as much as we humans do! Is your home lucky enough to feature walls of Clear Edge Glass doors?
Here’s what your pets and plants might think of this lovely interior/exterior feature…
Is it just us, or is it getting cold in here?
It seems like the cooler weather was right on cue, hitting just as we turned our clocks back an hour for daylight savings. While the days might be getting dimmer and the sky damper, we’ve got a few tricks up our sleeves for keeping things bright and beautiful around the home during autumn and winter.
The savvy architect knows that safety and style should go hand-in-hand when it comes to designing a home. Fortunately (for both architects and homeowners alike), Clear Edge Glass retractable door systems are as functional as they are fashionable. Offering a wealth of natural light and an overall appearance of more space, Clear Edge Glass doors should be your go-to design feature for indoor/outdoor flow-focussed Australian homes.
We’ve all got a sunny spot in the house where we like to sit and soak up a little light. If you live here in Australia you’ll know that such situations are only short-lived, especially during those intense 30 degree days. If you’re eager to maximise on that sunshine without feeling like you’re sitting in an oven, read on!
So you’ve just purchased a property with a killer view. Perhaps your home looks out to an endless oceanic vista or a sparkling city skyline? Maybe you’d just like to see the greenery you worked so hard to accumulate and arrange in your garden? Whatever scene you’d like to see, the best views are found through a wall of Clear Edge Glass doors.
Here’s how it works…
Usually, the generic windows and doors that you install around your home come with thick frames and cumbersome latches. Opening and closing your average sliding door usually involves some serious tugging, and only ever results in your door being piled against another door. When you open a common sliding door or window, you’ll be left with a section of wasted space where you cannot enter or exit your home (or enjoy your breeze), and you miss out on a portion of your view.
Even most bifold doors can take up precious view real estate with their clunky frames. Nothing ruins a gorgeous sunset quite like a row of obnoxious wooden panels sitting awkwardly between your bifold doors.
And don’t get us started on those toe-catching floor tracks that you’ll commonly trip over when you pass through an open sliding or bifold door.
With all this considered, let’s see how the Clear Edge Glass retractable sliding glass door system can improve upon the clunky sliding door systems of old.
Clear Edge Glass and your view
Want to know what an evening with Clear Edge Glass looks like?
Picture this: you’re sitting in your lounge with your evening cuppa watching the sun setting over the ocean. You can see every sun-soaked cloud from the comfort of your couch without having to open a single door or window. If you wanted to invite that sea breeze into your home, all you’d have to do is smoothly slide each of your elegant glass panels to one side and stack them neatly against your wall. Sit back and enjoy the uninterrupted view without a single panel, frame or track to obscure the seascape.
That’s a Clear Edge Glass sort of evening.

It’s a new way of indoor/outdoor entertaining, and it all starts with a Clear Edge Glass retractable window system.
As we make our way through the busiest months of the year, the promise of a beachside holiday in the summer feels like an eternity from today. To get you through these hectic months leading up to summer, we’ve devised a few interior tricks to help you establish your own personal paradise at home; a tranquil oasis to retreat to after a tough week at work.
Capture all the elements of a relaxing beachside holiday with these tips and tricks…
Select the sunniest space
Your private faux beachside oasis starts with the sunniest space in your home. If you’ve lived in your home for a while, you’ll be well acquainted with the room that sees the most afternoon sunshine. Locate the wall that meets the most rays of sunlight and let this be the new location for your elegant wall of Clear Edge Glass doors. If you’re already lucky enough to have our frameless glass door system installed in your Australian home, you’ll know that this spot, be it a sunroom, living room, dining room or otherwise, will be the perfect place to establish your DIY tropical retreat.
Bring the beach into your abode
Let your interior be inspired by natural elements that evoke a summer by the sea throughout your home. Decorate your interior with your favourite tropical motifs:
- fill jars or decorative coffee table trays with seashells and beach sand
- find tropical trees to surround your sunny room (the bigger and greener the better!)
- burn citrus or sea mist scented candles to let all your senses know that it’s time to relax
- enjoy your uninterrupted outdoor vista through frameless glass doors, or slide open your Clear Edge Glass retractable glass door system to enjoy the sounds and the smell of the ocean air
Invite the outside in
If your sunny space is situated by an outdoor entertainment area, garden, or (best of all) a pool, you can really capture that summer holiday lifestyle. By simply sliding your Clear Edge Glass Door stackable door system to one side, you’ll instantly situate your sunny indoor space among the outdoors. Enjoy the uninterrupted sights and sounds of leaves dancing in the wind, poolwater lapping and (if you’re lucky enough to be living by the ocean) a beachside vista; all without having to even leave the house! Nothing is out of reach through foldable and frameless glass doors!
