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!
Maximise your client’s lighting
Clear Edge Glass retractable sliding glass door systems effortlessly invite natural light to flood and fill your client’s home. Warm, bright sunshine is essential for any Australian home, and our retractable glass will work to draw in the sun’s beneficial rays without turning your client’s home into a humid greenhouse. Our Low-E Glass Technology works a little bit like a polarised pair of glasses: protecting your eyes (or in this case, your interior) from sun damage, overheating, and even road noise!
Maximise your client’s view
Frame a sweeping view for your client in a wall of edgeless glass. Open your client’s living room up to the outdoors by replacing an otherwise bland wall, square window, or clunky sliding door with our sleek, stylish Clear Edge Glass Door system. Open or closed, Clear Edge Glass doors offer a classy, modern solution to Architects who might be looking to make the most of a beautiful location. Be it the communication of a gorgeous green garden or a sweeping oceanic vista, let Clear Edge Glass Doors do all the talking for your next architectural design!
Give your client a smarter space to work with
Installing Clear Edge Glass Doors into the design of your client’s home will allow easier access, freedom and flow between their interior and garden/outdoor entertaining area. By eliminating dated sliding door designs and investing in a sleek wall of foldable glass doors, you’ll provide your client with sleek simplicity and functionality – the likes of which they’ve probably never known!
Imagine being able to unite your deck and living room in a matter of seconds, without any chunks of metal to trip over or sliding doors to push only half a distance away. This is the magic of Clear Edge Glass: a system that wastes no time in neatly getting out of the way when you want to seamlessly join the interior and exterior of your ideal entertainment area.
Treat your clients to a home that functions and appears more beautifully than they could have ever dreamed of with Clear Edge Glass Doors!

One of the worst worries we face during the winter is mould and mildew. Moisture builds in our homes as we take hot showers, boil the jug and simple breath indoors during the winter, and if we aren’t opening up our homes to a sufficient amount of fresh air and light each winter, we’re going to be facing the unhealthy consequences. We understand that keeping a home bright and full of fresh air can be challenging during winter, especially when opening up your home means letting out all the warm air!
Fortunately, we have a rather stylish and practical solution, and it comes in the functionality of our frameless glass sliding door system.
Clear the air
While your Clear Edge Glass doors are a fully retractable glass door system, this doesn’t mean that you are limited to an ‘all or nothing’ opened or closed setting. Would you like to let in some fresh air to promote healthy ventilation throughout your home on a cold winters day? We have a way!
Simply fold one panel completely open, then slide each remaining glass sliding door slightly along until a small gap remains between each pane of glass. These small gaps will work beautifully as a temporary ventilation system, inviting a crisp winter breeze to work its way through your home.
Our Clear Edge Glass foldable glass doors are undoubtedly the best solution to any dark, damp and dreary homes. Invite instantaneous light into any room of your home when you choose to replace one wall (or even half a wall) with a section of our foldable glass doors or windows. With nothing to block its path, daylight will travel effortlessly through a wall of Clear Edge Glass doors, bringing with it the antibacterial, anti-dust and altogether warming properties of natural sunlight.
Worried you’ll lose heat through your Clear Edge Glass Doors while your blinds are up? No worries: Clear Edge has you covered. We offer Frameless Glass treated to be Low E, or ‘Low Emissivity Glass’. With a special coating of super thin metallic oxide, shortwave solar energy can enter the building, but the longwave energy being pumped through your heaters is kept inside. Essentially, light gets in and the cold weather stays out! It’s easy on the heat pump: our sliding door system provides Australia’s most efficient and attractive thermal insulation through a wall of sleek glass.
Sit back and watch the show
There’s something magical about being able to cuddle up behind a wall of comfortably-closed Clear Edge glass sliding doors on a rainy day. With uninterrupted views through our ingenious frameless glass, you’ll be able to enjoy a full view of those dramatic winter storms. Our frameless design offers homeowners views without any obnoxious metal frames getting in the way, so you’ll feel constantly connected with the world outside while enjoying all the warmth and comfort of the indoors.
With Clear Edge Glass, its the best of both worlds really!
We’ve had a blustery few days here in Melbourne, and as the first chill of Winter kicks in we feel it’s probably a good time to reassess our sunrooms in preparation for the colder months ahead.
Many Australian sunrooms go unused (and severely underappreciated, we think) during Winter. However, the whole purpose of this space is to provide your family with a comfortable indoor area in which to enjoy plenty of sun and sweeping views without having to open curtains, windows and doors! Technically you should be able to enjoy a cosy morning cuppa any given day of June, July and August in your sunroom (without freezing your toes off), but this is generally only possible if you’ve invested in the following feature…
Our customers keep telling us that the thing they love most about Clear Edge Glass Doors is how transformative they are; not only to the look of a home, but to the total lifestyle of each resident. When a wall of Clear Edge Glass sliding doors are installed, the very dynamic of a home is changed completely. Read on to discover how our retractable glass doors work their monumental magic…
As an architect, we understand that you want your design to serve your client as intelligently and attractively as possible. If you’ve been searching for that special feature to give your design an edge, look no further than Clear Edge Glass. Our retractable, frameless sliding glass door system has been tried, tested and proven to provide Australians with a safe, sleek, structured wall of glass that they are free to open or close with ease.
While most of us are reluctant to let summer go, there’s no denying the shorter days and nippier nights. Sure, we’ve still got a few hours of sunshine to enjoy after work, and more on most weekends, but sooner or later the breezy season will be in full swing. If you’ve been enjoying your outdoor entertainment area all summer long, and you’d like to continue that indoor/outdoor lifestyle well into winter, then we suggest you read on!
How many times have you hunted for a new restaurant, only to end up somewhere you’ve already been before? Why do we do this when there are so many new and exciting places available to us?
Unfortunately in most cases, new restaurants aren’t as easy to investigate as shops. While we can usually scan a shop through its windows and make up our mind about whether or not we’d want to shop there, restaurants, bars and cafes don’t generally offer that luxury. Signage and stylish outdoor seating areas are all well and good, but we’re more inclined to spend our evenings eating at the places we can get a good look at.
The best way to totally open up your restaurant both visually and literally to potential diners is through Clear Edge Glass doors. Our foldable glass doors provide a beautiful and practical window into your beautiful, bustling restaurant. Through frameless glass doors, a passerby can fully take in the sights, sounds and smells of your stunning eatery!
Some of our fondest childhood memories are those we spent paddling in the pool. Whether it was our swimming pool, the neighbor’s, a family member’s or a friend’s, we’ve all had a summer splash to remember! Spending a summer by the pool as a kid is a delight, but it’s always been a bit of a challenge for the grown-ups.
Yes, while the little ones splash in and out of the pool, it’s the parents who are on life-guard and cleanup duty.
