Double glass doors take a special place because they fit the interior of private houses, modern offices, as well as business centres. They have attractive and ‘transparent’ look.
You can’t install ordinary doors in a living room, as they are not suitable for this room. The doorways of guest rooms are much wider than that of a bedroom, or a bathroom.
