Whether a business is small and select or large and diverse, it needs to cater to the desires of its customers. Customers are the consumers of all products, they drive the market and they determine whether a business will be a success or not. What does this have to do with maximizing space? Simple answer, when it comes to the consumer, space is in the eye of the beholder. They like to dine in a restaurant that is open and they like to shop in a store where they are not crowded by the walls, aisles or merchandise.
Lanai doors provide both the illusion and the reality of space that consumers find desirable. Exterior Lanai doors are ideal for commercial and retail storefronts, especially those located in picturesque areas. A corner storefront, for example, can take advantage of the wrap around bi-folding doors that open the area up to the view whether they are open or closed.
The terraced restaurant already understands the need to open up the exterior and make it apart of the interior. By blending the business into the landscaping, customers are offered the dual treat of a spectacular location mixed with spectacular service. Or at least, that’s the idea. Exterior Lanai doors are ideal for restaurants that want to be able to offer the view, no matter what the weather and open it all the way up when the weather is pleasant.
Bookstores, Law Offices & Retail Rejoice
Interior Lanai doors are perfect for the law office, bookstore or restaurant that wants to create the illusion of unending space, while still managing privacy and separation of space. While French doors convey a message of cottage, country and affluence and sliding glass doors convey a message of convenience, interior Lanai doors deliver the attractiveness of enhancing any area’s natural space.
A restaurant may divide itself with an interior Lanai door for normal business hours, providing a space for regular customers and another for larger parties. A bookstore may separate a delightful child’s area, decorated and sparkling from the rest of the bookstore so that both children and adults can enjoy their areas without disrupting the other.
Why choose a Lanai door over other types of doors? For a businessperson, the answer should be simple enough. Lanai doors offer flexibility in appearance. A standard door is exactly that, standard. Once it is installed, that is exactly where it stays. It opens one way or the other and that’s it. A sliding glass door is similarly limited in options. Lanai doors, on the other hand, are not.
Their limitations are completely up to the owner.
Creativity is the Key
Lanai doors offer creative solutions that are both practical and pleasant. They increase the sensation of positive space a business may want whether it’s inviting the exterior into the interior or it’s opening the interior up to new ways of managing space. Lanai doors are far more flexible than a wall and are even better, when mounted to the ceiling. This is due to absence of floor hardware, which people would normally have to step over.
The transition from one side of a Lanai door to another is smooth. When the doors are closed, the illusion of space remains through the glass, but when they are open; it is as though they were never there to begin with. With so many similarities in businesses, restaurants and homes, Lanai doors are the best way to maximize space and create a unique atmosphere that customers will remember and want to revisit.
