Pivot doors, although common in ancient buildings, rarely are seen in homes. But if you desire an element of surprise, choose pivot doors and windows.
Instead of hinges, sliders or tracks, pivot doors rotate around an overhead pin located near the center of the door. This allows the weight of the door to rest on the hinges, which in turns allows you to easily open a heavy and oversized door. Pivot doors still seal just as tightly as traditional doors and locks can be applied.
Pivot doors open up a new world of grand entrance doors. Front doors that would normally be much too heavy and large can now open with minimal effort.
Pivot windows can allow you to bring in the great outdoors, making your home appear larger. What better way to enjoy a sea breeze in your home, then by opening a wall of windows?
