Can you match my existing door measurements?
Yes we can.
Measure from the top of the door to the center of the door handle, and from the
top of the door to the top of each hinge. We will need to know if the door
is a left hand or a right hand, and if it is an in-swing or out-swing door.

Finishing Your New Door
Lay the door flat for best performance. Sand
the entire door lightly, using #180 grit sandpaper. Always sand in the
direction of the grain. Thoroughly remove all dust prior to applying finish, a
tack cloth is recommended. Be sure to follow tack cloth manufactures
Protect the glass with plastic and blue painters tape. If your door already has
plastic on the glass, check for holes or tears and use tape to cover them up.
DO NOT USE compressed air to blow the dust off the door, as moisture in air will
cause water spotting.
Be sure to seal and finish your new door as soon as possible to help prevent
warping and cracking.
Select a high-quality oil-based primer (DO NOT USE WATER BASED SEALER OR
PRIMER COAT). Cover all surfaces evenly! Be sure to seal the Top & Bottom of
the door, as well as the sides. Apply a minimum of 2 top coats.
Do Not use black or dark colored top coats on doors that ill be exposed
to direct sunlight for extended periods of time throughout the daylight hours.
Use a pre-stain or conditioner prior to staining. Apply semitransparent stain or
clear undercoat as recommended for interior application. Apply three coats of
clear top coat varnish or polyurethane and light sand between coats.
Failure to properly seal your door will void the warranty from warping and

Call 866-855-9220 for assistance.
Can your doors be used with sliding barn door
No problem. Our decorative glass doors
look stunning hung from sliding door hardware.
We sell several styles of sliding door hardware including modern, rustic, and horseshoe.
Can your doors be used as pocket doors?
Pocket doors are made
using standard size interior doors, which our doors are, and a pocket door frame
kit. Our doors work great as pocket doors.
First, decide which of our doors you would like to
purchase to use as your pocket door. We offer doors that are completely
transparent and others that vary in opacity, any of which work beautifully as
pocket doors. Next, purchase a pocket door frame kit. You can purchase
door frame kits
Can all of your doors be used as pantry doors?
Yes they can. Our doors are wonderful for adding a special touch to a pantry area. We recommend using our
specialty pantry door or one of our more opaque doors. The most important factor in choosing pantry doors is proximity of the pantry contents to the door. The closer objects are to any glass door the more visible they will be, depending on the transparency of the glass. Call 1-866-855-9220 or email us and we can help you decide which of our door styles is right for your pantry.
Where can your doors be used?
You can use our glass interior doors in any area of your home. Our clientele order our doors for offices, bedrooms, bathrooms, kitchens, living rooms, and more. They use our doors as single doors, double doors, French doors, sliding glass pocket doors, sliding doors, and as pivoting doors.
First you must decide the kind of application in which your door will be used. Then determine the level of transparency or opacity that meets your needs, and choose the appropriate style door. We sell doors that are completely transparent and others with varying levels of opacity.
We offer jamb kits for both single and double door applications. Should you choose to include one (or more) in your order, they are shipped unassembled along with the door(s). They can be ordered with a variety of hinge finishes including bright brass, brushed chrome, bronze or satin nickel. If you have an existing door application, you can order the doors without a jamb kit and simply install them in the existing door opening.

Are your doors solid?
All of our doors are produced with engineered
stiles and rails. Engineered stiles and rails are produced using an engineered
core with a veneer applied. The benefits to this type of door construction are
greater dimensional stability, better veneer quality, more environmentally
sensible as they make better use of the raw materials involved.
How obscure (opaque) are your doors?
No glass door is completely opaque. All glass doors will allow at least an image or outline to be seen through them. Opacity is difficult to accurately measure but the following estimates may be helpful in making your selection.

Inswing or Outswing?
Decorative glass has a texture, v-groove,
etching, wording, etc. applied to one side of the glass and the other side is
smooth. If you want the texture, v-groove, wording, etc, facing you as you pull
the door open then it is an outswing door. If you want the texture, v-groove,
wording, etc, facing you as you push the door open then it is an inswing door.
What Is Textured Glass?
Textured glass is made by embossing a pattern onto molten glass to give the desired design or texture. The pattern is applied to one side of the glass, but the design can be clearly seen from both sides. Several of our
special order door designs are made using textured glass.

What Is Ceramic Frit?
Digital, Ceramic Frit Glass Decoration is a patented process that offers a
permanent way to place graphic designs on decorative glass without sandblasting
or silk screening.
The process uses the ceramic frits and colorants
that bond to the glass, so the images are permanent, fingerprint resistant and
easy to clean.
Most of the designs on the top two rows of our interior glass door gallery
of designs use digital ceramic-frit technology.

How satisfied have customers been with Ambiance
"Thank you very
much for your amazing customer service. The new door came quickly, it's gorgeous
and my contractor will appreciate the other door as a gift. The door stained up
beautifully and we'll be installing it on Monday. I am remodeling my entire
house...every room at the same time...and I cannot believe the multitude of
problems I've had with many vendors sending defective materials or the wrong
part completely and then not being willing to do anything about it. I was so
incredibly grateful that you went out of your way to remedy what I know was a
uncommon and simple mistake so quickly and with such kindness and
professionalism. I'm grateful there are companies like you to do business with
and will surely recommend you to all my friends! Thanks again!" J. Marie
"Just an e-mail
to let you know how happy my husband and I with the glass and maple door. It is
truly beautiful. Thank you for the great workmanship." M. Garcia
doors are incredible. I am a fussy California contractor and I debated
with myself many hours before ordering 4 doors and have them delivered
clear across the country from complete strangers. My hunch paid off. The
quality is incredible and the price is really really right. Delivery was
great. The guy who delivered them put them right into my garage and
inspected them to make sure there was no damage. This is a top-flight door
company. California door suppliers better wake up before this Ambiance
company from North Carolina take away all their business. Top quality, top
service and very good prices. This is an unsolicited thank you from the
heart. The guy who took the order, I think a guy named Scott had a great
personality that sealed the deal too." F. Nelson
just wanted to say "thank you" for the amazing customer service and
beautiful pantry door. I am constantly getting compliments on how gorgeous
it is and now everyone wants one! It makes such an impact in the kitchen.
The gentleman I spoke with on the phone answered all my questions and was
very helpful, shipping was fast and the product is very high quality." T
Antheaume, Design Consultant
"I want to personally
thank you, they are beautiful. Delivery was very smooth, the driver courteous,
and most of all treated my doors with TLC. I was skeptical, since I have not
order big items from the internet, In speaking with you, all my fears were put
aside. Thank you, the best is they are made in the USA, cannot get any better.
Thank You." R. Pisano
"Thanks for all
your help -- the door arrived safely and it is beautiful!" P. Corn
"Wanted to drop you a
“job well done” note. Received the ordered doors and painted them.
Remember those were very odd sizes. You cut them to fit perfectly. I’m
mean perfectly! We purchased new brushed nickel hinges’ and installed them. With
our warped floors and everything else that was not square. All three doors fit
as though they are custom made. Good job and a job well done! Kindest
Regards" H. Harris
"I recently ordered and
received 7 glass doors from your company, and wanted to take a moment to tell
you what a good experience it was. The order was delivered on time and the doors
in perfect condition. They are excellent quality and installed, they are
beautiful! They formed a new pocket door for my master bedroom and closet doors
inside. The whole space looks more sophisticated, warmer and richer.
Thank you very much for your terrific service and quality products. Best
regards." T. Walker

were installed yesterday and they are beautiful." T & T Costello
"Regarding the doors I recently purchased from Ambiance,
I just wanted to let you know how thrilled I am with them. You were very helpful
on the phone making sure I ordered exactly what I needed, and they fit perfectly
and look wonderful! Also, the driver for R&L Carriers was extremely professional
and helpful also. All in all, it was a very satisfying experience and I wouldn't
hesitate to call you again or recommend you to others.
You have a great day, and thanks so much again! Cheers," M. Good

purchased two "Normandy" interior pantry doors from your company several months
ago and am very pleased with their appearance in my kitchen." A. Loudon
"The doors arrived and I
am so pleased. One is never really certain when ordering "sight unseen" on
the internet but your doors are beautiful and perfect for our home." B.

door and how it fit in. Doesn't get any better
(shown left)." The Gorjans
"I recently purchased a door and I am very pleased with
not only the product but also the delivery. The driver was courteous and very
helpful and everything turned out perfect. Thank you" H Boissiere
"We recently made a
purchase of four "green" doors from you. We are writing to compliment you
and the rest of the staff on the professional and friendly service you offered
us. Again when we called the other day about a larger door, you were most
helpful. During the past year and a half while our home has been under
construction, we have dealt with many different companies. I wish I could
say that they offered as good of service as you did, but that was not the case.
Your company certainly stands out as the best." Christa & Steve
"Love my 18" doors. I
wanted to show you and tell you how much the 18"inch doors have made
my dressing room so much more functional. Simple clean and made the room
bigger." E. Bracken
"Please accept this letter as an expression my gratitude
for the excellent service you gave us on the beautiful doors you supplied us. I
always say one can tell more about a person’s character with how they deal with
their mistakes. The quick service you gave us on our job allowed us to stay on
schedule. Your attention to detail also caught issues we would not have noticed
until much later causing a more costly repair.
Our experience with you makes you one of the best suppliers we have ever dealt
with. We will highly recommend you to anyone looking for a quality door from a
quality company. Thanks again," B. Polanco
"I am writing to thank you for your assistance and
expertise in supplying the glass doors for my new home. I have never built
a house from the ground up, but thanks to Hurricane Katrina, I am currently
involved in a situation that is anything but pleasant! It seems to take
forever for supplies AND craftsmen to get around to wherever I am on their
lists, but eventually I have faith that the end result will be worth all of
this! You, however, were a breath of fresh air, and I truly appreciate
your prompt assistance with selection, advice on different applications and
helpfulness in the process. The doors arrived in perfect condition, as
promised, and also as beautiful as you said! I also want to thank you for
the gorgeous hinges you supplied and shipped with the Bolivian hardwood doors.
We are just to the paint stage now, but everyone who has seen the doors just
loves them, and I look forward to many years enjoying them! Thanks again,"
"Just a quick note to tell you what a pleasure it has
been dealing with your company. Our pantry door arrived quickly and with
no complications. The door is very good quality and just exactly what I
expected. The carpenter who installed the door on our new walk in pantry
was also complimentary on the ease of installation and good attention to detail.
Thank you again for making this a pleasurable experience as well as a very fun
and lovely addition to our home. I have already recommended your company
to others, and will continue doing so. Pleasure doing business with
you. " K. Marietti
for the beautiful doors
you made for our Church
"Thank you all so much for your speedy service and
My new door is absolutely beautiful. I had a party last night and everyone was
asking where to get one."
"I wanted to take this opportunity to tell you how
pleased I am with my Ambiance door. It looks truly lovely in my bathroom. The
craftsmanship and style compliment my decor. I will recommend your company to all
of my friends."
"Thank you so much for making the website ordering so
easy. I was skeptical at first to order glass edged doors online, but decided to
take the chance. I called and the customer service person was very helpful and
knowledgeable. The doors were what I was looking for and the price was better
than anything locally.
I ordered the doors on a Monday and they arrived on Friday! Fast shipping to
boot! I was putting on an addition to my house and needed two pocket doors. I
ordered the Versailles and they arrived and were very well packed and in good
condition. I also liked that the glass had plastic on both sides so I could
paint the doors without having to tape them off. A big step saver for me! I did
have one of the guys working on the addition stay with me to check the doors
before accepting them off the truck. He was very impressed with the way they
were packed and arrived. His boss said they never had any customer use the
internet for doors, but that he was going to contact you and see about using you
for their business as well. The doors look fantastic and create such an
Ambiance to our Sunroom! Great name for a great product!!
"The door arrived here in Mass. on Wednesday, after being ordered
Friday...wow, that is superb service. The quality of the door and
glass exceeded my expectations...We like it so much I've just
ordered another one for the other door in that room! Thank you so
2nd door arrived today, again, incredible service between
you and the trucking company. All opened up and lookin' good. R. LaPierre
