Patio Doors: Ideas and Options
Your outdoor living space is an extension of your home, and that why you'll want to consider a variety of options and ideas for patio doors before finalizing your project.
One of the most common patio door options is the French patio door. This style incorporates glass window panes in the door, allowing an unobstructed view from the home's interior to the outside space and vice versa. It can create a natural transition from the inside to the patio. French patio doors are usually available in wood, vinyl and PVC, and they can be configured as either swinging or sliding doors.
Whereas French patio doors are a more traditional approach, contemporary sliding doors have a more modern look. These doors offer greater simplicity in that they create no obstacles at all to furniture placement, inside or out.
A third patio door option is the folding patio door. Designed with three or more panels, these doors fold upon opening and slide on a track, similar to sliding doors. Folding patio doors can create a unique visual aesthetic and are often a good fit for more modern patio designs.
