In the summertime, your patio can become your sanctuary. The place in your home where the regular house rules don’t matter! Put your feet up, leave your shoes on, and don’t worry about spills. After all, you’re outside! What better way to introduce that part of your home than with the ultimate patio door? Most of us don’t get the opportunity to choose our own patio door; it usually comes with the house when we buy it. Now is your chance to customize this part of your home with the right door for the job.
Sliding Patio Door
The classic, with two large glass doors sitting flush to your walls that slide on tracks to give you access in and out, as well as a lot of light into your home. If you have a smaller home, or a small patio, these work great as they don’t take up a lot of space, unlike a door that opens on a hinge.
Hinged Patio Door
Much like a classic door, a hinged patio door will give you the brightness of a sliding door with its large glass panes, but take advantage of a room with more space. Normally set to swing inwards into the house to save space on your patio, they can be set to swing whichever way you prefer.
Bi-Parting Patio Door
This is a great one if you have the space. Think *four* patio doors, but two of them slide open to give you an opening to your patio.
Folding Patio Door
Another great option if you have a large opening to cover, is a folding patio door that folds up like an accordion, giving you plenty of space for getting in and out of your home onto your patio.
If you’re wanting to go classic, then French Doors are in a class all their own. A hinged door with glass panes for nearly the whole length, they give you light in your home, a clear view from the patio making it look and feel bigger, and a high-class feeling that only French Doors can provide.
