Different Sliding Door Options For Your Patio

When you’re looking for replacement doors for your patio the choices can seem a little overwhelming.

The first thing you need to consider is the amount of space you have available. Can the room accommodate hinged doors that swing open?

If not, sliding doors are an excellent alternative. They are low-profile and don’t take up a lot of floor space in a room. Many people think of sliding doors as strictly functional, but they can also add to the décor of a room.

There are three main options when it comes to sliding patio doors, but the decorative muntins and the variety of flange colours offer variance to create a style all your own.

Sliding French doors

Sliding French doors bring the stylish sophistication of hinged French doors to a room but offer the convenience and space-saving design of sliding doors. They are available with different glass styles depending on the level of privacy you would like to have, such as clear or bevelled.

Wide sliding doors

You can create a seamless transition between the indoors and the deck awaiting you outside with extra wide sliding patio doors. Depending on the size of your room, these sliding doors can take up nearly the entire width of a wall to give you a beautifully unobstructed view of your backyard.

Standard sliding patio doors

These typically have two large glass window panels. One is stationary while the other slides horizontally on its tracks to let foot traffic through. They don’t take up a whole lot of room and you can personalize the design with decorative muntins.
