Traditional or Modern: Which Patio Door Is Right for You?

One of the best ways to improve your home’s aesthetic appeal is to invest in patio doors. These beautiful fixtures add functionality by creating a seamless transition between your indoor and outdoor living spaces. To make sure you get the most out of them, it’s best to choose one that is easily accessible while also fitting the aesthetics of your home.

Patio Door

Two types come to mind: sliding and French patio doors. Renewal by Andersen® of Wyoming discusses the benefits of each option below.

Sliding Patio Doors

Sliding patio doors open and close along a horizontal track, making them a great choice if you have limited space in your home. They feature a wide expanse of glass and narrow frames, giving the entire fixture a modern vibe that fits well within any home style, more so in interiors that boast a contemporary aesthetic.

The configuration of today’s sliding patio doors is such that they can allow an adequate amount of sunlight to enter and brighten up your indoor living space as well as provide an uninterrupted view of your patio, deck or any outdoor view. They can be equipped with screens too so you can open your door to let fresh air in while keeping pesky bugs and pests out.

French Patio Doors

If you like a hinged door that opens either inward or outward, then French patio doors are for you. They can surely make your home look classy and elegant, especially when paired with elements that dominate traditional, old-fashioned interiors.

French patio doors also offer great functionality. In addition to the normal side-by-side French doors, they can be configured to have three doors in a row. This, however, will depend on how wide your patio door opening is.

Choosing between the two options boils down to your preferences and space requirements.
