When deciding what style of door to choose for your walkways, patios, decks, or porches, the choice often comes down to sliding glass or French doors—but how do you choose?
Sliding Glass Doors
Sliding glass (or gliding) doors are composed of mostly glass encased in a metal frame. They have two panel sections, one fixed-stationary and one mobile that slides horizontally along a parallel track. Requiring almost no space to open, sliding glass doors are ideal for smaller spaces. This type of door provides you with unobstructed views and allows a lot of natural light into your space which can also create the illusion of having a larger space. However, some homeowners find the clear views to be a negative since this type of door also allows clear views into your home as well. Sliding glass doors add a sleek, modern appearance to a space which homeowners living in older, more traditionally styled home may not prefer.
Highly decorative French doors feature a wooden frame around one or more window panels and are often used as a divider between your interior rooms (frequently used when entering a formal living area) or as a beautiful access point to your outdoor living areas. The wooden frame can be painted, stained, and styled in a variety of ways, making French doors a dynamic design element. Due to the fact that these doors swing open(often inward), space is required inside of your room to accommodate the swinging span of their opening. However, French doors open the entire width of their doorframe(versus the single panel offered on a sliding glass door) allowing you to bring large objects in and out of the space.
