Being able to enjoy the gorgeous San Diego weather on a daily basis is a real blessing and for homeowners, it often means the outdoor areas of your home are just as important as the inside of it. San Diego homeowner use their outdoor areas for entertaining and relaxing, so it’s important that their home showcases a fluid transition from inside to outside.
Patio doors are often overlooked details, but can make all the difference in opening up your home. Here we will look at a few different styles of patio doors, and go over which may be the right choice for your home.
Bi-Fold Patio Doors:
San Diego bi-fold patio doors are ideal for homes that have extra wall space. They create a well-designed doorway without obstructing your view. The doors fold back rather than slide, which completely opens up the doorway allowing easy access in and out of the house. Some home owners are choosing to replace entire walls with folding glass doors so their living room or kitchen areas can easily become connected to their patio or backyard.
Old Factory Doors:
If your home has a rustic, artsy appeal than old factory doors are a great choice. They open out like French doors rather than slide back and usually incorporate bold colors and iron metal work. These doors are a great statement piece that will showcase outdoor areas as well as add style to any home.
Double French Doors:
Another outward opening patio door option is double French doors. These are perfect for more classic looking, or country style homes. The doors incorporate a good amount of wood, often with a crown molding or cut out design, so they may not be the best option if you want a clear view. However, if your patio is used specifically for the purpose of a lounge or outdoor seating area, than French doors may be just the thing you’re looking for.
Sliding Patio Doors:
This is the more traditional and popular patio door option for home owners. Sliding doors fit wall on virtually any side wall and doesn’t obstruct the view at all. The downside to these doors would be its lack of design appeal and opening space.
Skyline Patio Doors:
This pricey option is a must for architecture fans. The glass stretches up into part of the ceiling creating an “observatory” effect that looks great in any type of weather. These patio doors usually have to be custom designed but will bring an eye catching element to the room.
