Sliding patio doors to welcome Spring into your home
Published: 19th March 2018
With Spring finally upon us, we’re looking forward to making the most of our patio space during the sunnier weather. If you’re planning to install a new patio door and aren’t sure which style to choose, here are some of the benefits of choosing a new sliding door.
One of the main benefits of having a sliding door in your home is that they allow you to flood the room with lots of natural light. Since the doors consist of large panes of glass, sunlight can pour into your home and make the space much brighter and warmer. And because all of our sliding doors are designed with energy efficiency in mind, they will keep the heat in when temperatures aren’t very warm outside.
Because sliding doors glide over each other on a track instead of opening on a hinge, they are a great choice for smaller rooms or wherever you’d like to make the most of the indoor space. Since you don’t need to leave any room for the door to open, you can make full use of the inside floorspace. And because they’re made up of large panes of glass, sliding doors really open the space up and create the illusion of a larger room.
Our sliding doors have narrow sightlines, meaning that the door frames won’t impede on your view as much as other patio doors might. The style of a sliding door lends itself to bigger glass panels and smaller, sleeker frames to allow you to enjoy uninterrupted, panoramic views of your garden.
Great for entertaining
If you like to spend as much time outside as possible once the sun starts shining, or you love to invite your family and friends over for barbecues in the Summer, having a sliding door leading to your garden can make entertaining much easier. Your guests will be able to move easily in and outdoors, allowing you to use the whole space without restriction. And because the doors can span up to 6 metres wide, you will also be able to easily carry additional seating outside to accommodate your guests.
