Hinged patio doors with built in blinds are a great choice if you have plenty of room to open and close them. They can swing in or out and can also come in a French style, which is a very common option to have on a patio. Built in blinds could be especially useful as they would not get in the way while opening and closing the door.
Since you can control the amount of sunlight that peaks through the built in blinds, they can help keep your home at a stable temperature. Energy efficiency is important when it comes to your homes windows and doors. They give your home a boost in efficiency, so that is an added bonus for having blinds built in patio doors.
For a sleek update, a black front door can fit with almost any homes style, giving it a contemporary feel. If your décor tends to be more modern, it is a good idea to update some of your doors hardware to match. Stick with silver and sleek door hardware to complete the contemporary look.
French doors have been around for centuries. Since the 17th century to be exact. The beauty of their design was certainly the divided light glass panels that provided maximum daylight to interior rooms something that would forever become their trademark. But being essentially long narrow windows paired together and hinged on opposite sides, the design also afforded another remarkable feature, no center support. As such, the windows doors could be opened out or in to provide full width access to an exterior balcony or patio. A beautiful thing indeed.
