Your patio is one of the most social areas of your home—the perfect area for parties and all kinds of pleasant pastimes. Patio doors play an important role in enhancing the character and feel of this area since they serve as a transition point between the indoors and outdoors. Choosing the right design conveys a specific message. Renewal by Andersen® of Phoenix takes a look at its patio doors and what these mean for you.
The French Traditional
French doors in Phoenix and elsewhere are a very classic design. What sets them apart are the glass panes that are the predominant feature across the doors. Since they swing open on hinges that are located on the outside, they can allow for a rather dramatic reveal of your patio especially for visitors.
French doors also bring in a lot of natural light, especially when flanked by picture windows. Renewal by Andersen of Phoenix offers French patio doors that come in a range of customizable design options that allow you to personalize the style of your French door to fit your tastes and design proclivities.
The Sliding Contemporary
A door’s method of operation can make a huge difference. Sliding contemporary doors in Scottsdale not only work differently, but they also exude a different kind of character—one that is more modern and slightly reserved. The latter comes from the fact that, unlike French patio doors, sliding doors can’t open their full length. Another thing that sets this design apart is that it doesn’t require a lot of space around the entryway to open. This allows you to have a more subtle setup, with the patio door being slightly obscured. Like the French patio door, however, this option still brings in a lot of light because of the abundance of glass panes.
Both options add a touch of beauty and unique functionality to your patios. Whether you go for the classic look and feel of the French traditional or the convenient modernity and subtlety of the sliding contemporary, Renewal by Andersen of Phoenix can guarantee that either one will enhance your home’s biggest social spaces.
