Folding or sliding doors for your slice of summer

It may not feel like it in some corners of the country, but Spring is now just around the corner. Before you know it the days will be longer, the sun warmer and we’ll all be heading outside to spend some well-earned time in the garden. If you really want to make the most of the brief British Summer, replacing your existing patio doors with new folding or sliding doors could be the solution. Helping to bring the outside in, flood your home with light and give your interior the wow factor, a new set of doors could be just what the architect ordered.

Bringing the outside in

Like My Homebuilding says “The desire to ‘bring the outside in’ is a bit of a cliché these days, but there are few self-builders and renovators who don’t want the extra light, as well as connection with a patio or garden, that glazed doors bring.” Though it may now be a standard of most home improvement shows, connecting your garden with your living space really will make your home a more enjoyable place to be, especially in the summer months.

Great for socialising

In the UK, we really love the sunshine. In fact most of us will throw the doors open wide and sit out in the garden in just the mildest of Spring temperatures. When the weather really heats up, there are few things Brits love more than a bit of outdoor socialising. Folding and sliding doors make hosting outdoor events easy. Offering easy access to your garden, and allowing less hardy guests to shelter in the warmth of your interior, patio doors that open wide will transform the way you use your home and garden.

Letting in the light

As well as enhancing your outside space, a new set of glazed doors will help to make your home’s interior even more stylish. Flooding the space with light and making it feel bigger, more spacious and more relaxing, your new doors will have a huge impact on the look and the feel of your living space.

Al fresco dining

If you love eating outside whenever the weather will allow, folding and sliding doors will make a great addition to your home. As they open wide it will be a lot easier for you to carry plates, food and drink from the kitchen to the outside table. If you’ve got a BBQ on the go and are carting marinated meat and veg backwards and forwards, you’ll really notice the difference your new doors make.

With summer still a few months away, now’s the perfect time to get your new doors installed. Give us a call to find out more about the different options available.
