Why Patio Doors are Amazing

Patio doors are a great way to connect the inside of your home to the outside. While these doors come in a variety of sizes and styles, our Carolina windows and doors experts recommend choosing one that slides. Sliding doors are not only beautiful, but they can also provide valuable benefits such as:


Not everyone has a huge kitchen, living room, or bedroom that can accommodate French-style patio doors. With a sliding door, you won’t have to worry about the room it takes up when you open it. Sliding doors are compact and since they slide horizontally along a track, you’ll get more usable space that you can use for furniture, decor, and more.


The great thing about sliding patio doors is that they’re easy to use. Instead of figuring out which way to turn a handle and worrying about it getting stuck, you simply have to push the door and it will glide open. This makes it easy for people of all ages to use.


Other popular patio door styles like French doors may feature glass, but they often have criss-crossing grids that can obstruct your view. Sliding doors, on the other hand, feature one large pane of uninterrupted glass, which gives you a clear view to your back yard. This can come in very handy if you have children or pets and want to keep an eye on them. On another note, it can simply give you a nice, picturesque view from your kitchen, living room, or bedroom.

Natural Light

At our Carolina windows and doors company, we love natural light, and if you’re looking for a way to add more to your room, a sliding patio door is the perfect way to do it. With so much glass, it’ll be like having a large window that can let the sunshine in. And best of all, you can fit your door with curtains or blinds for privacy.


Have you ever wished you had more of a breeze in your room? With a sliding patio door, you can easily create more fresh air and ventilation for your home. And because it slides horizontally, you won’t have to worry about it blowing open or closed when the wind hits it.
