Patio Door Styles

Space & Light

If your home design includes either a garden or balcony feature, then by choosing from a wide range of available patio doors, you can really make the most of the space - both inside and out.

Whatever the unique features of your home, patio doors present many options that can introduce natural light and tie together indoor and outdoor space. By 'opening up' one of the walls in your home, you also create a wider field of vision, giving the impression of greater space.

Type - swinging, sliding, folding

There are different kinds of timber patio doors to suit any needs. For instance, if you want to add a subtle touch of elegance to your patio or garden, then doors that swing outward or inward in our French patio door range are the classic option.

Perhaps you would prefer not to worry about doors bumping against walls or furniture. In that case, sliding patio doors that open horizontally let you enjoy the view - and contemporary design - without worry.

If you want to blend the inside and out within your home, there's no better way than to install folding patio doors. By folding the doors together in a concertina pattern, you essentially gain a removable wall - for the ultimate feeling of freedom.

Design

There is, of course, any number of possibilities when selecting a patio door, however there are one or two points worth keeping in mind.

Doors with large glass panels increase the amount of light that enters your home, as well as affording a greater view of your patio or garden. On the other hand, more traditional, smaller windows give you added privacy.

Size may limit which patio doors will fit your project so measure up first before you choose your style.

Material choice is also important. Oak and natural wood is still very much on-trend and homeowners recognise how adding wooden patio doors can increase a home's value and provide a more distinctive appearance. 

JELD-WEN offers a wide range of timber patio doors which are complemented by a range of windows and single doors to give you a truly co-ordinated look.
