Open floor plans have long been a staple of many home remodeling projects. Today, this layout remains hugely popular, creating a need for windows, doors and other elements that help complement the freed-up space it provides. Large sliding doors lead the list of open layout features that homeowners are lining up to have.
Let our home remodeling experts at Renewal by Andersen® of Milwaukee give you some of the top reasons sliding doors are in this season.
Unlike most types of doors, sliding doors occupy very little floor space in its operation. Because of this, homeowners can make use of a little bit of extra space to place other items like a console table for main hallways, large bureaus for memorabilia in the living room or even some potted plants to breathe life in an otherwise boring corner.
For homes in warmer climates, large windows and doors allow more air to circulate the home, providing fresh and cool air to help improve your overall comfort. Moreover, the added glass area can brighten up a room better than a lighting fixture during the day. For homes with colder climates, good planning can help more of the sun’s heat enter your home, reducing the need to depend on your gas and electricity for warmth.
There’s a reason why sliding doors have been a favorite of both homeowners as well as windows contractor— design flexibility. Spice up a classic American Prairie with sliders that open up a cramped living room; blend entryways seamlessly with the muted aesthetics of postmodern design; or, create a unique transition between your indoors and outdoors with some sliding patio doors.
