A Few Words About the Doors (and I don’t mean Jim Morrison)

Yippeee! Summer is here! Although it’s not as though summertime starts during a particular month in Tucson, AZ! We know the weather here is always awesome! But for the sake of argument, more people will be spending time outdoors in the summer. So whether you’re entertaining, or just enjoying the great weather with your own family, adding patio doors to your home is a great way to extend your home’s living area outside.

Two is the Magic Number

By far one of the most popular types of patio doors in Tucson is two-panel sliding patio doors. As the name implies, these doors have two door panels, made largely of glass. One door is operable (sliding) and the other one is stationary. You can choose which panel you wish to be the operable one. You can get sliding doors for your Tucson home that are either contemporary or more traditional, depending on the style of your home.

Three is Not a Bad Number Either

With three-panel sliding patio doors, one door panel is operable and the other two are fixed. Like two-panel patio doors, you can choose which panel is operable. If you choose the middle panel, you can also decide which way it will slide. It is important to note that while three panel patio doors give you more viewing area than two-panel doors, the space that opens up to the outdoors will be about the same in both two-panel and three-panel doors.

Creating outdoor living spaces in Tucson remains a popular choice. So consider these simple space-saving techniques:

When space is tight, consider a pocket door that slides away into the wall when open.
To free up wall space, try a dual-purpose door, such a Mirror Door. Reflective surfaces can also make a room look larger.

To extend a room beyond its walls, add a Bay or Bow Window.
To bring outside indoors, add a greenhouse to any room. They’re perfect for herb gardens over the kitchen sink.
