French or Sliding Patio Doors: Which Is Right For You?

Investing in new patio doors is a great way to add beauty, functionality, and value to your Cincinnati home. You’ll have to choose between two styles—the classic French and the more modern sliding patio doors.

French or Sliding Patio Doors

Read on as Renewal by Andersen® of Cincinnati guides you through your sliding patio door decision.

Door Style and Home’s Architectural Design

When installing any home hardware, you need to consider whether the product will complement the overall architectural style of your home. French patio doors, for example, feature a “classic” design that makes them well suited for traditional homes.

Sliding patio doors, on the other hand, have a sleek, minimalist design with understated frills. This style is ideal if you have a more modern-style home.

Door Design and Floor Space

You should also consider the floor and wall space your new patio door will occupy. Sliding patio doors take up more wall space but less room space than French patio doors. So if the room where the door will be placed is small, but you can devote substantial wall space to it, sliding doors will be your best bet. French patio doors swing open, which means they require more floor space, but less wall space. As such, they tend to work better in larger rooms.
