A guide to patio door options

Posted on 22.07.2021

Patio doors are the perfect way to bring floods of natural light into your home and create a clear connection to your outdoor living space, whilst making the most of your view. Bowalker Doors offer a range of patio door options, giving you the chance to pick the perfect style for your home. Selecting the right patio door can be a difficult decision as there are many different styles, so we have made the decision easier for you, by explaining what each of our patio door options offer.

What are patio doors?

Patio doors, also known as sliding doors, are made up of large glass panels that slide behind each other. Letting in floods of natural light, they create an open, airy space in your home. Aesthetically, they look great on any property that has a large exterior wall. From 1930s houses to new builds, a patio door can be implemented to open up your home. Patio or siding doors can be mounted either on top of a track or be suspended from a track above, allowing the panes of glass to completely disappear for the ultimate indoor to outdoor experience.
