That solution is patio doors with built in blinds. While having blinds put over patio doors is nothing new having them built directly into the doors themselves is a modern invention. The convenience of blinds included with the door can save you a lot of time and money from searching high and low for the right set of blinds that will fit your doors. You can install them yourself or have a professional do this for you. First though youll need to do some research on what type of doors will fit best in your home.
Originally patio doors were all of the French Door variety; that is a pair of doors that are hinged at the sides and open from the middle each door pivoting in- or out-wards. French doors are still popular especially with builders of new homes as they are comparatively cheap and easy to accommodate in place of windows and offer an alternative evacuation route for families especially for elderly or disabled people to meet improved fire safety requirements.
Most people are familiar with the sliding glass patio doors. Usually this is two doors with big open space windows that allow a lot of light into the home. The doors use a sliding track system that has little round discs sitting inside a mechanism providing traction. Sliding glass doors made out of wood can be plain or very dramatic in design. It really depends on what you envision for your particular home decor.
Bi Folding doors were launched around the turn of the century; they can be installed in place of French doors where both doors are hinged to fold as they open together to one side. Bi folding doors can also span an opening to around 7 metres wide depending on the frame chosen. A master door can be placed amongst the doors at the ends or in the middle wherever the opening is required; this door is a standard (pivot) opening door which enables the other doors to be pushed to the side or sides of the aperture resulting in a sliding-folding action concertina-style to maximise the width of the opening between home and garden or conservatory.
