Time‐travelling back a few years, the best option for doors between house and garden were central‐opening double doors (French doors) which are still popular today. Fifty‐ish years ago, sliding patio doors enabled us to embrace more light in the home. Typically, these comprised two panes of glass that could slide left or right within side‐by‐side parallel grooves so that, when closed, natural light and a good view could be enjoyed. To open, one door would slide to overlap with the other door so that the total width of the opening was similar to that of French doors. Another down‐side of sliding doors is that they all too often became 'sticking' doors which became worse with the introduction of double glazing, doubling the weight of the doors and reducing the glass to frame ratio.
The choices of lining and interlining, which is a piece of fabric that goes between the main textile and the lining, can enhance insulation and room darkening properties. Lining also plays an important role on giving many types of curtains and drapes their body and fullness when they hang on the window. How long should curtains be? Before heading to the store, decide how far above the window you want to mount the curtains and whether you want them to pool on the floor or hang above it. Six inches above the window frame is a typical place to mount the curtains, it is possible to make a room look taller or more dramatic by installing them farther above the window frame.
