Small Apartment Balcony Ideas. Spring is coming and even an outdoor smaller space like a balcony can be adapted and furnished according to your taste. Organize and optimize the available space. Obviously, the first thing to do before proceeding with any decision is to estimate the space that you have actually available. Check out these tips before setting up your balcony garden.
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.
When you measure for curtains, make sure that you measure from the top of the window to the floor, then add the distance above the window to the mount. You will also need to add length if you want the curtains or drapes to puddle in the floor. Designers say that you should add two or three inches for a more tailored puddling, but can add more for a luxurious pool of fabric on the floor.
Moving forward to the next innovation enter the bi‐folding door: a combination of hinged doors that open in concertina style. Often called folding‐sliding doors, bi‐folds have various mechanisms that allow one side of the door panels to be guided along top and bottom runners while the remainder of each door panel is pushed out, together with its hinge‐attached partner, and so on for as many door panels that are connected.
