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.
As in nature, the rules of design, not to be confused with personal taste, follow laws that have universal application, not because certain groups of people like architects, artists and fashion designers have decreed what's "in" and what's "out", but rather because of the known effect certain stimuli have on the human brain. A garden design that is unbalanced for instance will make people feel uncomfortable, as will one that is confused and unclear, due to the human craving to understand what's going on. Plants that are not in scale with the objects and spaces surrounding them, will feel out of place, while a sense of disharmony is liable to ensue from flower bed that is a "riot" of color. Why call bad taste nature? Why not call it bad taste!
