Curtains are more casual and homey, and are often made of washable fabrics. This makes many types of curtains family‐friendly and perfect for households with less formality and tighter budgets. One consideration to keep in mind is that unlined curtains will not block much light and are often used in conjunction with blinds if controlling light is a concern or if total privacy is necessary.
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.
Laminate flooring is made of synthetic materials and contains no natural wood products. For this reason, laminate flooring is extremely resistant to moisture. The finish of laminate flooring is plastic‐like and extremely durable. Laminate flooring is available in a wide range of colors and finishes that mimic wood flooring, tile, and stone. Laminate flooring is often called a "floating floor," as it does not require the use of glue or nails to adhere it to the subsurface. This is a good choice for areas that see an extremely high traffic volume or are susceptible to scratching or gouging for other reasons, such as pets.
PVC, often available in wood‐grain finish as well as white, PVC door frames vary from cheap and nasty that will probably be a nightmare to open and close, to metal‐reinforced, high quality systems. The better PVC bifolds have many of the qualities of aluminium bifolds, such as low maintenance and good performance ‐ but the frames are always wider, detracting from the potential view when doors are closed, and the profiles are also wider, reducing the access space when open.
