Decorative hardware is meant to be a decor element and allows you to add more interest with pieces like finials, colored rods and large, decorative brackets. Just as with custom draperies, the sky is the limit when it comes to decorative hardware. This is another chance to pick up on a theme in the room or to add a metallic touch. Coordinating rings, rods, finials and holdbacks can really tie together an overall look when used properly. Even the options that come in home stores have become much more wide ranging.
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.
