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.
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.
Light, are you in need of more light but are not interested in installing more windows and lights? A glass panelled front door could do the trick for you. Glass panels also have many beautiful designs that give any house an elegant appearance.
Types of Kitchen Cabinets, when selecting your kitchen cabinets, you should definitely know the difference between the two major types: face frame and frameless. Traditionally, cabinet doorstyles are face‐frame which basically means that there is a solid wood frame between the cabinet doors which is also very important element for the cabinet's support. In frameless cabinets, the door hinges are directly on the sides of the kitchen cabinet's box and overlay the edges of the cabinet with hardly any reveal.
