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.
Another snag with a standard entry patio door is that it takes a lot of space. And space does matter during parties with large numbers of guests. Sometimes, you wish that you can just wrench that door to end the tiresome pushing and pulling and free more space for your guests. If you are tired of going through such inconvenience, then you can just replace your standard entry door with a patio sliding door.
