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.
During celebrations in your patio, you do not have to worry about swift access to your house's interior since you can just leave the patio sliding door fully open. And the great thing is that it would not eat needed space like a conventional door. Let us say that your party is packed and you need to seat one more guess but the remaining vacant spot is located near the doorway. That will be a huge problem if you have a conventional entry door that you have to push and pull to open. For one thing, the guest might get hit by the door when someone pulls or push at the door vigorously. In contrast, you do not have to worry about that dilemma if you have a patio sliding door.
