from our project files: 7 awesome photos of patio doors

June 21, 2019

Are you ready to replace your old, drafty, stuck patio door?  To help you out, we’ve gone through our project files to narrow down our Top 7 awesome photos of patio doors to give you some inspiration. Take a look and let us know what you think.

1. Black Double Sliding Doors with SDL grilles


We worked with designer Erin Kleinberg on this beautiful earth-toned living room. Adding Simulated Divided Lites (SDL) colonial grilles to her modern sliding glass patio door, gave it a whole new look.  SDL grilles are placed permanently on the exterior and interior of the glass.  Unlike True Dividing Lights (TDL) which involves many individual glass panes, SDL utilizes 1 single pane of glass which increases the doors’ energy efficiency.

2. Black Rail and Stile French Doors with SDL grilles


We worked with interior designer Tracy Kundell on this project, and she chose three black rail and stile french doors with SDL grilles. What are rail and stile doors? They consist of horizontal members knows as rails and vertical members of the frame called stiles.  The door has no solid panel but instead fills the space with glass allowing in more light.

3. White Interior French DoorsWhite French Doors - Metal Clad Wood

Instead of having one big sliding door, designer Allison Willson chose double glass french doors. The doors are solid douglas fir on the interior and metal clad on the exterior (see # 4 for exterior).  The big windows beside the door allow for more light to flow into this bright and airy living room.

4. Black Exterior French Doors


Did you know you can paint the interior and exterior of your patio doors in different colours? This photo is the exterior view of the white interior french doors above.  There are lots of options when it comes to doors and having different colours for the interior and exterior is one of them.

5. Modern Black Rail + Stile French Doors

Modern design is very popular and with this rail and stile french door with SDL grilles is the perfect example.  The homeowner opted for 1 single door with two windows on each side to allow for an ample amount of light into their kitchen and a great view into their backyard.

6. Traditional French Doors
