SLIDING GLASS DOORS
What is the one drawback of windows? Normally, that you can’t walk through them. That is why they have to be elevated to eyesight level. This means that windows are restricted to viewing portals or air spaces. What is a similar drawback of doors? You can’t see them. Why is this a problem? It would always be a nice thing to see who is approaching. There is a modern first world anxiety build around not wanting to answer the door to a mystery knocker. It solves that problem. Who would have thought that there was a solution that could merge these two problematic household appliances into one super-feature that solves both problems whilst creating a portal that combines the best of two worlds?
Well, there is another bit of good news. It is the wonderful, the mythical sliding glass door. Some people refer to them as French doors, but that normally doesn’t involve the sliding feature. No, these beauties are one of a kind and whatever place you live in, they make a stylish and practical addition to the home that adds a new element to your life as well.

Well, put simply, they make you spend more time outside. They provide an impetus to get out in amongst the greenery, where the world feels very different. It seems like they shouldn’t because normally all you have to do is find the key and open the door. But, you would be surprised about how enticing a walk in nature looks if you are constantly looking at it through a great window feature.
