Large Sliding Glass Doors
The large sliding glass doors, such as lift-slide, and its smaller cousin, the tilt-slide, have several advantages over traditional swing doors. Initially, they free up limited floor space and allow maximum use of your environment. We all are aware that swing doors deprive us of valuable floor space, but they also greatly limit the placement of furniture and interfere with the natural mobility patterns within your home. So, now imagine that same space, but with our large sliding glass doors. You will be able to occupy every last portion of your floor or exterior deck or patio, accommodate a larger number of guests with greater ease and enhance the movement throughout your home.
Another advantage of large sliding glass doors is the rich increase in natural sun lighting that will bath the interior elements within your home. Everything will have a sharper lustre and you will feel more cheerful and buoyant. Plus, they simply look great.
And for those that want to save floor space and wall space, consider the option to have your large sliding glass doors configured as a pocket door that slides into a wall cavity. Pocket doors represent an additional expense but allow the door to be completely hidden away when opened and maintain substantial wall space if the aesthetics of your home require it.
In any case, consider the advice from interior decorators or other specialists when considering large sliding glass doors. Professional advisors may present options and layout considerations based on past experiences which you may not have considered. They will often offer a delightful balance of fashion, space utilization and functionality based on the size and configuration of your home. The extra space savings and more natural layout will be greatly appreciated.
Large Bifold Doors
Simply their name says it all; they are large doors that fold into themselves in such a way that the resulting free space is almost as large as the overall door size.
Large bifold doors present a picture-perfect balance of functionality, design and aesthetics. They offer dramatic views, make connections to the outside world and present a commanding way to establish movement between the inside and outside of your home. The expanse of the glass of large bifold doors is ideal for flooding the inside with natural light but is also well known to seamlessly disappear to create vast openings to the exterior for your natural enjoyment. The sleek lines and continuous design are also a favourite for blending into other elements of an overall design concept.
For all large bifold doors, Hawkeye Windows offers a vast selection of screen types, glass, colors, materials and security options.
Large French Doors
The Large French Door design will give your house a more welcoming style than a traditional door design. They operate as conventional doors but open fully with no center post. They are great for moving large items, like pianos and sectional sofas into a home but also work naturally as a standard entry door for the front or back of a home. Large French Doors also come with a more traditional look and more glass lite options to balance other design styles of your home.
Do you dare to join the large doors club?
We hope so, they are an excellent way to give a twist to the decorative design of your home. No matter the style of your house, there are doors for all tastes and all houses. You just have to be encouraged to decide to find the right door for you.
Different types of large doors for patio:
Although they may vary based on style and function, large doors from Hawkeye Windows are created with quite similar materials. Therefore, the different types of large doors for exterior and interior will depend on the aforementioned variables.
The choice in terms of materials for a large door is one of the most complex decisions. Opting for a composite, aluminium or fiberglass base material will be better both from the point of view of the useful life of the door, its maintenance requirements and for entrance security to protected areas.
In that sense, aluminum becomes the best possible option. Hard, resistant, with hardly any maintenance measures, and, above all, with a wide range of customization and permanent color possibilities.
So much so, that people who want wooden doors will often clad the exterior with extruded aluminium. The natural beauty of wood is prominent on the interior but protected on the exterior against the harsh aspects of the elements.
Other options include glass types, security add-ons, screen considerations, swing arrangments and sidelite configurations. Hawkeye Windows also offers a wide variety of wood types and finishing options for all the large doors products.
Most of the large doors are built-in to facilitate their opening and not create inconvenience when they are open. This structure, furthermore, may or may not be automated. The decision generally has more to do with the client’s budget than with other types of reasons, but the truth is that the high demand for motorized doors makes the price increasingly competitive.
