Design Trend Spotlight: Folding Patio Doors

by reddoor on December 26, 2012

Folding patio doors and multi slide doors open your home to the outdoor room. One of the biggest trends in home design ideas is actually found outside of the home. The idea of the outdoor room used to be as simple as a covered patio, has since become an extra living space that homeowners love to take advantage of. As an extension of the home, outdoor rooms include amenities like cooking appliances, outdoor bars, fireplaces, and furniture for dining and lounging. What really makes the indoor/outdoor lifestyle a modern phenomenon in home décor is the point of connection:  wide open, disappearing walls that are only possible with the inclusion of a folding patio door.

A new take on the traditional glass patio door, these contemporary glass-wall systems are composed of floor-to-ceiling panels that slide on overhead tracks. They can fold open to create a seamless, open-air connection to the outdoors, and lock together to form a secure, transparent wall that meets stringent requirements for air infiltration, water penetration, structural performance, and forced entry.

The Vanishing Wall at Shea’s Veranda at Glenwood

Shea Homes has been designing with folding patio doors for years, but the most dramatic example to date may be found at Veranda at Glenwood, where the vanishing-wall concept is fully integrated into each of the house plans to ensure a dynamic indoor-outdoor connection. This distinctive design feature goes perfectly with the overall lifestyle at Glenwood, a resort-inspired community surrounded by public parks, the links of the Aliso Viejo Country Club, and majestic views of the Saddleback Mountains.

At Veranda, Shea Homes uses folding glass patio doors by Western Window Systems, a respected brand distinguished by craftsmanship and a capacity for greater widths and heights — precisely the traits necessary to create one of the most exciting new home communities in Southern California.
