St. Louis Sliding Glass Doors

Sliding Doors Add More Style in Less Space

St. Louis is a city known for its architectural history, so it’s no surprise that there’s a diverse mix of home styles. In neighborhoods like the Gate District and Forest Park you can see a centuries-old Victorian house right next door to a modern or contemporary home. But no matter where your house falls on the street, a sliding glass door is a stylish upgrade with a flexible design.

With two large glass panels and a door that glides along a track within the frame, sliding glass doors are a popular addition as an entrance to a patio. Only one panel is operable and instead of folding or swinging open, the doors slide, opening up additional space for furniture or decor in your kitchen and outdoor living space.

Popular Local Trends & Styles

Sliding French Doors

rench patio doors offer a traditional elegance that appeals to owners of older homes. But many people still prefer a sliding door operation over a swinging door in that space. Wooden sliding glass doors look like French doors, especially if you add a traditional patio door handle or square grilles. Sliding French patio doors fit many classic home styles like Victorians or Tudors as well as more modern American Craftsman houses and bungalows.

Sliding Screen Doors*

In a city with a seasonal mosquito problem, screens are an important addition to your sliding glass door. Patio screen doors allow you to open up your home on a sunny St. Louis day without bringing in a host of insects along with the fresh air. Retractable screens, in particular, are popular in the area. A retractable screen door protects your entrance from bugs when you open up your home to a breeze and then rolls away into a self-storage system when not in use so you get clear, untinted, and undivided sunlight.

Large Sliding Patio Doors

The connection between indoor and outdoor spaces is a critical component of summertime entertaining. Homeowners in St. Louis prefer oversized sliding patio doors that create wider entrances for this high traffic area. When not in use, wide sliding glass doors create the appearance of a large glass wall that brings in more sunlight and makes the outside environment feel like a part of your interior decor. With minimalist, contemporary styles, sliding patio doors can appear nearly frameless and maximize the benefits of glass.

Sliding Glass Doors With Built-In-Blinds

Covering sliding doors with blinds or curtains can take away from the space-saving advantages. Between-the-glass blinds offer the privacy and sunlight control homeowners need without getting in the way. Built-in blinds are installed between two glass panels and operated without a long, dangling cord that could endanger pets and children. Since they’re permanently sealed inside the sliding glass door, they’re protected from dust and damage.

*Warning: Use caution when children or pets are around open windows and doors. Screens are not designed to retain children or pets.
