Buyer’s guide to sliding doors

If you’re keen to create a seamless link between your home’s indoor and outdoor spaces, then installing a run of sliding doors could be your best bet, says Charley Ward
This anthracite grey aluminium slider, by ID-Systems, has colour-matched ironmongery that ties in with the property’s internal fittings, like the light switches
These aluminium framed sliding doors by Kloeber provide some modern contrast to this home’s traditional oak framing

After losing favour to their bifold counterparts in the early 2000s, modern updates to the sliding door – which allow for exceptionally slim sightlines – have seen them regaining popularity in recent years. Where bifolds have glazing broken up by multiple frames to allow them to fold shut, sliders have fewer but wider glass panes. This can bring in more coveted natural brightness to your home and allow for larger unbroken vistas.
