Adding or replacing patio doors in your home can come with a lot of choices. From color to material type or product line, there are a lot of options to consider. Among these options is the crucial decision of whether you go with a hinged or sliding patio door. Both are great options and offer their own unique benefits, but when you boil it down there is one that will work best with your home and style.
Wondering which option is right for your home? Here’s a bit more information to help you choose whether you should purchase a hinged or sliding patio door.
Sliding Patio Doors:
- If room is tight, a sliding patio door is most likely the best door given that they don’t require room to swing open

- Their large glass panels allow for the most natural light

- Pella Sliding Doors are equipped with a foot bolt lock to open the door about three inches to allow for ventilation.
Hinged Patio Doors:
- Give you a bigger opening for more foot traffic and allow for furniture to pass through easily
- Draw the eyes outdoors because of their intricate accents
- Have a low threshold to make coming and going easier
- Provide a more classic look
