Folding doors are more popular than ever
In the last three months alone, purchases of folding doors have spiked 99%, according to Klarna.
This trend makes sense, as people integrate their indoor and outdoor spaces, says Joy Aumann, a licensed real estate agent and the founder of California’s Luxury SoCal Realty.
“Folding doors allow a seamless transition from inside the house to outside, creating a beautiful and functional space that feels larger and more open, Aumann says.
When selecting a folding door, keep your specific climate and needs in mind, advises Jason Farr, an interior designer and the founder of Aviara Pavers, a design and outdoor living space headquartered in San Diego, CA.
“Different materials can offer you year-round energy efficiency and thermal performance, depending on where your home is situated,” Farr says, explaining that folding patio door sets come in a variety of materials and finishes, including premium aluminum, wood, or vinyl. “You can find the style and material that go well with your home’s design, while selecting finish options that go well with your interior and external color scheme.”
An array of folding door options is available at the Home Depot, starting at around $1,999.
