Slider Or?? Is French really Nicer?
Hello to all. I'm asking for design input from fellow members who maybe have done this type of remodeling.
There was a door leading to the patio where the X is pictured on the wall. Door was closed up to make room for new kitchen. The width between the arrows is 9 feet. Window is being removed because I would like to have a door where the existing window is. On the left of the picture you can see the new counter which will have counter height stools.
Options that I can see are:
- 8 ft slider which will fit into existing width
- French doors with sidelights- fits in existing width
- French doors - 6ft wide- no sidelights. One door would have to be opened for ventilation.
- French doors with one tall 60" casement next to them for nice ventilation. The casement would be the same width as each of the doors for a balanced look.
I realize my decision boils down purely to what I like. However when it comes to form over function or is it function over form? any help would be greatly appreciated.
