Although some believe open plan living has ‘had its day’, the majority of architects, developers and installers still see it as the ‘go to’ option in most interior layouts throughout Wolverhampton, the Midlands, and beyond.

Is open plan a good idea?

Open plan interior design makes the most of the space in a variety of property styles. Smaller, darker properties tend to benefit the most, thanks to the way open plan living adds essential natural light to create the sense of more space with minimal effort.

Modern patio door replacements are perfect for creating that signature open-plan ambience. With this in mind, get inspired by these three modern patio door ideas.

Lift and slide patios

Combining slim sightlines and swathes of floor-to-ceiling glazing, the way lift and slide doors effortlessly glide open with the simple touch of a button makes them ideal for open-plan residences. Allowing for the largest entranceways with the fewest panels possible, our industry-leading RAUM Lift and Slide Doors can reach impressive heights of up to 2700mm. With a striking open-corner option designed to invite nature inside, nothing compares to the way our lift and slide patio doors smoothly slide back to transform gloomy corners into beautiful spaces that can be enjoyed all year round.

Grey aluminium bifold doors

Versatile, timeless, and warming, neutral tones like white, cream, or light grey are perfect for airy, open-plan homes. Enlarging the space and providing easier access to the outside and other rooms, grey aluminium bifolds provide a stylish flourish whilst complementing window coverings and existing furniture. Deeper greys (such as Anthracite Grey) deliver a striking contrast within subtle-toned spaces, whilst lighter shades of grey (like Agate Grey) provide more of a delicate, pastel effect; perfect for enhancing heritage stylings that need to be preserved rather than detracted from.

Aluminium sliding glass door designs

The large, illuminating glazed panels of modern sliding patio doors (like ours!) seamlessly unite your home and garden to take pleasure from the ever-popular open plan living craze. When it comes to open plan living, the sleek sightlines of aluminium are often preferred to thicker door materials such as timber and uPVC, providing more glass and less frame. To create the best open plan living spaces, aluminium sliding patio door arrangements worth considering include Art Deco-inspired steel replica sliding doors and elegant open corner aluminium sliding doors.
