If your house has a vintage look then you should go for a design that is made of wood and is similar to the conventional French doors. The best way to select the right one is to gauge the door space, where you plan to install it. In case of a smaller length and breadth, use a design that has less glass and transparency. This way it will look more similar to normal doors, but will have the charm of exterior French patio doors. In case you have a good considerable length and breadth, use the design which has the maximum glass and transparency.
Sliding doors with patios is an up coming convention. You will find that many such houses have an aluminum sliding door that leads out to the patio. They have frames that are made of metal and the remaining part is glass. The most logical solution to prevent the infiltration of sun's rays is to use fabric or metallic window blinds. However, such blinds are not exactly foolproof and often lead to the room heating up. Another solution is the use of shaded glass that prevents the entry of sun's rays. But, the best solution is to use doors with built-in blinds which are made up of fiber and are attached with the help of small locks directly onto it. Such blinds basically prevent the penetration of light and heat into the room. Another similar design is where fabric is fitted right onto the glass. In tropical counties, many people have ingeniously designed organic ones that can be kept a bit moist by a small water system. Though this system sounds very complex and unrealistic, it is a catch, and keeps the room cool. Some patio doors also have blinds that are made up of metal and are permanently attached to the door. However, they do not prove to be helpful as they tend to conduct the heat into the room.
Stain, on the other hand, is absorbed by the concrete surface. This makes it less prone to wear and tear in comparison to concrete paint. It also maintains the texture of concrete making it less hazardous. It is definitely longer lasting and requires lesser maintenance than concrete paint. On the downside, staining is a relatively expensive procedure and is best done by hiring a professional. Also, the color options are more limited in this type of treatment.
