Sliding Screen Doors

interior sliding screen doors from This Old House via AtticmagEnjoy mild spring days with sliding screen doors that stay out of the way when not in use.

Our forsythia is blooming — an official sign that spring is just around the corner.  I even opened a sunroom window this week so the cats could get some fresh air. How nice it be to open our French doors allowing in the soft breeze without letting our cats escape. A pair of sliding screen doors would be perfect.  Although this pair is not in the same frame as exterior sliding barn doors, the principle is the same. These doors move laterally and can disappear against the walls when not in service. For these doors, the black wrought iron barn door style hardware is hidden by trim for a clean look. Interior barn door hardware is often exposed and part of the design. I like how the separation of the screens and exterior doors create an intimate feel. This definitely is an idea I’ll be tucking away for the future.

    Most screen doors are a design liability! ( and cats too, come to that…)

    Those are GREAT. I wish I’d known of this idea before we built…Not that we’d have the room, for sure, but in the summer we just have our doors open all the time. Thankfully we’re not in a really buggy area.

    I seriously love this idea. I wonder if I can get my husband to participate in adding this to our pool door. It’s fabulous!

    I LOVE barn-door sliding door set-ups. I’ve not seen that particular type (hardware hidden by trim), but I love it, too!
