The homeowners wanted their newly redesigned kitchen and dining room to showcase the beautiful view from their classic home, so designers used glass paneled accordion style doors to separate the indoor dining room from the outdoor patio space. These doors can easily be pulled back to allow access to the patio, creating a beautiful, functional indoor-outdoor space for the family.
Modern and comfortable, this living room features a cozy seating area warmed by long narrow fireplace. On warmer days and nights, an accordion glass door folds back to connect the space to a patio with a large dining table.
Folding glass doors are ideal for opening an interior space to an outdoor living area — creating flow between a living room and deck, for example. “A folding system allows the panels to neatly fold accordion-style and remain 90 degrees to the opening for a wide-open, unobstructed view,” say the pros at LaCantina Doors.
Accordion glass doors retract to open up the living room to a covered porch for true indoor-outdoor living. Contemporary outdoor furniture offers comfortable, sleek seating to watch the sunset and enjoy meals outside.
An accordion-style sliding door makes this galley kitchen — what would normally be a narrow kitchen — seem spacious. The walnut used in the cabinets, floors and island is "forest free" and harvested mostly from fallen trees.
Accordion glass doors open to turn this contemporary dining room into a true indoor-outdoor space. A long espresso dining table has a modern glass inset, and custom upholstered Parsons chairs feature a beachy stripe. The modern chandelier is nearly as spectacular as the ocean view.
Large accordion-style glass doors open up to the patio from this bright and airy living room. Ultra-minimalist yet tastefully decorated in neutral tones, the spacious room boasts outstanding views of Lake Wakatipu and the surrounding mountains.
The former family room was dark and bland. Now, the room has fresh white paneling that bounces sunlight around the space and glass doors that fold up, accordion style, to join the interior with spacious outdoor areas.
This long, galley-style kitchen is given extra space with an 18-foot-long accordion-style folding glass door. This photo was actually taken outside in the side yard thanks to the open door. The vent hood could not be accommodated in the stone wall, so an island vent hood was used despite the range being on the wall.
