The magical sliding screen for inside/outside Sliding screens are a great way to open rooms onto other rooms, not only doubling the size of the space but in the case of this house, bringing the outside in. This small side courtyard is situated adjacent to a hallway that acts as a thoroughfare, however, when the sliding doors are open, an extra internal room is created. The open ceiling acts as a large skylight allowing the outdoor elements such as greenery, sun and the moonlight to enter. The sliding glass doors fold back onto each other and stack neatly on one wall allowing the full space to be used.Tip: This flexible space is successful because the floor level of the courtyard is the same as that of the inside of the house, allowing the furniture placement to overlap without a step.Take a look at these 5 reasons to get internal sliding doors
