Sliding doors can enhance the aesthetics of a building, and augment the airflow and the extent of natural light in an indoor environment to a significant extent as well. This article also provides a few tips on decorating such doors.


Sliding doors have become extremely popular today, especially the ones made up of uPVC. These doors are ideally made up of two (or more) sashes that slide horizontally, either left or right, on tracks. Such doors can be made taller and wider with the addition of sashes. Good quality uPVC sliding doors feature multi-chamber system that increases sound and heat insulation, and have locking systems that account for enhanced security.  
There are a number of advantages of installing uPVC sliding doors at a home. Here are some of them:
· Energy efficiency: Sliding doors are quite efficient insulators, especially their uPVC variants.  They help in making sure that a house stays cooler in the summer and warm in the winter.  Sliding doors also have a good sealing, and hence are quite energy efficient. They assist the air-conditioning unit installed to maintain the desired temperature in a room, thereby resulting in lower electricity expenses.
· Space savings: Sliding doors operate without hinges. They slide on a track instead of swinging on hinges. Hence, they do not require any extra swinging space like the traditional doors.
· Light and ventilation: Sliding doors let the optimal amount of natural light and air come inside the room, thereby keeping them comfortable and well-ventilated.
Tips for decorating sliding doors
In addition to looking extremely elegant and sophisticated, sliding doors also enable people to save space in a room. To enhance the beauty of these doors, people can choose to hang curtains on it. Here are a few decorating tips for sliding door designs that people can follow to enhance their appearance :  
· Hang a thin metal rod close to the ceiling in order to maintain a uniform and simple appearance.  Long curtains can easily cover the whole wall, and not just the sliding doors.
· Diverse windows of a room would need distinguished types of curtains. While sliding doors featured in the bedroom would require dark and heavy curtains to maintain a level of privacy inside the room, in the living room, people should opt to put brightly coloured and light curtains to ensure that adequate natural light is able to get inside the space.
· Try to match the colour of the curtains with the décor and palette theme of the room, so that they look absolutely impeccable.  
· A valance can be added to the doors to hide the curtain fittings. Homeowners can opt for a valance that has a distinct wooden appearance, so as to add a rustic look to the room.
· The curtain rod should be installed high up on the ceiling so that the curtains can easily cover the wall from the top to bottom. This would be a particularly nice option for bedrooms, where it is important for the décor to look absolutely harmonious.
· In addition to curtains, people can choose to install blinds to enhance the look of the doors.
The above-mentioned decorating tips for sliding door designs can help homeowners to ensure that their rooms look extremely attractive. By installing uPVC sliding doors at their home and beautifully decorating it, homeowners can enhance both the functionality and appearance of their rooms.

Say NO to wood and welcome uPVC
Over its lifetime, a single tree absorbs 268 kg of gas emissions. But gases that where once retained by a tree are immediately released into the atmosphere when it is cut down, increasing our carbon footprint. According to data from a global satellite survey, the world loses more than one football pitch of forest each second. The loss of forest cover recorded in just one year alone was estimated to be in excess of 29.4 million hectares! The scale of this destruction poses a grave threat to tackling climate change, increases the rate of massive decline in wildlife and multiplies incidents of forest fires exponentially. With deforestation taking place at such massive a scale, using timber for windows and doors needs to be seen as a crime against future generations, not just against nature. But unfortunately, wood still continues to be a popular choice for windows and doors. Wood Requires Constant Maintenance Wooden windows and doors need high maintenance and proper care for ensuring longevity and durability. As wood is an organic and porous material, it quickly becomes a victim of humidity and the elements. Wooden windows and doors are subject to rot and insect infestation. There are other problems that make wooden windows and doors unsuitable. They are prone to warping that often occurs due to repeated exposure to moisture and sunlight. Wood also shrinks and expands dramatically in response to constant changes in weather. Finally, wood is highly susceptible to damage or leaks. There is also a huge problem in waterproofing wooden windows. On top of all these shortcomings, the unit cost of wooden window is way more costly than a uPVC windows. More Pluses Than Minuses Keeping the above mentioned negative factors in mind, it really is not a good idea to opt for wooden windows and doors. Recommend switching to Ökotech uPVC Window & Door Systems instead. They not only save trees and preserve forests, but also increase the value of your property.

5 signs you need new Windows
While we enjoy our indoor comforts, windows are our connection with the outside world. They provide us with light, ventilation, and most importantly, gorgeous views of the great outdoors! Since they’re such an integral part of any space, it’s important that they are beautiful, durable, and easy to maintain. Most people just fit and forget their windows, and while that is the hassle-free luxury you get with high-quality uPVC windows, it is advisable to check for a few signs that will let you know if it’s time to change them. Many older structures still have window frames made of traditional materials like wood or aluminium. These materials are at a massive disadvantage when compared to the new generation of uPVC windows. So how do you decide if it’s time for new windows? Look for these tell-tale signs: Water seepage – This is a common problem, especially in coastal areas or regions with high rainfall. If not looked into and fixed promptly it can negatively impact the whole structural integrity of a building, as it weakens the walls, and eventually, the pillars. If you are looking for uPVC windows in Vizag or other coastal cities, choose Aparna Venster. The windows are completely water resistant and remain totally leak proof even in strong tropical rains. Rattling sound – This means that your window frame has either shrunk or eroded over time, thus creating gaps which will get worse over time, letting in water, insects and moisture. It also reduces the insulation from heat and also poses a security threat as the frame is weakened and can be easily forced open. High quality uPVC windows by Aparna Venster are made with the best raw materials, with world-class German technology, under strict quality guidelines. They are extremely durable and will not get deformed in any way, even after years of use. Fading / warping / rotting – Every day we make great efforts to keep our spaces clean, beautiful and inviting. Issues like fading, warping and rotting of the windows spoil the aesthetic of a space and put to waste all other attempts to make a space look good. Choose from different types of uPVC windows that are lead-free, environment-friendly, and meet the greenline norms of European companies. Also, saline water has no effect on these high-quality windows, which means there’s no chance of erosion.
