Creating access to a new outdoor balcony, architect Mary Cerrone replaced the window with a full-pane glass door. The challenge of a narrow thoroughfare was overcome by implementing a sliding screen, which when opened slides into a pocket behind the refrigerator.
By placing a focal point of bright color in the doorway, the room gains a feeling of greater depth, while the dying process of the wood mirrors that of the cabinetry.

These creative homeowners found a solution by using a sliding screen door that tucks into a pocket behind the refrigerator when open. The barn-style hardware and cheery red paint job up the charm.See more of this home
Cerrone replaced a window with a glass door for instant access to a new outdoor balcony. A sliding screen solves the space challenges of the narrow thoroughfare. The screen tucks into a pocket behind the stainless steel refrigerator. The door frame went through the same dying process as the cabinetry for a more textural look.
