French Doors vs. Lanai Doors What Fits Your Home Best


If you were looking to make a unique statement or enhance the attractiveness of a homes exterior appearance then French doors would be the popular way to go. Some homeowners elect to install French doors in the interior of their home and use them to provide access to a formal dining or living area. French doors installed for exterior access usually overlook a garden or yard/deck area. In home and garden magazines, its common to see French doors overlooking a colorful garden populated by wildflowers, exotic plants and garden furniture.

Lanai doors utilize a similar approach, which is designed to bring the outdoors in. This provides a sense of artistic loveliness that one might associate with a picture. Lanai door craftsmanship is a reflection of the care put into handcrafted materials. The doors can be shaped, cut and measured to fit any opening, which include the corner of a house.

French doors cannot compete with the unique ability of a wrap around Lanai door. Glance at your breakfast nook; imagine the rare experience of a wrap around glass door that fits right into that nook. Lanai doors have the added benefit of their bi-folding application. Opening the Lanai doors can meld the patio and dining area into one. The transition from interior to exterior is seamless.

Fill Your Home with Light

Unlike French Doors, Lanai doors are not limited by the space availability or thickness of the walls. Installation is reasonable in most areas of wall space including around corners. Therefore, Lanai Doors are much more versatile than traditional French doors.

Typical exterior access on the rear of the home often comes from the dining or kitchen areas. Most exterior rear entrances look out over a backyard, a deck or a garden. Because typical French doors swing inwards or outwards, they create a usable space reduction. In the dining area, for example, a set of French doors may inhibit the placement of a dining table and other dining area furniture.

Lanai doors are not similarly inhibited by such special requirements. The bi-folding aspect of the doors allows them to be opened without sacrificing interior or exterior space.

Modern Elegance

Lanai doors offer all the modern elegance of the French door with the unique space considerations that will not limit their decorative options. This becomes even more important in the rapid spread of housing developments, which often feature cookie cutter houses. Lanai doors will make a house stand out in contrast to the details of the surrounding neighbors. French doors are considered an upgrade in most housing developments the Lanai doors will be an upgrade above and beyond what the French door can offer.

Ultimately, French doors cannot compete with the Lanai doors. This does not make the Lanai door better than the French door because this is a subjective choice that must be made by the homeowner. Lanai doors offer more in the way of flexibility for both interior and exterior space requirements. They also offer a look that is different and unique. Mixing exterior beauty with interior design is part of the Lanai door.

Homeowners Choice

Which door is the best choice for the modern home? Only the modern homeowner can answer that question. Efficient use of space that provides a seamless transition from the inside to the outside is one of the design features of the Lanai doors. A standout home is one that the homeowner invests time and energy into Lanai doors provide an ideal investment for the homeowner that wants to make their home stand out.

Strawberry and Lavender Gin

Not Just the 3 of Us


We love our picnics in the Not Just The 3 of Us household and I’ve always secretly hankered after something a bit more stylish and sophisticated than our usual plastic picnic set and carrier bag scenario. There is nothing worse than rolling up to the races and sitting next to the family with the full works and not a plastic knife and fork in sight! With our theme being quintessentially British – Strawberry & Lavender Gin , we chose food befitting of our menu. I even my managed to work in a little taster of my home grown Chives.

Strawberry  &  lavender  gin

Ingredients

  • 400ml Gin
  • 250g Strawberries
  • 100g Caster Sugar
  • 1/2 tsp Dried Lavender
  • 1/4 of a Vanilla Pod

Instructions

1. Find yourself a wide rimmed (at least wide enough to get a Strawberry in!) 1 litre or so bottle or jar with a lid.

2. Cut the Strawberries in half and put them in the jar.

3. Cut the 1/4 of a Vanilla Pod in half lengthways and add that to the jar too (not the end of the world if you don't use the Vanilla , this can be left out if preferred).

4. Drop in the sugar and Lavender and top up with the Gin. Give it a stir and put the lid on.

5. Now the wait! Leave it somewhere dark and warmish for two weeks , giving it a little shake every day (don't forget – this helps to dissolve the sugar).

6. Finally , strain it through a sieve , or a coffee filter , or just a piece of kitchen roll and bottle it. Good to go.

About the Basket:


Spoilt for choice with the wonderful selection on offer , I narrowed my selection down by practicality , number of covers and good quality tableware. My choice was the Coast 4 Person Picnic Basket because I loved the nautical style of this hamper and given that we spend a fair amount of time on Cornish beaches , this blue and white stripe fitted the bill perfectly.

The things that I particularly love about this hamper is that the equipment is really smart , the wine glasses are glass and not plastic and the plates are ceramic. Couple this with the smart white handled stainless steel knives and forks and the picnic is looking good.

The glasses are secured individually inside the basket with a strap. Not only does this keep the glasses in place but it also stops them knocking against each other during transit. The plates are also secured with a strap. This leaves ample space inside for some picnic food. Key to a Not Just The 3 of Us successful picnic is condiments and so the addition of a salt and pepper pot was a real draw here.

Chimichurri Chicken Sandwich

Seasons in Colour


Chimichurri chicken sandwich delight , an all time favourite with the family. Well , the grown ups love it and we first got introduced to it at that gorgeous Argentinian restaurant Gaucho in South Ken.
The ingredient that makes the whole dish here is the chimichurri sauce , a pesto-like sauce of Argentinian origin. It's a cold sauce , meaning you don't need to cook it and has very few ingredients.

There are two versions to it - the green one (that Gaucho serves together with its steaks) and which is mainly crushed parsley mixed with oregano and onions in olive oil (never , EVER use vegetable oil); and the red one which has peppers to it and which I'll show you here (but don't tell the kid I put peppers in , because he doesn't like them... *laughing emoji here*).

Strawberry Tarts

I Like Tweet


These sweet treats are ideal for whipping up before a summer picnic , they are beautifully bright , incredibly tasty and easy to eat wherever you are. They are the perfect addition as they’re quick and easy to make , but look effortlessly beautiful as part of a picnic. Pair with raspberry lemonade or a glass of chilled prosecco with a slice of strawberry in if you’re feeling fancy.

Strawberry  tarts  and  picnic  basket

Ingredients

For the pastry:
  • 350g plain flour
  • A pinch of salt
  • 125g unsalted butter (flattened out in between two sheets of greaseproof paper to 1cm thick , chilled in the fridge)
  • 125g caster sugar
  • 2 free-range eggs , whole and 1 egg , yolk only
  • 1 egg , yolk only , beaten for egg-wash
For crème pâtissière:
  • 500ml full fat milk
  • 2 vanilla pods , seeds removed and pods retained
  • 6 free-range eggs , yolks only
  • 120g caster sugar
  • 50g plain flour
For the toppings:
  • 400g strawberries (or any other fruit you fancy!)
To serve:
  • 4 tbsp clear apricot jam
  • 50g icing sugar

Instructions

1. For the sweet pastry , preheat the oven to 190C/350F/Gas 5.

2. Lightly grease and flour 12 x 8cm/3¼in loose bottomed tins.

3. Stir the flour and salt together in a large mixing bowl. Add the flattened butter straight from the fridge into the flour and rub in the mixture.

4. Add the sugar , mix together the eggs and egg yolk , and to the mixture. Gently mix with a dough scraper , or spatula , until the dough comes together in a ball.

5. Lightly flour a work surface , tip the pastry ball out onto it , and knead until you have a smooth soft dough. Shape the pastry into a square , to make it easier to roll out.

6. Place the dough the fridge to chill for an hour minimum , preferably overnight.

7. Remove the pastry from the fridge and lightly flour a work surface. Roll out the pastry 2-3mm thick and line the 12 tins , leaving an overhang of pastry. Place some greaseproof paper over the top and fill with baking beans. Rest in the fridge for 30 minutes.

8. Once chilled , place the pastry tart cases on a baking sheet and cook for 15 minutes. Lift out the paper and beans , brush with beaten egg yolk , and place back in the oven for 8 minutes.

9. Remove from the oven and allow to cool for 15 minutes. Then trim the edges and lift out onto a cooling rack.

10. For the crème patissière , place the milk , vanilla seeds and pods into a large saucepan and warm though.

11. Place the eggs , sugar and flour in a large mixing bowl and whisk until the colour changes and becomes pale. Gradually add the warm milk and vanilla to the egg mixture , whisk together , then return the mixture to the pan. Cook on a low heat until it the mixture thickens , then pour into a clean bowl. Place a circle of greaseproof paper on the mixture , to stop a skin forming.

12. To make up the fruit tarts , spoon the crème patissière in a piping bag , and pipe into the pastry cases. Top the tarts with the strawberries.

13. Put the apricot jam and 1-2 tablespoons of water in a small sauce pan and warm it through , so it loosens up and becomes more liquid. Lightly brush the fruit to glaze.

14. To serve , place the tarts on a cake stand and dust with icing sugar.

    For the price it’s fun, kids and adults have enjoyed it. I would order it again. The wood is a little less thick than what it appears to be in the ad but still decent swing and it’s priced appropriately. We are missing a screw and will call customer service about that but I’ve ordered from www.boisecloggers.com before and know they are a good company and will resolve this small issue.

    Delivery was great. Easy assembly for the most part as instructions and materials are fab. Keter she’s are definitely worth the money. Only thing was that two of the sides were slightly warped and so hard to fit... maybe the way it was stored? All up now and looks great... good size too.

    Absolutely lovely set that fits perfectly on the balcony. Quite comfortable and easy cleaning cushions. Only tiny addition needed (or advice) would be to get clips to hold some of the seating together, if you are putting on decking or hard flooring as it may slide apart.

    The wood seems nice and the table pop up is cool. The directions to assemble were not good - they could have saved me a lot of time with just a little more info. The pre assembled part was only okay, the lines were not totally clean. Fine for $200 but I feel sorry for anyone who paid full price.

    Below is my original review before I realised that the item sent to me isn't exactly the one described on the website - www.boisecloggers.com are selling something that is not as described, which is in breach of the Consumer Rights Act 2015. I've emailed www.boisecloggers.com a number of times explaining in detail the differences between the two items and they respond like they haven't read the emails. Basically, be aware that the shape of the item is slightly different for the walnut and oak than shown in the pics - it is the shape as shown in grey option. The weight capacity they have listed on website as 110kg, is actually on the supplied instructions as 100kg - which is a difference of 1.5st (but neither of these options are particularly great for what also claims to be a 2 seater). The pdf instructions on the website are also different and state that there's an included wall strap to prevent from toppling, but this isn't the case in the item being sent. As mentioned in my original review, the finish is worse than the photos and the walnut colour is also a darker brown - but then it is a different item to the one shown so I guess that's the reason - although www.boisecloggers.com don't want to admit it is a different item. "Disappointing with how cheap this looks, was aware it was laminated chipboard but it looks worse than in pictures online. Ordered walnut colour but it's more a warmer, chocolate brown than shown online - the pictures look lighter (yes I'm comparing the walnut pictures, not the other colours) and may have matched with our floor a bit better. Every edge where two strips of laminate meet there is a line of a lighter colour, so on a dark brown unit there's all these light lines highlighting every edge - not a look i find appealing either. Also in a few places the edge of the laminate was quite jagged and rough looking, and in some places there was clearly a chip that had been filled in during the manufacturing process with some brown filler, but luckily they occurred on sides we could hide. The whole unit was fairly straightforward to put together with every part fitting together well enough - but not perfectly; however, the instruction's pages were printed in an odd order, so check the page numbers as you go. Once constructed it seems sturdy enough, but the instructions say it should only support 100kg in weight (just over 15 stone), but due to its width it looks like it could fit 2 people, so it's a bit feeble it can barely hold one large adult - going to have to potentially insult guests when they go to use it and you're only allowing certain people on it. The cushion is also quite disappointing, but other reviews had mentioned that, so I was prepared; it is wipe clean though."

    This storage box was a bit of pain to put together, and the lid doesn't close as easily as another Sol 72 Outdoor storage box I bought, but I'm happy with this purchase. It's just the right amount of storage for my small covered/screened in patio, and I like that the top is flat so it makes a good extra seat when needed.

    I am so glad o bought this sofa set. I purchased it as I thought it seemed good value for money and also everyone else’s reviews really sold it to me. I built it myself, it did take a few hours but it was straightforward enough and the instructions were clear. We got it in time for Easter weekend and the weather was glorious so we made good use of it. I love it, it’s so comfortable and it’s lovely and big too so we can all sit on it. I love it and pray for sunny days so we can use it. I’ve put a throw on it as well just to make sure the kids don’t run the cushions. The only reason I took a star off is because the delivery I felt was just not very accommodating. Your not given a choice of dates and I got a date which was no good to me as I had to work. I had no idea how to rearrange the delivery and tell them I wasn’t in, only be chance the delivery was delayed by two hours which meant I just managed to arrive outside the house a few minutes after the delivery van. I think www.boisecloggers.com need to a look at a way that some agreement can be reached over the day the item is delivered.

    Product is of very good quality. I'm not used to having to build furniture so it took me quite a while to build - but I think that's my skills not the product. Instructions to build were good. Delivery was quick, and the driver carried the heavy boxes round the back for me.
