How to Choose the Right Windows and Doors to Tie in Your Indoor and Outdoor Spaces

Published on

Having the right transition between the inside of your Grand Rapids home and your patio or sunroom can be hard to accomplish. These transitions are important because they allow guests to see in and out of your home and plays a big role in making the whole design look cohesive. When renovating or investing in replacement doors, there are a variety of ways to be sure you are cohesively including all of the pieces together, whether in or outside of your door.

Outdoor patios and living spaces are used nearly as much as kitchens or living rooms are in the Grand Rapids area, assuming they are designed in a functional manner. Large glass windows and doors can be good for homeowners that spend a lot of time in their indoor and outdoor spaces. Here are a couple tips from the profs at Pella Windows and Doors to help you design your home’s transition from the outside to the inside. 

  • It is essential to keep the entry and exit clear where your indoor and outdoor spaces join. A clear walkway can open up each of the spaces, making the transition between the two spaces flow. Having the proper door can also help let in natural light and make a smooth transition.

  • Add a touch of fun to your rooms by purchasing a large window and transition pieces, like a bar at the base of your window opening. Having a unique piece means you have the ability to entertain more people and can lengthen that space when you have larger groups of people over to your Grand Rapids house.

  • When getting a replacement door, use it as inspiration for your decorations. Making simple changes to your home’s décor to go along with your new door can create a great transition for your new entryway.

  • Carry over the sense of a ceiling to your outdoor space through adding pieces like a pergola. These Renaissance-inspired additions are great for blocking the sun, hanging lights, and simply helping you feel like you have a more upscale outdoor spaces in Grand Rapids.
