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

Published on

Having the proper transition between the inside of your Des Moines home and your patio or sunroom can be difficult to accomplish. These transitions are critical because they allow folks to see in and out of your home and plays a huge role in making the entire design look consistent. When renovating or investing in replacement doors, there are many ways to ensure you are cohesively integrating all of the pieces together, whether in or outside of your door.

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

  • It is important to keep the entry and exit clear where your indoor and outdoor spaces come together. A clear walkway can open up each of the spaces, making the transition between the two spaces ease in to each other. Having the correct door can also help let in natural light and make a smooth transition.

  • Add a little fun to your rooms by adding a large window and transition pieces, like a bar at the base of your window opening. Having a unique piece means you can entertain more people and can spread that space when you have larger groups of people over to your Des Moines house.

  • When buying a replacement door, use it to create inspiration for your decorations. Making basic changes to your home’s décor to match the style of your new door can create a seamless transition for your new entryway.

  • Carry over the sense of a ceiling to your outdoor space through making pieces like a pergola. These Renaissance-inspired pieces are perfect for blocking the sun, hanging lights, and simply helping you feel like you have a nicer outdoor spaces in Des Moines.
