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

Published on

Having the correct transition between the inside of your South Portland home and your patio or sunroom can be hard to achieve. These transitions are important because they allow folks to see in and out of your home and plays a large role in making the whole design look cohesive. When renovating or investing in replacement doors, there are a number of ways to ensure you are cohesively incorporating 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 South Portland area, assuming they are designed in a functional manner. Large glass windows and doors can be great 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 ease 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 smart transition.

  • Add a bit of fun to your rooms by getting 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 South Portland house.

  • When buying a replacement door, use it to spur inspiration for your decorations. Making basic changes to your home’s décor to go along with your new door can create a seamless transition for your new entryway.

  • Keep 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 fancier outdoor spaces in South Portland.
