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 St. Paul home and your patio or sunroom can be difficult to attain. These transitions are important because they allow folks to see in and out of your home and plays a big role in making the entire design look cohesive. When renovating or investing in replacement doors, there are a number 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 practically as much as kitchens or living rooms are in the St. Paul 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 a couple 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 essential to keep the entry and exit clear where your indoor and outdoor spaces meet. A clear walkway can open up both indoor and outdoor spaces, making the transition between the two spaces flow. Having the correct door can also help let in natural light and make a smart transition.

  • Add a little 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 are able to entertain more people and can lengthen that space when you have larger groups of people over to your St. Paul home.

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

  • Retain 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 St. Paul.
