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

Having the right transition between the inside of your Decatur home and your patio or sunroom can be hard to achieve. These transitions are important because they allow people to see in and out of your home and plays a big role in making the complete design look consistent. When renovating or investing in replacement doors, there are a variety 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 practically as much as kitchens or living rooms are in the Decatur 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 four 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 come together. A clear walkway can open up each of the 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 statement piece means you can entertain more people and can lengthen that space when you have larger groups of people over to your Decatur 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 fantastic transition for your new entryway.

  • Retain the sense of a ceiling to your outdoor space through making pieces like a pergola. These Renaissance-inspired creations are ideal for blocking the sun, hanging lights, and simply helping you feel like you have a fancier outdoor spaces in Decatur.
