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 Northern Virginia home and your patio or sunroom can be difficult to attain. These transitions are important because they allow guests to see in and out of your home and plays a big role in making the entire design look consistent. When renovating or investing in replacement doors, there are a number of ways to be sure you are cohesively incorporating 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 Northern Virginia area, assuming they are created 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 both indoor and outdoor spaces, making the transition between the two spaces feel seemless. Having the proper 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 statement piece means you can entertain more people and can lengthen that space when you have larger groups of people over to your Northern Virginia house.

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

  • Retain the sense of a ceiling to your outdoor space through creating 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 Northern Virginia.
