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

Having the correct transition between the inside of your Long Island home and your patio or sunroom can be tough to achieve. These transitions are essential because they allow guests to see in and out of your home and plays a huge role in making the complete design look cohesive. 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 nearly as much as kitchens or living rooms are in the Long Island area, assuming they are put together 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 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 of the spaces, making the transition between the two spaces feel seemless. Having the right door can also help let in natural light and make a seemless 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 are able to entertain more people and can extend that space when you have larger groups of people over to your Long Island home.

  • When getting a replacement door, use it to spur inspiration for your decorations. Making easy changes to your home’s décor to flow 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 additions are great for blocking the sun, hanging lights, and simply helping you feel like you have a nicer outdoor spaces in Long Island.
