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

Having the proper transition between the inside of your Minneapolis home and your patio or sunroom can be difficult to achieve. These transitions are critical because they allow folks to see in and out of your home and plays a large role in making the entire design look unified. 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 nearly as much as kitchens or living rooms are in the Minneapolis 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 few tips from the profs at Pella Windows and Doors to help you design 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 bit of fun to your rooms by purchasing a large window and transition pieces, like a bar at the base of your window opening. Having a bold piece means you have the ability to entertain more people and can spread that space when you have larger groups of people over to your Minneapolis home.

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

  • Keep the sense of a ceiling to your outdoor space through creating pieces like a pergola. These Renaissance-inspired creations are perfect for blocking the sun, hanging lights, and simply helping you feel like you have a nicer outdoor spaces in Minneapolis.
