Bringing the Outdoors In: The Advantages of Large Patio Doors

Western Windows Large Patio Doors

Large patio doors are more than just an exit; they’re a way to transform your living space. By bringing the outdoors in, they offer a host of benefits that enhance your home’s functionality, beauty, and even your well-being.

If you have or are planning a beautiful outdoor space, you’ll want to showcase it from inside your living space. A large patio door will frame your outdoor space inviting your family and guests to enjoy it.

Lighten Up Your Space: One of the biggest advantages is the flood of natural light. Large glass panes bathe your interior in sunshine, making rooms feel brighter and more inviting. This natural light can also boost your mood and improve sleep quality.

Expand Your Horizons: Large patio doors visually expand your living area. Imagine your living room seamlessly connecting to your patio or deck. This creates a sense of spaciousness, perfect for smaller homes or open floor plans.

Blur the Lines: Bi-fold or multi-slide doors can open an entire wall, truly merging your indoor and outdoor spaces. This is ideal for entertaining, allowing guests to flow between areas easily.

Fresh Air Flow: Large patio doors provide excellent ventilation. When opened, they usher in cool breezes and help remove stale air, keeping your home feeling fresh and comfortable.

Enhanced Views: Whether you have a picturesque backyard or a scenic balcony, large patio doors let you enjoy the view to the fullest. The expansive glass becomes a window onto your outdoor oasis.

Greater Access: Large doors create a wider opening, making it easier to move furniture, bring in large objects, or navigate with pets.

Style Up Your Home: Modern large patio doors come in a variety of styles and finishes to complement any décor. They can add a touch of sophistication and elegance to your home.

Increased Value: Large patio doors are a popular upgrade, and they can potentially increase the resale value of your home.

What’s Available in Large Patio Doors?

Replacing an existing patio door? Just like in replacement windows, options are available to improve energy efficiency, block out UV light, and increase security.

There are several styles and configurations to choose from:

Sliding Patio Doors: Replacing a sliding glass door is one of your best decisions. Single-pane, aluminum framed sliding glass doors, as many OEM builders install, are inefficient. The heat from the sun penetrates this poor insulator and makes your A/C constantly run while trying to maintain your indoor temperature. Replacing it provides the opportunity to improve quality, usability, and security.

Garden Patio Doors: Garden doors are similar in overall size to sliding patio doors, except that they usually have one fixed panel and one swinging door panel. They can also be mulled to additional fixed panels for wider openings.

French Doors: French patio doors have two swinging door panels providing a wide passage to facilitate easy access and ease of moving furniture into or out of the home.

Window Walls: Many consider this large patio door option the ultimate. Imagine an entire wall fitted with fixed and sliding panels! For example, homes with incredible lake views will benefit from the wide, unobstructed view of the distant landscape.
