Patio doors differ from entry doors in that they provide more than just a means of access they can also create a seamless transition between your indoor and outdoor spaces. Here are some patio door ideas to provide you with inspiration:
If your patio door happens to face another entry point, then select matching doors. When both sets of doors are opened, it creates a continuous space that extends from one exterior space to another. If your project includes replacing the flooring material, consider installing it on both the patio and the immediate indoor space. When installed between both doors, it reinforces the continuous flow.
Private Garden Entrance
For bedrooms that connect to a private backyard space, such as a small garden, a patio door can be the perfect connection. A private garden makes an excellent relaxation spot it could be a flower garden, a Japanese rock garden or something with a water feature. You can integrate stone or wooden seats within the garden space itself.
Alternatively, a backyard garden can be the perfect connecting space to a bathroom since it provides ample natural lighting. You can manage privacy through any combination of window treatments and obscured glass. Also, an exterior hot tub that connects to the bathroom further enhances the experience of relaxing under an open sky.
Connect the Family Room to Your Outdoor Space
If your yard or pool area is immediately outside the family room, consider taking out the entire wall and replacing it with a patio door and a window wall. The result will dramatically open up both spaces and will look as if the patio doors and window wall merely delineate certain areas in a single space. Your interior will benefit from the increase in natural light. And if you want to enjoy the comfort of your family room, you can still keep an eye on the kids at play without going outside.
