There are several considerations to make when adding patio doors to a room or when replacing old, outdated doors with something new. The different styles of patio doors can be used to match any decor and style, and can really add light, brightness, or an open feeling to any room and space in a home.
However, while many people think of patio doors as just an entrance or exit to a room, it is also important to keep in mind that these doors are a large part of the total wall area of any room. Choosing a design that is consistent with the color and style of your room is critical, but with the options that are available it won’t be difficult to find the right match.
Style of Frame
The frame and the non-glass part of the patio door is a very important consideration. While many people prefer a minimal wood frame area with a very large glassed area, there are other options to consider as well. The rich wood paneling on the doors can really highlight a room and make the doors a central focus on any exterior wall.
A beautiful look is a natural wood area around the door on the bottom and around the edges. This extra wood adds depth and color, and allows you to get away from the standard white generic look. Add to that unique glass choice and you can have a very stylish and original looking patio door that compliments your garden and patio or deck, as well as the interior of your home.
Most people think only about standard glass, but when it comes to adding design and style to your home, patio doors can add to that with amazing options to the designs in the glass. Any option will work to provide great light, but you may want to consider a granite glass or a fine diamond pattern to also provide some privacy and an additional layer of security. Flemish glass, with its very rustic look and naturally looking pattern, is also an option to consider for maximum light and maximum privacy.
The key to finding which patio doors are right for your home is to spend some time looking at the options you have. Too many people simply assume the styles available at those big box hardware stores are the only options, when in fact they’re really just the more basic ones.
