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 Indianapolis home and your patio or sunroom can be difficult to attain. These transitions are important because they allow guests to see in and out of your home and plays a large role in making the whole design look consistent. When renovating or investing in replacement doors, there are a number of ways to make sure you are cohesively integrating all of the pieces together, whether in or outside of your door.

Outdoor patios and living spaces are used almost as much as kitchens or living rooms are in the Indianapolis area, assuming they are designed 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 four tips from the profs at McComb Window & Door to help you soften your home’s transition from the outside to the inside. 

  • It is important to keep the entry and exit clear where your indoor and outdoor spaces come together. A clear walkway can open up each of the spaces, making the transition between the two spaces flow. Having the right door can also help let in natural light and make a smart transition.

  • Add a little fun to your rooms by getting a large window and transition pieces, like a bar at the base of your window opening. Having a bold piece means you can entertain more people and can extend that space when you have larger groups of people over to your Indianapolis place.

  • When investing in a replacement door, use it as inspiration for your decorations. Making simple changes to your home’s décor to match the style of your new door can create a great transition for your new entryway.

  • Retain the sense of a ceiling to your outdoor space through adding 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 more upscale outdoor spaces in Indianapolis.
