With the right design and placement, your patio doors can be much more than a means to enter or exit your home. High-quality patio doors can establish a seamless connection between your indoor and outdoor living spaces, enhancing the beauty and ambiance of both. Additionally, patio doors don’t necessarily have to open out to your patio — you can install them in other areas of your home too. Read on as we explore some alternative ideas for patio door placement.

Alternative Patio Door Placement Ideas to Consider


French doors that open onto balconies help maximize natural light as well as allow access. Patio doors provide excellent ventilation as well as an alternative way to enjoy an outdoor view. Renewal by Andersen® patio doors have advanced security features so you don’t need to worry about safety.

Room Corners

Nearly every patio door installation plan places the patio door in the center of a wall. However, patio doors can also be installed to good effect in the corner of a room. If you have an outdoor deck that spans more than one side of your home, then corner patio doors might make perfect sense. They can allow multi-sided access to your yard, which can be very convenient when hosting a backyard party.

Multiple Patio Doors In a Row

One set of patio doors is great, but multiple patio doors can create a truly spectacular effect. If your home looks out on an attractive garden, hillside or lake, you can maximize the view by installing multiple patio doors side by side. Renewal by Andersen can help you choose the right combination of patio door frames and grilles.
