Patio doors can add an inviting, cheerful vibe to your living area by bathing it in natural light. With the right design elements, they can also achieve a seamless connection between your indoor and outdoor spaces.
Here, Renewal by Andersen® of Portland shares some design tips to consider if you’re planning to invest in Patio doors in Portland:
Matching Floor Levels
To create a sense of continuity, your patio and indoor floors should be the same height. You can achieve this by building a gravel bed with a drainage channel below. For a cohesive look, choose an interior and exterior frame color that matches your flooring. Our patio doors come in a variety of finishes that will blend well with your home.
Expansive Glass Area
Your patio doors must also provide visual transparency to create a seamless flow between your interior and exterior space. We recommend choosing units with narrow frame lines to allow larger glass areas. Our patio doors feature a High-Performance™ Low-E4® glass to keep your indoor space comfortable through the shifting climates. For expansive views, consider combining patio doors with our high-quality replacement windows in Wilsonville.
Losing the Wall
If privacy is not a problem, you can replace your walls with floor-to-ceiling doors. Our hinged Frenchwood® patio doors can create a large opening, allowing ample natural light to flood your living space. These doors swing outward, which means they can save space.
At Renewal by Andersen, our patio doors come with engineered wood core frame and panel members for exceptional strength and performance. They also have a weatherstrip/interlock system to prevent energy from escaping your living space. These features will keep your home comfortable while providing a refreshing ambiance.
