There are areas of your home that are neither an indoor or outdoor space. These in-between spaces are often the most crowded spots since they connect the indoors and outdoors. To improve this space, columns, rafters, windows and patio doors can be added to provide a transition for your home.
Renewal by Andersen® of Portland, your premier window provider, discusses how you can bridge these mid-spaces in the most stylish way.
When your living space is overlooking a view, but situated on a narrow lot and constrained by an adjacent home, you can create a protected outdoor room that will divide the two structures. This can preserve privacy for both parties while allowing an outdoor-centered space for the residents.
A pivoting door installation can create a gathering place. Place five rotating doors side by side. They can serve as a blinder to screen the neighboring structure. In addition, this design can add more space and functionality to your home.
This type of space is more inwardly-centered and enclosed. It is usually bounded by nearby walls. Courtyards can provide natural ventilation and light into tight spaces. Adding beautiful floor plates and porches enhance its overall aesthetic. Even in urban areas, courtyards can be used to improve the property aesthetics. Bricks can be installed to capture and reflect daylight back into a counterpoint of greenery.
Even the most private space can benefit from vertical site development. You can build an outdoor shower next to the bathroom or cleverly position a door with etched or frosted glass. This idea will let you maximize the space and admit natural light.
