How to Choose the Right Windows and Doors to Tie in Your Indoor and Outdoor Spaces

Having the proper transition between the inside of your Mankato home and your patio or sunroom can be difficult to accomplish. These transitions are critical because they allow folks to see in and out of your home and plays a huge role in making the entire design look consistent. When renovating or investing in replacement doors, there are many ways to make sure you are cohesively including all of the pieces together, whether in or outside of your door.

Outdoor patios and living spaces are used practically as much as kitchens or living rooms are in the Mankato area, assuming they are put together in a functional manner. Large glass windows and doors can be great for homeowners that spend a lot of time in their indoor and outdoor spaces. Here are four tips from the profs at Pella Windows and Doors to help you ease your home’s transition from the outside to the inside. 

  • It is crucial to keep the entry and exit clear where your indoor and outdoor spaces meet. A clear walkway can open up both indoor and outdoor spaces, making the transition between the two spaces feel seemless. Having the right door can also help let in natural light and make a seemless transition.

  • Add a touch of fun to your rooms by adding a large window and transition pieces, like a bar at the base of your window opening. Having a statement piece means you can entertain more people and can lengthen that space when you have larger groups of people over to your Mankato home.

  • When investing in a replacement door, use it as inspiration for your decorations. Making basic changes to your home’s décor to flow 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 pieces are great for blocking the sun, hanging lights, and simply helping you feel like you have a more upscale outdoor spaces in Mankato.
