Spring is finally here — or at least pretending to be, which is close enough in New England to get the renovation and upgrade plans started! With such an emphasis on outdoor living styles in the news, it’s a great time to consider your patio, your patio door, and how to select the ideal patio door to frame your outdoor living space.
A great patio door can do so much for your home. By serving as the portal between indoor and outdoor living spaces, the ideal patio door will set the emotional tone, from classic and timeless to artsy and contemporary.
The best patio doors serve as a focal point in a room’s decor. With a lovely view of your back yard framed for you, you can enjoy the birds, local wildlife, scenery and your children or grandchildren at play — all while in the comfort of your own home, free from nasty drafts and chilly breezes.
Installing a patio door, particularly one from highly regarded manufacturers like Alside and Champion, can ease access to your outdoor living spaces, meaning your entire family can comfortably join in the fun. This is particularly important if you have small children who have to run in to use the bathroom, or elderly relatives who have difficulty navigating stairs and uneven walkways.
In high traffic neighborhoods, a patio door can add an element of security by allowing children and pets to access outdoor dining and play spaces that are safely fenced in.
Modern patio doors also offer energy efficiency. With double or triple insulated glass panels, patio doors no longer have to let valuable heating or cooling energy leak away — a waste of valuable dollars! Rigid, secure locking frames ensure that patio doors offer the ultimate security options: the best option here is to go with a reputable high quality patio door manufacturer.
