Why settle for a plain, old, boring door leading to your outdoor space when you can have a patio door that adds style to both your home interior and exterior?
Patio doors are not just functional, they also serve as an extension from your house interior leading to your beautiful garden, and bring in an al fresco vibe to your home.
If you’re still pondering over whether you should install a patio door or not, the following reasons may help you make your decision:
1. It increases property value
In terms of curb appeal, a well-designed patio can make your house look more attractive to potential buyers.
As long as your patio door matches well your patio area, buyers will see it as a bonus living space. It’s an exceptional way to maximize your outdoor space while having the perfect investment in case you decide to sell your house in the future.
Remember, when it comes to selling a home, looks count for a lot.
2. It saves energy
With glass as the main component of patio doors, it allows more natural light to enter your home.
What’s more, since a patio door has a wide opening, fresh air can freely penetrate and circulate. This way, you’ll be cutting down on your electricity costs with less use of artificial light and air conditioning.
3. It offers easy access to the outdoors
Want to embrace the splendor of nature? A patio door lets you do just that. If you also have a living space outdoors, your patio door will serve as an extension and offer you easy access to it.
The open air view provided by a patio door will be the connection between your home interior and exterior, and serve as the entryway to your deck, patio area, and backyard.
4. It reflects your personal style
With today’s technology, you can now customize your patio door to fit your personal style. From different colors to decorative hardware, there are many style options to suit your personal preferences. This gives you the design flexibility you’ve always wanted especially if you need your patio door to complement your home design.
For instance, you can also have blinds between glasses to maintain privacy. Although most patio doors use tempered glass for safety, you may opt for laminated glass for sound reduction and to protect your home against forcible entry.
5. It makes moving large objects in and out of your house easier
Bought a new furniture set?
Since a patio door has a wider opening, you can opt to enter through there so you won’t have a hard time moving your new furniture through, unlike your regular door which can pose some challenges.
6. It provides security
A majority of patio doors are made of glass, but don’t get fooled. They may seem highly breakable but they’re actually extremely secure and strong.
A door exists for a reason, and that is to keep unwanted guests out
When choosing a patio door for your home, opt for one that has the following security features:
- High-performance multi-point locking system
- Anti-lift mechanism
- Quality locking handles
- Anti-pick system
7. It makes a room look larger than it actually is
As patio doors allow more natural light in, the sunlight will change the atmosphere of the room. This gives off an open view and makes a room feel larger than it actually is.
So if your home feels constricted, the best way to make it look bigger while saving space is to install a patio door.
8. It gives you a great view of the outdoors
Looking through the glass of your patio door and seeing a magnificent view of your garden gives off a sense of comfort and induces a relaxing atmosphere.
Even if it’s raining hard outside, you can still relish the view without getting wet. So, after a stressful day at work, coming home to a calming sight comprising beautiful foliage and blooms is a sure visual treat.
