The patio doors in your home are attractive set pieces in their own right, but you can further enhance them by pairing them with certain window styles. The result is a door that’s more than just a gateway to the outdoors. It becomes a visually appealing statement piece that adds flair to your home.
In this post, your local window and roofing contractors at Silver Leaf Contracting share what window styles you can pair with your patio door.
The static picture window is a popular style to combine with other windows and doors, and is an excellent choice for patio doors. Due to its sleek and contemporary design, it’s easier to pair than other windows and can be as simple as flanking the door with two of these styles.
Alternatively, you can use a single picture window to pair with the patio door for an unobstructed view of the outdoors.
The horizontal beam that separates the upper part of the door from the glass that sits above it is called the transom. These small, rectangular windows are often paired with shorter doors to increase their height, but they can also be used for patio doors.
When pairing a transom window with a patio door, the former is usually as long as the door is wide. While the combination may seem superficial at first, many roofers and home contractors agree that the additional window on top of the patio door can help improve the daylighting of the home.
The classic design of the casement window makes it another popular style to pair with doors and other windows. Like its picture window counterparts, you can pair it as a singular window or flank the patio door with two. Both French patio and sliding patio doors pair well with this window style due to its simple but eye-catching aesthetics.
