Which Windows Pair Well With Patio Doors?

Pairing windows with your glass patio doors can enhance natural lighting in your home and give you a stunning, panoramic view of the outdoors. In today’s post, Renewal by Andersen® of Dallas-Fort Worth discusses which styles of patio doors and windows work best together.

Sliding Patio Doors and Picture Windows 

There’s just no substitute for natural light, which can actually improve people’s moods. More natural light can also make a cramped room feel more spacious than it is. That’s why sliding patio doors and picture windows—both of which have wide glass areas—pair beautifully together. Design-wise, sliding patio doors, flanked on both sides by picture windows, can give your home a sleek, modern look.

Hinged French Patio Doors and Arched Transom Windows

Want to add Old-World elegance to your facade? The classic combination of French patio doors and arched transom windows is a good choice. The most striking feature of French patio doors is their angular components, which stem from the French Renaissance’s focus on symmetry, proportion and geometry. Pairing hinged French patio doors with semi-oval transom windows can soften the sharpness of these angular features.

Hinged French Patio Doors and Double-Hung Windows 

What if you want a simpler aesthetic? Try pairing hinged French patio doors with classic double-hung windows. You can’t go wrong with pairing these two timeless window and door styles.

Door-to-Window Ratio

Remember: When it comes to pairing doors with windows, proportion is just as important as aesthetics. That’s why it’s a good idea to consult with a home improvement contractor about the recommended size rations for your door-and-window pairings.
