Choosing new patio doors for your home demands finding a delicate balance of style and functionality. The best door for your needs may be a sliding patio door, folding door or garden door. However, no matter what door you choose, there are a few trends this season to keep in mind when investing in a new door for your Ottawa home.
Patio doors with dark or black frames create a dramatic contrast when paired with white or light-coloured walls. The bold look means you don’t need expensive window treatments to complete your decor. Vinyl patio doors come in various colours, including dark hues and black, and they’re easy to clean and maintain.
Patio doors with built-in blinds
You can now purchase patio doors with blinds permanently sealed between two panes of glass. The blinds are tucked away and cordless, so they’re an excellent choice for homes with children or pets. Integrated blinds and shades come in a multitude of colours to match your décor, and you never need to clean them. You can open and close your blinds from anywhere with an app. The glass panes aren’t insulated with argon gas. However, the blinds themselves add insulation and UV ray protection when closed.
Contrary to bold, dark frames, patio doors with slim, elegant frames can give your home a contemporary look. Thin frames draw attention to the view rather than the door and create a harmonious transition between your indoor and outdoor living areas.
French doors have been in style since they were invented in 16th century France. Elegant yet secure French doors add a sophisticated yet timeless look to your patio or garden entrance.
With climate change making the news every day, it’s no wonder that choosing energy-efficient patio doors and windows is a popular trend. Manufacturers are making patio doors extremely efficient, despite their size and ability to open.
For maximum efficiency, choose a patio door with dual-pane glass with the space between the panes filled with a dense gas such as argon. Additionally, low-E glass coatings block harmful UV rays from entering your home. Energy-efficient patio doors help keep your home warm in winter and cool in summer, reducing your energy bills. Besides saving you money, energy-efficient windows reduce the amount of greenhouse gas pumped into the atmosphere.
