A patio door can be one of the most impressive-looking features of any home, but you might feel like it’s not getting the attention it deserves. Your local door replacement company, Stittsville Windows and Doors, shares a few tips on bringing more attention to your patio doors.
Use Your Furniture
Large features can divert a person’s eyes to specific points in your home. Couches and comfy chairs can “point” to where you want people to look at, so use that to your advantage. Have them facing your patio door, and your visitors will naturally be drawn to it (and the great view outside).
Leave an Open Path
Sometimes the lack of features works just as good as major visual factors in the room. For example, having a clear pathway from one end of the room to your sliding glass doors creates a natural flow that ultimately points to the outside. Keep sofas or cabinets clear of the path, and it should be enough to direct foot traffic and people’s attention.
Create Color Contrast
The proper use of color can also help divert attention away from the rest of the room toward your patio doors. Use door frames with colors that contrast with the rest of the wall, and you’ll find that it tends to stick out and draw attention. Using the same idea, use pieces of furniture that match the rest of the room so they stand out less than your patio doors.
Don’t Pass on the Glass
Your patio door’s greatest assets are its glass panes. This is especially true for French door styles that provide a great view whether open or closed. Pick a door with large glass panes, and the outdoor view will catch the attention of the people in the room.
