How to Mix and Match Windows and Patio Doors

Replacing old windows and doors is one of the simplest ways to change your home’s look. The right replacement windows and patio doors can significantly increase your curb appeal. However, with all the styles available today, it can be a challenge to choose the best ones for your house. 

Read on to get tips on how to combine different styles of windows and patio doors. 

Sliding Patio Doors and Picture Windows

Combining stationary picture windows with sliding patio doors will give your home a classic look. This window-door combination will give you an uninterrupted view of your yard or patio while keeping you protected from weather and the elements. 

Hinged French Patio Doors and Arched Transom Windows

A transom window is a horizontal beam separating the door from the window above it. French patio doors usually come with rectangular transom windows. However, semi-oval transom windows blend well with the angular features of French doors. It also softens the sharp details of the door.  

Arched transom windows should span the length of your French doors. Your window contractor can achieve this combination by taking the door-to-window ratio into consideration. Since arched windows are considered custom windows, hiring a skilled contractor is essential to ensure proper design and installation. 

Hinged French Patio Doors and Double-Hung Windows

Two of the most timeless window and door styles, when paired together can make your home more elegant. Hinged French patio doors and double-hung windows are simply stylish together. You can even add seats below your double-hung windows so you can enjoy the view of your yard without having to get outside.
