A patio door can do a lot of things for your home, including adding to your home’s style and overall curb appeal. Some of the newest trends in patio doors actually began from custom creations and are now widely available today. With so many patio door variations available from Dayside Windows and Doors, we have put together these top five trends to help you make your home stand out in the neighbourhood.

Trend #1: Indoor & Outdoor Living

The trend of using your outdoor space as an extension of your indoor space is still very popular. This has created a drive among homeowners and designers to integrate the patio more effectively with the inside of the home. Patios now feature outdoor kitchens, well-made furniture, and often converted sheds. It’s becoming more common that patio doors should provide a smooth visual transition between the indoors and outdoors. Dayside’s tilt and turn patio door series are the perfect match for this trend offering endless versatility for endless possibilities.

Trend #2: Expansive Glass

Multi-panel door systems and floor-to-ceiling glass is not just for luxury homes anymore. There are many ways to utilize expansive glass walls in your home. Consider marrying patio doors with windows in repetition to enjoy not only the maximum view possible, but also to take advantage of natural daylight and ventilation. If you’re looking to create this effect, try our sliding patio doors along with our slider windows and you will be on top of this trend in no time.

Trend #3: Energy Efficiency

Energy efficient doors are desirable because they can provide better comfort, consume less energy and help your home stay a consistent temperature. There are many energy efficient options to consider when selecting your patio doors such as a dual pane glass for improved insulation, Low-E glass coatings to block out undesirable solar rays and keep your home’s temperature controlled, or gas filled spacers for better thermal performance. A Dayside energy efficient patio door will help control your heating and cooling costs while sealing out winds and water allowing you to relax inside no matter what it’s like outside.

Trend #4: Black Frames

Black or dark exterior colours are a dramatic choice in patio doors and work well in contemporary homes as well as traditional spaces looking for a sophisticated style. They are eye catching and provide a visual accent to your home, reducing the need for heavy window treatments. When paired with white, or light coloured walls, black patio door frames create a strong contrast, a very desirable trend. Dayside’s patio doors come with a variety of exterior options including an assortment of colours to choose from.

Trend #5: Clean Lines

Patio doors offer a streamlined and contemporary look with their slim frames. Both windows and patio doors designed with clean lines help draw your eye toward the view and less on any interior decoration. Often associated with modern architecture, this style is simple, minimalistic and a very popular trend.
