Room With a View

Interior design trends in doors and windows today lean towards the bigger the better. Large scale glass doors and windows are becoming more and more popular. The west coast benefits from stunning scenery from the waterways, coast to mountain ranges to expansive city views. Blending the indoor and outdoor living spaces makes sense.

Not only are large scale window and door designs popular today in new construction but extending living spaces from the inside out has also quickly become a design prerequisite. Patio doors are no longer just sliders and no longer just frame and glass. High-tech versions can be accordion or can stack or can completely disappear into a wall. These doors can incorporate screens to keep the bugs out but also shades to help with sun and temperature control.
