Tips for Combining Patio Door and Window Styles

Windows and doors give your home more personality, and choosing the right combinations can even increase its value. However, with all the styles, colors, finishes and other customization options available today, it can be challenging to pick the right ones.


Contemporary Homes

This home style is known for its simple and minimalist design elements. Contemporary homes usually have large picture, sliding and casement windows to open up the space. A solid or glass insert flush door with little to no embellishment is great for this home style. Make sure to keep the door’s glass design minimal with basic geometric shapes.

Traditional Homes 

Traditional homes usually feature clean lines and simple architectural elements. Double-hung, bay or bay windows are ideal for this classic style. To complete the look, you can pair these windows with a paneled door.


The craftsman home style became popular in the early twentieth century. It boasts of warm brick construction, low-pitched roofs, front porches and large, square columns. You accentuate the features of your craftsman home with double-hung windows that have a valance grid. Pair this window style with a simple French door.

Victorian Homes

One of the most attractive and intricate home styles today is Victorian. These homes usually have intricate ornamentation, railings and columns, wrap porches, bold palettes and circular or geometric towers. Double-hung, transom, bay or bow, arched, stationery and specialty windows are all great options for Victorian homes. Consider pairing your windows with French patio doors.
