4 steps to find your Keller home's perfect patio door

Do you feel like your house could use more natural light to brighten and warm your favorite spaces? Patio doors offer unobstructed views that flood your home with natural light and provide convenient access to the outside. Whether you’re replacing an old door or installing one for the first time, a new patio door can add light and comfort to any room. With a variety of styles available, follow these four simple steps to choosing the right patio door for your Keller home.

1. Think about your lifestyle and budget
Keep the people, places and things in your life in mind as you shop for a new door. Need to keep blinds and shades out of reach of children and/or pets? What’s the size of the room? What about the summer heat? Answers to these questions, as well as knowing your set budget, will help you narrow down your choices.

2. Select a style 
You’ll be able to choose from a variety of styles, including hinged, French and sliding doors. Some manufacturers offer an online design tool letting you play with different styles and finishes. Hinged and French wood patio doors add a classic, elegant look and work well in more spacious rooms where they don’t run the risk of bumping into any furniture or walls when open. You can choose from two doors that swing open from the middle, one movable with one fixed door or a single hinged door. Since they don’t swing open, sliding patio doors require less floor space. This allows you to place furniture nearby or brighten up the smaller rooms in your home.

3. Choose a material type 
It's important to consider the material type of your door based on your climate, the style of your home and your personal preference. Patio doors can come in three different material types:

* Wood creates a warm, natural look and can be stained or painted to complement most home styles and decor.

* Fiberglass is the most durable option and is well suited for extreme heat and cold climates while also providing the look of a painted wood door.

* Vinyl offers added energy efficiency, low-maintenance and affordable quality.

4. Select additional features and options
You can personalize your patio door with added features to create more style and function. Try out different stains and finishes, add stylish nickel hardware, or select a patio door with blinds, shades or grilles tucked between the panes of glass.

Investing in the perfect patio door can provide long term value for your Keller home while providing you with a great new  feature to enjoy immediately.
