Patio Doors: Should They Match Your Windows?

Should you match your the finish and/or color of your new patio doors with your windows? This is a question that we often get from homeowners. So, what is the best design practice?


Matching Windows and Patio Doors

Symmetry is an essential element of exterior design, particularly with traditional home styles. This is why it’s common to find windows and patio doors with matching colors, finishes and accessories, such as grilles and hardware. Modern manufacturing processes make it easier than ever to match the color and finish of an existing window or door, even if it has a different interior color or finish.

Should Your Windows and Patio Doors Match?

You can match windows and patio doors with ease, but it doesn’t mean that you should limit your choices. Personal taste plays an important part in house design, and, sometimes, the overall design may call for different windows and patio doors. This can be an opportunity to use other elements like trim and siding to tie otherwise disparate components together.

If your house style calls for matching windows and patio doors, consider replacing the existing components to match the new ones.
