Dining rooms with sliding patio doors can really add an air of elegance, convenience, and fun in a home, especially here in Michigan.
Picture it. …
Your family sits around the dining room table talking and laughing as the warm breeze blows in on a summer weekday evening.
Perhaps you have a small party where you can slide the patio doors completely open, allowing people to pile up a delicious plate of food and then step outside to enjoy it on your beautiful patio.
Or maybe, just maybe, as a southeast Michigan resident, you prefer to imagine a picturesque wintertime scene with the snow gently falling outside as your family enjoys breakfast or lunch in the warm dining room.
However you like to use your dining room, sliding patio doors will take it to another level. With quality windows from designers like Andersen Window + Door, along with our expertise in window installation, you can create the dining room design you have always wanted.
Benefits of Dining Rooms with Sliding Patio Doors in Southeast Michigan
The aesthetic advantages of having dining rooms with sliding patio doors are clear. However, there are many additional benefits that are not as apparent.
1. Increased home value
As long as the dining room and patio doors remain in good shape, this feature may increase the resale value of your house. Homebuyers love to see the open view from the floor to the ceiling, and sliding doors let in natural light, which is another quality homebuyers appreciate.
2. Additional space for large gatherings
Let’s say you are planning a 50th birthday party for your spouse, but you want it to have an elegant yet casual theme. You go all out to plan the perfect meal and dining room tablescape. But there’s one problem: the table is not quite large enough for all your guests to sit comfortably. The solution? Slide open those dining room patio doors, allowing your guests to mingle inside and outside.
3. Convenience for outdoor dining
Convenience is one of the greatest benefits of having dining rooms with sliding patio doors. As you’re outside barbecuing on the grill, for example, you can slide open those doors to make walking in and out easier.
In southeast Michigan, this feature may even make it easier for you to grill outdoors while it’s raining. If you have an awning over your patio, your family can still dine together inside while staying out of the rain and still getting the outdoor experience.
4. More circulation in the home to eliminate food odors and residue
As you are cooking or dining, opening the patio doors in the dining room and kitchen will let the fresh air in and the food odors out. Doing so can also reduce the amount of cooking oils that would otherwise cling to your kitchen walls and cabinets.
5. Creating an indoor-outdoor design theme
Enhance your dining room by adding patio furniture outside that matches the theme of your interior furniture. Landscape the patio to create an all-encompassing design that allows for a smooth, fluid transition from inside to outside.
