Things to Consider When Customizing a Patio Door

By choosing the right exterior doors for your home, you can brighten up your space and make it more connected to the outdoors. Today’s patio doors are available in a wide range of color and hardware options to complement your home.

Here are some important things to consider when customizing a patio door.


Swinging patio doors come in various styles, including center-hinged, garden and French. Garden and hinged patio doors have a single fixed panel, while French patio doors both swing. This door style can easily complement your home’s architecture.

On the other hand, with sliding patio doors you can achieve both style and functionality, as they create a seamless transition between indoor and outdoor spaces. In addition, the expansive glass area will let in plenty of sunlight, which will make your home feel comfortable and inviting all year ’round.


There are various grid styles available for patio doors, such as colonial, diamond, perimeter and more. At Renewal by Andersen, we believe that even the smallest details of your door can affect its look and personality. Our high-quality hardware options include brass and stained nickel finishes with innovative coatings that withstand tarnishing and corrosion.

Furthermore, you should choose a door color that goes well with both your home’s interior and exterior. We offer various color options that will complement any home style. You can also choose from several different glass options, like our High-Performance™ Low-E4® glass. This glass option is 56 percent more energy-efficient in summer and 45 percent more energy-efficient in winter than standard glass.
