This home's kitchen opens to a beautiful courtyard area with wood decking. A nearly 12-foot expanse of architectural outswing folding patio doors, constructed of high-performance, Low-E4 glass, ensure energy efficiency throughout the year.
This covered porch from the HGTV Dream Home 2012 provides ample space for entertaining. Sturdy, solid aluminum furnishings are paired with cushions covered in stain-, mold- and mildew-resistant performance fabric. The chocolate upholstery color complements the bold, graphic, all-weather area rug.
The industrial black ceiling creates the perfect vibe for an in-home performance stage in this basement. The gray rug outlines the stage area complete with leather stools, microphone and guitar stand. A gray sofa makes for comfortable viewing with three wooden coffee tables to rest drinks on.
Of course, you want your glass wall to make a style statement and open your interiors to outdoor living spaces and views, but it’s also important that they keep your home safe and comfortable. All of the Kolbe’s sliding and folding doors have the ability to have both dual-pane and triple-pane glass installed within the panels. Along with several types of low emissivity (LoE) coatings, these units can be produced for maximized thermal performance in any region and with any desired performance, from the heating regions of the north to the cooling in the south. And, says Lance Premeau, LEED® Green Associate Product & Market Manager, Kolbe Windows & Doors, “There are areas in the United States that require window and door products to be impact-rated. This means that the units have passed rigorous testing protocol and can be used in areas ranging from the eastern seaboard, around Florida and along the Gulf Coast.”
