The exterior of the Severn's home has been completely transformed by the addition of two sets of french doors, an open patio with outdoor seating, German Schmear on the brick, and fresh landscaping, as seen on Fixer Upper.
In this stunning modern living room, huge doorways open the space out onto the gorgeous pool and patio blending outdoor and indoor living. A simple sectional sofa helps block out the interior conversation area.
This large patio has a range of outdoor entertaining options: An open-air sitting area cozies up by a raised fire pit. There's also a covered patio with the potential to be completely shielded from the elements, thanks to a cleverly-designed pergola with louvers and automated vinyl walls.
This open concept patio allows immediate access to the backyard area, while still providing overhead coverage. Neutral tiles are featured throughout and stainless steel outdoor furniture adds a sleek touch. A nearby stone staircase boasts a glass and stainless steel railing, complementing the overall look of the space.
Charcoal gray siding covers the levels and layers of this modern home. Large windows provide a peak into the home while downstairs patios and a second story balcony expand the living space into the outdoors.
Sunset lighting beautifully highlights the smooth, warm tone wood exterior of this home. The architecture shape, roof overhangs and large untreated windows perfectly embody the modern style. Planted shrubs frame a walkway leading to the porch.
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.”
Enclosing an area with sliding or folding windows allows you flexibility in how you use and experience the space depending on the season, the occasion, or just your mood. When choosing a large-opening door, your choices are virtually limitless. Here, folding doors open an intimate dining area to a much more expansive space. “Keep in mind that folding panels can be configured in numerous ways, from folding all to one side to splitting in the middle and folding to both sides. This unit also has the unique available option of a swing door within the folding door system. This means that the user can operate the user-friendly single door like any other door without having to open all of the panels,” says Lance Premeau, LEED® Green Associate Product & Market Manager, Kolbe Windows & Doors.
