French patio doors are beautiful on their own, but you can increase their aesthetic appeal even further by pairing them with certain window styles. Explore beautiful and striking design possibilities with these window-and-door combination ideas.
Hinged French Patio Doors Paired With an Arched Transom Window
This fenestration combination looks as lavish as it sounds. In architectural terms, a transom is the horizontal beam that separates the door from the window above it. French patio doors are typically accompanied by rectangular transom windows. But in this case, the wide arch of semi-oval transom windows perfectly matches and soften the clean, angular components of your French door.
Ideally, arched transom windows should span the length of your hinged French doors. This design combination can easily be achieved provided that the door-to-window ratio is taken into consideration. You can consult your window contractor regarding these measurements. Keep in mind that arched windows are considered custom windows, so it’s important to hire a reputable window contractor that can execute this design properly.
Sliding Patio Doors Paired With Picture Windows
Stationary picture windows combined with dynamic gliding doors provide a classic look to any home. You can flank both sides of your sliding doors with large, clear picture windows. This particular door-and-window combination offers an unobstructed view of your patio scenery while providing protection from external elements.
