If you’re taking the next big building step and adding on a new bedroom to your home, then you know that choosing between the many different building materials for your new bedroom can be difficult at best. With so many different colors, styles and design features, it can be enough to make your head spin with options. So when it comes time to think about exterior doors for a balcony, veranda or patio addition, it’s something that often gets ignored.

This double door design is so often employed as an exterior door for a bedroom that it has to be at the top of the list. Double doors work perfectly for any exterior balcony, deck or patio space. Whether it’s two stories in the air or two feet off the ground, the double door design of a French door makes any outdoor room come alive. French doors can also serve as a window when window inserts are added to the core of the door. With the addition of sidelights, a French door can provide the same look as a bank of windows, but be one hundred times more accessible. Ventilation is at a premium on gorgeous autumn and spring days, making French doors a fantastic choice for a new bedroom addition.
Some room additions just don’t have the real estate to add large double doors. While a single swing door with a window insert can really lend a great look to your new bedroom space, it just doesn’t have the same appeal as a French door. But don’t give up just yet. With the addition of sidelights to your single panel door, you’ll really open up the space without compromising it. Window sidelights come in a huge variety of shapes, sizes and styles, so no matter what amount of space your bedroom space has, you can still have the natural lighting you need to make your new bedroom space pop.
No matter what style of door you plan on installing for your new bedroom veranda, balcony or patio, you can be sure that adding a window insert is in your best interests. With the addition of a glass oval, rectangle or square window insert, you get to kill two birds with one stone. You get a great looking door-both inside and out, and you get the natural light you need to make your new bedroom addition come to life. What really makes window inserts great is that they are very functional. From frosted to etched to stained glass, you’ll get one of the best looking glass windows on the block that lets natural light in, while keeping your privacy private.
