(BPT) - Have you ever seen images of beautiful homes with wide expanses of open walls, leading out to sun-drenched patios with infinity pools that fade into the bright blue sky, and thought, “I want that”? If so, you’re like many people in a growing trend to bring the outside in.

When designing homes, architects often start from the inside out with the focal point of the home, which is commonly the room with the best view and outdoor connection. To maximize this part of the house, it’s important to start with the right door to frame the view and maximize the available light into your home. As you can see from these examples, large format sliding glass walls are the perfect way to bring the outside in.
