We’re in the process of remodeling our house, and I’ve spent countless hours poring over catalogs, the internet, Pinterest, and home and garden shows, so I know EXACTLY what I want. Last year’s project was our garden space, which we designed with the help of a professional landscaper and it is absolutely gorgeous. Given that we love the look of our new outdoor space and the remodel includes an exterior eating space with outdoor kitchen, we wanted to be able to see and use our exterior as much as our interior.

One solution to our dilemma would be, of course, a new patio door, but not just anything will do. We started looking into what Milgard had to offer. They have plenty of options, but one in particular made me practically swoon. Have you ever eaten al fresco, perhaps at an urban restaurant that has those big open garage door-like windows, or on a holiday sitting in the sun watching the surf as the sun sets? If so, then you know that while the food might be so-so, it is elevated by the view and the fresh air. Eating outside has a special feeling to it, and the folks at Milgard have a great solution: a Moving Glass Wall System. Available in custom sizes for remodeling projects, we’re considering adding this patio door style to our home to help us fully enjoy indoor-outdoor living. Plus, we can choose a color that echoes our chosen palette.

Upon doing further research, I was surprised to learn how easy it is to open and close these glass walls. We will need four huge panels to make our dream come true, so the thought that escaping to the outdoors requires so little exertion is very appealing. Not only will it bring the outdoors inside, but it will also expand our living space, which is a huge plus. We’re already imagining the benefits of looking out into the garden, watching the hummingbirds or just enjoying the view of the roses. And, those al fresco dinners outdoors will help us enjoy our new landscaping.

One of the best things about remodeling is having a vision and making that dream or vision come to life. As an avid gardener, nature lover, and hostess to numerous get-togethers, it’s important to find something that meets all my needs. With so many options to choose from, it’s also important to do your research. Thus far, it looks like this is it! I like what I see with this company and all the options that they currently have available. So, hopefully, by this time next year we will have our own Milgard Moving Glass Wall System in place.

I’ve found exactly what I want, and I’m looking forward to many years of endless enjoyment that I’m certain this particular patio door will provide. Perhaps, you might consider doing the same”¦embrace indoor-outdoor living by adding a Milgard Glass Wall System (or other patio door option) as an extension of your indoor living space.
