Blurring the lines between the indoors and outdoors involves more than just physical structures, it’s about removing barriers, inviting the indoors in, and creating a balance between the spaces. An important aspect of blurring the lines involves strategically placing doors and windows.

One trend that promotes the seamless transition between indoor and outdoor spaces is the use of glass. Some architects design homes with floor-to-ceiling windows or incorporate sliding glass doors in their plans.

These design choices allow for ample natural sunlight to enter the space while also providing unobstructed views. This helps with blurring the distinction between inside and outside.
Another trend involves the use of retractable walls, pocket doors, and movable partitions. These choices can make a space feel more open. The goal of this trend is to make living spaces feel comfortable and connected to the environment.

What Are the Benefits of Indoor-Outdoor Living?

There are several benefits to creating an indoor-outdoor living space:

Nature – When you blur the lines between inside and outside you allow yourself to foster a deeper connection to the nature around you. It allows you to have easy viewing of the ocean or the tropical foliage nearby.

Living Space – Creating an indoor-outdoor style for your home helps to expand your living space. This means more areas for you to relax and entertain yourself or others. Some may find a space to be more enjoyable when the property’s natural surroundings are highlighted.

Energy Efficiency – Indoor-outdoor living can reduce energy consumption by lowering the need for lighting and ventilation.

Who Is Fleetwood Windows and Doors, What Makes the Edge Collection Unique, and What Are Its Features?

Fleetwood Windows and Doors is a renowned manufacturer of modern-style windows and doors. The company was founded in 1961 and since then, has produced some of the most impressive products for luxury homes.

The Edge Collection from Fleetwood Windows and Doors is unique because of its “zero edge” design. It conceals as much of the frame as possible.

Some highlights of the Edge Collection include:

Swiss Precision Roller Bearings – The entire track length comes with Swiss precision roller bearings. This allows for a smooth and effortless operation.

Zero-Edge Finish – The head and both jambs come with a zero-edge finish, making the overall design appear seamless.

Reverse Interlock Technology – No matter the configuration, you can experience a one-inch vertical sightline with the Edge Collection products. This is due to the reverse interlock technology.

Fin-Interlocker Lock – You can allow multiple egress locations in one opening. It enhances the functionality and safety.

Glass Key – The glass key design allows for higher wind loads without a fin-interlocker and it also allows glass sourcing near the house.

Short Height Threshold – The short height threshold makes upper-floor installation possible while reducing construction costs.

Factory Glazed Panels – The Edge Collection comes with factory-glazed panels for longevity and better quality.

The Edge Collection features a roller system that sets it apart from traditional sliding door designs. Unlike most conventional models where panels glide on a track, the Edge collection uses a roller system that is built directly onto the sill of the door frame.

This approach ensures smooth and effortless operation but it also eliminates the need for bulky tracks, making the Edge Collection a great choice for a clean and minimalist aesthetic.

Another feature includes the Edge Collection’s water management capabilities specifically designed for outdoor installations. With the ability to withstand exposure to the elements, including wind-driven rain and saltwater corrosion, these fenestration solutions are engineered to perform flawlessly in Caribbean climates.
