These days, buyers almost demand an outdoor room. So if you're wondering where to send your renovation dollars, consider bringing the outdoors in.

The best outdoor rooms don't look like rooms at all. They're a seamless scene that effortlessly blends the indoor and outdoor spaces. To create that illusion, choosing the right doors is crucial.

Check out this round-up of tips to choosing doors for your outdoor room:

1 Brilliant bi-folds

Bi-fold doors have come a long way in recent years, to meet buyer demand. They are slicker, smoother and more stylish than ever.

Best of all, bi-folds let the elements in, drenching indoor living spaces with swathes of natural light. They also open up the space, creating a smooth transition to take the party outside. And when you want to close up shop, they simply glide shut.

2 Sliding glass

Another dazzling door option for your indoor-outdoor space is sliding or stacked glass doors. Even when closed, the large glass panels provide an unobstructed view outside and the illusion of a larger, longer space.

3 Go wide

When shopping for an outdoor door, look for a design with a wide doorway. The trick is to create space as much as possible so steer clear of small doors with intricate details.

4 Block out the sun

If you choose a glass door design, ensure the glass is low-E to cut your power bills and guard against UV fading. Depending on your location and the orientation of the outdoor space, you may need internal or external blinds to block out extreme heat in summer.

5 Make it match

A flawless, flowing indoor-outdoor space is cohesive; there is no distinction between the indoor and outdoor design. So when choosing the doors, ensure they blend with the rest of the house. Distinctive doors will chop up the space and attract the eye something to avoid.

6 Go low maintenance

An outdoor room should be low maintenance. So choose indoor-outdoor doors that are easy to clean and maintain. Also look for materials that won't weather, such as aluminium and fiberglass.
