Getting new patio doors is a great way to spruce up your outdoor recreational spaces. Like windows, you can customize your doors to fit your design aesthetic. The vast choices, however, make choosing the best options a bit difficult.
[company_name] makes choosing easy with the Visualizer. This online tool helps you choose the perfect patio doors by virtually customizing them until you find the one that looks good on your home. Here’s how it works:
Uploading a Photo
To begin using the Visualizer, you can upload a clear photo of your home. It’s best if you take the picture during daytime and in a landscape format. The upload process involves simply clicking Upload My Photo and following the instructions on the page. If you don’t have a picture of your home, you can use our default photos from the Sample Photo Gallery.
Identifying the Parts
Next, the Visualizer will ask you to set the picture scale. This means setting the actual size of your house relative to the picture. All you need to do is stretch the provided line over an area with a known measurement, like the width of one of your patio doors. The Visualizer then automatically approximates the size of the rest of the house. The tool will also ask you to identify whether it’s an exterior or interior photo. Finally, you will identify your doors and windows by dragging the orange box.
After identifying parts of your home, the Visualizer will place a copy of our patio doors over your photo. This way, you can try out different door configurations, frames, trim, grilles, and color. You can also choose your own hardware and insect screens.
Once you’ve finalized your design, you can keep a copy by printing or saving it. You can also share it with your friends through social media websites like Facebook and Pinterest.
