Fresh air. Natural light. A beautiful view. The benefits of indoor-outdoor living are practically endless—and so are the possibilities. While access to the backyard has always been a big selling point, sliding glass doors don’t have to be limited to the patio. Join us as we explore Toll Brothers homes nationwide and highlight five prime spaces to incorporate indoor-outdoor living features into your home.



Floor-to-ceiling and open-corner configurations of sliding glass doors can create indoor-outdoor courtyards perfect for entertaining and livability. When opened, they expand space and create a seamless flow into the patio area; when closed, they provide privacy and security.

A popular place for sliding glass doors, the patio can level up its indoor-outdoor livability with multiple sliding glass doors that open entire walls to the outside. Western Window Systems Series 600 Multi-Slide Doors create expansive areas for indoor-outdoor entertaining, bolstered by features like fire pits and speakers.
