Solution: Open the door when you get out of bed.

We bought a new build a year ago. Patio Doors in the master went an option. I'm planning on installing them as we are creating a lovely little backyard. Can't decide between a slider, accordion, or French doors. It's not an overly large room, but the ceilings are 10' so all the doors are 8' - it would replace the two windows on that wall (don't worry those chairs have since been reupholstered in a light oatmeal).

Thank you for the inspirations! Hadn't thought if putting a water feature in our reno, that sounds soothing.
@wendellymax, consider a Phantom screen? They look ingenious and I would seriously consider them when we put our doors in our room.
