Why Choose French Doors?
You can place French doors in rooms that lead to patios, porches and balconies to create a seamless indoor/outdoor living space. They are a timeless accent, which can seamlessly invite the outdoor scenery into your home.
Choosing French Door Styles and Configurations
French doors commonly feature double pane insulated glass overlaid with framing for support and security. Homeowners can choose from a variety of energy-efficient styles and glass types. Some styles allow for individual door opening, while others open together for a classic effect. You will want to choose a material that is durable, easy to maintain, and complementary of the overall look of your home. Choose doors with slender joinery if you want to maximize light and minimize visual distraction.
In addition to these material and structural decisions, homeowners must consider the configuration of the doors. You may want to install one simple set of standalone French doors, two sets, or a series of French doors that run across longer walls.
In single set configurations, you may want to add stationary panels on either side for more light and balance. Each configuration creates a distinctive style that can transform any home. French doors can also be fitted with curtains or blinds to provide privacy when desired.
