Traditional and modern homes benefit from the dual purpose French doors, on one hand they bring in large amounts of light and on the other, they open up your home into your garden to let in the fresh air.
There is no better way to introduce Continental elegance to your country home than using French doors. Originating in France in the 15th Century, French doors have been around for a while. Timeless and captivating as ever, French doors are commonly used to open up into outside areas such as patios and gardens. Traditionally, French doors opened up to balconies, from where the upper class could marvel at their vast, well-manicured gardens.
French doors come in pairs, giving homeowners the flexibility to open one or both doors, depending on the weather outside. They can be hung to open inwards or outwards and can be configured in a variety of ways to suit your personal and decorative preferences.
They are available in different materials which include the following:
Traditionally a single pane of glass would have done the trick, but that was well before the advent of double and triple glazing technology. Today, high-performance glass can be specified as part of your French door order, as well as enhanced security options such as multi-point locking systems.
Whether you choose uPVC, timber, or aluminium, you still have a host of colour options available to you. It doesn’t matter if you live in the city or the countryside, there is a French door style to suit the design of your home as well as the style you are looking to create.
