Open up your space with attractive French doors that provide privacy while letting in light. Part window and part door, French doors are a timeless design feature that works with any decor scheme. A French door can feature panels and grids but in its simplest form it is any door made mainly of glass. For this reason, they are also referred to as French windows.
French doors provide a visual connection between rooms while also working to define and separate spaces. While exterior French doors are commonly used to access patios, interior French doors are popular in entryways, dining rooms and pantries. One-panel French doors are ideal for smaller spaces and double panel options have a grand feel. Love the look of double French doors but don’t have the space? You might want to consider sliding French doors, which deliver the look of double doors in a practical space-saving design. The glass in a French door can be clear or obscure. Clear glass lets in more light while obscure glass provides more privacy.
