What are French Doors?
French doors are doors of varying sizes that have panels of glass. These usually come in pairs and are traditionally hinged, either swinging outward or inward. If you prefer Olathe sliding doors instead, Renewal by Andersen’s French doors can also slide on a track.
French doors originated in France, though no individual inventor can take credit. These became popular centuries ago because of their emphasis on symmetry and light. Since there was no electricity back then, the sunlight provided by French doors were a welcome benefit. Traditionally, craftsmen made its mullions and doorframes from wood or wrought iron.
What are Their Benefits?
French doors create a visual bridge between indoors and out through its glass panels. These also let abundant sunlight in while insulating your home. These expand the feeling of space within a room. Finally, French doors add a sense of traditional style and beauty to your home with their rich history.
