Choosing the right type of glass doors for your living space can be tricky – simply because there’s so much choice. Nowadays, there is everything from French doors and patio doors to bifolding, sliding and folding sliding doors! On top of that, each of these styles can be fully customised to suit your preferences in terms of door configurations, frame colour, glass type and more! If it’s classic elegance you’re after, then you can’t go wrong with French doors. These much-loved, tried-and-tested and easy-to-use glass doors look perfectly at home in a wide range of properties and rooms. Here’s how to know if they’re right for you.

French doors are versatile

The versatility of French doors means that you can install them virtually anywhere in your home – whether that’s in your kitchen or living space (perhaps leading to the garden), or in an upstairs room (protected by a Juliet balcony). They can be installed as a component of a glazed porch, or with extra glazed panels on either side of the doors to create a wider area of glazing. They can also open inwardly or outwardly, depending on your needs and where they are situated (in an upstairs room, for example, they would need to open inwardly for safety reasons). These simple doors can be tweaked and changed to suit your exact needs within the home, while looking beautiful at all times.

Flood your home with natural light

One of the biggest benefits of glass doors is that they allow sunlight to flood into the room – brightening up the entire living space and making it look much bigger. While this effect can also be achieved with large windows, French doors add a practical element – enabling you to let in fresh air as well as light, and move between the indoor and outdoor spaces easily.

French doors are practical and easy to use

The great thing about French doors is that they function in a way that is familiar to most people. They open and close like normal doors – it’s just that there are two of them. A lot of homeowners find French doors easier to use than other glass door types, and this makes them a popular choice across a wide range of properties.
