Why French Doors Are Still Stylish and How to Choose the Ideal Ones for Your Home
Homeowners have had French doors in place of sliding glass patio doors for a long time. They’re very customizable and draw in additional fresh air when open. When you need to replace yours, you may be concerned French doors are not in style anymore. These doors remain very much in style for 2021 and beyond. And here’s why.
1. French Doors Are Multipurpose Patio Doors
There are a few different models of French patio doors. The most notable kind has double doors that move inward or outward on hinges. This kind brings ample fresh air and natural light, making your home seem brighter and larger. If your doors move inward, you’ll need ample of clearance and floor space for them to open totally.
Multi-panel patio doors are a modern option that merges the top features of French and sliding glass doors. Built with up to 10 panels wide to accommodate wide openings, multi-panel doors offer the most light and fresh air of any patio door.
There are two different kinds of multi-panel doors, also known as bifold doors, including:
- Lift-and-slide panels, which remain in one spot until easily engaged on rollers.
- Multi-slide panels, which move to one side or in the middle.
Separate from other French doors, these multi-panel doors don’t require floor space when open because they stack against themselves or tuck into a wall pocket.
