Why French Doors Arent Out of Style and How to Select the Right Ones for Your Residence
Homeowners have had French doors rather than sliding glass patio doors for many years. They’re highly customizable and allow in more fresh air when open. When you need to install new ones, 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 Multifunction Patio Doors
There are several different types of French patio doors. The most notable kind has double doors that open inward or outward on hinges. This type brings generous amounts of fresh air and natural light, making your home seem brighter and larger. If your doors move inward, you’ll want adequate of clearance and floor space for them to open totally.
Multi-panel patio doors are a stylish option that unites the best features of French and sliding glass doors. Available in up to 10 panels wide to work with large openings, multi-panel doors provide the most light and fresh air of any patio door.
There are two different types of multi-panel doors, also called bifold doors, including:
- Lift-and-slide panels, which stay in place until easily engaged on rollers.
- Multi-slide panels, which open to one side or in the middle.
Unlike other French doors, these multi-panel doors don’t need floor space when open as they stack against themselves or tuck into a wall pocket.
