10 reasons your home needs timber French doors

French doors

Many homeowners reap the benefit from the addition of French doors in the summer months. Here’s 10 reasons your home needs timber French doors.

What is a French door?

French doors were invented (you guessed it) in France, in the late 18th century. They were originally a feature of the most opulent homes and reserved for those who could afford the expense of installing such an impressive set of doors. French doors are generally mounted in pairs and provide enhanced natural light, ventilation and access.

Reasons why French doors are perfect for your home

1.They provide enhanced ventilation

Thanks to the fact that they open outwards, French doors provide superb levels of ventilation, keeping your home comfortable in the hot summer months.

2. They’re attractive!

Available in a range of colours and authentic woodgrain foils, French doors can be customised to match the look of your property really easily. The slim sightlines of the French door design enables enhanced aesthetics.

3. They’re a good, cost-effective alternative to bifolding doors

Providing similar benefits, French doors are a cost-effective alternative to bifolding doors. Able to blur the boundary between the inside and outside, French doors are a classic home improvement product and are suited to a range of properties.

4. They let extra light into a room

Thanks to the large surface area of glazing used in its design, French doors let large amounts of natural light into a property: much more so than conventional doors. If you want to improve the amount of natural light in your property, French doors are the perfect solution.
