What are French Doors?
A French door consists of a pair of doors (or multiple pairs) that are constructed with large glass panels, typically taking up most of the door frame. The doors are often built with a grid of smaller glass panes or divided lites, which are designed to allow lots of natural light to enter your home. French doors can be used as both exterior doors or interior doors.
One of the common misconceptions about French doors is that they are less energy efficient, due to their slimmer construction. While these may be true of antique French doors, modern French doors incorporate advanced designs to allow them to be as effective at conserving energy as any other door.
