Choosing Between Garden Doors vs French Doors
What’s the difference between garden doors vs French doors? The term ‘garden door’ tends to be interpreted differently, depending on the person using it. However, your classic garden door is a single opening door with a fixed door beside it. Both doors will typically have patterned glass design to provide privacy, while still letting natural light enter the home.
By contrast, a French door has two opening doors that swing outwards. These types of doors allow greater ease of access to your backyard garden and they are perfect for a deck or larger patio space. While French doors offer better ventilation than garden doors, they tend to be less durable and may cause issues with drafts or leaks over time.
Upkeep and maintenance is required for the longevity of any door, but this is especially true of French doors, which can experience issues as a result of regular use. Both doors have their pros and cons, benefits and disadvantages. Our team can help you select the door that is the best fit for your home and your lifestyle.

What type of garden door are you looking for? Garden doors are available in a range of styles and there’s often confusion between garden doors vs french doors vs patio doors. Our team will help you choose the style that’s the right fit for your home.
Exterior Garden Doors
Your standard garden door is built to withstand the elements and serve as a beautiful entryway into your garden. Most exterior garden doors have one opening door and one fixed door, both with large windows. You will commonly see these garden doors with patterned glass designs.
French Garden Doors
French doors are double-opening sets of doors, with either one or two frames on either side. This type of garden door allows easy access to the outside and brings a classic, luxurious look to your home.
Garden Patio Doors
Looking for a garden door that doubles as a patio door? Patio doors are typically constructed from large glass panels that will slide to one side, in order to allow easy access to the outdoors. If you have a garden with a beautiful patio, this style of door is a great choice.
