Interior French Doors
French doors add an attractive ambiance to your home. There is no wonder that French doors have always been commended and praised because of their wondrous beauty. French doors originated in France at the end of the Renaissance, around the end of the 17th century. They were casement windows that went to the floor. Homes in the 17th century needed ways to bring in a lot of natural light, and large windows helped in this respect. Homes back then had small balconies, and the French window became a French door leading to them. French doors can have from four to 15 panes of glass. Different types can open into the house or open out to the exterior. For interior doors, there are types that open into a room, pocket French doors that slip into a slot in the wall, bifold French doors that fold up like an accordion and sliding French doors for patio access. There are both single and double door types of French doors.
