French doors have been around for centuries. Since the 17th century to be exact. The beauty of their design was certainly the divided light glass panels that provided maximum daylight to interior rooms something that would forever become their trademark. But being essentially long narrow windows paired together and hinged on opposite sides, the design also afforded another remarkable feature, no center support. As such, the windows doors could be opened out or in to provide full width access to an exterior balcony or patio. A beautiful thing indeed.
The most unique part about French doors is their glass paneling. There are infinite examples as far as window arrangements, whether they be multiple panes, small windows, large windows, glazed, textured or tinted.
