French patio doors, or otherwise known as hinged patio doors, are a great addition to any home. They give a classic feel to any space while looking elegant and functional. From the outside in, french patio doors allow for natural light as well as a patio view that could add that little extra pop that makes any space look radiant.
Front door replacement has proven to bring the highest ROI in terms of a home remodeling project. As such, new French doors will almost certainly raise the value of your home. So while the high upfront costs may scare some, just know that should you ever sell your home, you are positively bringing added value to your home.
One of the major advantages of a French door is the ability to open up a room or expose exterior light. Of course, this would only work with fiberglass French doors or doors with a glass panel. No light is getting through your wood, steel or aluminum French door. Light also has the ability to make rooms feel brighter and less closed in, especially in living rooms and dining rooms. Open concepts do help, but adding a French door is much cheaper than tearing down a few walls.
French doors have evolved considerably over the years, not only in terms of the materials from which they are manufactured wood, fiberglass, vinyl, aluminum but in the energy efficiency of the glazing and construction standards. They are popular as both interior and exterior doors, can be outfitted with full length glass panels or any number of divided light configurations, and come in a wide range of makes and models to suit any house style.
