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.
When most people choose French doors, they usually pick fiberglass doors. Fiberglass gives the door an architectural appeal as well as lets necessary sunlight in when you wish. The average minimum cost of fiberglass French doors is $600 and the average max is $1,700. Note that the higher costs of French doors are usually associated with architectural moldings added to the assembly later on.
