French Doors From Value Doors
by Jade Sowerby, 14 June 2016
Most doors are either named after the marital they are made from e.g. uPVC Doors, or their name describes how they open e.g. Stable Door. But have you ever wondered how French Doors for their name? The answer is actually simple, French Doors are called French doors as they originated in France.
French Doors can be dated back all of the way to 17th century France, when the country was at war with Italy. They originated as floor length windows that could be opened onto small balconies. So why are these French Doors still extremely popular today? Their popularity is probably down to the way the doors are incredible stylish whilst letting natural light into your home, which in turn creates the sense of more space in your living area.
Here at Value Doors, we can provide you with both a uPVC French Door or a Rockdoor French Door. The doors are best placed when providing access to patios, gardens or balconies as when open they allow both the outdoor and indoor space to work as one.
Our uPVC French Doors have large glass panels and minimal frames that allow the sunlight to flood any room with light. Like all of our uPVC Doors the doors are available in white, rosewood or oak.
