Exploring the Benefits of uPVC French Doors

9th October 2023 |

French Doors

When it comes to choosing the right doors for your home, there are many things to consider. Are your doors double glazed? Is the material robust and long lasting? Many homeowners choose to install uPVC French doors to add style and elegance to their home. French doors can help you find a balance between the inside and outside of your home. They are perfect for warmer months, offering easy access in and out your home. They also create the perfect environment for small occasions or larger gatherings.

If you are considering choosing new doors for your home, the installation of uPVC French doors can optimise energy efficiency in your home, whilst still looking fantastic. At Majestic Designs, we understand how important it is to create a home that fits your aesthetic vision, without compromising on thermal efficiency.

What is uPVC? White uPVC french doors with side windows

uPVC stands for unplasticised polyvinyl chloride, a robust material used for windows and doors. Polyvinyl chloride is a blend of chlorine, hydrogen, and carbon. Unplasticised means the material hasn’t softened with the addition of plasticisers. The material doesn’t require much maintenance, won’t warp, and is durable.

What are French Doors?

French doors are a popular way of maximising natural light in traditional and modern homes. Using durable uPVC, French doors have modern energy-efficient technology with improved security, whilst still retaining a timeless elegance. uPVC doors are resilient to adverse weather, making them a great choice for your home. French doors are a perfect division between the interior and exterior of your home space and can be installed as a divider between the kitchen and lounge. They create a sense of elegance reminiscent of continental Europe.

Modern uPVC French doors are energy-efficient and cost-effective. Refurbishing your home with these doors can transform your home and make it brighter. Majestic Designs engineer uPVC French doors in our state-of-the-art factories in Somerset, with advanced double glazing, improving energy efficiency.

uPVC French Doors – A Popular Type of Door

Available in a range of different colours and styles, uPVC French doors can be customised to fit the specifications of your property and unique taste. With a long lifespan and little maintenance, a uPVC French door is a great choice, providing access to outdoor areas such as a patio or balcony. These doors are stylish and fashionable, suiting both traditional and contemporary homes. They became popular during the Renaissance, installed in European homes during the late 16th century.

French doors eventually became popular in private homes as a way of letting natural light flood through interior spaces. Electricity wasn’t discovered during this era, so natural light was important. The glass panes in French doors allowed homeowners to brighten up their homes without the need for artificial lighting.

The Benefits of uPVC French Doors Grey uPVC french doors


High performance French doors will improve thermal efficiency in your home. With high-quality materials, innovative technology, and modern double glazing, uPVC French doors will keep your home warm and dry year-round. If you buy high-quality, well-constructed doors, they will be energy efficient. The materials and construction of a door are one of the biggest contributors to energy efficiency. uPVC supports optimal energy efficiency, and a strong seal will plug any gaps between frame and door, keeping heat in.


French doors add a touch of elegance to your property and will never go out of fashion. Their ability to maximise natural light in your home without the need for artificial light makes them a great lifestyle choice. Even on grey days in Somerset, French doors allow natural light in, brightening up your home.

During the summer months, you can open French doors and create a panoramic view of your outdoor space. Perfect for intimate gatherings and larger parties, French doors provide light. During the cold winter months, uPVC French doors insulate your home. With double glazing and weatherproof seals, your home will be filled with light without compromising on insulation.

Suitable for any Accessway

French doors are suitable as either a grand entranceway at the front of your home, or an accessway or backdoor to your garden. French doors can be used as an accessway between living spaces in the home – enhancing natural light in homes that don’t benefit from lots of natural light. The large glass panes improve natural light, without the need for additional windows or artificial lighting.

Engineered from resilient uPVC, they secure your internal living space as a highly secure material. This ensures your home is protected from unwelcome intruders and can even deter burglars.


With modern manufacturing, you can choose from a range of styles and colours to suit the aesthetics of your home. If you are looking to refurbish your doors and create an attractive appearance, uPVC French doors are an excellent option. Whether you have a modern home or a more traditional one, you can make a style choice based on your tastes.

Low Maintenance Close up of white uPVC french doors

uPVC French doors are low maintenance, requiring the lubrication of hinges and a wipe down to remain clean. Even during adverse weather, which is common in Somerset, this material is durable and doesn’t warp or rot. We understand that life is busy, and the less maintenance a door requires, the better.
