Open Up Your Living Areas with uPVC French Doors

21st December 2021 |


White uPVC French Door

French doors are engineered to swing open on vertical hinges.

If you’re looking to elevate your home with chic, timeless style, you might like to consider incorporating elegant uPVC French doors into your interior décor. Ideal for maximising natural light within your property, French doors can be thrown open to create an elegant entranceway that connects your living spaces with refined continental flair.

What are French doors?

French doors are engineered to swing open on vertical hinges. Often featuring elegant Georgian bars, they originally hail from continental Europe. Whether you’re considering an external throughway from your garden to your kitchen or are looking for a seamless transition between your interior living spaces, French doors make a stunning addition to any home, regardless of age or aesthetic.

How can uPVC French doors enhance my home?

French doors create an elegant vista and are ideal for accessing your conservatory or outdoor areas such as a patio or balcony. French doors can produce a seamless transition between your internal and external spaces in the summer, while still allowing for maximum natural light in the winter. This creates the ideal entertainment area for large social occasions or smaller intimate events. In the chillier months, modern double glazing insulates your home from the effects of adverse weather and keeps your property secure from unwelcome intruders.

French doors were traditionally used as a division between rooms, such as a dividing feature between a kitchen and a lounge for example. Slim frames and wide glass panes allow natural light to flood your living spaces without hindrance and in doing so, French doors can elevate your home with classic, elegant aesthetics and create the ideal focal point within your property.

Available in a range of colours and styles, modern French doors are often manufactured from durable uPVC. Advancements in the window and door industry in recent years has meant homeowners can still retain a sense of traditional style without compromising on modern conveniences such as energy-efficient double glazing and secure multi-point locking mechanisms. Modern French doors benefit from these features, while still delivering a sense of charm reminiscent of 17th century Paris.

The history of French doors

The origins of French doors can be traced back to the 1600s during the French Renaissance when homeowners were looking for a way to maximise natural light in their interior spaces. French doors would come to replace traditional wooden doors, allowing natural light to flow through properties. Installed as an external entranceway onto a patio or balcony, French doors elevated homes with chic, elegant style. French doors were also hugely popular as an internal accessway, creating a seamless transition between living spaces.

Eventually, the style would make its way to the UK and USA. Centuries later, French doors remain a popular option for homeowners looking to elevate their property with traditional sophistication and refinement.
