French Doors Let in Light and Add Elegance
French doors date back to the Renaissance age in Europe. A French door is a glass door with multiple glass panels called lites set into it. Dividing bars called mullions separate the individual glass panels in a true French door. French doors can be configured as single doors, double doors, or multiple doors. Because of the large amount of glass in a French door, they are popular as both interior and exterior doors. French doors are an elegant alternative to a sliding glass door to the outdoors, and can be used in the interior of your home to close off a room while allowing light to pass through. You can have French doors custom-designed for your home, or you can find pre-hung French doors in a variety of standard sizes and designs at many home improvement stores.
