French patio doors swing open all the way for a clear view of the outdoors. This double-door style can make your room feel brighter and bigger. It welcomes in abundant natural light.
You can determine how wide to open them—just barely or fully—to let in refreshing breezes during the summer. Wide panes of glass capture the sun’s heat during the winter, helping keep your room cozy.
French-style doors open inward or outward, depending on the model. They need more room to completely open—particularly for doors that open inward.
They can open more completely than a single-panel sliding door. A sliding door can only open to one side. It’s also constricted by its frame.
