French patio doors swing open for a clear view of the outdoors. This double-door style can make your room feel brighter and bigger. It lets in plenty of natural light.
You can decide how wide to open them—just a little bit or fully—to allow refreshing breezes during the summer. Large panes of glass hold on to 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 floor space to fully open—specifically 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.
