We’ve collected the pros and cons, so you can find the perfect door for your home and needs.

 

Pros of French Doors:

  • Light
  • Space
  • Value
  • Security
  • Aesthetic

Light: French doors allow plenty of light to filter through your home, creating a more welcoming and bright environment. Additional natural light has many benefits from warming from the sun to saving on electricity bills! 

Space: The light filtering through your doors not only creates a warming environment but gives the illusion of more space too. The additional visibility helps make your home look bigger, making them the perfect room divider in smaller houses and apartments who don’t want to commit to a full open plan space.

Value: French doors can help increase the value of your property making them the perfect investment! Whether you’ve been looking for an additional piece to add character to your home or selling soon, these doors are definitely a worthwhile investment!

Security: Both of the doors are fitted with a hinge in the middle and feature a high quality locking mechanism, helping keep you and your family secure.

Aesthetic: This hardly needs explaining! French doors are timeless and can fit both contemporary and traditional homes with our range of styles at Sovereign Windows.

Cons of French Doors:

  • Space Needed
  • Styling
  • Installation

Space needed: French doors require more space than traditional doors to allow them both to open fully with the hinge. This may require more space than anticipated in your home which may suit a different style door.

Styling: Contrary to popular belief, these doors don’t suit every home style. While they fit contemporary and traditional homes alike, you need to consider your personal interior and exterior design to see if they will truly suit your home.

Installation: If you’re looking for an easy DIY task, installing these doors may not be for you. They require professional installation for our expert installers.
