French doors/Garden door

French doors/Garden doorA French door, which is also sometimes referred to as a French window, is a door made up of panes or panels of glass. Wooden frames or partitions separate each pane. Glass panes are generally rectangular in shape and make up the majority of the surface of the door. This type of door is typically used as a style element. It is frequently used as a way to bring more natural light into a home, or as a way to divide rooms and set them apart while still maintaining an open feel to the overall space.

While French doors can be functional, they are typically used more for aesthetic purposes, to create a dramatic effect. For example, a great use of this style element is to make indoor and outdoor living spaces feel connected. A French door-style opening from the kitchen onto the patio area ties the two spaces together. A pair of French doors opening onto the balcony from the master bedroom brings the outdoors inside.

Because a French door is so versatile, it may be a repeating theme in a home. A pair, or in some cases, many pairs of doors are often used to keep an open feel. A French door, or many doors, are sometimes used in a stationary position and locked into place with a bolt or post. Such a formation is used in place of a solid wall, to keep the space light and airy and to create interest.
