French doors are hinged patio doors that can complement any home design. In today’s post, Renewal by Andersen® of Portland discusses the benefits of installing French doors in your home.

French Doors: A Perfect Addition to Your Home

Connected Interior and Exterior Living Spaces

French doors create a connection between your interior and exterior living spaces, making your home feel more open. Instead of having two distinct spaces separated by a wall, why not one large space separated by a glass partition? French doors can be opened widely, which adds to the openness of your living spaces. Concerned with furniture placement because French doors require some space to swing open and closed? We offer both in-swinging and out-swinging options. You can save even more space with our sliding French door option.

More Natural Light

Daylighting is the practice of using natural light as your home’s primary source of daytime lighting. Increased natural light has several benefits, such as reduced dependence on electrical daytime lighting and the energy savings derived from it. It also makes your interior look and feel brighter, more cheerful and more inviting. Daylighting also provides health benefits related to regulating the body clock and promoting better sleep. With a French door installation, you can take advantage of these benefits. Thanks to our High-Performance™ Low-E4® glass packages and insulated frame options, you can enjoy abundant sunlight without worrying about heat transfer or your furniture fading from UV rays.

Improved Aesthetics

French doors can dramatically improve your home aesthetically, indoors as well as outdoors, and can potentially increase your home’s value. The key to achieving this effect is choosing the right style, grilles and frame color or finish – something our consultants can help you with. One distinct advantage of custom-crafted patio doors is that you can customize even the smallest details, down to the hardware.
