What Are French Doors?

According to Merriam-Webster, a French door is a door with rectangular glass panes extending the full length. The first known use of the term “French door” goes as far back as 1805. When you hear the words “French door,” a specific image may come to mind. Most may conjure thoughts of a large pane of glass sectioned into smaller panels (like a grid). A French door is more than just an entry or exit in a home. French doors (sometimes called hinged patio doors or French patio doors) are a stylish way to flood a room with natural light, and they offer additional benefits. French doors are also energy-efficient and can help decrease your energy bills.
