French patio doors open all the way for an unobstructed view of the outdoors. This double-door style can make your room feel brighter and bigger. It lets in ample natural light.
You can decide how wide to open them—just a crack or all the way—to let in cool breezes during the summer. Wide panes of glass hold on to the sun’s glow during the winter, helping keep your room pleasant.
French-style doors open inward or outward, depending on the model. They need more room to fully open—especially for doors that open inward.
They can open wider than a single-panel sliding door. A sliding door can only open to one side. It’s also restricted by its frame.
