French doors are becoming quite popular in the Perth area. They let in a lot of light and provide a great view. In addition, their unique design can be very attractive when designed correctly. Here are few benefits you may not know about french doors.
French Doors: the Hidden Benefits
When you replace your old doors with french doors, it modernises your home for much less money than other renovations. Some of our customers have chosen to replace entire walls with french doors. This provides a smooth transition between the exterior and the interior. This creates an illusion of more space, due to the ample light that is allowed in and the fact that it makes the outdoors look like part of your home.
In warm weather, french doors are a perfect way to increase your effective living space because they can be opened to turn your patio or alfresco area into part of your home. They also allow fresh air into your home, which can be a welcome addition.
Some people who have older french doors choose to have us build them new ones. Our custom french doors are far superior to older french doors due to design and workmanship. They provide better security than old french doors. They are also more energy efficient because timber and our WA-sourced glass are better insulators than older generation doors are.
Our custom french doors are more durable than older doors and require less maintenance. Some are concerned about privacy, but we can provide tinting or opaque glass panes.
Interior French Doors
French doors are also great for separating rooms in the interior of your home. This allows a lot more light to come through, making the rooms seem larger and more connected. As with the exterior doors, the increased light makes your rooms appear larger. We can even design an open archway to give you the option of combining both rooms or leaving them separate depending on what you need that day.
