Internal French Doors are Très Chic

internal-french-doorsThere’s something about internal French doors that make them très chic or in other words very stylish. But what makes them an even more appealing option is that they combine beauty with function. After all, doors should work as they should: a movable barrier used to open and close the entrance to a building, room, or wardrobe. Internal French doors do just about that and more.

To better illustrate, let’s first discuss their physical parts and built. In essence, French doors basically consist of a frame around one or more transparent or translucent panels, known as lights or lites, that may be installed singly, in matching pairs, or even as a series. They are often installed by pairs and swings out from the center of the door opening.

The reason why internal French doors are popular is because they separate two spaces all while still allowing visual connection between them. It therefore offers a sweet spot between division and continuity, privacy and transparency.  They create this smooth transition between rooms or even between the interiors and the outdoors.

The trouble with most properties, especially those smaller in size, is that the physical and deliberate division created by doors and walls cut through the space making it look even smaller than they already are. The glass or sometimes mosaic allows not just a visual treat but also a reflective characteristic that helps make rooms appear bigger. They also allow light, natural or artificial, to pass through easily. This helps in illumination, in brightening up a room so they look less closed-in, and essentially for the illusion of bigger spaces.

Let’s not forget how they can help when it comes to saving up on utility costs as tenants or residents can simply heat or cool a specific part of the space as needed and these doors will help keep the warmth or the coolness in. Oh and it can even keep the noise out!

And unlike full glass panels and doors, internal French doors still allow some privacy which is a huge concern for many when it comes to properties. They have the option to be fitted with opaque or tinted glass.

Because they look stylish, internal French doors can add so much personality and aura into any space, residential or commercial alike. They’re more than just the average door that connects or separates spaces. They can function and stay chic at the same time. Cool huh?
