French Doors

What Types Of Doors Are Considered French Doors?

French doors are a pair of doors that are made up of framed glass panels, with or without decorative panes. They typically do not have a center jamb so they create a wide space when both sides are opened.


Do They Only Come In White?

No. French doors can be constructed in a large variety of colors and finishes. There’s sure to be one to complement your décor and style.
