Interior French Doors
Interior French doors are made less durable than an exterior type. These doors can be used to adjoin one interior room to another; you may have seen many homes where the master bedroom features French doors that open into the master bathroom.
Exterior French Doors
Exterior French doors are designed to handle the many weather conditions that they might be exposed to, and are used as entryways into the home, often found near the posterior of the home, such as those that "let out" to the patio or deck. The French door allows bright natural sunshine into the home, so they are perfect for areas with poor lighting. The tempered glass that is normally used in the construction of exterior French doors is stronger than regular glass, including the glass on interior French doors.
Types of French Doors
The most popular French door types are:
-Pocket French doors. This type of French door is a great space saving door; the door slides into a wall instead of requiring an opening on a hinge.
-Bi-fold French doors. This type of doors has two to four sections of panels that will fold into pairs when opened, and usually open from either side; used most typically for closets.
-Multi-fold French doors. The multifold French door is designed to accommodate places that require a folding door in order to cover an area that is wider than is considered normal. These are great for hall or room dividers.
-Sliding French doors. Perfect for the balcony where there is limited space, the sliding French door slides open and closed to allow more room for furniture, etc., because there is no need for a door way clearance for a traditional door to "swing" back and forth.
