French Doors

Say ‘bonjour’ to French patio doors

Imagine, feeling the summer breeze, smelling the summer air and listening to the birds sing all within the comfort of your own home.

When considering a home extension, many of us are turning to ways of bringing the outdoors in and when looking at the options available, you can’t go wrong with our classic French patio doors.

Wooden French doors are a firm favourite when it comes to renovating your home and they can create the perfect finish to any home project. Whether you want to bring more light into your home, or create an easy access to your garden – there are a number of possibilities you can consider when buying your French doors.

Cost of French doors

How much you want to spend on your French patio doors will depend on the style you choose, the size and material.  

If working to a tight budget, softwood and oak veneer patio doors will give you an excellent look at a more affordable price. Whereas, solid oak patio doors gives an impressive, high quality look teamed with a quality performance.  

For those looking for a more contemporary look, the Farndale patio doorset has slimmer timber sections, allowing for more glazing, increasing the amount of light into your home.

If solid oak is what you’re looking for, then look no further than the Canberra French patio door range. The oak is laminated, so rather than using the one piece of wood, three separate pieces are bonded together, providing a strong dimensional stability.  

We have recently extended our range to offer even more choice, with our brand new Darwin hardwood patio doorset. The Darwin range combines style and strength, and can be painted or stained in a range of popular colours.

Environment and finish

Your surroundings may also dictate the type, colour and finish you choose for your French double doors.

If weather resistance and security is at the top of your wish list, then the High Performance DreamVu™ will be right up your street. With low U values, excellent performance and its Secured by Design standard it’s a must for anyone looking to invest in their home.

You also need to consider the style of the area you live in. In conservation and rural areas, designing your home to be in-keeping with the area can not only improve the look of your home but it can add value to your property as well.

When choosing your wooden French doors, look at the overall finish and what you want to achieve. There’s a choice of Hi-Build stain and Hi-Build paint options, whether you want to stick to the traditional, golden oak or dark oak stain, or take inspiration from the great outdoors and go with conservation green paint – there’s lots of choices to make your French patio doors work for you and your home.
