The History of French Doors
French doors were originated in France during the 16th century and initially served as large windows, that gave access to small balconies. They became particularly popular across all of Europe during the 17th century. These days, this distinct style can be observed all around the world both as doors or as windows, bearing a long history of exquisite craftsmanship with a touch of Renaissance architecture. French doors are characterized by individual glass windows, embedded by strong, fine frames originally made out of wood with wrought iron for solid support. These beautiful doors can feature different shapes; from rectangles, rhombuses, and even triangles. Some can contain other shapes and patterns of different sizes and orientations. Yet, they manifest a strong sense of symmetry and proportion, and make your home aesthetically pleasing.
