Enhance Your Home’s Look with Proper French Door Placement
Do you often dream of installing a French door? Although they are getting a good reputation as patio doors, French doors are not only confined to this one space of the house. Find out below how you can further improve your home’s look with proper French door placement.
In a Parallel Series
One is not enough anymore. Place French Doors side by side to achieve an indoor-outdoor seamless transition. Instead of just one French Door blurring the threshold from outside-in to inside-out, install the same pair of doors in a row to achieve a wall illusion of ribbon windows. This French door placement is best for high-traffic zones with visitors coming to and fro, such as when you host a party in an outdoor entertainment area overlooking a garden view.
Twin Access Points
Link two interconnecting spaces of your home with French Doors. This particular door placement enhances your uninterrupted line of sight — offering an optical illusion of an open-plan living even without the need to take down your interior walls. Moreover, when it comes to noise reduction, this hinged-door placement poses a big advantage over the inflexible open-plan layout since French Doors can serve as an acoustic barrier when closed.
Balcony Door Feature
Connect with the scenic views of your home through the French door placement on your balcony. French doors can be calibrated to operate in-swing or out-swing according to your needs, so it is wise to do an initial thorough assessment on the specified area and fixtures before installing in place since French Doors take up space when operated.
Open Living and Dining
Your home could present a uniform color scheme all-around, and this is where open-plan layout comes into play. When you install French doors to connect your living and dining areas, it can pick up on the design cues and enhance the overall aesthetic look of your home. Likewise, when your living or dining room is deficient of natural light and ventilation, the proper French Door placement can help you transform what was once a dim-lit area into an airy, light-filled space — giving you a much needed illumination for your household tasks.
Corner window serves as a cornerstone of minimalist and contemporary architecture. To imitate this feature, mix it up by positioning French Doors perpendicularly in corners instead of the predictable parallel door placement on a wall. Not only will this create a fresh and stunning look for your home aesthetically, you are guaranteed of maximal breathtaking views with its multiple-angled sightlines.
