Bringing The Outside In With French Windows And Doors
At this time of year, our homes can feel very dark due to the short days and long nights. This means we are having to switch lights on by mid-afternoon and many homeowners worry about the increased electricity costs of doing this. However, there is a solution to this issue. Having French windows and doors fitted to a property can help to maximise the amount of natural light which can enter a room, helping to improve the mood of the occupants as well as reducing the number of lights which need to be switched on. But what type of French windows are there, and what are their benefits? Let’s take a look:
Types of French Windows and Doors
A French Window is quite simply an opening which can serve as both a window and a door. The door features a number of panes of glass which allow light into the home, and also allow the occupant to look out onto the exterior surroundings. Whilst it is common to think that French Windows are simply double leaf doors, customers can also choose from single leaf doors if they are limited on space, sliding doors, or even folding doors. French Windows aren’t just limited to external walls either, they are also a popular method of separating two rooms – typically a lounge and a dining room – so that occupants can benefit from having two separate living spaces which can be opened for parties or other social occasions.
Reasons to Install French Windows
If the home is naturally very dark, or if the property is surrounded by a beautiful landscape which is too good to block out with standard doors, then a French Window provides the ultimate solution. It will maximise the amount of natural light which can flood into a room, and even winter sunlight can help to warm a room which may usually be on the chilly side. Of course, letting this light in means that the occupants can also easily see out onto their surroundings – perfect for those properties which have stunning gardens or views.
French Windows can also provide a fantastic feature within a room which can add personality to a property. High quality French Hardwood Doors can be manufactured to suit the style of the house, whether this be a traditional stable or barn conversion, or a modern and contemporary new town house.
