Affordable Elegance Unparalleled Beauty
French doors have always been an option in traditional homes — a way to add graciousness to a hole in the wall that wants both privacy and style. But lately, more model homes and design publications are featuring French doors in places where solid or sliding-glass doors once prevailed.
One of the best and most creative uses for a French door is the French garage door. From the street, you see a double set of pretty French doors with the appropriate door knobs and such. You really don’t have the sense that there is a garage behind it. Yet, the doors roll up in the conventional manner, revealing the cars (and hidden junk). For the homeowner in possession of a snout house (one where the garage faces the street), the French-door treatment is an exceptionally attractive alternative and one you might consider when you have to replace the garage door.
