What are Traditional French Doors
These double doors make the perfect room dividers, helping you to use your home in different ways. Couple with sidelights for an airy feel or install a set of double french doors as they come.
All our traditional French doors come in a variety of sizes and finishes helping you to find your perfect set. Choose from hardwood, oak, prefinished or unfinished which are all available with our usual manufacturer guarantee.
Installing a set of internal French doors is an ideal way to let sunlight filter through your home. Their large glass panels allow natural light to flow between rooms whilst dividing your space into clear zones. This style of door is perfect for making sure your home has an easy flow and open feel.
If you thought French doors were just for the patio, think again! A French door (also known as a french window) is simply a pair of double hinged doors that open outwards, allowing you full access to the whole width of the door opening. They originate from 17th century France where they were first introduced as floor-length windows to allow access to balconies. Today, their light-enhancing qualities make them a popular choice for both the interior and exterior.
Our glazed interior French doors allow extra light into your room and are fitted as standard with toughened glass to meet safety standards and provide peace of mind. Internal French door pairs are available with clear and obscure glass panels in a variety of moulded and panelled designs. Clear glass is best for creating a bright kitchen or living space but you might prefer the privacy of frosted glass if you opt for a French door in the bathroom or bedroom.
The choice is yours with room dividers available in oak, hardwood or white primed. We also offer folding french doors to suit wider door openings. Choose from gorgeous grained oak or white primed doors that you can finish with a high gloss.
We have a variety of ranges of oak interior French doors, such as the Oslo, the Shaker and the Traditional. The Oslo is prefinished, and the Traditional is supplied unfinished and the Shaker is available both unfinished and prefinished. Where untreated, ensure you finish your timber doors with an appropriate paint or stain. You can choose the right finish to match current flooring, furniture or worktops. Some basic woodcare will ensure your doors remain in tip top condition even when exposed to damp conditions or the dry heat of radiators.
As well as traditional french doors, we offer a frenchfold design (also known as a freefold system) that combines the benefits of both french and bifold doors. Their central opening access works like normal and is accompanied by sidelights that can be folded back to completely open up the space when you don't want a room partition. You'll get the flow between rooms just like you would with a roomfold system. This option can work well for those of you who want to enjoy open-plan living!
We stock a variety of sizes to cater for various door openings. We also offer 2 - 4 door configurations to suit your needs.
Here's a handy guide to help you find standard internal french doors sizes quickly:

All our internal French doors come complete with frame pack, door leaves, and installation instructions. Hardware pack is not included so you can choose the handles and fittings to match the rest of your windows and doors. Installation can be done yourself or by a professional joiner.
