‘Why French Doors are so Appealing.’ PDF Print E-mail
Tuesday, 31 July 2012 10:54

There are plenty of good reasons why modern French doors have become so popular in recent years.  Many home owners are now fitting these doors as a matter of course and this article has been written specifically to tell you precisely why this is the case!

Here are just a few good reasons for installing these super-stylish doors in your home -

A Choice of Designs

These days, French Doors are available in a plethora of different styles and designs.  And if you thought that these would all work on the traditional opening method, then you would be very wrong indeed…Contemporary French doors can operate in a variety of ways; they can slide, fold or even open inwards and outwards!

You will also find that the glass panes themselves come in a choice of different styles.  Most good suppliers of these doors will have a range of bevelled, V-grooved or etched glass designs; all of which will really look the business when housed in an oak or other hardwood frame.

Extra Light

These doors also happen to offer the ideal solution for any dark and gloomy room; and this is quite simply because they will allow far more of that lovely daylight inside!

Since such a large percentage of these stylish French doors will be made of glass, installing them in your home will automatically increase the amount of light that you have in your living space.

Better Ventilation

Whenever we are fortunate enough to have a nice warm day, the majority of us will want to take full advantage of it!  And that is why these doors are such an obvious choice… We all know that Great Britain is famed for its unpredictable weather, so a set of classy French doors will provide you with the perfect way of making the most of those rare sunny days!!!

Being able to open our doors right out (or in!) will allow a maximum amount of fresh air into your room and allow you to enjoy the nice weather whenever you can.

Easier Access

Of course, any doorway will allow a certain degree of access, but a set of French doors will provide you with a whole lot more!  And this can be especially important if you have children in your home or if any of your regular visitors use a wheelchair.

A lot of the time, it will only be necessary to open one of these doors.  However, it is always useful to know that you can have a larger access point whenever you need it…

More Space

Another great thing about French doors is that they will really help to create a genuine sense of space in your home. And this is always the case, regardless of what they will be opening onto; be it a patio, a balcony, a conservatory or a decking area.

Even if your room leads straight outside, these doors will give you the distinct impression that your garden is actually another integral part of your room!

Summing up, it is very easy to see why so many people opt for French doors.  They are big on practicality and are a very attractive addition to any home!

An indulgence to embrace…

The interior trend for vintage gold and silver gilt furnishings remains ever-popular.  Suiting nearly every type of interior; from country-chic, to stately sophistication and even ultra-modern settings – “gilt-y pleasures” in the home remains an enduring and transitional trend that is set to continue in 2012…

The most prevalent metallic gilt furnishing to be found within the home is often gold and silver surround mirrors and frames.  There is an extensive and eclectic offering of mirror designs that provide an eye-catching focal point in the room.  Ornately carved frames, traditional curved designs and bold, angular creations; all work well with metallic gilt frames.

There are many different metallic tones to choose from within the metallic colour palette – especially when it comes to gold.  The glorious tone of ‘glitzy’ gold is not a colour designed to blend into the background – its super flamboyancy demands attention.  Guests cannot fail to admire the impressive presence of ‘bold gold’ in the home!  Alternatively, gold leaf that has been carefully distressed evokes a softer, refined vibe.  Gold and silver leaf can also be combined to create a muted metallic tone for a more subtle presence in the room.

Gold and silver gilt furniture is becoming an increasingly stylish addition to the home.  Upholstered sofas, chaise longues and armchairs that feature gold or silver gilt trim create a stately and refined ambience.  Metallic gilts offer a dazzling contrast when ‘framing’ darker shades of upholstered furniture.  This contrast showcases the vivid and alluring qualities of metallic gilt furniture.  Glamorous golds and sparkling silvers fuse effortlessly with both monochrome colours and vibrant interior tones.  Irresistible gold and silver furniture surfaces defuse light around the room and evoke an overwhelming feeling of opulence.

Some home luxuries are worth the “g(u)ilt trip”…!
