Make the Most of Your Space with French Sliding Doors

We’d like to suggest something a little outside the box for those who are considering replacing their entry doors. Most people thing of swing doors when they picture a front door or other exterior door.  But what about sliding doors – sliding French doors, to be exact.

Have you ever thought of how much space regular swing doors actually take up? Allowing clearance for opening takes up a lot of floor area that might be put to better use. How much space do you have to keep free for this to work?

Sliding French doors might be just the answer if you’re short on floor space for a swing door clearance because they don’t need to swing open – they just slide to the side.  

French Sliding Doors Create More Space

French sliding doors offer the visual appeal that so many homeowners want, and they work in just about any home. But they also have a fantastic functionality because they free up floor space. Since these doors move from side to side, you don’t need clearance for a door to open. This makes them the perfect door solution if you’ve got a small room, but they can also add a gorgeous look to a large room as well.

Switch It Up – Change From a Swing Door

If you are tired of those old swinging doors using up too much space then you might want to switch it up a bit and use a door that is able to go from side to side when the time comes. You can then ensure that you use the square footage you paid for when you bought the home.
