French doors, being a well-established design, doesn’t mean it won’t work with new ideas. As your local expert on patio doors, let Renewal by Andersen® of New Jersey and New York Metro share with you these four beautiful French door design ideas.
Vertical shelves – Ever had a small and unusual item you bought during a trip that didn’t seem to fit in any shelf? A narrow vertical shelf on either side of your French door functions both as a display case and a visual accent. You can have the shelf built beforehand and we can build the French door to fit without sacrificing the weather seal around the door. Our Frenchwood® patio doors are available with stainable pine, oak, and maple interiors and can be stained to match the shelves for a cohesive look.
Transom windows and sidelights – Natural indoor lighting always improves indoor aesthetics by making the room look bigger and more inviting. You can increase the amount of illumination by combining the basic French door design with transoms or sidelights. Thanks to our High-Performance™ Low-E4® glass options, you can enjoy as much natural light as you want without accumulating solar heat. You can also choose from our obscured glass options if you wish to add privacy without sacrificing natural lighting.
Convert your existing window to French doors – Adding French doors to a yard-facing wall creates a seamless flow from your indoors to your yard and increases overall visual space. It also streamlines guest access, so if you’ve wanted to host a moderate-sized backyard party, this will be the perfect opportunity to do so.
Creative grille design – Get creative with the grille styles and choose something that evokes your taste and style. We recommend choosing grille styles like Tall Fractional or Prairie, which draws attention to the center of the glass area. Both are, of course, available with our customization options. In fact, whatever design you choose, Renewal by Andersen® can help make it happen, with a wide selection of styles, finish, and hardware and accessories.
