If you’ve been thinking about getting beautiful French doors for your home, we would like to compliment you on your choice. French doors are as useful as they are elegant, and make an incredible improvement to any home. Here are just a few of the many benefits you’ll get from having French doors installed.

Access: We can talk all day long about how aesthetically pleasing French doors are, but the most important benefit is found in their functionality, so let’s talk about that first. When you have French doors installed, you’re adding doors that are going to allow you to really open your house up when you want to. Whether you need an access point to bring large items into your home or you just want to have a spacious entry point during parties and family gatherings, French doors are the way to go.

View: Your new French doors come with a wide selection of window options. But, the best view is no glass at all. When you swing your French doors open, you can really open up the inside of your home to all of the beautiful nature that is just outside. This can make a small interior feel incredibly spacious.

Light: When your doors are closed, you still have a view, but more than that, you have all of that wonderful light coming in. Nothing warms an interior of a home and brings colors to life like natural light. If you replace a window with French doors, not only will you be adding an entry point, you’ll be adding a whole lot more light.

Equity: When you add French doors to your home, you add value to your home. French doors breathe life into any room and give access to exterior areas. For a potential buyer, this type of amenity can seal the deal.

Savings: The French doors we sell meet or exceed ENERGY STAR® criteria. So, if you decide to replace an old, leaky window, or an old sliding glass door, you could be putting money into your pocket. And, who doesn’t love more money in their pocket?

Versatility: French doors can be used to give open access from interior spaces to exterior patios, porches, decks, balconies, and more. But, they’re also great for connecting two interior rooms to each other. If you want the versatility to have a small space turn into a giant space, these doors are perfect!

Did you know that upgrading your Ohio home could be as simple as adding new doors in or on your home? Adding new doors is a cost-effective way to give your home an instant make-over and add a polished look to the style of any home. At Window Nation, we feel that specifically adding French doors to a home can help to greatly improve the overall appearance, energy efficiency, and “flow” of a home. French doors are very versatile in the materials that can be used to create them and with their placement, either internally or externally. The French door experts here in Ohio want to provide you with some information about these doors so that you will come to love them just as much as we do!

New exterior French doors can help to greatly increase the energy efficiency of your home. Older doors can warp over time and allow air to come and go from your home as it pleases. This can significantly increase your energy bills in both the summer and winter months. Replacement French doors can help to reduce the money you are spending each month heating and cooling your home. Other benefits include:

  1. Newly installed French doors can also give you a large opening into your home which can be helpful when moving large items in and out of your home. Just think of that new oversized couch you have been wanting!

  2. They are a great way to let in a large amount of light and warmth.

  3. They are safe. Window Nation’s French doors are extremely strong and secure against possible intruders!

  4. French Doors come in a wide range of styles and colors to meet the needs of any Ohio family. They also come with a wide variety of other options including blinds between the glass, designer cut glass and security glass choices.

French doors are not just for the outside of your home. They can also be installed to the interior as well! Interior French doors are a great way to change up the look of your home and add a fresh style to it. Benefits of interior French doors include:

  1. French doors can help to create a natural pathway between two rooms. Open up your family room into the dining room to create a breezy space that offers a more organic traffic pattern in your home.

  2. Increase the size of a room. Use French doors to “make” a small room appear larger.

  3. French doors can be used to close off rooms that are used infrequently to help reduce heating and cooling costs.

  4. The number of window panels used to create the look you want is up to you! From 2 to 24 glass panels – it’s all up to you!

One of the most cost-effective ways to increase the value of a home is to add a new entry door. This value can be figured out on a calculator, almost to the dollar. It takes into account the materials used, the cost of labor, the savings on energy bills, and other quantifiable factors. But, installing new French doors on your home will increase its value in a way that is much more subtle. There are some things you just can’t put a price on.

Light.

Do you have a living room that could use some light? How about a bedroom with a tiny window that looks out onto your porch? How about a kitchen that only gets sun in the morning? Most homes have a room that could use more light, and adding light to a room is one of the ways French doors really shine.

They say beauty is in the eye of the beholder, but that isn’t entirely true. Dim light can make any room look dreary. Light makes colors pop. It adds vibrancy and life. When you have new French doors installed, you’re going to notice all that extra light almost immediately. And, anyone looking to buy your home in the future will notice it too.

Access.

French doors excel at providing access. Not only are they the perfect enhancement to a bedroom you’d like to have open up to your outside deck or balcony, they are the right choice when you need to add a ground floor entry that allows you to easily bring large items into your home. If you’ve ever tried to stuff a big couch through a standard sized front door, you know exactly what we’re talking about. Having French doors is like having a two lane highway. This is a great selling feature.

Style.

Every home is more beautiful with French doors. This entry choice adds style and elegance, and you just can’t put a price on that.

There are so many subtle ways new French doors can add to the value of your home. Whether it is the way they create warm shadows on the ceramic tiles in your kitchen or how they open your living room up to give access to the outside pool area during family gatherings, French doors are an investment you’ll be glad you made, especially when it comes time to sell your home.
