This style of door dates back to the 16th and 17th century during the war between France and Italy. Renaissance art works were often required to go into many luxury homes and as a result, French doors were often installed to make the process of moving much easier. Large glass panes that extended into each room improved the flow of the home for entertaining and also made the process of rearranging artwork a breeze.

Many modern homes come with French doors today for the purpose of entertaining and improving flow throughout the property. French doors are perfect for improving the size of the space by offering more light and a greater sense of open concept.
