Many Styles and Designs Available in Breathtaking Exterior Doors
Double doors that contain glass are also called French Doors. French doors originated in France during the Renaissance period and began as windows that reached to the floor and opened out onto small balconies. The purpose of these windows was to let a maximum amount of sunlight into the home for a longer period of the day at a time before electricity. The Renaissance style focused on geometry, symmetry, and proportion. The light allowed by these window-doors provided a sense of openness, structure, and beauty. Eventually, the doors grew in size (as did the balconies) and became the beautiful doors still enjoyed in many homes of today.
What are the Options Available in Double Doors?
With many unique and different types of wood, colors, and options, double doors can express the personal taste of those who choose them for their entrances. Mahogany and alder in various colors and textures provide quality and beauty in their selection. The wood species can be as exotic as sapele wood, an African wood prized for its hardness and interesting texture. This wood is a reddish-brown color which darkens and becomes richer over time. It is also used as beautiful flooring in discriminating homes and is wood-crafted into fine furniture. Once you have decided which wood to use, other options to consider are the shape of the door, incorporating glass of etched texture or simple lines, and the use of sidelights or transoms to accentuate the wood grains.
