Interior French Doors will beautifully accentuate any room with their design, and also amplify the light and increase the brightness of your home.
One Lite French Doors
One lite french doors, as the term states, only have one piece of glass in a door, usually with a wood frame, on the stiles and rails.
You can buy glass with a frosted look, or just clear glass with decorative patterns that you can see through. Some patterns can be seen through up close, and get more blurred as the distance increases.
Doors are usually sold with tempered safety glass, regardless of the glass design.
Divided Lite French Doors
Divided Lite means that the door has multiple pieces of glass in each door. These are commonly made in five, ten, and fifteen lite designs. Other designs may also be available, depending upon the manufacturer.
The first type is divided lite doors with wood mullions between the glass, with glass used for the separate pieces. These are called true divided lite french doors. Some companies also manufacture divided lite french doors, where there is really only one piece of glass, and the wood mullion is all one connected piece over the glass.
Bifold French Doors
Bifold french doors, when available, are usually one lite or 5 lite doors.
These bifolds can be used as standard bifold units or as multifold units, depending upon the hardware. With glass as an option, theses doors are more normally used between rooms, or in hallways, to let light through.
