Large sliding glass doors lead out to a gravel sitting area with outdoor wood furniture. White cushions complement the home's exterior white siding, and green shrubbery provides color and privacy for the outdoor space.
For a grand entrance, the master bathroom is equipped with glass-front French doors. In addition to making the space feel larger, this allows natural light to flow in and out from the bathroom’s three windows and into the attached bedroom.
Upstairs, sliding glass doors open to a cool rooftop lounge. With a wall of cushioned benches and a large table to the left, this outdoor space is ideal for sunbathing, reading a book or entertaining a group of friends.
These oak french doors open to an expansive back garden with magnificent views of the Pacific Ocean. The doors transition from the interior hardwood to a concrete stone patterned walkway leading into the backyard. Neutral velvet curtains frame the doorway for a polished, neutral look to the space.
Adding French doors to a living room creates indoor-outdoor functionality and supplies the space with natural light. Before adding French doors to your living room, consider which direction they'll need to swing. If seating will be placed within 36 inches of the doors, it's best to choose an outward-swinging style for optimum traffic flow. If the space just inside the doors will be unobstructed, an inward-swinging option will work well. Most home improvement stores offer inward- and outward-swinging doors for the same price.
