Are very popular door choices. Their ability combined with their attractive appearance to let in large amounts of light makes them a desirable feature in many homes. While contemporary as well as traditional designs are available these days, many centuries ago the origins of the French door can be traced back. In the early 16th century France had been at war with Italy.
While at war, the French were exposed to many new ideas of art and architecture, as Italy had experienced a Renaissance during this period. In particular, elements such as geometry, regularity, symmetry and proportion have been taken back to France as well as the idea that light could be more incorporated into architectural designs. This brought to the famous invention now known as front doors.
