Although we are certainly not over the Winter yet there are days when the sun appears and the bulbs are beginning to rise through the soil indicating the promise of Spring. I find that I am beginning to look out into the garden more, and my dogs, in particular, constantly sit at our folding sliding doors longing to chase the squirrels. It's now when I fully appreciate our decision to install a series of external Double and Folding doors in our home. There's nothing better than looking into the garden through full length glass and better still, once the weather permits, to open up the doors onto a patio or bring the garden into the house.
The expression French Door is often referred to as a French window due to it's large amount of glazing, allowing light and a view into the outdoor space. The term Double Doors or Door Sets is also used to refer to an opening with more than a single door leaf which is within a large door frame.
Doorsan Ltd supply a variety of external timber framing systems to accommodate beautiful double doors with side panels to create a Grand Entrance. Take a look at their new, contemporary Mega Oak doors with a substantial 3mm thick veneer available in both solid and glazed versions or the Riverside Oak with more traditional features.

The fashion for using double doors in interiors has always been popular, particularly in grand properties. There has recently been a resurgence of this trend due to the popularity of open plan living. Double door sets are easy to make using standard doors for both interior and external applications.
For internal applications they have a massive choice of doors which are all suitable to use as Interior Room divider sets. If the internal opening between rooms is substantial why not consider using 4 doors, 2 of which could be side panels or look at their new range of internal doors with complimentary side panels such as the Tokyo in Walnut and the St Louis and Mega Internal which have a substantial Oak veneer. Frames can be supplied to compliment your choice of door or alternatively these particular door styles come as ready to assemble kits. Additional architrave to complete these sets is also available. If you are choosing a folding sliding door set consider the Westbury in ready to finish Oak, and look forward to spring and forget the winter blues.
