Why French Swing Doors are the Perfect Option for Your Contemporary Home Design
Friday, February 21 2020


If you are remodeling your home, you are probably considering partial, if not full, door and window replacement. Upgrading your doors and windows can really modernize your space and help with energy efficiency and soundproofing.

If you are considering replacing the exterior patio doors in your home, you might be aware that you have many options—folding and sliding doors are popular home design trends right now, however not all homes can easily accommodate huge openings like these systems require. Many older homes are not equipped with the proper engineering to support that kind of opening, and it could take a lot of money and resources to fulfill the building code requirements.

If your home isn’t suited for folding or sliding door systems, it doesn’t mean you can’t create an expansive opening that will blur the lines between your indoor and outdoor living spaces—French swing doors are a perfect alternative to folding and sliding doors.

French swing doors are a classic and tasteful option that will compliment any home design style. Though they’re not quite as large as folding or sliding doors, French swings will still create that indoor/outdoor connection you’re searching for.

French swings are simple to operate and offer easy access to your outdoor space. When closed they offer plenty of natural light and expansive views, and when opened they create excellent airflow and a smooth transition between your indoor living space and outdoor entertaining area.

At AG Millworks, we handcraft your French Swing doors with the highest quality materials and offer you a totally custom system. Our limitless design options ensure that you will receive unique door systems that will add luxury and elegance into your home design.

If you’re thinking French doors are an old and outdated design, think again; French swings can be made with narrow stiles and in contemporary exterior clad colors like black or white. The impressive hardware options and finishes further enhance the design, making it the perfect option for your project.
