Everything You Need to Know About French Closet Doors

Many homeowners like the idea of having French closet doors as it makes the room feel more sophisticated, or even regal. Additionally, they can be ideal for larger closet openings, particularly when you don’t want the design of the door to interfere with your access to the interior space.

French closet doors can also be found in nearly every style, allowing them to coordinate with your other interior doors or stand out if you choose a unique, attention-grabbing design. Clear, textured, or frosted glass panels can even be added, allowing you to let additional light into what can often be a dark space while maintaining your preferred level of privacy.

The cost of French closet doors can vary dramatically, as the construction of the doors themselves often dictate the total cost. However, you don’t have to spend a fortune to enjoy the benefits of French closet doors.

Easier Access

One of the benefits of selecting French closet doors is you can traditionally open both sides up and gain access to the entire closet. Certain bifold, sliding, or bypass closet doors restrict your access to portions of the closet space based on the position of the door when its opened. French closet doors generally don’t intrude much into the doorway when both are opened, which can be ideal if you need to place larger objects in the closet or simply prefer to view the entirety of the contents with ease.

While they do require enough floor space to be available to open the doors completely, few people place items like furniture immediately in front of the doors, so it typically isn’t viewed as a sacrifice as long as the room is large enough to accommodate the design.

Durability

Generally, French closet doors are considered more durable than their track-oriented brethren. This is because they are built on a standard door jamb and are typically supported by three heavy-duty hinges. Doors on tracks don’t have a full jamb, and the associated wheels may need regular maintenance to ensure smooth operation, which isn’t necessarily something French closet door owners have to concern themselves with in most cases.

Plus, sliding and bifold doors can fall off of their tracks, requiring the homeowner to wrestle them back in place. Since closets are opened incredibly regularly, often multiple times a day, investing in a durable design can be a wise move.

Additional Storage

One often overlooked benefit of French closet doors is the ability to add alternative storage options. Since the doors are well constructed, with each being a solid piece, hanging racks can be placed on the upper edge of the door, allowing you to add pockets or similar storage systems to the door.

This can be ideal for organizing smaller options, like purses and scarves, as well as organizing shoes if the interior of the closet doesn’t have more than rods and floor space. Even children’s toys could be organized in this fashion, making them easy to see and access while keeping them safely out of the way when not in use.
