There are some selections that you will have to make before purchasing French doors including the glass type, window type, and material of the door.  You will also have to consider the color of the door. Overall, perhaps one of the more popular French door designs is that of the iconic divided glass panes.

You can find doors that have an option of an inactive door as well, this leaves just one door that allows for exterior access.  For extra security you can look for a door that has a locking system with three points, it locks the sill and the head jamb to the door, as opposed to the the jamb and sill together.

Swing

Usually when installing as a pair doors often swing out from the door opening center.  There are however two types of standard door available, out-swing and in-swing. You need to plan for the space around the swing of the door, this is true whether you are going to install exterior or interior doors.  French doors command more space to be able to operate efficiently, unlike sliding doors or pocket doors. 

You can look at the door width and the layout around the point of pivot on each side of the jamb in order to see the amount of space that you need to allow for. Sizes for a standard door start at about a foot and a half and then increase at two inches up to a width of three feet.  The standard door heights are six feet and eight inches and seven feet and eight feet.

Installation

As noted previously, one of the main parts when it comes to the installation of French doors is measuring the swing radius so that that you can ensure that it will clear correctly.  You also need to check the depth of the opening for the jamb.  The door that you purchase ideally needs to fall into the same depth.

If your home is newer then you are likely to find that you will be able to find a door which will fit easily with the standard sizes available.  Homes that are older often have openings that are not standard in size, in this case, you will likely need to install a new jamb inside of the opening to fit your French door choice.  French doors are available for purchase in kits that are pre-hung for standard sizes, making the installation straightforward and simple.

When you’re throwing a party, they offer wide, easy access back and forth from indoors to outdoors with no break in the flow.
