Our tips and advice on French windows

French doors, more correctly called French windows, are very effective at bringing the outdoors in. More traditionally, they opened onto the garden from the rear drawing room, but now they're a feature in many kitchen/dining areas.

They work especially well upstairs, opening inwards with a railing-cum-balcony outside. You can also fit sliding and concertina doors that open much wider than French doors would, bringing airy rooftop views inside.
