About Swinging French Doors

Swinging, or hinged doors, are the most common type of door. The door can open to the left or right, and can be designed to swing into the home or outwards. Doors are available in 1, 2 or 3 panel configurations and are often designed with two units opening at the center.

Outswing. If interior space is limited due to furnishings or other interior features, an outswing door is ideal because it will swing outwards from the home.

Round Top.  Arched or round top doors provide an elegant, graceful appearance. These doors can swing inward or outward.
