Oak French Doors
French doors are also known by the name of Pattern 10 Oak Doors. The majority of Pattern 10 wooden doors or oak French doors are made with either oak veneer or engineered oak, whereas the majority of our french doors are made of 100% solid oak.
We do stock a small range of engineered oak French doors but the Solid oak doors are far better placed to deal with wear and tear such as dog scratches, since there simply is no veneer to start peeling off. We offer a variety of products for either internal or external use.
Final finishing can be done with hardwax oils, we particularly recommend Treatex Hardwax oils for all our Oak Doors due to its high moisture content helping to prevent moisture transfer.
Solid Oak French Doors create a large entranceway for people to walk through. They are often used for rear entrances, creating a beautiful passageway into the outdoors and backyard of the home. French Interior Doors actually help to create a welcoming and gorgeous entranceway that people love for their aesthetic appeal. It is most common for Interior French Doors to have an element of glass in their design, typically lengthwise. Using a lot of glass can help create an open motif while still closing off the room.
What are French Doors?
Interior French doors get their name from originating in France in the creative 16th and 17th centuries. French interior designers discovered that window-like doors with glass panes offer features of illumination, proportion and regularity — characteristics reminiscent of the Renaissance period.
Internal oak French doors are patio-style doors with multiple glass panels in different designs. They can come in different opening styles, including inswing, outswing and sliding French doors.
Solid oak internal French doors offer plenty of aesthetic appeals, thanks to the presence of glass panels. These panels can come in a grid, vertical or horizontal patterns. A one panel internal French door and frame combination can make your space look bigger. If you want more natural light in the room, two panel doors that meet in the middle are ideal.

Using French Doors in Your Home
Having a French style door inside your house can be an elegant entrance to a room and make for a beautiful passage. These entrances are also elevated by the doors as this adds an element of design and aesthetic appeal. On top of that, it’s practical in that you can close doors if you need to for privacy.
Interior doors with a French style often have glass built into them to add charm and style. Having glass in your doors also ensures that even when you close a door, the other areas of your house do not seem isolated.
Benefits of Having Doors with French Styling Inside
By leaving your doors ajar, you can create an area between rooms with no real barrier. This leaves the space free by letting one area join with the other places in your house. Many of these even have glass panels too, increasing the open concept style and design.
Even when you close some doors, this helps make the space feel larger and less closed off, while giving you the added benefits that come with being able to get more privacy.
Doors with glass panes will still give the feeling of having a lot of space and contribute to the open-concept feeling of the space. However, by being able to close off the room you can give yourself some isolation, solitude, and peace and quiet. This also helps prevent sound - both travelling in and out of the room. These doors make great additions to a recreation or entertainment area and let you keep sounds isolated to specific areas.
This style of the door provides gorgeous additions to a passageway and helps create a beautiful accent to your opening. They are just as much aesthetic as they are practical, adding elegance and sophistication to your home’s passageways. Ultimately, this type of door provides versatility, allowing you to do multiple things with your space.
Choosing The Best Looking Doors for Your Home
Doors designed with a French flair give you the ability to create an open concept design that makes a room feel larger. At the same time, they allow you to close off the area and keep sounds out. This enables you to get privacy while ensuring that you can maintain privacy and quiet when you want to.
