Trying to decide what type of artwork you want for the back walls of your home can be solved with French exterior doors. These doors are available in all different sizes and are comprised mostly of glass panels. While it is not a good idea to have them on the front of your house, for privacy issues, when you have them on the back wall, they provide a view of whatever lies beyond them. Here are a few situations to have French exterior doors installed (from a local outlet such as The Door and Window Store).    

Between the Back of the House and a Patio

If you have a back patio or porch that is often used for entertaining, or just relaxing, having French doors leading to it adds space to both the inside and outside living areas. You can open the doors if you will need to be inside cooking while your guests are enjoying the outdoor area. They are also great for the times you want to keep an eye on children playing on the porch but do not want to have to hear it all; simply close the doors.

Exiting a Sunroom

When you have a sunroom off the back of your house, having a wooden door breaks up the look and feel of it. To add a touch of formality to the room, use French doors instead of regular sliding glass doors. You may have the French doors slide or fold if you prefer that to having them hinged.

Directly to the Back Yard

Having extra-wide French exterior doors installed on the back wall of your living room creates a panoramic view of the yard. A well-landscaped yard can be a natural work of art. You can choose to put the doors in a location that looks out onto a lovely garden, a water feature or sitting area. Once you have them installed, you can make changes to the view as you wish. As the seasons change, you will be treated to new views. This will be much less expensive than buying art for the wall.

In addition to providing you with a lovely view, having French doors make a room appear larger and allow more sunlight into an area. You may choose to hang drapes or blinds on them for times you want more privacy or to keep the sun out on extra bright days. Advancements in glass have made it so these doors can be energy efficient to help save on your utility bills. You can enjoy a snowy scene, watching birds at the bird feeder in the winter without losing any heat from in the room.
