Interior clear glass and French doors can offer a level of privacy - and noise control - while also making your home feel larger and more open. 


French doors are a gorgeous addition to any room, and can be blended flawlessly into any space -- from the office to the master bathroom to indoor-outdoor living spaces.






French Doors Inside the House

Interior French Doors come in three common configurations: a single French door that is 36 inches wide by 80 inches tall; a set of double French doors that are 30 to 36 X 80 inches each; a set of double French doors that are 24 X 80 inches each.

See photos of the most popular French door configurations in Raleigh custom homes, below.


Sun Rooms with French doors

Indoor-outdoor rooms are one of the most popular locations for French doors that come in interior and exterior styles.

In this home, two sets of French doors lead from the two story living room into the California style indoor-outdoor sun room.

Master bedrooms with French doors

We're finding that home buyers are requesting more floor plans with a no-door hallway between the master suite and bath. See a version of The Bryson and The Almodovar for 2014 custom homes with a no-door bath entry.

If a no-door entry between the master bedroom and bathroom is too open for your taste, consider the look and feel of a French door entry, pictured here.

A glass or French door design works well when there is no clear line of sight from the master suite entry through to the master bath. See a floor plan of this home, a version of the Summerlyn, here.

Guest bedrooms with French doors

 While you will typically find transom windows above windows on the exterior of a home, they can be added above interior doors as well.

To make a room feel even more open and bright, consider adding a transom window above the interior French door design - this will let more light in, and keep the room feeling softer.

Very nice suggestions! If I stay in my house I'm going to put interior french doors on my office which was a formal living room.
