The sophistication and class offered by a French door cannot be compared to any heavily ornate door you can think of. For centuries, a French door has been regarded as one that brings elegance into any room.
While the glass etchings and wood molding are already magnificent additions to the once fairly simple design, the incorporation of the sliding mechanism in the construction of doors have done wonders, especially with the French doors.
Lending the same sophistication an ordinary French door can provide, add the space-saving advantage of a sliding door, the French sliding door has redefined functionality and convenience. Imagine if you have been dying to install the French doors you have long dreamt of, only to find out that the space in your room will not accommodate the space it requires.
Before the sliding mechanism was introduced into French doors, you would probably have just opted for a normal door. But since such a mechanism is now available, you get the same elegance of a traditional French door without altering the space you already have just to accommodate it.

You can have them in two-, three-, or four-panel designs. The two-panel design will have an inactive panel (stationary) and an active component that slides to open and close. The three-panel design will have two inactive sides and a single active component that is usually between the inactive panels. Finally, the four-panel design will have two inactive and two active components each, with the inactive panels on the outer part and the two movable parts situated between them. All three designs equally superior, the only thing that matters is the space that is available.
So if you have a view from your room, dining area, or any part of your house that you wish to see more often, or perhaps you simply want to add more elegance and sophistication to the over-all appearance of your home, do not worry if the space you have is not enough to accommodate the traditional French door.
