French Doors & Patio Doors Northampton & Milton Keynes
French Doors & Patio Doors for Your Home
Here at Northants Windows, we know that a new set of patio or French doors can not only improve the functionality of your home, but can also improve the aesthetics, security, and possibly even its value. Both French and patio doors let more light flood into your home and allow you easier access to your garden, but there are some key differences in these door types.
What is a French Door?
Exterior French doors are a traditional choice of a garden door. Additionally, they are also popular for separating interior rooms, such as the kitchen and conservatory. Here at Northants Windows, we focus on external French doors. Opening form the centre, French doors are an elegant choice that often feature large glass panes that measure most of the door’s length.
What is a Patio Door?
Patio doors let the light flood into the room as they open from the middle, and slide to either side. The sleek and space-saving patio doors are able to give your home a very modern feel. Aesthetically, they look similar to bifold doors, but they slide open instead of folding. Patio doors are smooth to open and close, and will remain at the position your slide them to.
What is the Difference Between a Patio and a French Door?
The key difference between a patio door and a French door is the way that they open. French doors open outward on a pivot, but patio doors glide sideways along a track and open to either side. Patio doors are more modern in appearance and therefore, most modern, new-build homes have these fitted. French doors offer themselves to a more period, traditional properties, but can be seen in a wide range of homes.

Benefits of Patio Doors for Homes in Northampton & Milton Keynes
If you’re still undecided on whether to invest in French or patio doors, let’s take a look at the benefits of patio doors in further detail.
Modern Sliding Door
Our patio doors open effortlessly and slide into the position that you desire. Being similar in style to bifold doors, they provide a modern feel to your home, combining functionality with modern aesthetics.
Allow Maximum Amount of Space
Most doors swing either inwards or outwards, and, therefore, must have sufficient clearance to open. In tight and cramped spaces this can be difficult. Patio doors slide to either end and don’t take up any space in a room, this makes styling your room and fitting in furniture around the doors a breeze.
Secure and Safe
Most thieves tend to target the rear of a home, however, with patio doors from Northants Windows, you won’t need to be concerned about the security of doors. We test all of our doors against security regulations and the latest requirements.
