Swinging patio doors are available in two variations: French hinged and center hinged. Both styles are hinged and can swing into or out of your home. Below, we will dive into the differences between both swinging patio doors so that you can make the best decision for your home.
French Hinged Patio Door
French Hinged Patio Doors allow you to choose which way you want the door to swing; whether inward or outward.
What are the key benefits of French hinged patio doors?
A French hinged patio door is easy to open, affords a wide and beautiful view and adds elegance to any home. With both door panels opening, you will have more clearance than with a sliding patio door for bringing large items in or out of your home. Learn more here.
