Want to create a bit of a separation between the rooms in your house, but still let light flow through? Want to add architectural interest to a boring or unremarkable space? French doors are good for that. Of course, you can use them at the boundary between your house and the outdoors, too, but french doors are especially nice when used as a interior transition between rooms. Here are a few examples to get you dreaming of adding some to your own space...
