They are considered more classic, making them ideal for traditional homes. French doors are great for moving furniture that doesn’t fit the front door with their wide-open space. However, their frames are usually thicker than sliding glass doors.
On the other hand, gliding or sliding patio doors are made of larger glass panes and slide open and close. Their smooth operation makes them ideal for homes with elderly people and physically-challenged individuals.
