French Windows

Why are they called French Doors?

Perhaps unsuprisingly, French doors originated in France as floor-length windows that opened onto tiny balconies. The two doors reflected Italian Renaissance design influences and French doors were used on large structures such as country houses and cathedrals. In the 19th century they became popular in America where they are now a common feature of southern homes.
