For homes across Buckinghamshire, there are few more popular combinations right now than French doors and the colour black. French doors have always been a popular choice for homeowners, thanks to the additional sunlight and ventilation they offer. With that in mind, it’s no surprise that stylish black finishes have only helped to elevate their status. But if you’re still not convinced, here are 5 more reasons why black French doors are the big thing right now.

Black is great for both modern and traditional homes

Black is the perfect blend of boldness and neutrality. That gives it a timeless look that suits both modern and traditional properties. Whether you live in a new build, or in the more rural parts of Buckinghamshire, black French doors can match the character of your home.

Black also suits any frame material. It creates a beautiful authentic charm when combined with timber. With slimmer aluminium frames, however, it creates an extremely sleek, modern effect.

Beautiful contrast

With their large panes of glass, French doors are great for brightening up your home. Black doorframes will help to create an incredible, striking contrast. In this sense, Black French doors not only enhance your home’s external appearance, but also your internal appearance.

Black is a versatile colour

Yes, it’s true! There’s not just one shade of black! No matter the style of your home, there’s a shade and finish of black to suit.

Jet black


Jet Black – This bold shade is perfect for newer homes with stylish, modern aesthetics.

Black Brown


Black Brown – A softer shade may fit more seamlessly with older, more traditional properties.

Black Ash

Black Ash – A woodgrain finish makes black feel like a whole new colour!

Of course, it’s possible to get French doors with dual colour options. This allows homeowners to have a set of doors with, for example, a black exterior and a white interior.

Versatile French door designs

Moving onto more practical benefits, a big reason for French doors’ popularity is their versatility. French doors can be manufactured to open inwards or outwards, whichever best suits the amount of space in your home.

At Premier, they’re also available in 3 different materials – uPVC, timber and aluminium. That means they can support a full range of styles, frame-widths and finishes, all of which work well with the colour black.

Outstanding thermal performance

Our French doors, like all our glazing products, exhibit fantastic levels of thermal efficiency. They achieve U-values as low as 0.8 W/m²k. These measure the rate of thermal transmittance. The lower the U-value, the less heat can pass through the material. That means our French doors will help to keep your home the optimum temperature all year round, cooling your home in Summer and retaining heat during the Winter.

With a thermal performance this impressive, natural light is the only thing they allow into your home. So, as well as a breath-taking visual appearance, black French doors can also help to reduce your energy bills over Winter.
