    I have two pairs of internal French doors that need replacing.

    The doors are 40mm thick and are a matched pair at 78"x48" with rebated styles.

    The doors I would like to replace them with do not exist, the nearest is an XL Joinery matched pair that only come in clear glazing, not obscured as I would like: http://www.xljoinery.co.uk/detail.php?id=13519&tc=3

    One option is to buy single doors and use a pair maker, but the only doors I can find come in 35mm, would this look odd fitted into a frame set up for a 40mm door?

    If anyone knows of a door supplier that might have a suitable product even better.

    Thanks

    Put a 5mm foam draught strip in, or a 5mm timber trim on the stops - or set the door back 5mm

    If the linings have removable stops, you can move them

    as woody says although if you step the doors forward 5mm to meet the stop dependant on hinges where you position them on the doors and type off architraves your new doors may open less wide as they may hit the architraves a bit sooner although if you use parliament hinges it wont be a problem
