This is why you need bifold doors this summer

24th May 2023 |


With summer just around the corner, you may be wondering how you can enjoy the sunny weather from the comfort of your own home – a bifold door may be the solution you’re looking for.

Over the past few years, bifold doors have become increasingly popular. A visually stunning addition to any property, regardless of architectural era, size or age, bifold doors deliver a little extra flair to your home as well as convenience, functionality and modern style. When you want to open up your home to the great outdoors, the wide opening capacity of bifold doors also seamlessly connects your interior and exterior space, creating uninterrupted indoor-outdoor flow.

So why does your home need bifold doors this summer?

Ideal for entertaining

Installing bifold doors can add a whole new dimension to your internal spaces. By simply folding back your doors, you’ll be able to effortlessly create the ideal environment for entertaining with seamless indoor-outdoor flow and enjoy a tranquil atmosphere all summer long in your garden or patio.

As a result, bifold doors are a terrific way of letting the outside in. The installation of a bifold door can give you and your family quick access to your garden as well as a smooth transition from the inside of your house to the outside. This is ideal in the warmer months for summer BBQS, dinner parties and other social occasions where you might have a large number of guests to entertain.

Natural light

Another benefit of installing bifold doors is the way in which they maximise natural light. Bifold doors have a ceiling-to-floor wall-to-wall design, with expansive panes of double-glazed glass, slim frames and minimal hardware. As a result, bifold doors not only allow for panoramic views of your garden or patio area but also allow an influx of sunshine into your home – regardless of whether they are open or closed.

If your home is dark all the time, even when the sun is shining outside, it’s highly likely your windows and doors aren’t allowing enough natural light into your internal spaces. Installing bifold doors allows light to flood your home, which can transform dim spaces into light, airy spaces you’ll want to spend more time in. For similar reasons, bifold doors are also ideal for cooler or even rainy summer days where you might prefer to keep your bifold doors closed.

Other benefits of bifold doors

The advantages of bifold doors go beyond improving your home for the summer months. Bifold doors are also…

Low maintenance

Most often engineered from your choice of uPVC or aluminium, modern bifold doors require very little maintenance. Combined with a long lifespan, you can rest assured your bifold doors will be looking as good as new for decades to come.


If you’d like to create a seamless transition between your internal living spaces and your outside area but don’t have the space for a patio or French door, a bifold door may be the solution. Bifold doors fold back on themselves, with a unique concertina-like operation much like an accordion. As a result, they essentially transform a wall within your home into a giant door which takes up very little room when open or closed.


Many incorrectly assume that bifold doors aren’t as secure as other types of external doors and windows – this couldn’t be further from the truth. Modern bifold doors are engineered with security in mind, with innovative internal beading, multi-point locking mechanisms and durable double glazing.

As a result, bifold doors can offer significantly higher levels of security to modern homeowners. With a resilient locking system and high-security tracks, your home will be kept safe and secure day and night, for years to come.

Energy efficient

Perhaps the most important benefit of bifold doors is the heightened energy efficiency ratings they can bring to a property. Bifold doors are specifically designed and engineered with energy efficiency in mind, with double glazing and durable weatherproof seals. As bifold doors are designed to keep heat in your home, they can save you the hassle of costly utility bills as well as ensure your family is kept warm, dry and comfortable all year round.

During the cooler winter months, the innovative energy-efficient technology of your bifold doors will keep your home warm and dry. Weatherproof seals, internal beading and double glazing will seal your internal spaces from adverse weather while you and your family cosy up inside – all without compromising on your natural light due to your bifold door’s expansive panes of glass, minimal hardware and slim frames.
