Transforming Indoor-Outdoor Living with Bifold Doors
There’s a reason that UK TV viewers never tire of home makeover shows and DIY big builds, and that reason is Bifold Doors.
They are universally popular and our on-going love affair with one of the most versatile and stylish home improvements shows no sign of abating.
In this article we’ll be looking at the benefits and beauty of the bifold door and everything it can offer you and your home.
What is a Bifold Door?
Modern homeowners, renovators and home improvers are looking to create an environment that reflects their personality, offers an adaptable living space and allows rest and relaxation at the end of the day.
If you have a property with access to an outside space, however large or small, then a bifold door could provide you with a stunning way to add style, presence, value and multifunctionality to your home.
Bifold doors are usually comprised of a series of panels, differing depending on the size of the aperture they cover, that fold together against the wall in a concertina effect. They are available in many sizes, colour and material options and when professionally installed and fitted, offer superior energy efficiency, security and sound reduction in the closed and locked position.
Bifold doors can be truly transformative in many types of residential spaces, helping you to create a fluid indoor/outdoor flow that brings your home and garden together seamlessly.
What are the Benefits of Bifold Doors?
Bifold doors are not the most cost effective option for opening up your living spaces and connecting indoor and outdoor environments. They are however one of the most beautiful and dramatic. If you want to create a home with the wow factor, whether you are staying forever or looking to secure the top sale price, then bifold doors can deliver that impact.
So, what are the benefits of installing a bifold door?
- Creating a Stunning Sense of Space
Bifold doors are a guaranteed way of improving the sense of space within your home. You don’t need an enormous back garden to benefit either. Just the simple linking of indoor and
outdoor spaces using floor to ceiling bifold doors creates an impression of air, light and greater space than you would achieve with a patio door or French window.Although we most often see them on Grand Designs style projects, bifold doors can sometimes have the greatest impact in smaller properties where the impression of space they help
to create is felt more.
- Maximising Your Natural Light
Because bifold doors often fill a space from floor to ceiling, one of their standout features and benefits is that they flood the space with beautiful natural light. Because the
aperture is larger than a traditional window or door, the light reaches further into the home , reducing the need for electric lighting during the day and helping with a greater sense
of wellbeing and connection to the outside world.
- Effortless Transitions Between Inside and Outside
The most attractive aspect of installing a bifold door lies in the seamless connection between your indoor and outdoor spaces. Whether you have a garden, patio, or balcony, a bifold
door can remove the barrier between outside and inside, ensuring a smooth and harmonious flow.
- Creating Inviting Entertainment Spaces
If you enjoy entertaining, throwing parties or simply love having friends and family round for a BBQ, a bifold door can create a new world of possibilities for your social gatherings.
Fully opened, a bifold door creates a flow of movement from indoors to outdoors, connecting all of your eating, cooking and socialising spaces so that your guests and visitors all feel
part of the action.
- Versatile and Varied Options for Every Individual
Bifold doors come in a wide variety of designs, materials and finishes, giving you the opportunity to create exactly the look and feel you want. We understand that bifold doors are a
big home improvement decision and often a substantial investment, that’s why it’s important to get the final result looking perfect. The range of options available ensures that you can
pick the style and finish that matches your property type and your own personal aesthetic tastes.
- Better Energy Efficiency and Ventilation
Modern bifold doors are all designed to meet energy efficiency guidelines and are manufactured and installed to ensure superior performance in energy efficiency, insulation and
soundproofing. When opened partially or fully, they offer an exceptional way to ventilate your home in hotter weather, reducing the need for electric fans and AC units which can be
costly and are not as environmentally sound.
- An Enhanced Property Valuation
Although we all understand that the property market in the UK fluctuates and the price of a property relies on many varied factors, installing bifold doors could be a way to increase
the valuation and sale price of your home. There’s no doubt that a bifold door offers many benefits and is an extremely sought after property feature. So, installing a bifold door
could not only improve your quality of life while you are in the property it could also enhance your chances of a top valuation for your home when you come to sell.
