1. Update Your Conservatory
Conservatories are a popular extension choice when it comes to creating more light in your home. The next step is to bring your garden in even further with bifold doors. Going with aluminium bifold doors will instantly contemporise your conservatory and add a graphic dimension to the room.
2. Brighten a Dark Kitchen
Not only will bifold doors maximise space, they’ll also allow a new level of natural light in, illuminating dark kitchens. A long garden-facing kitchen will look stunning with bifold doors and choosing hardwood doors painted white or ivory will brighten the space even further while adding a delicate, weightless look.
3. Extend An Extension Further
Even installed in a Victorian property, bifold doors will suit and add value to your home. Combining it with the traditional windows you already have on your extension will respect the historic design, while adding a modern twist with a new level of functionality.
4. Adapt An Awkward Space
If you have an unusually shaped room, you might want to consider a different approach. A combination of bifold and sliding doors is a fantastic option if you’re looking to enhance your home’s value.
5. Transform A Terrace Or Balcony
If your kitchen or extension faces a small walled balcony or terrace, bifold doors will maximise the space and add natural light in. Once those doors are fully open, the minimal outdoor space won’t seem nearly as small. Why not add interest with mirrored glass which will also add privacy inside your home.
6. Go For Colour
Bifold doors can come in a variety of colours and you can choose ones that coordinate well with the property’s exterior decor. You can even purchase ones that have different colours on either side, which is great for matching each room or the interior or exterior decor of the house. If you choose wooden bifold doors, you can choose to paint them in whichever colour you wish.
7. Free Up Restricted Space
Bright white bifold doors will instantly brighten up your access to your outdoor space. Floor to ceiling bifolds create a stunning frame to the outdoor space and also fully opens up a room, which is great for hosting in the garden.
