If you’re looking for something more stylish, practical and space-saving than a conventional patio door, a bifold door provides all the benefits of a traditional door but so much more.
Create more space
Whereas conventional patio doors slide behind another window or door, a bifold door folds back on itself. The advantage of this is that you open up your wall with no interruption of flow.
Bifold doors are highly flexible as you can open them to any width within their frame. You can also have them custom made, so you choose where the leaves divide. There’s also flexibility over their configuration – you can have them open into or out of a room, fold to the left or right.
Allow plenty of natural light in
Because of their minimal frame, bifold doors allow maximum natural light into your home – whether they’re open or closed.
Bifold doors are ideal for transforming dark rooms, offering more light and a feeling of space.
Bring the outdoors inside
Bifold doors are perfect for conservatories or rear entrances out into the garden because they use minimum space when open, bringing the outdoors into the house. As they take up a smaller physical area than traditional doors, you gain wider access to your garden or patio.
Unlike regular patio doors, bifold doors fold right back give you a greater sense of openness, so that you can experience the full effect of the outdoors from the comfort of your home.
To what degree you want to bring the outdoors in, is up to you. With bifold doors, you can have them fully open, fully closed or anywhere in between. When the doors are closed, you have all the benefits of a normal door in terms of thermal insulation, noise reduction and security.
