8 Signs Bi-fold doors might be for you.

Bi-fold or folding doors are doors than can collapse in or out to open or shut off a space. For many people these offer a great alternative to walls in an awkward or low light spaces. Are you wondering if bi-folds could be for you? Then read our article to find out. 


You want a larger, brighter, living space without the hassle of moving.
In the current economic climate, we are all looking to improve our homes rather than moving. Bi-fold doors help give the illusion of more space and also save on current space, as they open neither outwards or inwards.

You want to know your children are safe without having to be by their side 24/7.
Bi-fold doors opening out on to your garden mean you can sit and watch your children from the comfort of your own home. Most bi-folds also come with a finger safe gasket as standard.

You want to make more use of your garden.
Bi-folds mean you can bring the outside and lots of natural light in even when the weather’s not up to scratch. With ceiling to floor glass doors you are able to admire your green space from the inside out and the ease of folding doors allows much more air and natural light into your property.

You want cheaper electric bills.
Due to their large openings and use of passive light, bi-folds can retain a lot of heat, which is a particular bonus in patios, and conservatories where indoor heaters can become costly.

You like the idea of a completely customisable design.
One of the biggest selling points of bi-folds is their complete customisability. They are available in a range of materials, sizes, styles and finishes. The most popular material is aluminium due to its suitability. It is undoubtedly the strongest and most light-weight and won’t expand on contract in extreme weather conditions. It can also be painted to any colour, ensuring the design fits in seamlessly with the rest of your home.

You put security first.
It would be an incorrect assumption that bi-folds are not as safe due to more often than not being made from glass. These modern doors often include extra security measures such as multi-point locking systems, internally beaded frames, high security hinges and anti-drill cylinders. This will ensure you are the only one enjoying your updated home.

You want something reliable.
Bi-folds will never be the cheapest option but what they lack in affordability they make up for in style and durability. You can rest assured you’ve made a solid investment with most doors offering a guarantee of 10 to 20 years.

You have an awkward shaped room.
Bi-folds don’t just have to be used on the exterior of a property. Many people are discovering the use of these doors inside to separate awkward spaces and open planned areas. Bi-folds can be designed to fit any space meaning you can have the best of both worlds by turning your large living space into a secluded reading nook with one swipe.
