 8th Jul 2016

With millions of homeowners installing bi-folding doors into their homes, we thought this would be the perfect time to explain what all of the fuss is about, especially with it being summer. Constantly increasing in popularity, these unique doors offer a great alternative to traditional patio doors, whilst also overcoming many common restrictions. If you’re still on the fence as to whether bi-folds are for you, here are five advantages that come with having these unique features installed into your home. Bearing in mind these home improvements are made to adapt to as many living situations as possible, so if you think your home is inadequate for bi-folds, remember that they can be personalised to your taste and style of property.

Increase airflow

The summer months are increasing in temperature on a day to day basis, and without sufficient airflow in the home, it can often make for an uncomfortable living space. By installing bi-folds, you’ll have a better chance of creating good airflow through your living spaces, keeping you nice and cool throughout those hot summer days.

Safer for your children

If you have young children, you’re probably already aware that they love to play outside, however this can become difficult when they are unsupervised. By installing bi-folds you can allow your children to enjoy their summer in the garden, whilst being able to keep a close eye on them through your adaptable bi-folding doors.

Cheaper Bills

Think of these doors as an investment, they’ll save you money on your electric and heating bills, whether they are open or closed. You won’t need to invest in fans or air conditioning systems with the cool summer breeze flowing through your home. When the bi-folds are shut, they will secure any heat in the house, meaning your energy usage can come down.

A focal point of your home

Aside from the practical points, bi-folding doors look stunning. They add a wow-factor to any home, and soon become the focal point to your living space. Building your decorative features around them will result in an elegant, innovative appearance to your property.

Utilising your space

If you feel that your room lacks sufficient space, then bi-folding doors can be the answer. Bi-folds will interact your living space with your outside space, creating a much larger area to socialise and entertain friends. The more natural light entering your home, the bigger it will appear - not to mention the doors take up very little space inside your home when they are open.

As you can see, there are many different advantages that come with having bi-folds installed. If you’re still unsure, take a look at some of the different styles we have available in our gallery!
