Advancement in the building technology means that bi-folding doors have never been so affordable, making this dream a reality for a much wider range of home owners. While bi-folding doors seamlessly blend with a modern conservatory or recent renovation, you don’t have to live in a brand-new property to benefit from this adaptable addition to your home. Bespoke designs can be tailored to your home so that the finished product doesn’t look out of place, even on older properties. While some extensions can look erroneous on a period property, bi-folding doors are both dramatic and subtle, giving a fresh look to a wall of a property without introducing too many new materials and textures.

Where Can I Use Bi-Folding Doors?
Bi-folding doors can be used on the interior or the exterior of the home.

Many people choose to use bi-folding doors to separate their main living space from their conservatory. If you have an old conservatory that isn’t very eco-friendly or efficient, you’ll notice the difference in being able to separate the space from your main living area in the colder months. If you’ve had a recent extension or new conservatory put on your house, or are thinking of making such an addition in years to come, bridging the gap with bi-folding doors will offer the most versatile outlook from your home.

Being able to open up your dining area to the garden will give you the al fresco dining feel even if you don’t have a patio or garden furniture set.

Exterior bi-folding doors are most utilized in the summer months, when garden parties and social gatherings see your home fill up with friends and warmth.
