Spring is here and Summer is well on its way. We’ve said goodbye to those dark and dingy winter evenings and it’s now time to make the most of the glorious weather. How could you help to increase the amount of light going into your home and make the most of the longer evenings this summer?
Bi-folding Doors Are The Answer
Although sitting outside is lovely, it’s not always practical. You may be in a situation where you need to be indoors, but it’s a beautiful sunny day and you’d like to increase the amount of light which enters the room you’re sitting in. Bifold doors may be the solution you’ve been looking for.
Bifold Doors provide you with a range of options. They can either be completely closed, to keep your home warm and snug, whilst also allowing plenty of light into the home with their large glass panes. Alternatively, you could have them fully open to enjoy the natural light and fresh air. Thanks to the design of their ‘traffic’ door, you could also benefit from an ‘inbetween’, so there should be no concerns about having to fully open the whole door to access the outdoors. You can instead open just a single section, which will act like a standard door and allow you access in and out of the home. With such flexibility available to you, they are suitable in many scenarios.
Strong and Durable
All of the best bifold doors are crafted from Aluminium, as opposed to UPVC. This is a much more durable material, which doesn’t expand and contract from the heat of the sun which could cause a range of issues. Opting for a stronger solution will prove to be cost-effective over time, as it will be built to withstand regular use in all weathers.
Brighten Your Home
Bifold doors are usually installed to open up the home to the outside, particularly to gain access to a beautiful garden. However, they are also a great way of simply opening up dark and gloomy rooms to provide them with more light.
If your room faces away from the sun or simply just suffers from having dark windows, bifold doors could be a fantastic solution. They will be able to completely open up the wall, allowing much more light to flood in and therefore will provide you with a much lighter and airier room. Although installing bifold doors cannot change the rotation of the sun, it will allow you to embrace as much of the natural light as possible.
Bifold Doors are aesthetically pleasing for many reasons. They fold flush against the wall or can even sit neatly into a specified nook, meaning that your open door will appear much bigger and more spacious than it otherwise would.
Thanks to the lack of obstruction, they also provide a clearer look at any views - so they are perfect for anywhere which has a beautiful view, from the top of a hill for example.
