When choosing new doors for your renovation project it’s important not to be too hasty, as your decision can impact how you use the space in your home and garden. Don’t worry – we’re here to help, by exploring the benefits of French, bi-fold and sliding doors.
What are bi-fold doors?
The popularity of bi-fold doors has grown exponentially in recent years due to the fact that they are a great space saver. Rather than opening out onto the patio or into a room, like French doors, they simply fold flat, creating an exceptional view of your garden.
Bi-fold doors are flexible to meet your specific requirements. They can be installed in corner areas or bays depending on the layout of your home and could potentially replace an entire wall. They are the most expensive of the three types of door, and the material you choose will further impact the cost.
What are French doors?
French doors are traditionally found in older properties where they create a charming, classic look. Put simply, they are a pair of two full size doors that you can choose to have open inwards or outwards depending on your preference.
Although French doors offer a narrower view than bi-fold or sliding doors, they create an illusion of more space and are an affordable option.
What are sliding doors?
Sliding doors are often referred to as patio doors, as they are a favourite for home owners with a patio. They are usually made up of two or more large panes of glass, one of which slides behind the other.
If you’d like to make the most of the view, sliding doors are the best option as there is minimal amount of frame. They are also very convenient when used as interior partitions between neighbouring rooms.
