Spring is on the way and many people are thinking about home improvements. This time of year is always a good time to begin to plan changes at home; the weather has improved and as summer beckons, the idea of instigating alterations which will effectively improve your day-to-day enjoyment of your home are tempting.
There’s no doubt about the charm which French Doors can bring to a room; the improvement in light alone is a draw for many homeowners who are considering having French Doors installed…but how do you know which style of doors to choose?
With so many different looks available it can certainly feel a little overwhelming to commit to that initial choice but if you haven’t yet looked at the possibility of bi-fold doors then now is the time!
The main attraction of bi-fold doors as opposed to traditional hinged doors is the amount of space saved; bi-fold doors cut out the issue of doors opening into a room or out onto the patio by simply folding flat, they allow the whole expanse of the doorway to be opened up to let the outside in.
It’s almost like fully removing a wall; some styles literally remove 90% of the barrier and the beauty of this is that you truly are able to enjoy masses of fresh air and an uninterrupted view of your garden.
For entertaining this is wonderful as the seamless space between garden and house creates a luxurious and glamorous impression for guests and for children of course, it affords uninterrupted access when the doors are fully opened.
Placing small bistro sets on the patio area and additional seating just inside the building will further close the gap between garden and home making a comfortable area to sit and relax, socialise or play.
As the warmer months approach this is a tempting prospect; long summer days spent barbequing and enjoying alfresco meals become even more magical with the addition of lanterns and sparkling fairy lights. The comfort of having a choice between sitting outdoors, indoors or even halfway is a realistic prospect with bi-fold doors and if you’re planning a wonderful summer this year, then this could be just what you need!
Fitting bi-fold doors is not a complicated or drawn-out process and generally takes a day. Occasionally, more complicated jobs might take longer.
Because bi-fold doors are available in uPVC, timber, aluminium or timber with aluminium external cladding, the majority of homeowners will find a style of bi-fold doors they love and which will complement their décor; the clean lines of bi-fold doors mean that even period properties benefit from their installation because they will never look out of place.
