With mortgages requiring heavy deposits in support, and with the fluctuation of house prices, many people are today opting to stay put and turn their own home into a dream home. Yesterday I looked at beautiful roof lanterns that could make your house a haven of light, today I’m turning my attention to doors that could also have the same effect, and could help you to make your living space more open plan, or bring your garden area into your home.
Aluminium bifold doors come in both internal and external options. These low maintenance doors can be used to separate a living room or kitchen from a conservatory, but can then be opened fully to create a huge, open plan living space. This can be good if you are people who love to throw parties and entertainment as it gives you plenty more room, but means you can opt back for smaller, cosier spaces when the party is over. In addition, by opting for internal bifold doors to separate a conservatory, you give your home an added layer of security, closing off your back door and garden area from the rest of your home. The use of solar controlled double glazing sealed units effectively make the doors more energy efficient too – and anything that cuts energy bills must be a bonus.
For external doors I love the idea that the creates an opening to your outdoor space, making your conservatory, extension or kitchen almost an add on to your garden. Again the addition of natural light is a huge positive for these kind of doors, especially on beautiful summer days. But they also have a great advantage when you have young children of being able to relax and yet see exactly what they are doing when they are playing in the garden.
Security conscious, energy efficient, and really attractive into the bargain, bi fold doors are a great way of improving the look and feel of your home. Add in the fact that they come in a range of colours, and can even be different colours on each side, and you get something that can match any decor or style of home.
