What is a Bifold door?
Bifold doors are doors that slide and concertina when opened. They are generally made from connecting panels that fold up against the wall. They contract into a tight storage area in a corner of a doorway, but once opened up they completely fill the open space.
The Benefits of Bifold Doors
Bifold doors are a popular choice and bring a modern and luxurious feel to any home. Allowing you to completely open up one side of your room, bifold doors have proven to have a positive effect on mood due to the increased amount of sunlight filtering into the home.
Bifold doors give you the opportunity to bring the outside in. Make your garden feel like another room in your home, rather than an external extra. With bifold doors you can enjoy your outdoor space, no matter the weather.
Whilst the large size of bifold doors creates a stunning statement, their size also presents the challenge of how to dress them with curtains or blinds.
